Chocolate Chip Cookies

Do you have a “flow” activity, that helps you to disconnect from the drudgery of everyday life and get caught up doing something fun?

Today my flow activity was….Baking!!

I decided to make Tollhouse cookies!!  It was my first attempt, but they turned out pretty darn good!!

I followed this recipe, but added chopped and whole hazelnuts and crushed walnuts.  Here are the results!!

and here’s how I enjoyed the splendour of my work…

Baking Therapy – Afternoon Scones

There is nothing more delightful on a Sunday afternoon then an impromptu tea party!!  This afternoon I decided to bake some scones, following this recipe.
They turned out to be delicious, especially with a very large serve of jam and cream.
Baking is far more fun when you have someone to share it with.  Today I invited a friend over for a good cup of tea, some gossip and scones!!
In a study by Diener and Seligman (2002), groups of happy people and unhappy people were compared. The group of happy people were showed to have good social relations, including socialising regularly and having strong social relationships.
Want to be more happy?  Start with a good catch up with a friend!!
Can Daleks be happy too!?
