This is going to be rambley so I'll start with a little music. I heard this song on the radio a couple of weeks ago and it is so perfect for chillaxin, as they say in France. The people commenting saying they're crying listening need to calm down a bit, but it is boss nonetheless.
I am still without a repaired phone, presumably because the insurance company is just sitting around thinking people don't want their phones back until 2015, and since I use my phone to take blog photos, I am unable to blog what I usually blog about! Consequently, not being able to blog has meant I'm not even on my laptop as much so I've barely been catching up on blog reading. How am I supposed to knOW WHAT THE ~IN~ THING FROM ZARA IS THIS MONTH?!
I semi-kid. Being apart from my usual technology this much has actually been nice. I now have a great excuse to ignore calls that I usually can't be bothered answering, I don't have the ten spam emails a day from my university pushed to phone and I've been spending a lot more time with our oven. Cake, roast chicken, cinnamon rolls - you name it, I've probably not made it. But I've made a lot of batches of cinnamon rolls because I keep doing stupid things like forgetting important ingredients! (The Goddamn egg!!)
I'm going to attempt lotus seed mooncake with egg yolks next because it's coming up to the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, or as I call it, "Mooncake Day". For the non-Chinese, I couldn't even tell you what the festival actually celebrates but I can tell you that these mooncakes are so delicious, especially the egg bit. They're like £20+(!!?) for a box of four though, so I'd recommend making friends with someone Chinese and you might get to try some.
