It was National Stress Awareness Day last Wednesday and it was made into topic 6 of BEDN. It takes an awful lot for me to get stressed out, there are a few things that push my buttons and send me straight to being a little stresshead though. Things like impoliteness and rudeness are the things that upset me the most. Especially when it comes from potential wedding vendors, that’s the only time I’ve become even slightly bridezilla.
I’m pretty laid back and have a tendency to stick my head in the sand when I can so everyday stresses and niggles don’t get to me too much. Apart from trying to ignore things I have a few things that I know I can always turn to to deal with a stressful situation and that’s what I thought I’d share with you today.
Unsurprisingly, the topic for day 5 of BEDN was Bonfire Night. I quite like Bonfire Night usually, even though we never really do anything specially for it. Well, when I say I like Bonfire Night I really mean that I like fireworks and sparklers. Who doesn’t like writing their name in the dark with a sparkler?
This year I never got a chance to see any fireworks at all. I was busy the weekend before, shopping for bridesmaid dresses. Which, by the way, was a success and I’ll share them with you soon.
Cheese! The topic for day 4 is Food Glorious Food and cheese is my pretty much my favourite food item in the world. I totally stand by the fact that there is no savoury food item you can’t make, at least, three times better with the addition of some cheese. This is actually a blog post I’ve been meaning to write since I discovered this cheese company at the Cake and Bake Show. I simply cannot rave enough about how good the Cheshire Cheese Company is.
I admit, a cheese company wasn’t what I expected to be one of the highlights to the Cake and Bake Show back in September but it really, really was.
