Weekend in Wales


After the usual ridiculous wait in the hire car office¬† (seriously Avis, sort it out, you have the details, you don’t need to piss about with everything, just give us the keys) we escaped for the weekend. We headed home to make a plan. We had a quick scout around on the internet and decided…

Definitely an obsession


with cake. Looking back, all I can see is cake. oh dear. I can definitely state that I have eaten things other than cake this weekend. Mainly the fabulous tandoori salmon, cucumber & mango chutney and cumin flatbreads that I made. Also the rather delicious meal we had at Jamie’s Italian on Sunday. I also managed 2…


I want to go out for a lunch break but I don’t want to spend any money. Tomorrow is pay day and I can have things then. I really should not be hungry after a sausage roll, a load of melon and a bagel with boursin. mmm boursin. I love it so. I have also taken…

Yay weekend


Lovely weekend planned. Curry with Mishka tonight. She arrives in Bristol soon. YAY. Phil’s 30th birthday party tomorrow – must organise card, present and outfit. Meeting some of Simon’s friends. Visiting with mum. I feel very disorganised at the moment. I have to post stuff to people but I know that it will be hell…

Lovely weekend


Martin came to visit and we had a lovely time. Well I did. We made him the most amazing dinner on friday night, which while quite small, was utterly intense and delicious in flavouring. It was quite a faff tho so I wouldn’t do it as individual stacks again. Ours did not look like this…

I have been effective


at work that is. Strangely busy and productive and I actually feel like I’m getting somewhere. Pity I’ve only got a month or so of it left. Hopefully they’ll extend but I do have other interested parties on the go. Ah well, weekend. YAY. Trip to London tomorrow afternoon and Brighton to see family but…

Rock on!


      We rocked. The gig was loud. There was lots of Metallica covers by the band from Barnsley. The club was small and dodgy, not quite as sweaty and grimy as it could have been but yeah, it was excellent. Loud music and not toooooo much to drink meant that sunday was not as messy…

Yay for friday


I’ve already done a conference call, send loads of stuff too loads of people and generally been very efficient. I am now tired and drinking tea. Plus I have a bit of a headache but that may be wine related. I am going on holiday soooooooooooooooon! Yayness. We have chosen hotels (very nice) and are contemplating driving vs…

Monday shocker


I have been to work. It was surprisingly enjoyable. In fact, the people are nice, the work is interesting, my boss wants to extend my initial 2 week contract already and the location could be worse. It is not near the shops (unless you count Burger King, a motorbike shop and a huge Sainsbo’s as shops)…

Weekend cooking


Porcini mushroom and potato cake. Very nice. It’s been a top Bristol shaped weekend. Jason, Marty & Kat descended on us for the weekend. Friday night was full of drinking and kudu steaks at the Zulu Cafe. Saturday was hectic amounts of sightseeing and a delicious dinner out. Sunday was mainly about drinking lots of water…
