Ever have one of those days?

You know those days? When you’re a rainy day person and you wake up to raindrops on roses, but by the time you’ve boiled the kettle, the sun is out? When you really want the day off, but you have deadlines and you can’t take the day off, even though it’s Sunday? When the things you like doing don’t seem to be going right? When someone wopped up the price on the jelly mould you were looking at on eBay? When you know it’s just a mood, but it still feels a bit lousy?

Yes, that.

Still…

When you're having a bad day, the look on your pup's face can make you laugh.

This was actually the Scot last night. He looked so deadly serious. But also very handsome in his new collar!

When you're having a bad day, jelly cupcakes help!

These are dead easy. The recipe makes about four cupcakes. Just mix 1 1/4 cup gluten free self raising flour, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup soy milk, 1/3 cup sunflower oil and an 85g packet of your chosen jelly crystals. Mix well, pour into cupcake wrappers and place in a 180 degree oven. Once they’re done, whip up a little margarine with icing sugar, a splash of orange water and orange zest. “Edible ball bearings” optional. But so pretty.

When having a bad day, think of what MacGyver would do.

And now it’s dinner time. Don’t you love my local spice merchant? We’re having chicken.
