I have been trying to open my WordPress app since I updated it.
Two days ago, iTunes alerted me to the fact that I needed to update the version of WordPress on my phone. As I get irritated by the icon indicated when something is due an upgrade, it didn’t take me long to comply with the request. I set it going and forgot about it until later that day. A little blue dot indicating its completion.
I tried to open the app and as usual, my phone threw me out.
My phone needs an upgrade – I mean it is long overdue. My phone is so slow and confused, it either reacts really slowly or doesn’t react at all. Anyway, I tried to open it a few times and the few times I tried I was thrown out of it, so I left it alone. A few hours later, I tried again, again, I was thrown it. I was getting impatient.
It wasn’t until I tried continuously that I realise the upgrade hadn’t worked.
I had WordPress, but not in a workable form.
As I had neither WordPress for iPhones OR access to a computer – my laptop is still on the blink – I couldn’t post for two days.. :( Makes me sad.
I still haven’t figured out how to make it work so I’ll probably just wait for the ‘bug fixes’ update to be released patiently :)
I should really also get a new laptop.. And upgrade my laptop..
Shoulda, coulda, woulda.. WILL! *sigh* lol

I always find it a tad creepy when I’m sitting on the underground and of all the empty seats surrounding me the guy chooses to sit next to me.
I find it weird and I find it uncomfortable. Maybe they are doing it and filming it to see how people react and then put it on YouTube.. Ooh I’m going to be on YouTube!
So the gentleman came and sat next to me. I found it odd as around me alone there were 5 empty seats. Anyway. He kept glancing at me and at one point I looked at him and he was just staring. I quickly turned my glance to the floor.. But wait. Why was I turning away when he was being the weirdo. I still didn’t want to look up though.
Thankfully he got off the train before I had to and went on his merry way.
I do love London.. But sometimes.. :D

So.. I’m sure you know.. My life is just a major love affair with food.
I love cooking it.. Eating it.. Talking about it. It is a major part of my life because a lot of how I try and bring people together is with food.
It is almost that time of the year when I will host my pre-Christmas/holiday dinner party. I have kind of sort of got a menu, but it’s definitely something I still need to work on!
It’s a big part of my life. When I was younger I wanted to be a chef.. But I didn’t like certain things and had allergies to others.. But I still loved to eat.. Still do :)
My food journey is crazy.. Every day I get an email from a food/cooking blog I follow giving me fuel for my addiction.. And I love it!
Food has definitely been one of my favourite journeys and I’m definitely on for the whole ride!xx

This evening I started my conversational Portuguese classes.
They will be mainly one-on-one sessions with the teacher and focus on my profession and things related to it as well as covering any other areas I feel that I need to know.
I was entirely serious when I said I wanted to be fluent in Portuguese and am so proud of myself for taking these steps. Soon it will be second nature and instead of having to think about things I will be able to respond naturally. That’s what I’m looking forward to.
I will have classes once a week every Tuesday or Wednesday for however long it takes until I am amazing! I have been warned that I shall receive plenty of homework and should be doing more reading outside of class than he is doing.. Luckily for me that was already the idea..
Now.. If for any reason I feel like running off back to Portugal I will be a pro!
I shall keep you updated with my progress intermittently.
Obrigada, boa noite! :D

I like bento boxes..
This is what I had the other night:
I had teriyaki beef fillet with salad.. Sticky rice topped with tuna flakes, tempura vegetables and some orange and red currants for afters..
I love Japanese cuisine.. To be honest there are only a few that I do not like.. Or are not very fond of.. But I definitely love Japanese food.. And I kind of want more..

As quick as this post begins it is probably also going to end.
I am shattered. My head is pounding and my eyes sore. I close them and it feels like my heart is in my head.. And the clock is ticking extremely loud.
My head feels weighted.. Heavy. I tried to get up, it was dizzying, so I sat back down.
Soon I will need to be awake for work. Hopefully I will wake up in time enough to make myself some lunch. If not I do not think I have a backup plan..
I hope you have all had a wonderful day!

I went to a lovely Japanese restaurant this evening for dinner to celebrate my housemates birthday.
The restaurant was called Little Tokyo.
It has the best Japanese food and we always end up there if there is something to celebrate.. Or if we just want food!
For starters I had Dim Sum Sui Mai (one of my favourites), main I had a beef fillet teriyaki bento box and for dessert I opted for what I thought was orange sorbet and was told was orange sorbet and I don’t think it was. To drink I had a cocktail called Oriental Breeze that comprised of a mix of vodka, cranberry juice, lychee and lime. It was quite tasty.. It was just a small glass that seemed to be filled with more ice than cocktail.
After that whole meal I found that I was still hungry?! What?! My stomach was acting like a bottomless pit of nothingness.. Like I hadn’t just eaten all of what I’d eaten.. I don’t think it was actually that much to be fair.
I’m now back home.. Laying in bed.. Thinking I probably should have taken some to go..
That would have been a splendid idea..
We will probably almost definitely be back there soon.. It’s really just a matter of when! I feel a dim sum urge coming on.. :D
