new job... award a new tattoo

Well I am addicted to tattoos... I also consider to get a lip piercing...

But I definitely will pierce my ear... again! :)

Here are some strange and wonderful tattoos I have found in the world wide web:

Aren't these just unique!

Oh and here is the last one I had done... last day of September

mahna mahna!

For some unknown to me reason when the most of the world saw The Muppets some time in December and January we here in UK did not.

But finally February 10th came and the film was out! But we, being so smart, decided to skip the cinema going during half term and went on Monday.

Oh what a joy!! It was soooo.... words cannot describe how excited I was to hear the "mana mana song"

I'm practically the muppets virgin, I only saw Muppets Christmas Coral. Wonder if it has anything to do with me being Russian. So many things got lost in translation... pity really!

This song just makes me soo happy! Extra happy points that these things are pink and hairy!

Muppets I love you xx

P.S. Tomorrow is Viera's last day at work. I'm sad to see her leave but everything is happening for a reason, and she has new things to learn. I'm sure whatever she decides to do she will be great at it as she was with us. I came there to work and got the great friend out of it.

I will be baking some thing... think Marble cupcakes :) Pictures will follow

keeping up with resolutions part 2

Well certain resolutions working out great... like cook more and being better friend...

I have quit my job... and yet I do not have another on just yet. I know it is not the best thing to do, but I was left with no choice. It is either I m quitting my self now or in about a month my evil boss would have sacked me.

I would have not argued if I did something wrong, but I was doing things that 2 shifts before me should have done. Yes, we all at some point work with idiots... But to blame me for "guest complaints" and "loss of revenue"?! Oh I don't think so... So I m in search of something that will pay bills and would make me happier...

Just wish me luck!!

I know it will all work out... But changes are scary. I have been putting up with shit form my manager for almost 3 years now... and only that often I can hear about "oh your rooms are terribly small"... All I wanted to say "just hold on, I will get the sledge hammer and make your room bigger"...

My fav pic

This is just great!

Please meet our naughty bunny Daisy and some of  mine pillow cases... It was fun to make them! Very tricky to get Daisy to stay still!

The cushion she's leaning on made mother in law Yvonne very happy! Best presents are handmade!!

baked mushrooms


Now this is our favourite snack, lunch... and simply delightful dish!


  • Large mushrooms
  • Favorited hard cheese (cheddar or parmisan)
  • Humus (optional)
  • Herbs such as oregano, basil.
  • Chilli flakes (optional)
Using the cheese grater grate the cheese on the lager side. 
Mix it with the herbs. 
Take the stem off the mushroom (you could make a soup out of stems, just put them in the freezer)
Spread a bit of humus on the mushroom (inside the cap, where the stem used to be)
Put grated cheese with herbs on top of humus.
And back for about 15min in 200 degree oven, or till the cheese is all melted and mushroom looks cooked.

Can be enjoyed by it self, or with a salad next to it.

It's a very fatty treat, so enjoy responsibly and you can always make it with low fat cheese and not add humus to it!:) 

Hope you will like it! 

Trip to V&A

I had a London trip again last week this time to get visa for little one to go to Russia. So I thought must combine the business and pleas...
