Charles's house was broken into on Saturday night, while he was staying at my house and his brother was away (probably the first time in a year of living there that neither of them were home). We didn't know until we came back from Kraftbomb on Sunday.

They took money, a digital camera, a PDA type computer thing, a surfboard, and a few other bits a pieces.  Part of that money was several hundred dollars of Jellybones money (saved over many months of doing markets and lent to Charles briefly). I was going to take it on Sunday to bank the first chance I got.

That kind of thing really makes you feel stink about humanity.

I'm excited. You should be too!

Did anyone ever think that the word "business" was funny? Because it's like busy-ness?

Well I am definitely a busy-ness student. I have been so busy lately, not getting enough sleep and unfortunately not having much (well, any) time for crafty-ness. Uni is a relentless task master! Just finishing my last few assignments, then it's exam time. Fun.

Tomorrow I am going on a road trip with my dear papa to Palmerston North. He won a regional architecture award so we are going down to the awards functions (He won it for some apartments in New Plymouth he designed). It's going to be a seven and a half hour journey apparently. I do quite like road trips though (It's easy when you don't drive!). Dad's promised we can stop at op shops and antique stores on the way back. Yuuusss.

In all my madness of busy-ness I have managed to do some extra hours at work AND...

Auditioned for Wheel of Fortune. Ha! I'd really like to get on and win prizes but the idea of being on TV is a bit scary. I just have to wait and see what happens now!

Oh Yeaaaaaah

Here's a picture.

The end.

Just quickly...

Here are the new bones earrings. They're up on Toggle now too.

Kraftbomb was great! Yay for crafty awesomeness.  We had some new bones earrings (cast from some bone lollies I bought at the dairy down the road). I also ate waaaay too much cake despite Charles trying hard to be my healthy conscience.  I didn't manage to get back to City's stall to get one of her delicious cupcakes though, but there's always next time! 

I am now excited about doing some baking soon myself.  It's Charles' birthday soon and I'm soooooo excited. I love his birthdays because it gives me a chance to spoil him rotten and buy him presents and make things for him. Most of the year I resist this, although he does get the occasional present from places like the $3 Japan store when I can't help myself.  So last year I surprised him by baking a super awesome carrot cake (his fav flavour). I'm not sure I'd ever baked for him before. It was such an awesome recipe that I decided to make it again this year, AND make carrot cupcakes with the same mixture because the recipe makes a really big mix.

It's a Jamie Oliver recipe and I HIGHLY recommend it. You can find it here you want to try it.
I recommend being very careful with how much juice you put in the icing because I put too much in then had to add heaps more cream cheese and icing sugar which meant I had enough icing for 3 cakes. You can always add more later!

It's a really nice moist cake that's light but moist and not too sweet (hey, I love sweet food but some carrot cakes do get a bit much).

I'll let y'all know how it goes. With photos. I hope. Thinking of buying a new camera. Weeeee!

Oh... and I really want these.
