what do you do to feel normal?

If the world is slightly outta whack, even in the best way possible, what do you do to feel grounded? Have a bath? Glass of wine? 

My house, while mostly entirely lovable, does not have a bathtub.

And my pregnancy disinclination for wine is still hanging around. 

So I bake.

We have lots of lovely visitors at present, and I cannot resist a bit of kitchen experimenting!

And so we have:




125g butter, melted

½ cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 cup rolled oats

1½ cup self-raising wholemeal flour

1 tblsp wheatgerm

½ cup desiccated coconut

¼ cup orange juice

½ cup chocolate chips


Melt the butter and add the sugar. Add the egg. Stir through the oats, flour, wheatgerm and coconut. Add the OJ and then the choc chips. 

Bake on cookie trays for approx 12 mins on 180°C. Makes 24 (I think. I didn't actually count them.)

Titbit for the day (I apologise, dreadful, I know) – it takes approximately twice as long to type a post one handed if you blog while breast feeding.

(I did apologise!)
