For lent, or tbh in my reasoning to see if I can actually not eat chocolate for 40 days (actually lent lies and its 46!!) I have managed 7 days so far. I am actually managing okay for now. Its hot chocolates that I am missing!
I also have given up bread to see if that has an effect on my weight!
I have been a member of amazon and love film for a while now but these new changes to love film are, in my opinion, not for the better.
Amazon does not seem to answer questions well to what the changes really mean. Amazon were very clever to begin with by stopping free delivery on orders over £10; I know that not all orders are included and you can still get some for free, but not all of them. So the difference of monthly payments that are already made to amazon for love film plus prime is about £7 so in certain terms it makes sense to go fort he prime. However the opportunity to be able to cancel when ever you want is lost, they have you hooked for a year. The other thing is that the quality of love film is not up to the standards of Netflix however it does have on different titles. The disappointment is that if there is a new release film on it normal means its crap!
Also when i first joined love film it was £4.99 a month, which for the quality i did not mind paying however with price increases and amazon making more dictations about everything; are they trying to hard to gain more money, to the detriment of the company?
So last week I was doing the usual search that starts for me at this time of year; where are we going to go on holiday?
After having a little look about I got an idea, and now I cannot wait, we have yet to book it but the decision on where me and my boyfriend are going has been made.
We are going to Cape Cod in the first week of November ( and a sunny get away in July somewhere European!)
I cannot wait to see New England, we are planning a trip out to Boston and Providence. I hope its nice at the cod at that time! I love the idea of staying somewhere to pretty and enriched with history!
I hope that the fall colours are still there! it looks so beautiful!
Today it has been ruled that in “heinous” cases life will mean life.
I personally agree that this is the right decision. The argument put forward by the European Court Of Human Rights, was that to imprison someone for life was against human rights; but what about the rights of the people who were murdered? I do not believe that the inmates should have ever gained the chance to be able to declare it was against their “human rights”.
Life in prison is no longer the hard time of what it once was and the inmates are well looked after. This respects their human rights, as they are not left to just rot in prison with nothing.
When I worked in a local shop I had a customer in once describing how he was going away for a couple of years; but he saw it as a holiday. He had free rent for a year, free food, free gym membership, free learning (if he wanted), xbox, tv and time out in the yard. He said all he lacked was his freedom, but after a couple of years he’d have that back and it wasn’t like he was going somewhere terrible.
Something needs to be done about this.
Even when life means life, there is still the luxuries in prison that don’t make prison the same punishment it once once. This is why we get so many repeat offenders.
Anyone else have any thoughts on the ruling? or life in a modern prison?
A while ago I made these beauties! A cupcake and a cookie!
They were so delicious!
To make them:
For the Buns:
100g Self raising flour
and a drop of vanilla essence
Pre heat the oven to 150 degrees on an electric fan oven! All I do is cream together the marge and sugar and then beat in the eggs with a splash of vanilla. After this you fold in the flour.
Put the cases into a bun tin, I normally get 12 cupcakes out of it.
They should take about 20 mins, but check on them!
Once they are cooled you can apply the Icing!
First I cut out a smiley mouth onto the top of each bun!
Next I make the icing or you can do this while it’s in the oven! To make the icing I never use measurements I always just go by what looks right (Normally I have some left)
So to make the icing I put some marg in a bowl with a splash of milk, vanilla and blue colouring. Then I add in the icing sugar til its the right consistancy for spreading on a cake! (for a non baker i’m sorry if this isn’t useful!)
Then put the icing onto the bun, make sure you remember which side you cut the mouth out of and (I bought a pack of maryland choc chip cookies and cut them in half) then place your half cookie into the mouth section.
then put the eyes on (you can also make these while the buns are cooking!) For the eyes i rolled some fondant icing into circles and used a black cake pen to create the eye hole! once the icing is on and the cookie is in place the eyes on.
Then start on the next cupcake….it works best doing the combination all at once rather than all the mouths then all eyes because the icing hasn’t set on the bun when you do do them individually therefore everything sticks better!
Wake up at 7
Work at 8
Finish around 4.30
Gym..45 mins mega sessions, making 500 cals per time now!
Tv normally greys anatomy or hart of dixie atm!
I want to go back to school, things were so much easier and my days never seemed so long.
I always wanted full time work after uni, now i’m there i’d happily go back!
