A Snapshot: Tuesday


- today is my ma’s birthday! yay! i’m spending the day baking the birthday cake she’s requested ( lime cake with cream cheese frosting), and have managed to get lime syrup everywhere. everything in our house, including the dog, is covered in a film of stickiness. still, i’m hoping it’ll be worth it! i just tasted a spoonful (or ten) of leftover syrup, and it was mighty delicious! as well as cake, we’ll be having dinner of roast duck legs with a blackberry and balsamic sauce, served with roast potatoes, and sauteed spinach. yum!
- whilst my cake was baking this afternoon, i watched nativity. yup, it’s a christmas film. and it was 100% awesome. 
- homeland update: jason and i are halfway through the second season. it’s epic, and amazing, and i don’t want it to end. can anyone recommend a good tv series to fill the void when we’re finished watching this season of homeland? we tried madmen the other day, and got about half an hour into the first episode before getting bored and switching off! is it worth persevering with? :)
today: i’ve been listening to- lana del ray off to the races. watching- last night’s episode of miranda. eating- yesterday’s mushroom risotto!
how has your tuesday been so far, my lovely readers? :)

    Sounds like you’re having a good day, the cake sounds yummy! I was at sixth form this morning but I had a half day so I’ve been writing posts for my new blog :) I came across yours on Sofia’s Journal the other day and I love it!

    Lie to Me is a great show! So addictive, my boyfriend and I just finished it! :( We’ve started watching ’24′ now and it’s really interesting and very gripping too! You can get both of them on LoveFilm. x

    All that food sounds delicious!
    I recommend Breaking Bad if you haven’t already seen it. It takes a couple of episodes to into but after that you become addicted. I’ currently on serious three but it won’t last long as I’m watching about four episodes a night!!

    If you like Homeland, you should try The Killing – it’s subtitled but really gripping, if a little disturbing…

      Oooooo that is a show i have been meaning to sit down and watch for a while!

    Rosie, you have to be in the running for the “best daughter” competition – you are so sweet to bake a birthday cake for your ma!!!!!!
    I second 24 as a recommendation – it is so easy to watch several episodes in one sitting.
    I really enjoyed Sherlock but it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
    So glad you’re enjoying Homeland, my bf and i love it!

    I’m having an exhausting Tuesday, but all the hard stuff is done now, so I’m going to be curling up with tea and Netflix xx

    Stick with Man Men! Yes it’s a lot slower than Homeland, but it’s all about the detail rather than the action….plus I love the clothing style. Maybe give it another whirl?

    I keep meaning to give Homeland a go! I’m currently absorbed into the world of Dexter though, I’d definitely reccomend it (unless you’re against a bit of gore!)

    LOVE Homeland. Maybe try The Good Wife. Girls is amazing, but not sure how much a guy would get from it :P
