Yummy!

Standard

Today is the first day of my week off. It has been a lovely one.

Domesticity, laundry, bakery, filmery!

I got some laundry on first thing and changed the bedding. There’s nothing like fresh sheets.

I, once again, had some over-ripe bananas and you know what that means! Cake. Tasty cake. Mmm, cake. I tried to find a recipe that I wanted to try but couldn’t, so I decided to let Google image search be my friend. I found a photo of a cake that looked delicious (thank goodness computer screens are lickable is all I can say) and decided to try the recipe. This is the recipe I tried: http://happyhomebaking.blogspot.co.uk/2010/07/afternoon-tea.html

Banana and walnut cake. It is scrumptious. I’m not sure why my cake is so much darker on top – maybe I need to have it lower in the oven or something. (Any baker aficionados have any thoughts on this?) I said it on Facebook and I will say it again here: I still maintain that the best thing about being a (currently) childless adult is that you get the spoon and bowl all to yourself after baking.

 

I was worried that there was too much cake mix but I needn’t have.

Then, of course, the all important taste test. Cue one cup of coffee and a big slice of cake.

The cake is light, moist and tasty. Fab recipe, easy to follow. Highly recommended!

This afternoon, I watched ‘Psycho’ for the first time. We started watching it last night but there was something else on so I went off and bought the DVD this afternoon. It is utterly spectacular. Awesomely creepy, atmospheric and incredible. It as instantly entered into joint first place of my favourite movies of all time – next to the 1922 film ‘Nosferatu.’

Tomorrow, I’m not sure what I will be up to. I might tackle those housework bits that seems to get forgotten – cleaning skirting boards, doors etc. May as well! Off to the cinema tomorrow evening to see ‘Ted.’ Should be fun!

I like Sundays.

Standard

It’s my favourite day off.

I used to work every Sunday and have most Saturdays off but these days I work every Saturday and have Sundays off. I don’t know why but I just prefer it that way. There’s something quintessentially relaxing and lovely about Sundays. I love making big fat roast dinners on Sundays. It just has to be done. Well, mostly. Today I am making spag bol and watching cheesy films with a friend so it isn’t a usual Sunday, but still good!

I got some blogging done this morning over at Make Uppa Your Face which now constitutes three blogs and a Facebook page! the content is all the same but I’m trying to reach as many people as possible. Maybe a little bit of overkill but hey! It’s ok!

I was going to do all the housework today but, nah. Laundry and dishes. I will do the rest in the week. I just felt like having a day of relaxing and doing things for me. It’s nice!

Have a great day!
