an afternoon in where ever my grandad lives

Yea yea I know the title of the blog is the least catchiest thing ever but I have no idea where my granddad lives except it’s in England, which is not remotely helpful.

However yet again I found myself reaching for the camera as I went on a walk and yet again found myself getting lost I was so far behind everyone (and yes I have done that before do not be surprised). I really love walks; like I have said previously, but there is something special about walking somewhere you have never been before it like you have the power to create this wonderful world that you never seen before and see it how you want to see it. Not as a place where you go to relax from stress but a place connected with
happy, funny, weird and wonderful memories, because that is what life is about after all living it to the most and living the memories even more. So I am now going to leave you with a little quote to keep you thinking and some more photography of trees.

making (chocolate) shortbread!

Hello people of the wonderful world, you are now about to experience my awful skills that I have at writing recipes, enjoy!!!

You will be needing:
100g flour
25g cocoa powder
100g butter
50g sugar
50g chocolate (I used minstrels and maltesters, but normal chocolate will do)
The zest of 1 orange
if you are unsure how to zest a orange use this bit of any grater and just grate it like you would with cheese


Set the oven to 180c, then line a tray with baking paper (I've lined it with a Silicone thingy but you can do it with whatever you like).

Put all of your ingredients in your bowl then mix together (I forgot to add the cocoa powder so I added it later.) If your butter is hard DO NOT MELT IT, or add water or any other liquid as this will turn them to splodge and that is not the aim of today, but after using this recipe you might have splodge any way.

next take small tablespoon sized bits of the dough and roll it in too balls and put on to the baking tray, this mixture makes 12ish so that gives you a guide of the kind of size to make them. When they are on the tray flatten them into circles like this:

They should then be cook it the oven for 10-15 mins or until softish hardish, then let them cool and eat!!!!!

Thank you for reading people of the world that now probably have some soggy splodgy shortbread in their kitchen (I did warn you.) I also should mention I have enlisted my good friend ***** to join me on my journey to writing blogs.

hill walks and being clueless

I still don’t know what this blog is going to be about but I think that I will just write about whatever pleases me on that particular day.

Today that would be walking on the hills where I live. I love where I live and the walks that I can go on never get old and continue to relive stress from a hectic day.

When walking on the hills I find it very relaxing to just take photos of what is around me and of just nature in general, and then later I will look back and it just helps me have a bigger perspective of life and see the real beauty of life and nature. This find is better than anything else to just forget about the stress of that day.  There are obviously other things that help me but if you go walking at 8pm and there is no one else around and you could be alone in the world for all you know, you can’t help but forget your problems.
 Goodbye bye sweet people that are reading this, I shall write again soon
