#1 One week in

Woke up this morning to find I was out of chocolate. I know that we're two weeks into the new year but writing a blog daily, or even almost daily, was proving difficult. Here we are at the end of the first full week of the year (last Monday was the 31st), feeling optimistic at the prospect of writing a weekly blog and yet pessimistic about the unforgivable lack of chocolate in the house.

At 9am on a Saturday, you might wonder how much of an issue this was but after last night, arguably last week and though I really shouldn't ever say this, the last 28 years (what? I like chocolate...), it was definitely time for some. Fortunately I had cocoa powder. 

You can make a brownie in a couple of minutes by mixing cocoa, sugar, flour and water in a mug in roughly equal proportions and nuking it for like half a minute, then maybe a bit more depending on your microwave. It's not the best brownie in the world but then breakfast isn't the most important meal of the day. On the other hand, if you think that it is and you'd like to follow a recipe to make sure that your beloved micro-brownie is the same as everyone else's, you can click mhyaa.

As this first weekly post replaces the daily ones I wrote earlier, here's some other stuff you might have missed:

- you can multi-task by walking and eating at the same time
- there's a girl in Ireland whose dad works for KPMG
- there are some restaurants and pipes on Edgeware Road or something.
- some people complained about losing child benefits

I needed to save these images somewhere to use as links.

These too.

Lastly, these.

Oh, and this.

Plus some more.
