I just found out that my Dad has really, really high blood pressure. We don't understand it. He eats really well, exercises, looks after himself. He has to take his blood pressure 6 times a day until he returns to the doctor next week. It's been fluctuating but it's still really high.

I've never worried about Dad's health cos I'm always so preoccupied with Mum's. It's hard not to be really scared. I will tear down the sky if anything happens to him.

I've written this here because it's my journal, it's what it's for, but I'm disabling comments. Sometimes I do this. Sometimes I just need to post stuff for me and I don't necessarily want to talk about it.

Will make a proper post later.

Since I arrived home I have been baking biscuits faithfully every weekend. I made some great chocolate chip ones and some nice ginger drops, but I got lazy and stopped documenting them. Today, I was asked to make macaroons and I knew this was going to be a spectacular failure so I photographed it. They turned out very thin, but okay after all!

Chocolate Berry Biscuits.
(Hullaballoos, I'm going to call them, because it's way more exciting.)

This is my last Adventures in Baking post for awhile, I think. It's been a really nice four weeks, so it makes it an even bigger shame that I burned the first batch of these biscuits. Oh, well.

Now we"re getting somewhere!Collapse )

Today, I made Monte Carlos. They tasted OK. But they didn't really turn out the way they were supposed to!

You know, there"s smoking in heaven.Collapse )

I made another batch of biscuits. These are remarkably less interesting than the Honey Jumbles; they were Mum and Dad's request, so oh well. Haven't tried them yet.

I can't remember what they were called so I'm calling them BISCUITS OF OATY CARROTY GOODNESS.

They"re not pink, damnit.Collapse )

Every so often I get a bee in my bonnet about baking; I decide that I'm going to bake something wonderful that will taste like ambrosia. It hasn't ever yielded something that good, but things do tend to work out well and pink. Yes, pink, all my baking turns out pink. Baking + pink food dye = superhappyfuntimes.

So here are my efforts at making Honey Jumbles.
