New Years Resolution!

Yes I said it! Jumped on the bandwagon! But it’s not a New Years Resolution for me, it’s for you!
I have a lot of hobbies, and I want to have time for all of them. I will always have time for bento, but not always for blogging.

My New Years Resolution is to blog consistently, for all of you. I want my blog posts to happily appear in your reading feeds at least once a week.
My work and other hobbies have caused me to be incredibly busy recently but I just can’t give anything up!
So…
I will post frequent, yet perhaps concentrated posts, mainly about bento, because, my blog is called sushisushibento!!

And a belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you!!

The things I do for love…

I did say I still had things to tell you about the Holiday season! Below is a picture of the presents all of my friends received for Christmas. I’m glad I managed to make nearly all of the Christmas gifts I gave, and I am particularly pleased that these ones tasted so good!

In the red basket/box things are 2 cupcakes:

– one chocolate peppermint (with a red candy button on top);

– one cranberry, apple and walnut (so amazingly tasty! and they used more of the turkish apple tea powder I have),

and 2 cookie sandwiches:

– one plain shortbread sandwiched around apple flavouredย butter icingย (turkish apple tea powderย again);

– one plain shortbread sandwiched around chocolate butter icing.

All my friends loved them all! And so did I!

What edible treats have you made recently?

Itโ€™s been a while…

Wow, I have been away for a while!

Let me explain….

I have recently set up a company blog, and wow that has kept me busy, and away from my own blog ๐Ÿ˜ฆ but that means more blog writing practice!!

My company has also moved office so I was offline for almost a week!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ sad times. And yes, I do have the internet at home but I am normally so busy at home, the only one that uses my computer is the bf!

So, I hope the two Bento posts I just posted made up for my time away!! Sorry! I will continue to post catch-up posts and reply to comments, etc.

Hope everyone has been well! I’m so looking forward to the holidays!!

Download 2013

I am going to Download Festival 2013.

I have booked my R.I.P. ticket (the small comforts!) I am going. Nothing and No-one will stop me.

Unless i grow a new gallbladder

The only time I have been to Download was 2008, and that was SO GOOD!

BUT…

Yes, this year, I was all booked and ready to go, but then I got stuck in hospital, in Devon, the Sunday before Download, away from home, because of a stupid gall stone!!

I was in hospital for 4 days, had an X-ray, MRI and and ERCPย (do not look up or click link if you are squeamish!!) and travelled home, ready to go to Download a day late, but ok with it, I’d still see the bands.

I didn’t go. I was soooo sick ๐Ÿ˜ฆ from the dye used in the ERCP and was in bed for another 4 days ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

This year coming, with no gallbladder to stop me, I will go!

And it will be AWESOME!!

Back from Holiday :S

Not sure whether I’m re-orientated yet. Going from gorgeous sunny Lanzarote, back to really windy and rainy and COLD England :S It’s been 5 days, but I want another holiday now!!

Moaning over, who wants to see some pictures??

Yes I went surfing!! ๐Ÿ˜€ At Famara beach ๐Ÿ˜€ I surf regularly in Devon and Cornwall anyway, but it was great being taught by a Mexican and a Welshman….yes I know I was in a Spanish speaking country!! That reminds me, I should write a post soon on surfing. I love it maybe just a little bit more than bentos! Sorry!!

Image

Lanzarote is a volcanic island. It has over 100 volcanoes!! Only one is active though, and I stood on the top of it! I can’t go on a holiday and not explore the place ๐Ÿ™‚

I have been a busy bee since I’ve got back. I stocked up my freezer with pre prepared vegetables ๐Ÿ™‚ and loads of Quorn and salmon ๐Ÿ˜› yummy. I need to get right on the Christmas shopping soon, or I will end up spending all my money on Bento items, I’ve just remembered I’m running out of furikake and miring, the horror! ๐Ÿ˜›

Hows everyones week been? Missed me? Nah …. ๐Ÿ˜›
