LIFE: Now i'm 25 ...

It's odd saying i'm now 25 [as of yesterday] feel like I should be growing up and not living at home, nevertheless it was rather nice actually having a birthday with some sunshine, that's a rarity! I came home to find a HUGE interflora box with these gorgeous flowers from my boy - i'd love to tell you what all the flowers are but my knowledge is limited to merely the pink roses, lilies and orchids. Then there was a second red box filled with the most yummy personalised chocolate cupcakes. All from my boy - i'm a very lucky girl. The rest of the presents are from my folks - including luggage tags, travel adaptors, a Mary Berry cookbook [since I love seeing her in the Great British Bake Off] chocolate and hair stuff. I got some money too, just need to work out which camera I want to put it towards - it's a hard decision!

I thought it was about time to mention that I finally jumped into the bandwagon and got a Twitter. Half of it's due to forthcoming changes with this blog and half starting to hate all the changes on facebook and how suddenly hard it is to navigate around. There's something more fun about twitter when it comes to posting my random rambles. If you fancy following along then please do!

  1. Oooo do post a review of the cookbook! I actually own no baking cookbooks, may need to add one to the Birthday/Christmas wish list

  2. Those cupcakes are so yummy - possbly because the chocolate icing is so thick and it's just nomnom!!

    I think i'll definitely do you a run down about the cook book - there's so much stuff in there to make and i'm not sure where to start! I love Mary Berry's recipes because they are always so clear and easy to follow, plus they always tend to use indigents that you should have in your kitchen anyway.
