It was sometime last week that I attempted a slight variation on the chocolate chip cookies I’d made previously, which were so soft you had too tear them apart as they would not snap like biscuits.

You’ll get to read about this in another post shortly but, this past Sunday, I successfully led my first walk of the year, with previous walk-leading experiences having come all the way back in July.

This is I baked on my birthday, which was almost three-weeks ago to the day. It seems so long ago now… And yet, writing these words, I realise that I’ve eaten quite a lot of baked goods in a relatively short space of time! You could almost look at this one as the ‘warm-up‘ ahead of the chocolate overdose that was to follow days later!
