I rocked out the egg-beater the other night, for another try at meringues. I went all chocolate-y this time, making a cocoa meringue, with chocolate chips.
And damn, they were fine. Crispy and crunchy on the outside, but chewy and chocolate-y on the inside. Matt even said 'wow' when he ate one.
9/10 - near perfect.

I have been studying a little bit in the past few years - working towards my Masters at a snail's pace. I am not even close. And after a rethink, I have decided to pause the Masters, and instead sit my Membership exam in Feline Medicine. A small step in the direction towards becoming a cat vet.
The exam is in June next year. There are no lectures or notes, just the exam. You basically have to know pretty much everything about cat stuff. I started the actual study a couple of weeks ago. It's awesome. Meow.

We have had some pretty crazy weather-times around here - the whole of NZ in fact. On Wednesday the supermarkets all sold out of bread, in preparation for a few days of hunkering down. We hunkered. It rained. It blew. It snowed. It rained. It rained. It blew.
On Friday we woke to snow, and a fallen tree (above).
Yesterday we woke to rain, and sleet, and rain.
This morning we woke to this:
Such a welcome relief.
