After a week of working 4 x 5pm - midnight shifts doing stocktake - which was an experience LOL
and then finding out that some so called "friends" have been sitting around gossiping about my life and what I apparently have .... which has left me wondering "Why???"
I figure if I must be their topic of conversation, they have very boring and sad miserable lives and that mine is more interseting and that some must be very jealous of me having to work all the hours I do to get what I have. So this week I have been very down in the dumps and now have no idea who my "friends" are - but I do have an idea "who" these gossiping ladies are....
and for those that dont know - YES I am seperared from Jon ......
last night Madeline went with Jon for the night and Sebastian and I had a night together ...it was his choice what he was doing - I did get from Madeline that they were going to hire the movie - "hating Allison Ashely " - so Jon is in for a good night like me LOL
We played Animal Crossing on the DS, then Mario Cart. We then moved onto the Wii for Mario Cart - how can I come last when there are only 2 of us playing all the time ?? haha
Then onto dvd's - the 1949 cinema classic - Batman & Robin .... OMG ... even Seb was laughing at all the mistakes .... they made episodes for the cinema back then and you had to go every week to see the "next exciting new episode" ... we watched 5 ....
we then decided - well more Seb that we would watch Tom & Jerry in bed ...now that was funny, I havent really sat and watched them in years - and watching them now - how violent it can be ... finally lights out at 10pm...
This morning we got up and he helped me make breakfast and then we both have just made whit choc raspberry muffins for school lunches - if you want the recipe, well get ready....
go to a Coles supermarket, go to the pkt cake isle and get yourself a pkt of Coles - white choc raspberry muffin mix - they are really yum.. thats the recipe LOL
well off to get ready for Sebs soccer this morning and to work this afternoon...
This was meant to be one cake, but I decided to double it and make cupcakes for my mums birthday cake.
the ganache did not work out ..... I whisked it till my arm hurt, it wasnt getting thick... then got out the beaters..nothing, so then added more cream...getting to how thick I want it...BLINKED - and it curdled !! looked like cottage cheese ... tasted ok, but the look wasnt the best LOL
so ended up whipping cream and folding a voilet crumble thru it, then adding more crushed voilet crumble on top..
Also I brought the pretty cupcake cases, and I am a little disappointed in them...you can see the moisture of the cake thru them and they hve lost their "prettiness" ... oh well think they will get eaten anyway..
With Kristeens generosity she opened her house/farm to us for the weekend.
It was fantastic, we got to see and feed all her animals - which was a treat when you live in surburbia.
We ate, chatted, ate, stitched, ate, had a few drinks, stitched, ate more ...
On the Saturday we had some day visitors and did the above again...
Sunday was time to go home..
I think we might have eaten way too much, laughed heaps, got to know each other so much better and put names to faces, and had a ball..
It was such a great way to spend a weekend with now very close and caring friends.
