Thanks everyone for all the rockin' comments lately, whether it be New York tips, computer expertise or book-related kindness. Now here, have a Mutant Cookie!
When I walked through the door after work on Monday I was smacked in the gob by a wonderfully melty chocolate smell – Gareth had been baking! What a gem. He said he didn't space the cookies out on the tray so they turned into a conjoined megacookie (cf my megaAnzacs of 2005!) but they were heavenly. Crunchy on the outside, chewy in the middle; just the way I likes 'em.
Anyway… thanks again everyone for your supreme helpfulness. Now I've got to blast the cobwebs off this blog. I was running around like a mad chook last week with New Job Freakouts and deadline angst but I'm determined this one is going to be Calm The Hell Down Week. Hope you have a goodun, too.
