27. The Shop in Blossom Street - Debbie Macomber...I actually really enjoyed this book, it was a nice light read, but kept my attention.

28. The Almost Moon - Alice Sebold...I actually didn't like this book at all, I loved both The Lovely Bones and Lucky but this I didn't like at all, I just couldn't get on with it.

29. Isabel's Daughter - Judi Hendricks...This one I found really interesting as well, I have always wanted to spend time in the Southern USA, and this made me want to go even more. I loved the story which was full of twists and turns, although the ending was little disappointing.

30. Eat, Pray, Love - Elizabeth Gilbert ...This I was expecting to hate, but it was a recommendation so I thought I would try it out and actually it was a really good book. The first part was terrible, supposedly about decadence, and eating too much in Italy, but it really didn't work and there was almost no mention of food! The second two parts were much better, much more interesting, uplifting and inspiring and in the end a feel good book.

31. Crescent - Diana Abu-Jaber...Loved this book, it was a completely different look at L.A.

32. The Iron Council - China Mieville
33. Eat Cake - Jeanne Ray
34. Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles: A Giant Problem - Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black

I have been making some yummy meals over the last few days! I also have some new white plates which I really love, the square one is my favourite!Its really pretty!

I don't like the layout of this one so much. This one is Soy Marinaded Tuna with Wasabi Mash, and Courgettes Stir Fried with Oyster Sauce and garlic and ginger



This was really tasty, Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken wrapped in Parma Ham, with Lemon Sauteed Potatoes, and Broccoli and Green beans.

So I came across this in spotlight like most other people but I've been photographing the food i make for ages. I am really passionate about food and I have also started my own blog Lemon and Cheese, where I write down recipes and post photos and food I've been cooking.

Firstly, these are Lemon Muffins that i baked when I was at my Parents house. They also caused my sister to miss her stop on the tube, and get very jealous looks from other people!




 

More food!Collapse )

Apparently I am now no longer able to make my own decisions.
Someone asked me to swap a counter slot with them yesterday 11-1, its my late night tonight so I wouldnt usually start till 11.30, so I said yes that was fine and turned up half an hour early for work this morning, (i can take an hour lunch break if i do this rather than 1/2 an hour), to find that my manager has changed this because apparently it wasnt fair on me asking me to do this slot, yet noone told me this or consulted me on changing it back, so I am now half an hour early for work and I am going to sit here till 11.30 and do nothing and then take an hour lunch. just grrr i can make my own decisions! and i do know what i'm doing!

Ok so someone nudged me!

If anyone would like to give me somewhere to sleep for a week i'd be very happy...in London preferably!
Its so hard finding somewhere that doesnt disappear in seconds...and I can only get to London at the weekends and then they're all gone, cos they view in the evenings and everyone is trying to find somewhere to live!! its so frustrating!
Bah...only 2 weeks till I move...eeeeek

12. Reef - Romesh Gunesekera...I really loved this book, its been on my list for a very long time and i've never got around to reading it but I am so glad I did. It is set in Sri Lanka and you could really get the feel of the heat and the sand and the feeling of being there. The story was magical, and the naivity of the young boy at the beginning and his transformation into a grown man was wonderful and there is a superb passage about a fish market which i'll have to copy out into somewhere!

I seem to have gone a bit library mad, i've joined Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire libraries as well as working in the one in Peterborough which is separate from both, the lovelyness of living on the border of about 4 counties! i get all the counties books at my fingertips!!now all i have to do is remember to take the right books back to the right library!!

I also got two books from cambridgeshire today cos i'm staying at my boyfriends... so do i fancy travelling to italy with annie hawes and or travel to India with in her autobiography!

any suggestions, ideas?

also clara! you have to read Notes on a Scandal as well as this its brilliant!!

9. The Bonesetter's Daughter - Amy Tan...This was really good, part chick lit, part historical fiction, it was really thought provoking and interesting to read, it held my attention right until the end. The worry and descriptions of the onset of alzeheimers were worrying and you could really feel yourself in Ruth's shoes.
