Why I've Been So Quiet..

Hey everyone! 

It's just a quick to post to say where I've been recently and what's been happening in the world of 
Sprinkle, Sparkle and Magic!

As you all know from the last post, I have recently got a new job which is still going great by the way! :D And although I may not be working up to many hours at the moment, (It's starting to go up from 10 hours though so that's good news!) I am still getting back into things, so it's knocking me off my feet a little getting back into this old routine. 

In other news, I don't know if I mentioned it in the last post, but I'll mention it again if so. I have LOADS of blankets to make at the moment, I only started making one and now everyone is wanting one, wool has been bought and ordered and the finish dates have been set! So I've got quite a few to do. 

I have one for August (Which is soon approaching around the corner!) Then I need to have 3 finished for November which isn't a long way away.So I'm a tad busy with that at the moment, then with my work on top, trying to fit in driving and my Health and Hygiene it's all go!

So it was just to say that I am quite busy at the moment and so I am being very quiet but when I do have a new recipe or something to talk about e.g Food. I shall let you all know and you will be the first. A new recipe post will be on its way shortly so keep your eyes pealed! 

Oh also! I saw Tom Jones last night in Scarborough!! It was awesome!! 

But I have to get all this done first!! Talk abut being multi-talented ;) 

Till next time! 

Much love as always,

It was okay!

Hey everyone!

How are well all today on this Monday afternoon? 

I would like to say that I am doing brilliantly, a little bit ill but other than that I'm good!

It's just a post to say that I survived working in my new job, and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, to be honest, it was quite great! 

I was, that is the keyword here people! I was going to write this but I've recently started watching New Girl and..well, I keep being distracted, but I will post this bloody post!

Anyway! The new job is going quite well at the moment, I've only done two shifts so far but I have loved it so much, it feels a bit like I'm working with Mel again, but on a bigger scale which is great! And the people there are so nice and it's such a laugh, for now it is anyway. But for now I can say I am happy there, I don't regret it - I would of regretted it more if I didn't go to it. And most of all...

Getting a bit obsessed with this program, I can't believe I've only just started watching this!! It's so good though! 

I've also decided that I will be creating a new blog, one to do with all the crafts that I do! Such as the blankets I'm doing at the moment, the list has gone up from two to six now can you believe it!?

3 x Baby Blankets 
1 x Blanket for Sam's mum
1 x For my mum
annnd 1 x for me! 

So I've got a lot of crochet to do, in so little time and I have nowhere to show it off, which is sad!

So when I get the new blog up and running, I shall post it on here!
Don't forgot that I have a blog for my book reviews too! Which I have two to write up for today, as well as some blog posts and recipes on the cake blog as well so a lot of admin stuff to do today!

For now, I need to go! 

Lots of love, speak soon!

Been a Long Time!

Hey everyone!!

How are we all? 

I've been meaning to do a post for a while now, but I've just been so busy with everything that I simply forgot - I'm terribly sorry! But it's not just you guys so don't worry, I've still got a couple of book reviews to do from a couple of weeks ago and I still need to update the main Sprinkle, Sparkle & Magic blog. 

Anyway, the reason I've been busy is due to many reasons. For one I recently got a new job, working in House of Fraser's Cafe, only started last week but I had a goof shift, everyone was nice and friendly so I'm hoping it will be okay. Only doing 10 hrs at the moment until I "settle" in there and then I will be moving up to 20 hrs (Whilst I'm at college) and more, so all is good! 

Speaking of college, I recently passed my Level 1 Cake dec with flying colours which I am so happy about, you just can't understand!! I have also been sorting out Level 2, to which I can now say I have successfully applied onto the course and will be returning back to college on the 8th September! Two days before my birthday, couldn't be better timing if the college tried :D So happy!

In some ways though, I haven't been doing much baking, which I'm starting to get itchy fingers cause I haven't done any for a while. But I'm going to do some soon :) I did make a chocolate cheesecake with Cadbury Twirl's which will be up on the blog soon.

I Don't know if I've mentioned it, but Sam (As some of you may know him from Instagram and Twitter) passed his driving test! Ever so proud of him, he's sorting out his Classic Triumph Toledo at the moment, he's itching to get out and drive those open roads, but insurance is being a bit of a pain in the arse at the moment. Can you believe we got an insurance quote for £22,500!? There's no need for it to be that much, just companies being greedy if you ask me!

But yeah, he passed and he's been sorting his car out today, sanding it down and giving it a good clean and polish - still got some body and engine work to do! I polished my car the other day, know it's not very exciting but it was so shiny, I was proud! 

So whilst Sam has been sorting the above car out, which is now more the blue colour on top  and without the stickers, I have been sat in the car (I nearly passed out of the heat! And the vinyl seats, my god thought my skin would stick to it, it was that hot!) I have been crocheting away, making a start on this lovely Christmas blanket, which will be a lovely surprise for someone :) 

Lovely little Christmas granny squares! I have this blanket to make and then another two! So I'm a bit of a busy bee at the moment, as well as cakes, the new job and college. So I may lack in existence for a little while but I will be back. Don't worry! I've been having so much fun creating this little blanket so far! 

This is what the blanket will be looking like, I know it's a bit eye boggling at the moment but there will be a while border around all the squares and then a big white border around the whole blanket. I don't know how big it's going to be yet, I think I'll just keep making them until I get the desired size.  But loving every minute of making them, becoming a bit obsessed if I'm honest! If you haven't guessed, if I'm not baking or reading I will be crocheting and sometimes I may be playing the drums! 

I've had this lovely man to listen to whilst I've been writing up this blog post, but I'm going to disappear for a while and get some fairy buns made up, as we're a bit peckish ;) 

See you soon everyone! 

Happy baking! 

Much love,
