Today has been a pretty good day. Not only has it consisted of fab company and lots of food, but also a whole bunch of laughs (the best cure for anxiety in my opinion). I invited one of my best friends Evie over and we planned to make ourselves pizza for lunch and some sort of sweet treat for after. Truth be told, I was so hungry I didn’t manage to get a photo of the home-made pizza (*cough GREEDY cough*) so you’ll just have to trust me when I say it was delicious! I chose to finish mine with the classic margarita topping- and yes, I was always that boring kid who refused to try exotic pizza flavours over my traditional and safe tomato and cheese topping- whereas Evie was a little more adventurous; adorning hers with sweetcorn and mushroom slices.

As soon as we’d wolfed down our pizzas (I just realised how gross the word “wolfed” sounds, kind of makes me feel a bit uncomfortable…) we took a 10 minute break before delving into the experience that was baking our luscious lemon cupcakes.
Since doing my exams, I’ve sort of fallen out of love with everything I had once had a passion for. Baking became a chore, as did writing and reading and going out became almost impossible. Now my exams are over, I often find myself lacking motivation to do anything; which sounds terrible but I think it’s a natural response to being incredibly over-worked and stressed (at least I hope so… I don’t want to feel this way forever!). However, todays baking escapades have begun to re-light my cooking-flame which, to be honest, I am quite thankful for.

After Evie had left, I realised just how huge the cutlery mountains were and got to washing up straight away. I am being 100% honest when I tell you it took me about an hour to finish cleaning everything. I am now exhausted. I hope you guys like these longer posts… Let me know and be sure to follow me on BlogLovin or via Google if you enjoy reading.
