Back to work for me today after my exceptionally long weekend so crazy manic blogging should slowly die down. Actually terrified to drive to work today in the icy ice. Only working 6 hours today but I really don't want to go in. I hope its quiet. Hopefully I may find out about getting my time off as well for my early spring/late winter makeshift holiday PLEASE let me have three weeks off. Please. 

Possibly won't blog again now until Thursday, unless it's just pictures,  as I am having a lovely day out with the BF tomorrow and he's finally taking me to see Harry Potter. You cannot measure my excitement. I really hope I don't have another freak out and ruin a nice day. 

See below for beautiful documentation of finished non-disaster authentic macarons :) 

Serious anticipation!

My actually finished product. ^^ I ACTUALLY made those !!

First Snow and Documented Evidence of Second Attempt Raspberry Macarons

Today we witnessed the first snow of this winter here. We are miles behind possibly every other place in the country and it may have only snowed for about 15 minutes but I am extremely proud of our light dusting. How long it will be before I am complaining about the weather is still undetermined. 

Also, as yesterdays attempt to become Master of the French Macaron fell, sadly, flat on its face I decided to scrap what I had and start again. They aren't finished yet however I am hoping these will turn out MUCH better. 

My beautiful mixture before I added the almond :(

Complete and utter mess after using possibly every bowl in the house.

Day 03

Day 3 of being off work and boredom is beginning to thoroughly set in. My plans today include making authentic French macarons and generally doing nothing. 

It is something like -7〬C ❄ outside and today is the day my heating decides to break leaving me with not only no heating but also no hot water. It is extremely depressing. However on the brightside, this may finally give my dad incentive to actually fix the boiler so I may finally get regular hot showers. :)

I have just had the sudden realisation that creating a blog must have been the worst idea of my life. I cannot write. I have never been able to write. I like the idea of writing however, past a few paragraphs I get bored. 

I had a terrrrible episode this morning. There is something not right with me and it's fairly terrifying. I have changed and not in a good way. I am irritable all of the time and have started with incredible mood swings of anger and sadness. On top of that I have panic attacks at incidents there is no rational reason to panic and I have begun sleeping in the day as well as my already 8 hours sleep. I am driving my family and boyfriend crazy and my boyfriend especially is begging me to see someone. But I have a terrible fear I may have just become a drama queen?

This morning for example I had a panic attack because my boyfriend wanted 5 minutes to himself to walk to work. The thought of him not answering his phone to me and going to work made me psychically panic. The episodes are getting more frequent and as you may expect more likely to occur during an argument and I am worried he will begin to think I am faking to get sympathy. But again, I have the fear this is true and I am subconsciously causing this myself.

My week that began so lovely and optimistic is slipping away. I have also had my first rejection from university and have a nagging feeling this has just started the ball rolling for another string of rejection before interview. Medical school is slowly becoming a dream I'm giving up on :( 

Need a new life plan ASAP x

I Want Somebody To Love Me

Lazy Morning. Off work for 4 days now and have nothing to do.
More Christmas shopping this afternoon and probably a morning of getting dressed and cleaning my car.
Possibly going out tonight for drinks with my friends but don't particularly feel like it. How many vodka lemonade can I buy with £30? Plus return journey taxi share as well of course.

Yeah, You Could Have Moved Me To Tears
