Today normal services resumed; my pains disappeared and there was no sign of Baby Mac making an appearance, so we ran a few errands, one of which is my favourite thing these days! Scan as you shop in Tesco! So. Much. Fun. You can tell Matthew feels the same.

In the evening we hung out with some friends, which involved many laughs and some pineapple…both good things which could potentially bring on labour, heh heh heh.

Sadly not.

I thought yesterday was my last baking session before we move out of our lovely first home, but today I ended up making cookies. One final messy bake! One minute I was laying on the sofa, not feeling overly spiffing, and the next my mind was overrun with thoughts of cookies (and we still had ingredients left for them too!) so I hopped up (HA! More like slowly rolled off the sofa…) and headed for the kitchen.

Always remember to chill your cookie dough before you bake it! Usually I pop it in the fridge overnight, but today I just left it in for a couple hours.

I made sticky toffee pudding for the first time today, to send off to the Free Church Youth Conference. Super easy to make! Kind of tempted to do it more often now…but I’m not overly obsessed with sticky toffee pudding. That’s usually because it can be too dry, and I need an equal amount of ice cream to get through it, but homemade baking is always better so perhaps I’ll add it to my repertoire.
