Sum Up Sunday #28

Sunday, 1 November 2015


This week has been yet another busy one in my schedule. On Monday it was my Nan's birthday, and I was commissioned to make her birthday cake, and it was no easy task! Mum told me that she likes lemon drizzle cake, and seeing as I had some left over lemon curd from the eclairs I made a few weeks ago, I decided to go with that. I ended up making three cakes in total, because the second one ended up as soup... Tim's parent's oven is super old, and as such its not the most reliable. Thankfully the third cake turned out fine, and I managed to cover the cake with fondant and get it pretty smooth, which considering it was only my second time, I was really pleased with. All in all I was very happy with the final result and everyone at the meal was very impressed with it, I'm always glad to receive good feedback!

Then on Wednesday Tim and I finally got around to going to Thorpe Park Fright Night, something which is very important to us, as because the day we got together we went to fright night. This year was even better, we actually went a little bit later in the day so that we could experience some of the rides at night, something I had never done before. I was honestly surprised at how different the rides feel in the dark. Then of course there were the horror mazes, having seen that the queues were 2 hours for each we decided to pick the three that we most wanted to do, and buy fast track passes. This proved to be one of the best decisions that we could have made, as we ended up not queuing at all! Honestly I have to admit that the horror mazes weren't all that scary this year, except Big Top, there's just something about clowns that are super scary. To top off an amazing day we decided to buy yearly passes, all we had to do was pay an additional £20 on top of our ticket prices for the day, and we can go as many times as we like for the year. I'm honestly already planning our next visit...

Finally yesterday to celebrate Halloween, Tim and I decided to have a horror film marathon. I was working until 7pm, but as soon as I got home I made some yummy treats for us to have during the films. Including rice krispie treats, chocolate covered apple slices, and chocolate covered strawberries. All of which were absolutely delicious! We settled on watching the Scream Trilogy which has been sitting in my DVD collection unwatched for a long time. Of course I had seen the first Scream plenty of times, almost to the point of being able to quote it. However I had never seen the 2nd or 3rd movie, so it was nice to watch something new, but at the same time familiar.

Now for my weigh in results:

Start Weight: 16st 6Ibs
Target Weight: 11st
Weight this Week: 16st 0.8Ibs
Weight loss this Week: 0 Ibs
Total Weight Loss: -5.2Ibs
Weight Left to Lose: 5st 0.8Ibs

Unfortunately I didn't lose any weight this week, but considering I had a couple of nights out, and a movie night, I am impressed that I didn't put any weight on!

Currently I'm:
Reading: The Scorch Trials by James Dashner (still...)
Listening To: Fall Out Boy - Irresistible 
Playing: Costume Quest 2
Feeling: Tired of Winter already
Looking Forward To: A couple of relaxing days away from work
