Apple and Oats.

Baking alone can be hard when you have a sweet tooth. Most recipes cater for a few people, and I find that just having junk food in the house is liable to being eaten in one go. Even if you do try to decrease the recipe size, it's often difficult to get just right. 
I discovered this recipe on a recent internet trawl, which I tried out tonight. It was so delicious that I had to share!

Learning to knit.

"The motion of knitting isn't all that different from the motion of plugging away at your smartphone all day. Except knitting promotes focus, and the phone promotes distraction."  
Do you know how to knit?
When I first landed in France, I knew the basic stitches. I'll be leaving at the end of December with a whole repertoire up my sleeve (literally).
Knitting has kept me sane and helped me pass ALOT of time over the past twelve months. It's relaxing and can be done almost anywhere, plus you finish with something really cool that you have the satisfaction of telling everyone you made yourself out of it.
My grandmother taught me the basics and here's a site I found really helpful in exploring different cabling techniques.


What's your favourite type of knitting?
