I get quite a good response when I do these posts... a lot of you like reading them and I love reading other people's so it makes sense to do them really :)
I got round to making some brownies at long last. They're my ultimate guilty pleasure and I absolutely adore them - but I'd never made them! They were pretty delicious and chewy, but they weren't exactly how I wanted them to come out. I might tweak the recipe then come back and share it with you (if it's successful). I'm a right little housewife in the making ;)
The sun had been shining, and it's been awesome. What do I instantly think when the sun comes out? A big glass of Bulmers/Magners/Brothers over ice. I'm loving Bulmers Pear cider, it's so yum! Trying to make the most of this sun, because it might not carry on!
Today was the Brighton marathon and Dean's cousin (Emma) was running it, a whopping 26 miles in 5 hours and 30 minutes. Well done Emma! We went along to give some support, beautiful weather for the spectators - not so much the runners. Massive admiration for everyone who runs the marathon. Especially the firemen that run in their uniforms! I know I could never do it!
On Thursday, I took part in a sponsored walk from my 6th form, to Brighton Pier and back. It was about a 10 mile walk, but all for a good cause! We walked for The Teenage Cancer Trust - a friend at college was diagnosed with cancer at the start of the year which was devastating, so all of us are trying to do our bit and help out as much as possible. Just from collecting buckets alone on our walk we raised around £150 (there were only about 23 students). After the Easter holiday we'll see how much we raised a long with all the sponsors. I took this image from Google because I forgot my camera :(
I think I've mentioned it before (in fact, I'm sure I have) that my boyfriend is a florist... when we first got together I would get flowers almost weekly. 2 and a half years on, flowers aren't all that regular ;) and of course I let him know! Haha. These gerbera's are my favourite, so he got me a a gerbera plant that will last a lot longer, I love it <3
Obviously it was the Grand National on Saturday, and I've always made a bet on a horse. I'm the sort of person that chooses purely on name, I never look at the odds or form. I chose Santa's Son... because of my child like love for Christmas! Obviously not that great of a horse with 200-1 odds, haha! Nevertheless I still bet on him, the place we made our bet he was 100-1 and I made a £2 bet. Amazingly, Santa's Son was in the lead until the last 5 fences!!!! Then it all went downhill lol, I was gutted... Had he have raced forwards I would've been £204 better off! Ah well. I can't help but feel a little uncomfortable about the Grand Nation every year :/
Did any of you guys win any money? What were your highlights of the week?
