I have to say, when I saw the recipe for scrambled tofu I was more than a little skeptical. But I will try (almost) anything once so I decided to give it a go. Best. Decision. EVER! It looks almost exactly like scrambly egg, and with the ve... Read more

It feels a little like all I've done this week is update my weight. In the last 7 days I've dropped 6lbs, which is pretty impressive considering it took me about 10 months to lose 15. Now before anyone calls an intervention, I am not starvi... Read more

Graffiti is a serious problem in many places. But sometimes (only sometimes) it's actually a blessing. Last night I was walking back from running club, feeling fat and useless because I only managed 10 minutes running before my legs screame... Read more

I don't like the sun.
Thursday, June 06, 2013      6 comments

I've discovered a lot of things about myself during my year on SP, but this is possibly the most unexpected. I do not like sunny weather. Not because I'm emo (the rain reflects the endless well of sadness in my soul...), but because every work... Read more

But it was totally worth it. Tonight I tried my first Thai boxing class and it was AWESOME!! I am totally addicted already. I was a wee bit embarrassed at the start when the trainer made all the 'newbies' put their hands up, but in the e... Read more

I don't have hypothermia, I just had a sudden girly urge and painted them Lego brick blue. It made me happy. Well. May was a complete fail in almost every way. The only good point was taking part in the Race For Life. And then I kind of spo... Read more
