Today has been great; it's been fun, educational and well, nice...
Not that I got to bed too late the night before, but I had a lie-in this morning - and it was the first proper lie-in that I've had for a while. I slept until 10.30am and lounged about in bed until noon when I decided I should get up and hop on a bus to Micro Direct where I intended to buy myself a new PC, or at least components so I could build my own.
Unfortunately, the person who served me in Micro Direct didn't seem to know what he was doing. If he did, I was mistaken because he showed a severe lack of confidence in what he was doing. I ended up being massively disappointed and left empty handed.
I returned home not long before Emily Walker did and we cracked open a few beers and started making a snowman in the back garden. This was pretty fun; I've not made a snowman for years! We took a bunch of photos of the snowman making process. I hope you're impressed with our snowdude.
The day was finished off nicely when Em and I cooked an awesome Sunday Duck Roast. It took a while, but we filled the gap with awesome conversation and got there eventually with the dinner, which tasted amazing! Pictures of this are for the benefit of Andy Allen, of course.
I love you, Walker.
Duck is kind of a mix between Beef and Chicken... Biffen!

Take that Sunday, in all your roast boast glory! Well, guess what? Roast dinners aren't just reserved for Sundays anymore! TUESDAY ROAST, BITCHES!

Well, that looks like rain. It's still quite sunny in old Urmston today - but the big raincloud on the left of this image suggests that it won't last very long... or maybe the rain will just pass over - the sky is still quite clear.
So, right now I'm doing pretty much the same as yesterday; sat on the doorstep in the sun, watching the cats play (and fight) in the garden. I'm eating Easter eggs, listening to my library on Last.fm and surfing the web.
Earlier today I went to meet Rachael Burns and her friend Flick in Platt Fields park, followed by an awesome Sunday Roast at Trof in Fallowfield. I don't see Rach so much, but it was nice to hang out.
I feel like playing Xbox 360 all night tonight and I think I might just do that!

Mmm, I just made myself possibly the nicest Sunday Roast I've ever eaten. I wanted it to be a little different, and cooked properly, so I referenced two recipes on the internet before I started cooking for ideas; Lamb Steaks and Rosemary Sauce on s4c.co.uk and Lamb Steak with Brussel Sprout Puree from bbc.co.uk. This resulted in a Sunday Roast but with the veg cooked with orange and lamb cooked with white wine.
To me, cooking proper meals wasn't a big deal before Vikki and I lived together - because I just ate whatever my mum bought. Now, however, I like to eat properly and would prefer to make the effort. I believe that anyone can cook; they just don't know how to, or believe it's more difficult than it actually is. Cooking proper meals daily is fun, easy and well-worth the effort because you're going to feel a lot better for it health-wise than if you were living off ready-made meals or junk food.
For anyone that's interested, here's the 'recipe' to the nicest Sunday Roast I've ever had (so far). I wasn't watching the clock, but the whole thing only takes around an hour, maybe.
