I haven't gone anywhere

Except maybe retreated into my own head a bit as I tend to do when life becomes to busy/stressy/overwhelming.
I have actually tried to post from my phone a couple of times but, as I hadn't updated the app, it wasn't working and when I went to update it I realised they had changed the way the ads work so uninstalled.
Now I have to find a new, good blogger app.
Add that to the list.

I do have a couple of baking related posts in the pipeline and now that I'm all booked and sorted for my hols I might actually get in the right head space to publish them!

First thing on my to do list, however, is sleep.

Night dahlinks!

Oh, Ryan...

As a long time fan of Jackass I have to say. you'll be missed.

But if what they're saying is true, that was a stupid thing to do...

This is David.

Tomorrow I'll be picking a fight with Goliath (also know as the bank). They think they can mess with me?!
Ha! I say. Ha!
(Ok they haven't actually messed with me yet, but they're trying their hardest.)
I feel it's best to nip it in the bud. They clearly don't know who they're dealing with and so need to be educated.

We're not living in America

Remember this post? I'm sure you all do as you slavishly follow my blog.
Anyway, a few weeks (months? how old am I?!) I thought: Hey wouldn't it be great to have one of those for this summer? As a sort of travel journal for Barcelona and Sweden but also to just generally record (my last) summer (as a 20-something!). Great, I thought, I'll get one (or two, or three)!
But, oh no! Why would something be that easy?!
Turns out they're not arriving on our little isle until end of July!
Which is after I've been away and half the summer is gone...

So, I've more or less decided to get at least one and some of the bits from the states. I know it will be more expensive but that's the price you pay for being impatient!

One thing that annoys me about this whole situation is that I have a friend (old flat-mate) who's living and studying in the states. She's gone home to Mauritius for a bit and is stopping in London on her way back in a couple of weeks. If I had realised earlier, I'm sure she wouldn't have minded bringing one of these babies for me...

That would have required me to do something earlier than last minute, however, and we all know I don't do that!

When I grow up, I want to be organised!

It seems to be sold out everywhere... If there is a god, he/she certainly seems to not like me very much.

nothing to report

I've really been neglecting my blog lately, poor little bloggy!
And the title of this post is actually not true, there are things to report. Just not very interesting ones...
My reason for being a ad blogger is this: I have been reading. And baking and tending my garden (well three strawberry plants and one chili plant). But mostly reading.
A while ago (a month, two months? It's all a bit of a blur...) Sky started showing Game of Thrones. I immediately knew it was for me: fantasy, knights, kings, dragons and evil plots! I don't however have sky on my TV and I could watch it on the beast upstairs but, apart from the fact that it freaks me out, I don't really know how to work it. Besides, I'm rubbish at watching TV these days, I never remember when anything is on and end up missing it every week. So I did it the old fashioned way and bought the book the series is based on.
And like that I was hooked! So for the last few weeks all I have done is read. Last night I started the fourth book and soon I will have finished them all.
So, if anyone out there is a massive nerd like me and haven't read these books I  highly recommend them!
The whole series is called A Song Of Ice And Fire and you really need to get them all in one go as it's torture if you finish one and haven't got the next one to hand!
I have sat up until the wee hours most nights just reading. Whenever I have a minute (waiting for the kettle to boil, waiting for the iron to heat up) I read. They are addictive!

In fact, I'm going to read a bit more now before I go to the shop to get the stuff I need for fajitas with sis tonight!
