If you follow my page on Facebook - (put @kimberskitchen in the search bar and you should see me) you’ll see I made a funny video at the weekend, making cocktails and generally enjoying myself. Might have had something to do with the 2 cocktails I’d had in the afternoon!
My boss at work had given me a few suggestions on outfit and styling which I went with, people who know me know if I take something on I really go for it! She had made a promise if it was funny she would share it with all her friends on Facebook, she has over 5000 so we were hoping it could generate a few extra views and get my page noticed. 10pm now the following day, I've had a grand total of 62 views, not quite the viral video we were hoping for. The quest will go on.
Back to the website ,this is my first attempt at a website, I’ve spent a lot of time visiting sites and pages over the years but its only now you when you come to compose your own you realise how hard it actually is. I'm not shy but it feels a bit like one of those awkward first days where you feel like you're either being silent or talking at them! I’m also discovering im easily distracted, I start one subject then move onto another without finishing the first! I’m thinking a task list like I use at work may be a good idea. Any suggestions from fellow bloggers?
Last night I added a new string to my cocktail making bow, my first ever Mock tail. How can you take one of the most famous cocktails a Pornstar Martini and turn it into an alcohol free drink for one of your pregnant friends? Well I took an alcoholic recipe off a well-known site and substituted all the alcoholic ingredients with an alternative. I must say I was very impressed, with drinks like that anyone doing dry none drinking months for charity id highly recommend trying one. I’ve only made one so far but keep an eye out for my mock tail updates, my next attempt will be a mojito! Which happens to be my favourite cocktail personally so it will be a good judge of my mixing skills!
Following my last blog post my boiler is still faulty L going to be £245 for the repair, oh well I’ve had no repairs for 2 years + so I’ve saved a fortune in monthly cover charges I guess silver lining and all that jazz, it is swaying me towards my Wood burning stove though, I’ve been thinking of buying one after using a log cabin for a weekend break with one fitted, just need to find a good wood supplier anyone know of any? Or have any trees I could come chop down?
Had a night off the cocktails tonight, drinking on a school night is never good! It would help me a lot for people to give me some inspiration for cocktail creations, comment with a favourite ingredient or flavour and ill see what I can create, I want to make this site a Social affair. Thanks for reading.
Back soon Matt J
