So Isaac was out the house yesterday and I thought that I would make the most of it by making macaroons for the first time; (The meringue and almond kind, NOT coconut). It’s not too complicated a recipe, well the book I’ve got isn’t but some are. However there was one stage that I did not know what I was doing at and so this combined with the fact I am a novice piper in the kitchen, caused problems later on. They cracked in the oven, had no frilly feet and were not quite cooked through when I took them out. I know where I went wrong though which is good, as the next batch will be 100X better, but despite the issues with appearance they are still extremely delicious; which is what counts really isnt it!
I honestly nearly didn’t go in but you know what? it wasn’t no where near as bad as I thought it would be. The finished result is perfect! I love it so much! Will post a picture when the printer has finished taking foreverrrr. I actually felt quite chilled out lying there in the window of Kazbah while he drew away; not saying it wasn’t painful or anything, it was, but it’s more annoying than anything. And I even surprised myself by being able to watch him doing it towards the end without feeling sick. I felt on such a high afterwards, a complete euphoria, because I had overcome something that had scared me so much before. It was also a big step in terms of my old relationship, as I know I would never have gone for it if I was still with him. So overall Whoopieee! for me!
and am ABSOLUTELY terrified!!!!!!!! Can’t wait for it to be over and just be able to look at it finished on my arm but am seriously crapping myself till then. Just saw a pic someone had blogged of a lady having a tattoo and felt sick with nerves; but am determined to go through with it because what is life if you don’t do things that scare you!? I’ve done plenty of things that terrified me beforehand but you have to do them to get the results/answers you want. So big up for thurs!
