How to talk to someone (without them dying of boredom)


I'm back.

It's been eleven days since my last post. How was your Christmas? Did you have a brilliant New Year?

So you may have noticed the extremely weird and long title? You probably did. You know when you are having a conversation and then you both don't know what to say and there's a long, akward silence where you stand there for ages and then end up saying "So..." on repeat? This list of non-small talk questions will make your talking life much more interesting. Obviously you should always start with introducing yourself, ask them the usual questions and once you get to know them better, ask them some of these random questions:
  • If you were an instrument, which one would you be, and why?
  • If you could bring a fictional character to life who would it be, and why?
  • If you were an animal what would you be, where would you live, and why?
  • If you weren't human, what living thing would you be, and why?
  • If you were an item of clothing, what would it be, and why?
  • If you could meet anyone on Earth, who would it be, and why?
That should give you an interesting conversation! Ha ha- a very crazy one too!

I heard this saying recently, what do you think about it? Here it is:

You can learn more about someone in one hour of play than in a year of conversation.

What does it mean? I don't know if the word "play" means sport or playing as in "Yippee! Let's go on the slide again!" Do you know?

I am going to put a saying or quote in each of my blogs from now on, to give you something interesting to think about.

Ginger and Chocolate Biscuits

Hi guys!
This is a really nice recipe, which I found in a cookbook in my kitchen (a really old one without a publisher written on it!) and I came across a recipe for 'biscuits'. They could have came up with something more original! Anyway, I tried that recipe but the biscuits were very plain and boring, so I decided to spice it up a little (I actually used spices) ;)

Here is the recipe I use (which is half from the book and half from me!)

Makes about 18 biscuits (it depends on the cookie cutter you use, really)

For the biscuits:
350g plain flour
3 teaspoons of ground ginger, or 4 teaspoons if you're a ginger lover!
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
100g butter
175g soft light brown sugar
1 egg
4 tablespoons of golden syrup

For the chocolate icing (don't really know what to call it!):
165g milk/dark chocolate (whichever you prefer)
Handful of sprinkles

Heat your oven to 180C, 350F gas mark 4.
Storage:Keep in an airtight container and eat within six days.

Autumn Touches for your Bedroom ;)

Hi guys... So, well this is awkward. I've been gone for WAY too long, I think the last time I posted was in June. That's 3 MONTHS!!! I'm sorry guys!! I had an extremely busy summer, and I honestly had more important things to be doing than sitting on my laptop, typing. But now that its officialy AUTUMN  (WHOOP WHOOP), and I'm back at school, I feel like it's time to start this up again.

I'm so excited to be back, and what better time to come back than in autumn? I mean, who doesn't love autumn. If you're new around here, I love listsing things. But most of you know that already. Here's a list of reasons why I personally love autumn. (Or fall, which is an awesome name for it hehe)
