Oh!Bento UK’s second blogiversary!!!

Today is my second blogiversary!

And while I am extremely happy to have made it this far I am a little sad that I have let my bento making slip recently.

Sadly life has thrown a lot of things my way, such as not being able to eat anything other than Mcdonalds without getting ridiculous stomach pains and other nastiness.

But I will start making bento again soon! Once life has settled a little, I promise.

So please keep your eyes peeled and I hope to be bento making and blogging again soon!

Thank you all and here’s to many more years!!!

Easter Bento #1

It’s been so long since I posted a bento!!

It’s been just as long since I’ve eaten one, what with starting a new job and trying to get into a routine, I ended up relying on fast food.

As Easter is approaching you should be expecting a lot of Easter themed bento! ( I thought it was in March but a quick Google search shows it is in April..Who knew?!)

So here is a bento I made for last nights tea :Image

In my Monbento Square I have:

It was a very tasty meal, maybe not as exciting as some bento but I think it has it’s own charm, what do you think?

I would be extremely cautious when it comes to ordering from the Eaglemoss website and where
possible I would only buy these magazines in store (as I have been doing).

I ordered a large amount of back copies for some friends in America who cannot get them any
other way. I ordered them on the 22/11/13 and paid for next day delivery.

The magazines didn’t arrive.

Eaglemoss have again made an attempt to fix the issue, one parcel arrived with some of the
missing issues. After another exchange of messages I was told I would received the rest of the
issues when they are back in stock.

A few days later another parcel arrived with a few more copies.

Now to wait for the final few!
