This last week has been quite lazy, spending time just me and Golden Boy (only a little bit of work got in the way) and doing a bit of tidying around the house – although looking at the state of it right now you would think I hadn’t done anything, but I did! I even washed windows! Anyway last night was a humongously bloody awful night, there were tears and swearing, there were digging nails into palms, there were declarations of “I cannot go on like this anymore!” All because I couldn’t sleep. Ridiculous, Yes I have had less than an hour sleep. Yes my eyes have puffed up like I have had an extreme reaction to something – maybe I am allergic to the inside of my eyelids… and lucky Biggy and Golden Boy as I am absolutely no fun to be around – but in the light of this very sunny day, it isn’t all that bad. I think. I just approach tonight with some trepidation.

Anyway vent over, as I was saying I have had a very lazy week, and during the laziness I got to attempt some baking and I tried some Raspberry Almond Shortbread Cookies from Parent Pretty, and of course mine did not turn out as lovely looking as theirs – my first batch were too big and leaking over the sides a bit and although I was more careful with my second batch I then forgot about them and they were a little browner than they should have been, but they really did taste great, I am a huuge fan of shortbread and these will most definitely be going in my recipe box.
