It's October 3rd | Friday Summary

I've decided I don't bake as often as I should. As a kid, I freaking loved baking those little box cupcake recipes that had Scooby Doo or a character of choice on them, so I decided to head on out at 10:00am to Morrisons to grab some ingredients and bake some cookies. Bad idea. Very bad idea. There's me thinking 'it's a weekday morning, everyone will be at work or still in bed so it'll be empty, right?' WRONG. It was like a granny trolley derby, everyone was determined to get in my way and I struggled to dodge my way through the aisles, in and out of the metal devices of destruction on wheels. (The trolleys, for anyone wondering what the hell I'm on about). The traffic there was awful too, stop starting all the way. Booo.

This is me trying to be organised and measuring everything out (which still went wrong).
HOWEVER ALL WAS NOT LOST and I did manage to get my ingredients back in one piece, huzzaaah! I spotted this Nutella Choc Chip Cookie recipe on butterbaking.com, and after seeing a few other bloggers take a stab at making them - a very good stab at that - I wanted to give it a go myself. 

Needless to say they were an absolute disaster! The original recipe made 32 cookies so I split it into 1/4 to make 8 tester cookies and completely f**ked up the measurements. The result? Well, they didn't look too bad, but they tasted more like a cardboard rock cake rather than a gooey cookie. Hopefully my second attempt on Sunday will have a better turnout, watch this space. 

I've also been invited to a swanky interview up in London on Tuesday, which don't get me wrong, I'm sooo made up about, but it's such a scary prospect for me. It'll be the first time I try to dilly-dally around London completely alone, with an important place to be and there's no way I can be late. I'm nervous enough for the interview as it is, let alone adding in the possibility of getting lost in central London. Eeeeek, panic attack central over here. It'll be amazing if they do like me though, as it is the field of work that I spent all of my 2 college years studying. 

Finally, I found this little guy whilst shopping and I got far far too excited - I couldn't leave him behind. IT'S A CHOCOLATE REINDEEEER! I made a Christmas Spotify playlist yesterday and got right into the festive spirit... I should probably try and get excited for Halloween first but damn THERE'S ONLY TWO MONTHS (and a bit) TILL CHRISTMAS! I think this is the earliest I've gotten excited for Christmas ever, and my only excuse is that it's my favourite time of the year. 

I'm sorry this post didn't really have much structure, I just like having a little chat sometimes, let me know if you like this sort of post too! I suppose all that's left for today is to walk the dog, prepare for the super scary interview and munch on some stiff cookies. Yum. 




  1. shame about the cookies not going to plan - at least they look edible though, I've had some baking disasters that have turned out A LOT worse looking haha x


    1. I suppose so, they still came out looking like cookies at least!
      I was so gutted but strangely, my dad loved them haha, determined to give them another try soon though :)

  2. Should not have looked at this post whilst i'm hungry! So excited that christmas chocolate is out already! Exciting?! xx

    1. Haha I swear they really don't look all that appetising in real life!
      Christmas chocolate is literally one of the highlights of my year, so so stupidly excited! xx
