A Bit Of Everything

I feel like we have a lot to catch up on from the last few weeks, I seem to have been super busy all of a sudden!! A few weeks ago, my mum and I caught the train to stay with Heather, Andy and Tiny Tin Bird for a while. It seemed that whenever they …

Friends or Chocolate?

One day last week, I went to the canoe club straight after work, just like normal. Now, after a full day of work, I got into the habit of taking something for me to eat before the training session and this time I had a Kit Kat Chunky. As soon as I took it out …

When Icing Goes Wrong

Last weekend was slightly different from normal, because last weekend it was Fairport. Fairport Convention are a kind of folky/rocky band and two of the members lived in the village where the canoe club is. Every year, they headline a big music festival in the village which attracts around 24,000 people and considering the village …

Neville

A little while ago I wrote a post about Neville, a long time member of the canoe club who was one of the people who first taught me to paddle. Unfortunately, last week, Neville lost his long fight with cancer and passed away. I usually hate talking/writing about this stuff, but it seemed wrong not …

Cheeeeeeeeeese

I mentioned quite a while ago now that I was having trouble uploading photos to my blog, but because I was revising for about 90% of my time at that moment, I couldn’t really do anything about it. Since then, though, I have talked to Heather, also known as ‘knower-of-all-blog-things’ and she told me that …

In The Last Four Days

In the last four days I have: 1. Packed all of my uni stuff into my tiny car and cleaned the entire house almost single handedly (as my housemates moved out a few days before me and despite all our attempts at cleaning early, there’s always so much to do that you forget about). 2. …

I Know, I Know…

I know, I know, I’ve been absolutely rubbish at posting regularly recently, but things have just been getting in the way! Heather and Tiny Tin Bird came to stay for just over a week and went home on Thursday, so lots of that time was taken up by showing him the garden, taking him for …

Cluck Cluck

Oh, what’s this? It couldn’t be a chicken coop? For keeping chickens in? More specifically for keeping the chickens Kelly, Claire and Marie in?   That’s right! My friends Elena and Danny from the canoe club just got chickens!!! How exciting is that?! And do you know what having friends with chickens means? It means …

Four in One

I’ve had so many things to blog about recently, but just haven’t got around to blogging about ANY of them. So this post is a huge one to fit in four of the things that I’ve wanted to share with you over the last few days. The first topic I’d like to discuss is the …

Cheesy Tomato Bread

When I’m at uni, I’m more or less completely cut off from what’s on television. I¬†occasionally¬†visit iPlayer or 4OD if I’ve got an hour to kill, but I never really keep up to date with anything. It’s because of this that I was totally unaware of Paul Hollywood’s Bread programme. I watched it the other …
