Seriously, for a relatively smart girl, I cannot melt chocolate. I remember doing so in the past, most recently last February when I was in Kenmare on an outdoor activity trip for Gaisce. And it was successful. But now I try doing it for the topping for the caramel squares and it seized and went grainy. Looks shit now. It’s because I didn’t stir it or I had it on too high a heat as I have learned from Youtube videos I just watched. I really should have watched them beforehand because then I would have known to add a spoon or two of vegetable oil to fix it. So now they look like a five-year-old made them. Everyone’s just going to have to be blindfolded as they eat them now.

I’ve decided to make myself some caramel squares, seeing as I’ve nothing better to do due to the oh-so-lovely Irish weather. Just waiting for my mother to leave the kitchen….
A friend of mine recently told me how her parents had washed their hands of her. Didn’t sound too appealing to be honest…I mean my life has to be financed in some way. Yesterday though, it sort of happened for me. I went into town with my mother and brother because I needed to get books for school and I was meeting friends later on. Anyway, my mother, brother and I went to Coffee Central in the market to meet my aunt for, well, coffee. This particular coffee house is a a counter on a corner with about 6 seats. Due to the fact that it was written about in a newspaper recently my mother loves the place. Personally I would prefer somewhere with an adequate level of seating, but not my mother. The place was full, so I said ‘Can we not just go to Butlers? I dunno why you’re so obsessed with this place,’ to which my mother replied ‘I am not obsessed. There is a smaller cp of coffee here and it is much nicer.’ Whatever. So basically she ended up telling my aunt and I to goo for coffee ourselves and she’d meet me in half an hour to get my books and proceeded to storm off. Oh the joys.
The night has arrived. The night we have all been waiting for I’m sure..Tonight, Saturday 4th of September, at 9.35pm Ryan Tubridy will, for the very first time, present the Late Late Show as it enters into its 47th series. My, what a milestone in all our lives. Tune in people! You’ll be telling the grandkids in years to come..
