Interesting things that have happened since the last time I showed up:

My Alpacas arrived. After having to pay an extra £15 import tax THANKS customs, thustoms.

I then bought two more and an adorable tea for two bunny teapot from the ideal home show. (its been on my pinterest wish list for aaaaages)

I re-bleached my hair (also I cut my hair). The below is my hair before I dyed the underneath.  The ombre in the photo below = bad bleaching.

I’m going to attempt purple shampoo this evening, its a good thing I don’t mind if it accidentally goes purple! I’m going to leave it white blonde for a while then I’ll finish off the rest of my pink dye at christmas! I’m tempted by christmassy turquoise though…

NEW POKEMON ARRIVED! I’ve had it a week and I’ve still not opened it :S I think its because I’ve not finished Y yet, I still only have one gym badge but I’ve played at least 20-30 hours! also I’ve replaced froakie as the lead of my team with fletchling. Hes so much cuter.

I have learnt a lot about the inner workings of wordpress over the past few months. I now completely understand why non wordpress developers get all high and mighty about it. I still think it has its place but definitely not for the project I’ve been on recently. If anyone knows how to scale massive WP websites please tell me your secrets.

So on friday I decided “I need cheering up, I hear alpacas cure ailments” so I bought three alpakasso!

The only flaw in that plan is that all though my illness continues my alpacas probably wont arrive for another three weeks as they’re being shipped from Japan. On the bright side I’ll probably have something else wrong with me by then.

I’ve wanted a bigger Alpakasso for ages – they’re normally £30 for one though but I decided I’ll just go for it. I managed to get free shipping by ordering through a link on one of Mimei’s videos, check the description. The site I ordered through is called OtakuMode. I’ve never ordered from there before. The googling I did before I paid seemed legit. I don’t like the timer on the cart though and if your like me and open everything in new tabs then you’re cart session will time out and you’ll lose all your items! So browse like its 1995!

PS. please ignore the 8 month hiatus….

I can’t believe I never wrote about the Ideal home show. I’d always wanted to go so I forced the manfriend to go with me. I told him there would be free food, which there was, so that kept him happy!

Giant lampshades – check!

There were various show homes you could queue up to walk round and presentations at various times throughout the day, I can’t stand still for that long though so we wandered around all the stalls trying all the samples and watching the demonstrations instead.

The manfriend, always pleased to be looking at gardens, and candles, and paint… This section was small gardens created by schools, you had to vote for your favourite. Suddenly my garden didn’t seem so pretty!

Me in my element! Next to me is a  giraffe twice my height but we didn’t drive so I couldn’t have him :(

manfriend, not so much in his element!

When I spent those months researching my vitamix I only watched the US demonstrations so it was nice to see a UK one. I snagged a copy of the show recipe book too along with a shiny new dry container for making my own gluten free flours! So far I’ve only used it to grind coffee beans though.

We spent waaay to long deciding which of these to buy, we went for the tropical flavour in the end, which goes so well in orange or apple juice. Perfect for summer cocktails. The ironic thing is neither of us are big drinkers. The best part was when I got home I noticed that they were based just down the road! So I can slowly work my way through the whole lot!

Man friend wasn’t much interested until we reached this part, I introduced him to olive oil and balsamic vinegar a few years ago, since then he’s been obsessed. Manfriend didn’t consider a stir fry to be a meal until last year. We bought a fair amount of this stuff, it is amazing! You can order it from Greek Olive Oil Direct.

 

I also bought some magic knives, if you hate cutting up butternut squash and massive caulis these are the knives for you. Super sharp with a lifetime guarantee!
