It’s been days and I’m still reeling from the weeks of emotional anguish that the last few episode of Doctoroo put me through. And this is in spite of previewing everything a few days early in the interest of journalism. I should have been prepared. We watched it as it aired at my friend’s birthday party in London and when it was done I cried a lot and my poor, long-suffering spouse had to comfort me until I was in a fit enough state to play board games with everyone again.

Also, I baked chocolate, orange, and cardamom biscuits with the intention of using my Dalek biscuit stamp, but sadly, the dough was too soft to stamp out properly so I just did rounds instead. I managed a single, mostly recognisable Dalek. I haven’t been able to bring myself to eat it yet. Maybe tonight.

As for the tea, I dunno, this tea is so massively seasonally-appropriate right now. Warm nutty spice, an almost gingerbreadiness. Chestnut tea just somehow brings wonders to every blend it touches. SO GOOD. I love it with all my heart.


Aww. Those cookies sound like they taste awesome, at least. Cookie stamps (and presses) can be so frustrating. It’s like they’re designed for specific recipes. Very little room for creativity.

Yeah, as much as I was keen on dorky shapes, I’m even more keen on exploring flavours and textures, even if my biscuits are just vague circle-shapes. Mmm, chocolate-orange-cardamom circle-shapes.

(I also made the mistake of promising my coworkers I’d bring in a batch of five-spice gingerbread next week, so I guess that’s where my weekend’s going…)
