when weekends suck

There are some things that I can handle like its nobodies business but being alone is not one of them.  To quote my mother, I have always been a bit of a social butterfly.  I tend to get energy from being around others.  I thrive on being out and about and not cooped up at home with nobody or nothing to see.   I think that is the reason why I am starting to hate weekends.  I know, you are probably asking yourself HOW can anyone hate weekends but its true.  I actually can’t stand them lately.

During the week I get out, I go to work, socialise a bit, walk around during my lunch hour and then get to be around people again for another few hours before heading home to a couple of walls.  Its fine during the week.  I get home, catch up with Shaun, help Jensen with his homework, sort out dinner and then relax for an hour or two before heading off to bed.

One of the products that I received was a shampoo from electric Hairdressing London - their hydrate shampoo and it is absolutely amazing.

This weeks recipe is a baking one.  Something that I had never made before getting to the UK and have since made 3 times.  It’s a Lemon Drizzle Cake.  This specific recipe is a Mary Berry recipe and its freaking fantastic!  If you love lemon sponge and the sweet tang of a bit of lemon glaze poured all over it then this one is for you!
