You may not know it, but I'm quite the procrastinator and my beloved partner in crime is always without fail... StumbleUpon.

StumbleUpon is a website where you register and tick your interests and it selects webpages it thinks you might like. You then "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" the web page it's selected and over time it gradually learns your preferences and what you like and don't like. I LOVE it.

You have been warned... beware the addictive StumbleUpon

It's so nice to sort out clutter sometimes.

At the weekend I bought a £3 jewellery sorter, it's so good, it's double sided pockets and it's on a coat hanger so you can just hook it up. My drawers are clear...

My jewellery is not tangled...

Now if I could only find a similar thing for earrings... one to ponder. Enjoy the sun!

Mother's Day Mania

So it's mothers' day and I decided I'd make a project for my mum.

I grabbed a record I liked for my mum (Ok I didn't like it but my mum did!)

I then melted it into shape over this here bowl (and then inside it for the ruffles)

Et Voila!

And then the finishing touches for decoration for my mum...

The Knitting Vandals Strike Back

The other day on my morning walk to work I saw that someone had made a knitted tube and attached it to a drain pipe and also another further down attached to a place to chain up bikes.

I didn't think anything of it apart from that some elderly folk might be getting bored and wanted to walk on the wild side.... with knitting?

Until I saw (on my most hated breakfast TV show) that knitting vandals are striking across the country. Bit of a waste of time but whatever... at least Norwich has none of this just yet...

Chocolate Philadelphia? Surely Not!

What's that you ask? Chocolate Philadelphia? Hell yeah.

The boyfriend and I decided to treat ourselves to some at the weekend in our grocery shop

We got strawberries and brioche

And here's how it ended...

It was sooo good... how's lent going you ask? Err...

Confessions of a Would-Be Prepper

Ever see those movies where a contagious disease kills loads of people (don't scoff, think of the plague!) and people start looting and fighting for food? Or zombies? Or religious apocalpse? Nuclear war? Inflation gone mad? No more food??? Need I go on? Ok well anyway, everytime I see any sort of plot line that is remotely plausible (...maybe not the zombie ones) it makes me think about those survivalist preppers.

You know.. the ones that keep a years supply of food, amunition, live off the grid with a generator...?

And it turns out that you can actually buy a years supply of food in the UK now (paranoia has spread!) so I was checking it out here and worked out that if we just bought this we'd majorly save on our grocery bills by a few grand so it's win win!! Do I want reconstituted salmon or scrambled egg? Why yes, yes I do.

Despite that, the boyfriend still says I'm not allowed to get any OR store it in our garage. Sad times, what I really need is a bunker basement. In fact the boyfriend think's I'm quite mad but, who's going to want to share my dried macaroni cheese when the shh hits the fan? He is. All I'm saying is, it's no coincidence that Bear Grylls lives on a house boat and a private island... he knows whats coming. Bet he has chickens as well.

Where's Wally App

It has the main game which is finding different people but it also has mini games

So Tempted...

Over Christmas when looking at stocking fillers the boyfriend and I saw in a toy shop that you could buy a little fish in a box, you just put the egg in water and et voila! A fishy.

They come in six different colours and they only live about 3 months so if you don't want to sign up to cleaning a fish tank for the next 3 years or finding a fish sitter for holidays then it's perfect. A lot of mixed reviews of some of the fish not hatching but if they don't hatch you can take them back and exchange them. I'm very tempted... maybe after May holiday?

Are You Feeling Morbid?

You are? Oh good, then allow me to recommend a blog to you all:

It's a blog that records what the people on Death Row order for their last meals and it's actually strangely interesting! It got me thinking what I would order if I had to choose a last meal. Here's my menu:

Bucks Fizz
Pepperoni Pizza with sweetcorn and pineapple
A dairy milk bar
Reese's peanut butter cups

What would you pick?
