Been a Long Time!
How are we all?
I've been meaning to do a post for a while now, but I've just been so busy with everything that I simply forgot - I'm terribly sorry! But it's not just you guys so don't worry, I've still got a couple of book reviews to do from a couple of weeks ago and I still need to update the main Sprinkle, Sparkle & Magic blog.
Anyway, the reason I've been busy is due to many reasons. For one I recently got a new job, working in House of Fraser's Cafe, only started last week but I had a goof shift, everyone was nice and friendly so I'm hoping it will be okay. Only doing 10 hrs at the moment until I "settle" in there and then I will be moving up to 20 hrs (Whilst I'm at college) and more, so all is good!
Speaking of college, I recently passed my Level 1 Cake dec with flying colours which I am so happy about, you just can't understand!! I have also been sorting out Level 2, to which I can now say I have successfully applied onto the course and will be returning back to college on the 8th September! Two days before my birthday, couldn't be better timing if the college tried :D So happy!
In some ways though, I haven't been doing much baking, which I'm starting to get itchy fingers cause I haven't done any for a while. But I'm going to do some soon :) I did make a chocolate cheesecake with Cadbury Twirl's which will be up on the blog soon.
I Don't know if I've mentioned it, but Sam (As some of you may know him from Instagram and Twitter) passed his driving test! Ever so proud of him, he's sorting out his Classic Triumph Toledo at the moment, he's itching to get out and drive those open roads, but insurance is being a bit of a pain in the arse at the moment. Can you believe we got an insurance quote for £22,500!? There's no need for it to be that much, just companies being greedy if you ask me!
But yeah, he passed and he's been sorting his car out today, sanding it down and giving it a good clean and polish - still got some body and engine work to do! I polished my car the other day, know it's not very exciting but it was so shiny, I was proud!
So whilst Sam has been sorting the above car out, which is now more the blue colour on top and without the stickers, I have been sat in the car (I nearly passed out of the heat! And the vinyl seats, my god thought my skin would stick to it, it was that hot!) I have been crocheting away, making a start on this lovely Christmas blanket, which will be a lovely surprise for someone :)
Lovely little Christmas granny squares! I have this blanket to make and then another two! So I'm a bit of a busy bee at the moment, as well as cakes, the new job and college. So I may lack in existence for a little while but I will be back. Don't worry! I've been having so much fun creating this little blanket so far!
This is what the blanket will be looking like, I know it's a bit eye boggling at the moment but there will be a while border around all the squares and then a big white border around the whole blanket. I don't know how big it's going to be yet, I think I'll just keep making them until I get the desired size. But loving every minute of making them, becoming a bit obsessed if I'm honest! If you haven't guessed, if I'm not baking or reading I will be crocheting and sometimes I may be playing the drums!
I've had this lovely man to listen to whilst I've been writing up this blog post, but I'm going to disappear for a while and get some fairy buns made up, as we're a bit peckish ;)
See you soon everyone!
