Im not answering that damn phone.

because..well just because.

I talked to my friend last night that i thought id made a mess of our frendship and he seems ok with me, but you never can tell with that one. I dont want to fall out with him as i cherish our friendship so much i really enjoy spending time with him, i need to stop getting drunk around him though 😦 its ok if he’s drinking too but if hes getting stoned i have to drink because i get bored otherwise.

I also need to learn how to know when im over staying my welcome. Ive been getting better of late but…i dunno maybe im just a bit para.

Maybe we should only hang out in the day then i wouldnt get drunk and shout at him 😦

We once had an amazing time in london together and we went to leamington a few months ago and it was the most pointless trip but it was funnnn. I miss our good times together and want them back 😦

Valentines day: Conclusion

So it was the usual boring day 😦

I was ment to see a friend but as usual boys are shit. Why organise to go out when your just going to bail?? REDDICK! I could have organised to do something else with friends. I honestly dont mind if you bail just let me know so i can do something else.

I seem to be falling out with all my male friends at the moment…is it time for lesbianism now?

Anyways i did my make-up all nice for nothing.

On a brighter note im making cakes for about 1000 hungry bikers on sunday and ive only got a week to make them all, do you know how much they eat??? Itsa a challenge, should be fun.

Ta Ra

Chinese new year.

Because Chinese new year signifies spring and is celebrated just after the first harvest, im planting  some chillies and some herbs (basil, coriander and chives).

Im the year of the dragon(1988)! so this is ment to be me:

Dragons symbolize such character traits as dominance and ambition. Dragons prefer to live by their own rules and if left on their own, are usually successful. They’re driven, unafraid of challenges, and willing to take risks. They’re passionate in all they do and they do things in grand fashion. Unfortunately, this passion and enthusiasm can leave Dragons feeling exhausted and interestingly, unfulfilled.

While Dragons frequently help others, rarely will they ask for help. Others are attracted to Dragons, especially their colorful personalities, but deep down, Dragons prefer to be alone. Perhaps that is because they’re most successful when working alone. Their preference to be alone can come across as arrogance or conceitedness, but these qualities aren’t applicable. Dragons have tempers that can flare fast!

Health

Considering their hard-working nature, Dragons are healthy overall. They do get stressed and suffer from periodic tension/headaches, likely because they take so many risks. Dragons could benefit from incorporating mild activity into their lives. Yoga or walking would be good as these activities can work both their minds and their bodies.

Career

Dragons prefer leading to being led. Jobs that allow them to express their creativity are good choices. Some good careers include: inventor, manager, computer analyst, lawyer, engineer, architect, broker, and sales person.

Relationships

Dragons will give into love, but won’t give up their independence. Because they have quick, sometimes vengeful tempers, their partners need to be tough-skinned. Dragons enjoy others who are intriguing, and when they find the right partners, they’ll usually commit to that person for life.

Earth Dragons – Years 1928 and 1988

More rooted in the ground, Earth Dragons make better decisions because they act more rationally. Earth Dragons are level-headed and able to control their behaviors. They’re more supportive of others, but they prefer being admired by others.

Well the “others are attrcted to dragons” bit isnt true and the careers bit isnt true but i guess the whole relationship bit is true in my case.

All a load of shit though really isnt it.

Valentines day.

Im not sure why people find this day so depressing, i never really think about it, i dont think ive ever had a valentines…apart from some guy from cov that bought me a jack skeleton model. romantic bastard.

I just use the day for an excuse usually to make someones day a bit better by sending a card and letting them know that i love them 🙂 or this year for example im meeting up with an old friend that i havent seen for probally over a year (even though hes a bastard and nearly killed me). BUTTTT i usually have fun on valentines and go out with friend or have a night in infront of the telebox.

I did make some lovely cupcakes though yum yum

Here are some fun facts about valentines that maybe you didnt know before.

1. In the two week period leading up to Valentine’s Day, American sales of gold jewelry lead to 34 million metric tons of waste.

2. The vast majority of roses sold for Valentine’s Day in the U.S. are imported from South America, wasting fossil fuels.

3. Valentine’s Day traces its roots to an ancient pagan holiday called Lupercalia, in which men stripped naked, grabbed whips, and spanked young women in hopes of increasing their fertility.

4. The Christian martyr St. Valentine was beheaded on February 14 for performing marriages in secret.

5. Research suggests that 75 percent of suicide attempts are attributable to relationship problems.

6. 46 percent of Americans will exchange Valentine’s Day candy.

7. 67 percent of Americans are overweight or obese.

8. Even if you’re really, really in love right now, you’re still going to die eventually

A public apology.

For the last blog, i guess i didnt know all the facts, still dont.

I didnt think that many people read this or took any notice. Apart from Carmel.

Words can hurt and i never mean to make anyone pissed off.

Im sorry because first and foremost he’s my friend.

This blog wasnt the best idea was it. I didnt think people cared, i just wanted somewhere to vent. I currently feel like im self destructing. When did i become this person?

Alpacas.

I’m heading back to the farm on monday, because i start my new job soon so there really isnt much point in starting a job, but i want something to do.

Actually quite excited to get back out there, and i havent ran at all for the last few days so itll help me get fit.

I am mommy/baker heart cake.

Fishermans Pie

Im bored so i thought id show you my famous fishermans pie.

Ingredients:
fillet of smoked fish (i usually use haddock because its cheap)
fillet of white fish meat
Prawns
Tinned salmon or tuna
frozen peas
1 onion (chopped)
Potatoes
Chedder cheese
salt and pepper
nutmeg
parsley
cloves
milk
butter
extra virgin olive oil

Right so to start chop up the fish fillets and tinned fish (i use tinned as well as fillets because i like the keep the fillets in chunks and the tinned flakey) and place them in a pan and cover with milk, dont bring to the boil as the milk will separate but let it simmer, then add the cloves (i use 4 because i like the taste, esp in the winter because it always reminds me of christmas. But you can use 2 if you like a milder taste), onion and olive oil (just a teaspoon) leave to simmer for half an hour.

Meanwhile chop up your potatoes and put on the boil in salted water, do as many potatoes as you wish i always do about 5 large as i like alot of potatoes and my dish is quite big.

Take you fishy mix off the hob and sive the contents but keep the fishy liquid. Then place the butter in the pan to melt it and add the flour sirring (i use a whisk but you dont have to) so you make a roux, next add your fishy liquid and keep on the heat still sirring so it thickens then add your nutmeg, parsley (be generous with both), peas, fish and shrimps (put the shimps in at the last minute because if they cook for too long they go chewy). When its all mixed together place in your dish. Remember to take you the cloves- i ALWAYS do and someone usually get a big bite of a clove and its not the nicest.

Take the potatoes off the hob, drain and mash. mix with milk and butter (or cream if your feeling naughty) i always put some chedder in the mash as well as on top as it gives it a richer flavour. To make your mash super smooth i use an electric whisk for 2 minutes at the end.

You want the top of the mash to be a bit spikey so that it was chrispen in the oven, so just run a fork opver the top, sprinkle with cheese.

You can leave this for a few hours until your ready to cook it, then just put it in the oven at about 190 degrees for 30 mins or 45 if youve let it cool.

I think im a genius.

Goddamn i wish i had a deep fryer.

So you know how most good batters are made by adding sparkling water or beer because the gas makes the batter more bubbly and crunchy. Well how about doing some tempura with ginger beer??? how good does that sound? just find some veg that goes well with ginger like chilli if your feeling really spicy, or you could just do greens and yellow peppers.

Just a thought.
