Butter Rum Bananas
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons light rum
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Grated rind of half a lemon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla or rum flavoring
4 small bananas, peeled and halved
Whipping cream or ice cream
Melt butter in a large skillet. Add sugar and water. Stir well. Cook until reduced to heavy syrup, stirring occasionally so the mixture doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Add rum, lemon juice, rind, and your choice of flavoring. Cook for 2 minutes, or until golden in color. Remove from stove and add banana pieces. Plunge them into the syrup, covering them as well as possible. Serve warm, not hot, topped with a dollop of whipped cream or alongside scoops of ice cream.

Birthday gifts

I got some lovely gifts for my birthday. I got spoiled by my sister. She got me a set with some slippers, body lotion, and body wash in it. She also got me some hugo boss perfume. Thats a very expensive perfume, and it smells really good. She also got me this cute little stress ball, with a picture of a pug on it. And she gave me a card with 20 euro in it. I am planning on buying something nice with the money over the weekend. Maybe a new dress top or a pair of shoes.

My aunt thats moms sister gave me a lovely gift also. She gave me some perfum too, the same one dr. barry wears, so I am in my element now, as I smell like dr. barry. Its a really lovely perfume, I cant spell the name of it, its a really expensive one too though. She also gave me some body butter, and some bath chrystals.

My cards I got with my gifts are really nice too. I love getting cards. I saved mine and put them on moms mantelpiece.

Mom is going to buy my gift at the weekend, she said she’d get me something to wear when we go shopping. I cant wait to try on some clothes and pick something out.

Its so nice to be spoiled. I’m such a lucky duck.

Song of the day…rainbow by Kesha

Rainbow

by Kesha

I used to live in the darkness
Dress in black, act so heartless, but now
I see that colors are everything
Got kaleidoscopes in my hairdo
Got back the stars in my eyes, too, yeah now
I see the magic inside of me
Yeah, maybe my head’s fucked up
But I’m falling right back in love with being alive
Dreaming in light, light, lights
This kitty cat lost her mind
Been lookin’ for a star-sent sign that I’ll be alright
Look to the skies
I’ve found a rainbow, rainbow, baby
Trust me, I know, life is scary
But just put those colors on, girl
Come and play along with me tonight
I’d forgot how to daydream
So consumed with the wrong things, but in
The dark, I realized this life is short
And deep down, I’m still a child
Playful eyes, wide and wild, I can’t
Lose hope, what’s left of my heart’s still made of gold
And I know that I’m still fucked up
But aren’t we all, my love?
Darling, our scars make us who we are, are
So when the winds are howling strong
And you think you can’t go on, hold tight, sweetheart
You’ll find a rainbow, rainbow, baby
Trust me, I know life is scary
But just put those colors on, girl
Come and play along with me tonight
You gotta learn to let go, put the past behind you
Trust me, I know, the ghosts will try to find you
But just put those colors on, girl
Come and paint the world with me tonight
Night, night, night, night, night
I found a rainbow, rainbow, baby
Trust me, I know life is scary
But just put those colors on, girl
You gotta learn to let go, put the past behind you
Trust me, I know, the ghosts will try to find you
But just put those colors on, girl
Come and paint the world with me tonight
Oh, put those colors on, girl
Come and paint the world with me tonight
Come and paint the world with me tonight

My broadband issue is fixed

So earlier today a guy from my broadband tech support team came out to my house to fix ongoing issues with the connection. It kept dropping. This morning, it was down for hours. I wasnt sure why this was happening. I have Efibre, so it really shouldnt happen at all. He looked at it, and then he said he’d test my line. He did that, and it looked like my upload speed wasnt set high enough, so he reset that first. Then he tested again, but there were still faults on the line, so he said he’d look at the phone sockets, and so he did. And what do ya know! The phone sockets were hit by lightning! Thats what he told me! When we had the last storm lightning must have fried them! So that is why the connection was dropping, so he installed all new phone sockets for me, and woohoo we’re back in business, everythings fine again! I was never so glad than when he fixed it, you should’ve seen me this morning when it was down, I had no clue what to do with myself, I literally was twiddling my thumbs! I could read, and I did, but that was about all I could do. He was a very nice guy too, very chatty and we had a good chat as he worked. So at least its fixed now. He gave his number to me just in case there are any more issues. There shouldnt be though. I was just stunned when he said the phone line was fried! I never expected that to happen!

Panick over!

Well guys, I am rethinking things. I may actually be able to stay in college after all. I panicked earlier, when I saw that F on my grades. I couldnt cope with it. But my friend denise emailed me, she said she got an F too. And she said she knows 8 others who also got f’s. So something is clearly up. Something is a miss.
I feel if I can sort it out thenI may stay in the course after all. Despite my symptoms, and despite what is going on, I do like the course, I enjoy it, I enjoy learning.
Denise has emailed brenda our coordinator. So have I. I also sent an email apologising for my earlier one I sent her.
I hope this works out. I am glad I wasnt the only one who got an F.
