These days this journal is friends-only for a number of reasons.

I mostly talk about babies, boobs, baking and bacteriology.

If you would like to read please friend me!  I usually friend back, provided I think we have something in common.

Thanks!  :)

Writer's Block: Freaky Friday

If you could become a member of the opposite sex for just one day, what would you do?

Pee standing up.

Cookies recipe

Technically these are lactation cookies, designed to help mothers' milk supply, but they are damned tasty and generally fairly healthy, containing relatively low sugar and butter, and lots of nutritious oats, fruit and flaxseed! There are numerous recipes online for these but all in US measurements, and I don't own a measuring cup so I translated it to metric weights and tested. Two batches have been made so far - the first was a little too sweet for my tastes so I reduced the sugar and I really like the result!

1 tbsp flaxseed meal
2 tbsp water
112g butter
125g demerara sugar
1 egg
few drops vanilla extract
125g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp brewers yeast (I've been using slow action baking yeast)
135g rolled oats
100g raisins (or choc chips)
Makes about 24.

Mix the water and flaxseed meal and put aside

Cream the butter and sugar, beat in the egg.

Add the flaxseed meal mix and vanilla extract, beat.

Add dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Roll into balls the size of golf balls and flatten slightly. Bake on a greased tray for 10-15 mins at 180oC until lightly golden.

Keep out of reach of husband.

Writer's Block: Teenage dream

If you arrived at your front door and saw your first love standing there, what would you do or say?
I don't think I'd recognise him, since all I can remember was he had long eyelases, dark hair, was called Matthew and was in my class when I was 6 years old. He left my school and was going to come back when we were 21 to marry me, but since that never happened I guess he's no longer in love with me!

Can anyone recommend to me a Livejournal app for Android? I was using LJ Beetle but it's randomly died for me and reinstalling doesn't work. :/

Haircut time!

I need a haircut, and I'm sorely tempted to get it cut quite short. I always intended to chop it all off after I got married, but never got round to it and once more my hair has become long, boring and split-ended.

Long hair
Less frequent washing and cutting
Husband prefers

OMG grabby baby hands HURT!
I do nothing other than tie it back these days

Short hair
Easy to look after
No more hair-pulling
Fits under a cycle helmet/theatre wig more easily

Needs more washing (I found short hair needed a wash every day)
Needs cutting more frequently or risk looking rubbish as layers grow out

Some photosCollapse )


Long and luscious
Short and sassy
Mid-length compromise
Something else?


I'm posting this from my new phone! Typing is kind of ininteresting. I'm going to have to get Used to this keypad.
