How I’m an Awful Cook

Leave a comment

I Fail. Two days ago I promised to cook for my fiancée. I was planning to make a pasta salad, plus some chicken burgers in a bun.

I put way too much pasta in and the pan was not deep enough to hold an adequate amount of water to cook the pasta in. As all women do she got inpatient took control of the mess and ended up just having pasta salad. However by the time it was cooked we were no longer hungry.

Though this is by no means the worst event to happen with me at the helm. I have burnt eggs, undercooked chips and chicken and put a metal container in a microwave. Luckily Amy spotted it before it had a chance to set fire.

Top tip of the day, don’t leave me in the kitchen for too long.

The Stag

A very interesting post about my stag do…

…it’s non-existent at the current time. It was only a few days ago I named the best man. Now it’s time to look forward to the stag do.

Well we ruled out clubbing/drinks as neither of us really do that sort of thing. So we have decided on an action packed day, so far decided:

  • Paintball
  • go-karting
  • sphering
  • skydiving

All of them are plausible, except skydiving which will be mega expensive.

I’ve only done go-karting which killed my back, arms and legs. But this is coming from someone who doesn’t hold a licence. But I thoroughly enjoyed the speed and beating the future brother-in-law.

The other two I’m not too sure about. Paint balling can be painful, but I don’t plan on being seen. And sphering? Well I know I have a tendency to be sick, after spinning to much.

So readers any ideas which one? Or any more ideas?

Today has been almost unbelievable hot. To the point of having to find shade everywhere we went.

Amy, Amelia and me had quite a fun day seeing our friends and a cheeky trip to pizza hut. Most important is we now have a best man! Congratulations Ashley.

The day is set as July 13th 2013, we’ve got the venue, reception, rings, best man and Maid of Honour. Just need to get the bride’s dress and my suit. Amy already knows what dress she wants. I just need to find my suit any ideas?

Now to sit back and enjoy the cooling evening.

Fun, Fun and Less Fun

Another day at the office, just been told my talents are being wasted here…what a compliment.

I suppose if I was brave enough I would venture back in to coding and programming. The only problem is I’ve met a couple of these coders and they really don’t understand/listen to the customer.

I’d rather remain in the company providing tech support, however the IT department has been reduced and outsourced to an outside company. As I know the ins and outs of what they need.

Like today printer stopped working, manager couldn’t see why, a few button presses later click, click, click it started running again.

Maybe I should start studying….

We love what we love. Reason does not enter into it. In many ways, unwise love is the truest love. Anyone can love a thing because. That’s as easy as putting a penny in your pocket. But to love something despite. To know the flaws and love them too. That is rare and pure and perfect.

Hello :),

Has been a very very long time. I had forgotten this even existed.

So a lot of awesome stuff has happened, since the last post.

Another change is I am now a dad…such a brilliant thing to be. Get to see her grow and learn is such a magical thing. Had to learn nappy changing, dressing etc, think I’m doing okay, ask my beautiful partner Amy for the truth. Anyway best be off need my beauty sleep.

Signing off….Brendan
