rhubarb cupcakes

last night i made rhubarb cupcakes.. yum!

i got the recipe from the blog coconut&lime which has some amazing recipes on it!..

i didn't bother with the frosting and used tinned rhubarb as i couldn't find any fresh but they are very very yummy!!!

tick tock.....

after not much sleep at all last night i now have at least a 22hr working day ahead of me.... (night shoot tonight!)


I am so tired today... typical of course when there is loads to do.. we are shooting all this week but i just want to crawl back into bed!

Perhaps it is because today is "Blue Monday" - Monday, 22 January - officially designated by a psychologist as the most depressing day of the year. It has been singled out by Dr Cliff Arnall, psychologist and former tutor at Cardiff University, who has used mathematical equations to reach his verdict.

also apparently mondays are always worse because "Our bodies work on a 25-hour clock so that - by the time we get to the weekend - we stay up later. That makes it difficult for us to go to sleep on Sunday and we wake up grumpy.' !!!

any excuse!! xx

Rain please tell him that I love him so....

sitting on my sofa cosy with a cup of tea, missing my sweetheart and listening to the rain and trees creaking in the wind. At some point I will gather the motivation to tidy the flat!


the new lego site is awesome!
called lego click

its like a youtube style idea and everyone can upload videos of their own lego exploits! xx

Sunday Movie

on sunday one of the films i watched was Miss Pettigrew lives for a day.... I have loved the book for ages and missed the film in the cinema so was thrilled that i got to finally watch it.

it was wonderful!.. i spent the entire film hugging my knees and grinning at my less than entheusiastic felllow (male!) watchers!

the set is gorgeous...

and the outfits!

many soups

we have been making lots of the soups at the moment.. in an effort to be healthy and have something hot!... last night we made broccoli and chilli.... mmm x

i love that soups are so easy to make and that you can pretty much use anything you have!... i made this one by frying some garlic, onion and two chilli's in a little butter, adding the entire broccoli (stalks and all!) topping with two kettles full of stock and leaving to boil before blending and adding a dollop of greek yoghurt when serving... we have left overs (i always have leftovers!) so tonight i might just mix some rice in. xx

hibernation begins.....

i am going to hibernate for the rest of january.. the horrific realisation that i still have three weeks until i get paid and have spent all this months salary over christmas has sunk in and i am in panic hibernation mode!!... lucky that i had a really great weekend to finish my month's spenditure on!
