Webanswers and GoogleAdsense

Just a little update. Some of you may remember that I started blogging as a means of earning money with Google Adsense, but I've only made like less than $3 with my blog .. but I still continue because I've grown to really like blogging. 

Anyways on my quest to earn money through Google Adsense I told you guys about webanswers! Well I joined on January 19th 2010 and guess what.. I am only $0.60 cents away from earning my second hundred! I haven't received a check as yet though but that's because my PIN number didn't arrive until like 3 months after. So I think that webanswers is definitely worth it.. I earn most of my adsense money through that site even though I was on vacation for the entire month of April.. Yay me!!!

So I'll close with that good news for the night. 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Easiest Cake Recipe in the World

I have to share this recipe! I got it as an email and I don't know who came up with it or where it originated from so I can't credit the person for sharing this recipe but I still want to share it. It's lunch time here and I just finished eating lunch and started craving something sweet... there was nothing in the kitchen other than sugar and Nesquik chocolate powder that I use to make hot chocolate to drink at night. Then I remembered this email I got a long time ago and I searched my inbox, made the cake and enjoyed it! So here it is. Do enjoy! And thanks to whomever created it! 


 4 tablespoons flour
 4 tablespoons sugar
 2 tablespoons cocoa
 1 egg
 3 tablespoons milk
 3 tablespoons oil
 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
 A small splash of vanilla extract and your favourite tipple
 1 large coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to your largest mug and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using), vanilla extract and a drop or two of your favourite tipple, then mix again.


Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high).
cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!


Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).

 And why is this the most dangerous 
cake recipe in the world? Because now you are only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night! You are going to forward this straight away, aren't you...

Okay so there you go! Do enjoy!
Have a great day.

Dealing with Disappointment

I know life can't always be happy and honky dory. I know that things don't always work out how we want them to and I even know that not everyone is happy ever day of their life but somehow I don't know how to deal with disappointment. Early this  year I got a really great offer for something that I wanted to do and then today I found out that now I'm not going to get what I was promised and the terms and conditions of the original offer have drastically changed. 

I'm waiting on my husband to come home to get his input into the whole thing and I even emailed my best friend who is living in London at the moment to get her advice but at the end of the day I still can't get this feeling of disappointment to vanish. At times like this I feel to eat a nice slice of chocolate cake or a sinful piece of cheesecake with a glass of delicious Coca-Cola....... and I don't mean Coca-Cola Zero which I am forcing myself to drink (it actually taste good though) as my attempt to not put on the extra calories that is found in just about any and everything on the face of this earth! 

So how do you guys deal with disappointment? I think maybe it's time for me to come up with a life plan or something! I am so unsure as to what my future holds! My husband job does not allow for any future plans.. be it in one week time or one  year or even five years time! For instance, if we plan a trip.... without any notice and up to the morning when we have to leave for our flight.. there is always the possibility of his company changing our plans! So how are we supposed to plan our future when we don't even know how long we will be here in Brazil or where next we will be? Ooooohh I know I'm taking out my frustrations on my blog but isn't that one of the great things about blogging? Getting to rant and rave about what's on my mind?

Okay so hope you guys are having a better day than I am having.

Happy Mother's Day!

I know I am very late in writing this and this should have been done last night or first thing this morning but I was having such a wonderful rainy Sunday cuddling up with my hubby and watching romantic movies that I neglected to come online and wish all the great mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day! 

I hope all of you guys who are lucky to be with their moms on this special day did something (be it a small or grand gesture) to show your mom that you love her. I know not everyone in the world has a good relationship with their moms, some might not even know their moms but remember a mother is not only the person who gave birth to you but someone who played a big part in your upbringing. I know I have lots of aunts who took part in my upbringing and actually the person who played the biggest role in bringing me up was my Uncle ... so I guess you could say he played both a mother and a father role! So Happy Mother's Day to my dear uncle as well who's not answering his phone at them moment :-)

Okay guys back to my lazy wonderful Sunday!

Have a great week this week.
