Food: Cake! Putting a smile on my day!

It was a hard day, it was a useful day but on my gosh it was hard. Three hours chatting to the bank in order to sort out a mortgage that they had already agreed in principle and that we already a) bank with and b) have an existing mortgage with.

As such I decided that cake was in order, specifically Patisserie Valerie cake. We even decided to push the boat out and try their 4 slices of cake for £10 offer. I was very good and, even sharing with the husband, we made the cakes last over two days!

Their Blackforest gateaux was very nice

However the double chocolate was really disappointing and indifferent, which was gutting as I really like chocolate!

Redundant spinning – Not a good combination

I like my spin class, I am probably addicted to it. Which makes the current lack of classes irritating, what is all the more irritating is the reason for the lack of classes.

The person who holds the class is in a potential redundancy situation. I don’t know the gory details but it seems like since this happened they have decided not to get up at silly o’clock in the morning to do their job.

They are a good spin teacher – although seems to suck at everything else, but I am pretty sure that not holding the classes isn’t exactly going to make them look good. Although I very much hope that they don’t get made redundant.

It has also highlighted my crappy lack of motivation when I am not being shouted at.

Nails: Star Wars nails – “Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed.”

Despite ‘Fanboys’ and despite Jar Jar Binks I am very aware that Star Wars has a large following and that my spouse is still enthusiastic about it.

Very enthusiastic given I’ve just placed the order for the Lego Star Wars advent calendar for him and paid extra for next day pre-1pm delivery so that I don’t have to worry about it actually arriving ok!

So with that in mind Storm Trooper nails seem a funky idea

Film: ‘Fanboys’ – “We storm the ranch or we die trying”

It was cheap, it was very very very cheap. I also hadn’t realised that it was going to be so juvenile.

I don’t know why I continued watching it – admittedly behind my hands and with my fingers in my ears!

fanboys

It is probably an interesting idea if you are a Star Wars fan and gosh there are a lot of cameos.

Book: Phillipa Bornikova’s ‘This Case Is Gonna Kill Me’ – “I felt like a small rodent trapped between mastodons”

I bought this book despite the title and because it was very cheap. Linnet Ellery is straight out of law school and her family connections have got her a job at a law firm – a Vampire run law firm. Apparently in this world Vampires are out of the coffin and ruling the world – along with werewolves and some fae to boot. this case is gonna kill me The plot barely matters as the whole book feels thrown together, there is the new girl getting the case that looks boring but has secrets ,a werewolf rampaging in the office block, having sex with the office creep, the scary assassins following the brave Linnet as she tries to unravel the secrets, the random fae bit and a subplot about horses being shoved in with a crowbar. It feels like a beach read, there isn’t enough depth to the characters or the plot to keep it more than mildly interesting and Linnet is really very dumb.

Food: Malteser Teasers bar – Less of a tease, more of a broken promise

I like Maltesers so the idea of Maltesers in a bar sort of sounded fun.

Even the tagline “an ingenious way to stop those cheeky Maltesers from rolling away” sounded fun. However it overlooked one minor detail, the chocolate on Maltesers is rubbish and increasing the ratio of iffy chocolate to the honeycomb bit isn’t actually tasty.

Won’t be bothering with this again!

Learning new stuff is weird – Teaching me that breathing is overrated

I learnt a lot of new stuff recently:

Jelly Beans car air freshners bring on some kind of allergic reaction in me so I can’t breath.

Yoga with chanting makes me laugh so hard I can’t breathe

Cats will eat yoga mats at the first opportunity and then keep trying to do so even when they must have noticed that it isn’t tasty.
