How To: Make An Impressive Brownie


^ Just look it that goodness. {It oozes yummyness}

Right. You'll need;


~ 115 grams of butter
~ 1 cup of white sugar
~ A 1/4 of a cup of cocoa
~ About 1/2 a tsp vanilla essence
~ 2 eggs
~ A ¾ of a cup of flour
~ A ¼ a cup of choc chips
~ A packet of chocolate melts

- In a medium sized saucepan, melt butter over a medium heat
- While the butter is melting, now's your chance to line a brownie tin. Do so, then get out those chocolate melts and line the bottom of the tray with them.
- Mix all ingredients into the butter in order listed above until combined.
- Pour half of the mixture over the melts & sprinkle melts on the mixture, randomly will do. 
- Pour the rest of the mixture over the melts & be sure to cover the melts completely.
- Bake at 180degrees for 20-30 mins or until top starts to crack.

Enjoy this goodness. I think they're the most amazing treat that could ever exist.

Boredom Settling In

I made such a badass brownie the other day. I stole the recipe off a mate a while back. Damn!! I'll post the recipe soon.

I'm glad my sentence is short. I'm starting to get a little bored now.
I've run out of motivation to do much crafty shit. Especially since most of the things I wanna do or finish is stuff that needs thing brought & that's mainly stuff I can't buy online.
Master O has been sick for the past couple of weeks which means there's not been too much excitement.

As my release date draws closer, I'm getting more impatient. I'm still not entirely sure where I wanna go once I'm not trapped but I love the idea of just going for a random day trip to a near by town whenever the heart desires {usually at the drop of a hat}
It'll also be good to not have to rely on Mr. C being chief in charge of doing the grocery shopping - although, he does do an amazing job for a male!

Fuck Not Having The Internet

Loooooooong post today. Sorry peeps.

Since I've started my sentence, it's made me realise just how boring I really am & how little friends I have. Depressing shit. Time is still trickling by. I'm still into my cleaning & I've been doing some crafty stuff here & there. If anyone gives a fuck, here's the links & such to some of the things we've done.

I've also done some cross-stitching for Miss M's room;







No link here as these are ones I made up. Crafty fucker, right?

Oh, & we've had this shitty old bench in our garden. I've since spruced it up a bit by following these directions;

& made our bench a little more decent:




I'm making our bathroom look a little like we're at the beach. Maybe I'll go there once I'm free again.

Even though we're poor, I've been buying bits & bobs online to make our house look a little more badass. Here's a few of my favourite things;





This is very us!

Since it's been a few years since I last got ink, I've been imagining & designing the sleeve I wanna get. I just have to get off my current meds {which happen to be blood thinners - messy shit} & rustle together some dosh. I don't want a sleeve until after I'm married as I just don't think a lot of people can pull off a tattooed wedding without looking trashy & I'm not convinced I'm one of those people. Speaking of which, I've also been imagining my dream wedding as Mr. C has been hinting a bit. Not as much as I'd hope but a girl can dream!
{Also, Pinterest is a time consuming place - just what I'm after}
Mr. C is definitely one of those guys that can pull off being a tattooed groom.
At the moment, there's nothing more I'd like in the world then to marry my best friend.
Hmm.
