Thank you for reading

Boys-a-dear! In the last 24 hour hours my blog has, (much to my surprise), had more traffic than ever before. Who knew so many people love Scandinavia like I do? Interestingly one of the top searches driving traffic to my page was named ‘nordicana moans’. I’m not sure what reveals more about my predominantly British readership – the desire for a good old moan or that search engines led wanton readers to me. Either way, I am delighted you stumbled across my blog – whether you intended to or not! I hope you weren’t too disappointed with what you found and I hope you’ll stick around!

Now is as good a time as any to thank you all for reading and interacting with me since I started my blog last year. Whether you followed way back in the beginning or you joined us just yesterday I am so glad that you did! I hope you enjoy what you read and I would love to hear more from you. After all, blogging is a two-way street and I’d really like to know what kind of stuff you are interested in – or not, as the case may be! I’ve had an idea for a project I would like to work on over the next year but it’s really dependent on a little a lot help from my friends. If you’re intrigued then please do follow / subscribe and comment to let me know you’re in!

I wanted this post to be about sharing a recipe I discovered for Chocolate Chia Cookies I came across the other day. Now don’t they just sound lovely? It was going to be all arty farty pictures and everything. I went out the other day and even bought something called ‘buckwheat flour’ especially. Well I am very sorry but out of a recipe that was meant to make 10 I now have about 30 dense misshaped mounds of nut-rich, taste-poor muck. And because buckwheat flour is expensive – even though it seems to taste of nothing – I am going to eat them because a) I don’t like waste and b) they are too dear to throw away. I suspect I’m also going to have to up my exercise intake due to all the nuts in said muck burgers so if you see a girl power walking through a London park eating what looks like a little patty of dog mess don’t be alarmed, it’s probably me.

Boggin'.  If you don't know what boggin' means, the first thing that springs to mind is probably about right.

So it seems I’ve given you a big fat nada with this post and how apt I found the picture below which I took in a shop on Brick Lane that appears geared towards people with too much money and too little sense. I promise my next post will be more interesting! In the meantime, thank you for sticking with me through the good and the muck!xx

Don't worry mama, I didn't buy it!  ;)

Don’t worry mama, I didn’t buy it! πŸ˜‰

(Incidentally, if anyone knows of a good use for buckwheat flour and chia seeds please send it my way so I can use this stuff up!)

      How do you make the oatmeal Deanna? I haven’t tried that before but it sounds good! I daren’t register for Pinterest, I’m afraid I’d get nothing done flicking through all those stylish pictures!xx

        I would have to send you a recipe, but you basically mix oats, the chia seeds, milk and usually fruit and let it set overnight. Then it’s ready to grab and eat in the morning. I hate to say it, but Pinterest is a great resource.
