Ooooo.. you know that kind of angry where you want to hit your computer screen? I’ve stayed away from the computer this weekend because I’ve been busy. Missing my blog and followers, I sat down at my computer to catch up with a cup of tea. 

200 new comments?! YAY. Something must have gone viral. I’m so excited. Oh. No. Wait. Pretty much all spam.

The spammers of the world must have had some kind of meeting this weekend and decided my blog was the target. Miss Messy? She looks like she needs a new pair of fake Nike Airs as well as some Viagra.

Who actually clicks on the links? Yeh sure my little food blog wants to know all about how you solved your acne in broken English. Grrr. Go away. 

Anyway, looks like I  need a captcha now. Can anyone recommend a good plug in for word press?

I needed a nice treat to calm me down. Cookies! Obviously cookies! Ginger is meant to be calming isn’t it? Well the sugar certainly made me happy.

These were yummy. Crunchy on the outside, chewy in the middle. Subtly spiced and perfect with a cup of tea. I’m taking a breather, cursing the spammers and inhaling cookies. Perfect Sunday. I also just hit 300 likes on Facebook. Yay. Go over and visit. You know you want to! 

Hope you all had a lovely weekend.

    Spammers are so annoying…I’m not surprised you were peeved! At least you have some fabulous cookies to make up for it and 300 likes on Facebook is fab! Love your photos too and I could quite easily eat probably all of your cookies! :-)

    These sound so good. I’d make them if I wasn’t leaving for vacation tomorrow! I don’t know about captcha, but I know that there is the Askmit widget for wordpress witch blocks spam comments. I use it on my blog and it works really well. I don’t self host, but I’m pretty sure there’s a version for hosted blogs.
