In which I baked too many cakes

I also gave my self RSI in my arm from all the mixing/beating! (literally, had to take codeine in order to lift my arm without ouching) The occasion was my engagement party, which we had at the Hobgoblin in Brighton. The people that worked there were so easy going with all my demands, and the little belgian bar maid managed to beat 4 rugby players at a pint downing competition!

In which I go to Brighton Food festival

The festival runs until the end of September, with all sorts of events, check out the rest of the events here

I wanted to sort all my drawers and clothes out today, but only managed to throw a carrier bag full out. doing: not very much at all
