Project Christmas // Gingerbread men

How do you get your festivity up a notch? Make gingerbread men.

After a day filled with Christmas music, shopping and putting up the tree it was time to get the taste of Christmas… And obviously have some fun! 

Our gingerbread men were pretty simple to make and only took about 15 minutes to cook, so if you have some spare time definitely make some. 

They tasted amazing and we managed to make loads more than what the recipe originally stated, which is always a bonus. 

If you would like to try them out here is the recipe

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! 

Last weekend it was finally time … Finally time to blast the Christmas songs, eat some pigs in blankets and put the tree up. I was so excited!

After looking for a few weeks we bought a brand new 7ft tree, gold LED lights and gold and red decorations. Due to this taking place in October/ November I had too put them in to storage and wait for the first weekend in December before they were allowed to make an appearance.

We started by following the instructions and clipping each section of the tree together (which took longer than expected), this was followed by placing all 1000 led lights around each layer of the tree. It was then time for the main event – putting the decorations on. Due to my hate for anything being uneven we had to make sure all decorations were in pairs and symmetrical.

After about three hours this was finally achieved!

  

Bonfire night// Fireworks 

 
Better late than never!

Every year hundreds of locals from both sides of the Runcorn bridge gather to watch the fireworks and this year was no different. 

Being from Runcorn we don’t really have high expectations for things, but the fireworks are one thing we do get right, and this year was no exception. The fireworks were even better than last years and were definitely worth the wait in the cold.

Same time next year? 

Being a blue // Everton

 I’m a blue!

For years I have supported Everton and have spent the last few years being a season ticket holder sitting in the lower gwladys. Being an Everton supporter at times can be tough, but you won’t find many clubs that have fans that are that vocal. From the ongoing chants, to the boo’s toward the opposition, you will always have something to keep you entertained. The people you sit with end up your best mates for just over 90 minutes and if you ever want to complain about a controversial issue that is obviously not your player’s faults, you will have over a dozen people who will back you up and agree.
It may not always be fun, but it is most definitely an experience.
