Pancakes for one

Waking up craving pancakes but have no one to make them with? No sweat, I got your back. 

Just put 4 dessert spoons of plain flour, 1 egg and 6 - 8 dessert spoons of milk (add more if it isn't runny enough) and whisk together. Viola, the perfect amount for 2 pretty hefty pancakes. Fry with butter, smother in Nutella and fruit if it tickles your fancy and enjoy your fuss free pancakes all by yourself. Winning.

The Graduate Diaries - Chapter 6

I'm spending another weekend with absolutely no plans, and to be honest, that's quite the way I like it. Working full time is tiring, it's stressful and just plain annoying. But, it's easy to get into the rhythm. I am also trying to do at least something once a week after work, whether that's going to the cinema, going out for dinner or staying at work. Of course, sometimes this doesn't happen, but it makes me not feel so bad about not doing anything at the weekend.

In my last graduate diaries, I was talking about the London FOMO. I am definitely not feeling that right now. Spending most of my day commuting, no thank you! Yes, it would be great to have a few more friends closer, and the independence wouldn't go a miss, but I am enjoying my home comforts. 

But, not being in London has meant I have finally bought a car, and although I may have to sell it by summer (as I will have to change job after my traineeship is over), I am loving the freedom. I can stay out later, do more things. I can't wait until spring when I can whiz off somewhere after work and it still be daylight. 

Whilst life is going well, I am starting to feel like I was this time last year. The great thing about my job is that I finally have some real life experience for my CV, the bad thing is that I have no idea what I will be doing when my 12 month contract is up. I can't believe I am already nearly half way through. I have met some amazing people and done things I never thought I would do. Of course, work isn't always like that. There are days I want to cry, days when I don't know what I am doing, but also days when I feel like I am bossing it. It's a bit of a mixed bag. But, what I am going to do next is the question... 

I still think I am incredibly lucky to have gotten a job so quickly after leaving university in a place that I love and close to home. Life is comfortable, and it's just how I like it for now. 

(Plus how amazing do these nachos look)
