    My first attempt at fondant for dh birthday. He loves bengals NFL team. I tried orange/black tiger stripes but it was a disaster. .. Had to chuck it and start again. Very very dodgy!! But the cake inside tastes good. It's sweet potato/Caramel white chocolate mud cake. Pity about the decorating.

    Attempting to make a cat tree.... I got 'scap wood' and ply wood from bunnings. Thought it was awesome that I got 'good' wood planks for free from bunnings. I nailed them together forming a block and mounted it to the ply wood. Alllllll of the planks split. Im not sure how long its gonna last the cat.

    Its not finished yet, doesn't look so bad from a distance but up close... yeah I cant tell what went wrong.

    NEVER DIY A CAT TREE. Ahhhh.

    When pregnant with ds I was cooking pasta so put the pot of water on the stove to boil but I turned the wrong element on. The element I switched on had a colander resting on it. Cue epic smoke and the worst smell ever. DH and I had to evacuate due to the smell (which lingered for days) oops!

    I made Nutella brownies last night which I've made before. Recipe said to cook for 30-35 mins but after 35 mins they were still runny so put the timer on for another 15 mins. Checked when the timer went off and they were still gooey so put the timer on for 10 minutes. By that stage, they'd been cooking for an hour so I thought surely they're cooked, so took them out without testing them and left to cool for 10 minutes. Plus it was almost 11pm and I just wanted to go to bed. Came back and cut into them and they were just goo - almost fully raw in the middle! Still can't bring myself to chuck them out though, they taste good if eaten with a spoon and the soupy texture is ignored!

    DF and I were heading out and I was berating him for not paying attention about something or other - and then I missed the last four steps, stacked it straight to the bottom of the staircase and busted my ankle.

    I'm not allowed to tell DF off while on the stairs anymore.

    Perhaps drilling pilot holes before nailing the nails in would've prevented the wood splitting.
