Hey all, a bit of a different type of post today. I’m going to be talking about distractions. More specifically the distractions that I really like to use. Not necessarily to prevent or suppress my OCD tendencies, as they tend to integrate with everything I do. They’re more there to help boost my mood and take my mind off of things in some respects. I had realised that earlier in the year I had been really isolating myself and just sitting on the sofa night after night feeling awful and upset about everything, however this sudden spark of love for baking/cooking has really made a difference. It gives me something to plan, think about and research most nights plus it’s just plain fun! I tend to help cook tea almost every night, so that helps keep my mind off of things and gives me a little mood boost, that I quite often need. I’m actually cooking tea right this moment whilst writing this (probably not the best of ideas) Tonight we’re having chilli con-carne and I don’t seem to be burning anything. Success!
So over the past few months I’ve been starting to bake a lot more and I’ve found it’s a really fun thing to do, especially with others. I think I’ve established an addiction to watching cooking and baking videos on YouTube. I literally can go hours at a time just watching baking tutorials ect…slightly obsessed! So far I’ve made:
• Ferrero Rocher cupcakes
• White chocolate Oreo stuffed cookies
(With the help of a trusty friend)
• Syrup sponge
I’m planning on doing this awesome sheep cupcake sometime.
I highly recommend trying out baking sometime, it’s a really is a fun hobby to have. Plus you get to eat and share what you’ve made, so bonus! I think you can tell I’ve become crazed over baking because I got excited over receiving some really pretty measuring cups. What normal teenager gets excited over that. Me.
Well I hope you’ve enjoyed this slightly different post and let me know if you too try baking! : )
