Labyrinth Inspired Cupcakes

November 13th, 2011 — 6:00pm

This weekend we held the first ever Butt-Numb-A-Thon. 24 hours of non-stop films. 5 of us chose 2 films each and we had to prepare food to match up to our film.

One of my films was the Labyrinth. An absolute classic 80s childhood film. I wasn’t really sure on what food to prepare but had a sudden brain wave.

I re-create one of my favourite characters from the film

Labyrinth Worm Cupcakes

I made 6 little worm guys in total and they took me FOREVER to do, but I was really glad I spent the time and effort because the response from everyone was really good!

He’s such a cute little character – love him!

And just in case you’re interested we managed to watch 13 films in 24 hours. Starting with

  1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
  2. Labyrinth
  3. American Movie: The Making of Northwestern
  4. Garden State
  5. Paper Moon
  6. Dark Night of the Scarecrow
  7. Mutiny on the Buses
  8. Bullitt
  9. Little Giants
  10. Black Narcissus
  11. Grizzly
  12. The Great Outdoors
  13. The Dark Knight

Quite an eclectic mix, and some were hard to watch at 4am in the morning, but we all managed to survive the full 24 hours and at this point I haven’t been to bed in over 33 hours!

All good fun and I’m sure we’ll do it again next year!

It was lunch time at college.  As I sat chatting with a friend a boy she knew from one of her classes came over and asked if he could sit with us whilst he “waited for Geoff”

As the common room filled we got talking, one by one more of his friends came in and with each one I’d ask “Is that Geoff?”  I think I was actually hoping Geoff wouldn’t come so he would sit with me a little longer.

As it happens from that moment on we actually became really good friends, spending any spare minute we had together.  I would always look forward to Thursday’s.  We both finished college early so would meet up and walk slowly into town always stopping at Starbucks.  He’d order a cappuccino and I’d have a hot chocolate.  It was there about a year after we first met that Has asked me to be he’s girlfriend.

10 years ago today.

1 Year On

November 5th, 2011 — 8:00am

We spent our wedding day in a bubble of laughter, love and romance.  A day where our feet barely touched the floor, and the smiles never left our faces.
A year on and we’ll be going back to Nailcote Hall to relive one of the most fun days of our lives.
I still can’t believe how lucky I am to have found someone so wonderful, who picks me up when I’m down, always knows how to make me smile and loves me unconditionally.
Happy 1st Anniversary Has.

This has to be one of my favourite pictures of the wedding.  It captures so much about how I was feeling.  In that moment everything else was a blur and all that mattered was us.
