Phew, what a week!
My Uni work load is getting ridiculous. I’m pretty much sleeping, eating and working at the moment 🙁
I spent nine house researching and writing the other day. Nine hours! I had blisters on my hand and serious cramp! Not fun at all, but unfortunately I only learn things when I write them down, there’s no point reading or typing stuff as it just doesn’t go in!
I wish I had a photographic memory, it would be so much easier!
The thing is, in one module we still don’t actually know what we’re doing entirely, the design brief isn’t even finished and we’re about to go into week 5. Ridiculous. We’ve been told to research, but last term we were told we did too much research and it wasn’t focused enough, so I have no idea, I’m just trying to research something as if I sit there doing nothing I panic because I know I should be doing something, even though I’m just confused. Everyone is, so it’s not me being dumb!
Ah well, I’m just going to do as much as I can every day and try and get some baking time at the weekends!
Speaking of baking, I made these last weekend. I got the new Hummingbird Bakery book last week and I couldn’t wait to get started making things from it! What I love about their books is that you always find something new! You all know I’m addicted to cookbooks and I love reading them, I know it means I probably have about 100 vanilla cupcake recipes, but I like to make different ones and choose my favourite, but it’s also so great when you don’t just get the same type of recipes in a book!
Once I saw these cupcakes I knew I had to make them right away. I am addicted to strawberry milkshake, I never get chocolate or banana, it’s always strawberry. This recipe actually has milkshake powder in it!! The frosting actually tastes like you’re drinking a strawberry milkshake, I’m surprised any ended up on the cupcakes…
