It's Sunday and it has been like a week since I last posted, and I feel it is time. I can feel it build up and in the end I just have to blog, sounds weird but that is how it works for me, does anyone else get that?! This post also comes to you direct from the build up of frustration and stress of my Sunday. I didn't get up until half 11 which was a bloody nightmare as my phone died meaning my alarm didn't go off, then all day I've been a bit on and off, not really knowing what to do with myself. My aim for the weekend was to sort my CV out, it was a bloody mess, the more I looked at it the more I got depressed and if I feel like that goodness knows what an employer must think! Anyway I've started again and have changed the font - sure fire way to improve things.
Last night I went to the local bonfire which was exciting, well we arrived 2 hours before the actual fireworks display happened due to my mum being eager however the situation was rectified when we came to a family decision to drink away the two hours. There was a live band, hot dogs, cake sales and a Guy competition, everything one could want from such an event! I didn't take many photos as people weren't whipping out their camera and I always feel slightly awkward being the only one snapping away...
We had a post lash as well involving more bottles of wine being opened and watching Strictly Come Dancing (go Holly!!) I'm living the dream at home, although as my dad keeps reminding me 'now you're home I only get to see about a third of a bottle of wine...' however for me this is a huge positive.
Tomorrow it gets serious... I'm making the Christmas cake. I've already put the currants/cherries/mixed peel in with brandy to soak it all up. I didn't realise brandy was so strong, it hit me right in the back of the nose. I'm feeling the strain of such a huge task, I don't even like Christmas cake so I'm not sure how it is supposed to taste... I can only hope it all goes without a hitch. Takes like 4 hours to cook! I'm sure I will keep you all updated. Oh and talking of baking, here is a pic of my Halloween pumpkin muffins which tasted just like carrot cake YUMMY:
Oh and I recently tweeted:
So if anyone knows of a seminar I would be very grateful.
I'm off to catch the end of Downton (I'm a fair weather viewer and only watch bits when it gets good/end of series) and it means I don't have to stare at my CV anymore...
Hope you all had a lovely bonfire night, and this week is bloody brilliant for you!
