It’s been a couple of days since I posted, and quite a lot has happened in my life. I successfully moved to Vietnam and I scored my first job as a teacher of English.

I may (okay, I most definitely do) still have a bit of a thing for David Tennant.

Sometimes I get one of these crazy ideas of eating healthy and I say goodbye to chocolate (and everything else that is good in this world). Fortunately that never lasts good and I’m back to baking chocolately, caramelly, brown buttery treats within a week.

That being said, I do enjoy something slightly healthier from time to time. There are oats in these cookies, so they have to be healthier, right? Please, tell me I’m right. Continue reading
