I’m attempting to start making my own bread, so getting in some reading…..I might tackle wraps next ๐Ÿ˜€

Fork or Spoon?

I love bread making there is something therapeutic about kneading dough and watching it rise. Home made wraps are so much more tasty than shop brought and you can add any spice or flavour you like. I added paprika to these wraps with some chilli flakes. Great snack with some humous and almond butter. This will make about 6 wraps.


  • 250g strong white bread flour, with about 100g extra for dusting
  • 1 sachet (5g) fast action dried yeast
  • 5g table salt
  • 15g caster sugar
  • 20g butter at room temperature
  • 150ml water
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  • In a large bowl pour in the flour and add the yeast to one side and the salt and sugar to the other. Using a large metal spoon mix the dry ingredients together. Make a well in the middle and pour in the water and soft butter and use your fingers to mixโ€ฆ

Defining Friendships

I am so blessed to have a small group of dear friends, however as a single girl I am always asked to define or explain these friendships to people, and I am always baffled as to how closed minded people seam to be to particular ideas, I mean we live in a modern society right?

Friend 1

Sex: Male

Length of Friendship: 14 Years

Relationship status: Single

This person I would define as one of my dearest friends, We had almost every class in High-school together, traveled through Europe, seen each other at our best and at our worst. We generally just tell people we are cousins or some form of relation to justify why we hang out so much when ever we are visiting one another, or do we just want to make it less hard for them to understand that we are just best friends…..you know boys and girls can be just friends right????

Friend 2

Sex: Male

Length of Friendship: 10 years

Relationship status: Playa

Friend 2 is a notorious ladies man, so I can see where people get the wrong idea however this person has dated many of my friends due to my “wing man” abilities…..(they aren’t that great) However this friend has provided some of the funniest and most memorable times in my life….And we make “bro night” a regular occasion when ever he is in town home from his fly in fly out job, and I have to say it’s fun just being an absolute clown for a night :P.

Friend 3.5 ๐Ÿ˜›

Sex: Female

Relationship status: Married

Length of friendship: 10 years

Friend 3 is one of the most amazing people ever! (her husband is pretty great too…..apart for his choice in football team?!) I love going and visiting them both, I instantly feel at ease in their house… apart for that one time they (husband) tried to set me up with one of the groomsmen at their wedding….maybe it was 2 or 3 of them, maybe a first come first served basis who knows but i guess when you’re the only single bridesmaid other than the flower girls there isn’t much choice left, Regardless I love how I have been accepted into this family with open arms with no judgment about any of my decisions in life and they would do anything to help anyone, plus friend 3 loves living vicariously through me.

Friend 4 

Sex: Female

Length of friendship: 4.5years

Relationship status: Single

Friend 4 and I are not actually sure how we became friends, but aren’t those the best type of friendships. We are polar opposites of each other shes the “Cool Confidant Heavy Metal Hippy” and I’m the “Shy Quirky Mod Hipster” the best part of our friendship is our completely different taste in men…..well 95% of the time. I think I would run out of fingers if I had to count the times we have been asked if we are a “couple”, maybe we have just been single for that long people are trying to solve our “problem”

I feel like grabbing these people and saying “why do you need an explanation for my friendship? Why do I need to be pigeonholed? Why can’t I have a male best friend, spend my mights out with my other single friends?

My friends are an extension of my family and I am lucky to have them all around for the good times and the bad.

How have people tried to label you or your friends in the past?

Welcome reader!! (at this rate this will be my entire first blog :?)

I feel as if i should give you a brief insight into my mind, as I am hoping that you share similar Interests, Goals, Problems orย  your just generally a RAD person!!

Fitness and Health are 2 things that I am super passionate about, healthy body = healthy mind. I love the stress relief from going for a good workout or run, I am currently loving crossfit! every day/week/month is never the same and lets face it who doesn’t love a good challenge.

I love to cook :D!

I still take Ballet classes, I have always enjoyed dancing it provides escape and the ability to express yourself through movement and music at the same time.

I own a small business ๐Ÿ˜€ if you feel the need to check it out


Last and not least Fashion is a massive part of my life it affects almost everything I do, from the stock I order for my store, what I wear, how I do my hair, what music I listen to even what I eat.

Now reader I feel as if by this point you have a ruff idea of who I am, but we have plenty of time to keep getting to know each other :D!
