The Weekend Blog
1st November 2014
Today is the first 1st of November. Anyone else wondering where October went? It just flew by.
Last Sunday my parents were over in Liverpool with some of their friends. They’d all been to see The Full Monty at the Empire the night before and were looking for some way to spend their Sunday in Liverpool. I played tour guide and dragged them all on the train to New Brighton.
I took my camera too and managed to capture this photograph, which I am ridiculously proud of. It’s interesting to compare my pictures from last weekend to my picture of New Brighton in the summer.
On Monday my friend Becky came over to visit me. We went shopping, had lunch at the lovely Leaf tearooms and went on a tour of the St John’s Beacon, but I’ve got a special blog post about that day coming this week.
The rest of my week, as usual, has been occupied with university related things. Tyrone is at home this weekend so I’m spending my Saturday and Sunday catching up with assignments and lecture notes. Yep, even more uni work.
Tyrone celebrated his 21st birthday on Tuesday. You might have seen the photo of the birthday cake that I made for him on Instagram. I was going to share my recipe here, but I forgot to take a decent picture of it before we got stuck in to eating it. Looks like I’ll have to make it all over again. What a shame.
Just a heads up fellow bloggers: a website called ‘Shelterness’ is stealing blogger’s DIY tutorials. They don’t ask to use your content but use the exact same title as your post, meaning there is a good chance if someone Google’s it they will be directed to this website rather than your own blog. They do link back to your blog but only after they’ve reworded your tutorial. They are also impossible to get in touch with. They don’t respond to any emails asking to remove content. So many bloggers have complained, and it doesn’t look like a new issue. I’d avoid them at all costs!
