I've been in the kitchen making...

...Peppermint bark !

I loved the peppermint bark that Debi made while I was over in America living with them. 
So when I saw some peppermint candy canes while at the supermarket for just a £1, I just HAD to get them and make peppermint bark ! They came out well and are really yummy !!! Thanks for the recipe Debi !

me and my dew

Its not a very good pic as I used my webcam but I am buzzing as i had a can of mountain dew tonight !!!!! A friend ordered me one from a website :-D  For those of you that don't know you can't buy mountain dew here in England :-( Though I do think that I probably wouldn't love it as much as I do if I could drink it every day - absence really does make the heart grow fonder (most of the time) !
I've had a really good two days at college, I really love it even all the assignments I have to write !!! It does take up a lot of my time but i'd take a day at college over a day at work any day. 
I'm rambling here but work is not so great right now and am thinking its maybe time to move on again, my itchy feet are coming into play again.
