At the moment I feel like I'm about to pop with a mixture of stress and excitement! Only 4 days till we move! I'm a total worrier and although people are trying to help, I'm stressed 'cause it's not going how I thought it'd go, and I've kinda lost control. I know, makes me sound really bratty, but I'd had it all planned in my head, and now other people are taking over. It'll be alright on the day, I just need to start moving and I'll be alright!

And that put paid to it. I wonder who first discovered the power of poetry in driving away love?

I thought that poetry was the food of love.

Of a fine stout love, it may. But if it is only a vague inclination I'm convinced one poor sonnet will kill it stone dead

So what do you recommend to encourage affection?

Dancing. Even if one's partner is barely tolerable.

Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy.

Sooo only 11 days until we get the keys to our new house! Excited is a major understatement, I literally can't wait!! We've had a few people come round and view the flat, and it's really stressing me out trying to pack and keep the flat in a show home like state, so the moment that last box is in the new house is greatly welcomed. 
We've just had our current landlords over for a cup of tea, and to discuss when we're moving etc. They are literally the nicest landlords ever, and I hope our new ones are half as nice. They didn't look round our flat, they just said it was in great condition and they'll pop over and pick up the keys once we're settled in the new house. 
It means we'll get all our deposit back which is ALOT of driving lesson for me! I know, I know, in my new years resolutions I was meant to book my first lesson before now, but the move has thrown everything a bit off course.. I think spending all of my deposit on lessons rather than going to Mexico (it was a close call..) more than makes up for it though!

So I made the best birthday cake EVER for Josh. I know I'm blowing my own trumpet a bit but it was gorgeous! It was Nigella Lawsons Chocolate fudge cake (recipe here) and I bought these really cute fondant icing 
angry birds from ebay (ellamakescakes) which I would recommend if you're thinking of making one yourself. It went slightly wrong towards the end, as the cake split in half, but you could barely tell once it had been decorated!
