Scones

As promised, here’s the first recipe following my weekend of food – scones. I’m not sure why I was craving scones, as they’re definitely a summer food for me, but I just couldn’t get them out of my head! So I made some, and then ate lots of them! The first step is to sieve 8 …

A Weekend of Food

The weekend just gone, I decided to come home just because. It actually turned out to be quite an extended stay as I didn’t have any lectures on Friday, so caught the train back on Thursday evening and then went back to uni on Monday morning. It’s strange, but I always find when I come …

University Style Apple and Pear Crumble

On Wednesday evening after tea, I just had a craving for a proper homemade dessert. Usually I have a chocolate bar or a piece of fruit or something, just because I NEED something sweet after tea, but on Wednesday, neither of them would do. I was on my own in the house and decided that …

Productive Guilt

I set my alarm last night for 7am as I had a 9am lecture (that’s what happens when you have to get a bus to uni – no more rolling out of bed half an hour before a lecture!). My alarm went off and then I lay there for a few minutes trying to convince …

On My Mind

I just finished writing this blog post, posted it, saw that Heather had written a new post and went over to Little Tin Bird to have a good old read, only to discover that she’d also done a list post! And the worst thing is she posted hers first, so I can’t even claim that …

A Crazy Bus Experience

The other day, I was travelling back from uni on the bus with two of my friends just like any other day. We reached the stop where one of my friends gets off, said goodbye and then my other friend and I continued our conversation. This was until we heard someone stomping with all their …

Outings with Tiny Tin Bird

Over the last two weeks, Heather and Tiny Tin Bird have been staying at home for a visit. I love that Heather’s determined to bring him down as much as possible so he’s comfortable there and so we all get to know him (and him us!) as he grows up. It sucks that they live …

Eclairs

Before I went home last weekend, I’d said to my mum that I really wanted to do some cooking while I was there. I love cooking and baking, but it’s just so hard to do it at uni – the kitchen’s tiny and most of the time it’s covered with dirty washing up. I also …

Blogaversary

I just refreshed my stats page for my blog, and wordpress kindly told me that today is my blogaversary! One year ago today, I sat at my desk bored out of my mind, probably with a lot of work to do and thought, ‘Why not start a blog?’. I’d been toying with the idea for …

Here We Go Again

In my stocking this year, tucked right at the bottom, was a little pot of ‘Grow Your Own Irises’. Last year, my grandma bought me and Rachel some ‘Grow  Your Own Crocuses’ and this is how they turned out. Basically a pot of soil harbouring some greeny blue mould – not a flower in sight. …
