I’m so glad the sitcom joke happened because I can just draw life from the sitcom au of the show. John is literally a jealous boyfriend and his catchphrase is “were you flirting with Sherlock Holmes?” and Sherlock is brilliant but legitimately incredibly clumsy and every episode ends with John…

I’ve never written a sherlock fanfic in my life but this au is just too good to pass up.

[the Sherlock opening music plays but this is sitcom!lock so it’s just a poppy, overly enhanced electric baseline] 

[sitcom!Sherlock burst through the door, wearing only booty-shorts and suspenders]

[whistles from the audience] 

Sherlock: Another day, another gay club saved from Moriarty’s evil clutches.  

[Exasperated sitcom!John follows, wearing his old army uniform]

John: I understand your disguise, but why did I have to wear this?

Sherlock: As always you see but do not observe… just how good your ass looks in those trousers! 

[audience whoops and hollers]

John: [wraps arms around Sherlock] Not as good as your ass looked on that stage.  Where’d you learn those exotic dance moves? 

Sherlock: You know my methods, John.    

[audience members scream and faint as they go in for a kiss]

[Suddenly, Neighbor!Jim enters]    

Jim: Hello neighbors. [looks at the camera] Did you miss me?

[audience laughs] 

Sherlock: Ahhhh, Jim from next door.  How’ve you been? 

Jim: Oh, you know.  Just [looks at the camera again] stayin’ alive.

[audience laughs]

Jim: [stares at Sherlock’s outfit] Oh my, Sherlock!  You look hot enough to burn someone’s heart out. 

Sherlock: [laughs] Ohhh, you! 

John: [getting all jealous] Are you flirting with Sherlock Holmes?

Jim: [laughs] Of course not. [looks at the camera] I’m Moriarty 

John: What was that?

Sherlock: What did you say?

Jim: Um…Could I borrow some more uh ya tea? 

[Mrs. Hudson enters] 

Mrs. Hudson: Sherlock Holmes!  Have you been youtubing again?  

[everyone laughs as we fade to the commercial break]

Another day, another gay club saved from Moriarty’s evil clutches” is literally a line I thought of when I was typing this. You get it.

I AM HYPERVENTILATING

Dying.

Hey! I love your blog, and absolutely love The National. I think they quite literally saved my life, which sounds cheesy but it's true. I was wondering what you thought of the name Ada? I'm having a girl and I was going to name her that after the song. Do you think that it's a good name?

I think that’s a great name and is actually what I plan to call my daughter if I ever have one haha :)

I already did! She’s three in September.

That is the very store I was in!

haha, what are the odds?

I thought of that very store today but was too busy to look up the name of “that big baking store on the first floor next to John Lewis” and through the magic of tumblr you send me the name of that store having just physically been in the exact store I was thinking of?

the internet is truly a brilliant place.

The internet is brilliant.

Lakeland is brilliant.

John Lewis is brilliant.

I’ve watched so many episodes of the Great British Bake Off that I have started baking again. Tonight I made onion quiche for dinner. No soggy bottom!

But beans totally do not work as pie weights, I have to find some proper pie weights for my blind baking. No one here ever…

I’m currently watching the series 2 finale, so I still have a bit to go…  but good to know I’ll get more to watch soon!

ah thank you!!! They do deliver! And when I thought about where I’d like to buy new baking stuff I thought about a store I had been to in a shopping center in London… turns out it was Lakeland, so you hit it on the head! and they do deliver to Switzerland.

The problem with delivery from the UK to Switzerland is usuall that we’re not in the EU, so for most postage we count as “rest of the world” even though we’re smack in the middle of Europe, so I pay the same shipping rates as someone from Australia, which really is not fair.

£7.50 versus £25.00 makes a vast difference especially since the postage usually pushes my orders over the 42£ that I can get over the border without having to pay ridiculous amounts of VAT and customs handling fees. A rule that sometimes would make it cheaper to fly to the UK and pick the stuff up there myself.

That being said, ordering from Lakeland including shipping is still much cheaper than what I’d pay here and they have SO MANY THINGS!!! <3 <3 <3

I looove Lakeland. Full of kitchenware you didn’t know you needed. I was in a store just yesterday, going BUCKET AND SPADE CAKE MOULDS AND SPOONS! BEAUTIFUL BUNDT TINS!

I want it all.

when I’m in London and the weather is bad I do my big shopping day in the Westfield Stratford City shopping centre. There’s a Lakeland in there and I have spent ages in that store without buying anything so far because I can’t really transport the big stuff and also I have to buy reasonable tins that I can use many times because I don’t have the storage space for big stuff that I only use twice. 

I’ve already found 2 things I’ll have to order… let’s see how many more I can justify :-)

That is the very store I was in!

But beans totally do not work as pie weights, I have to find some proper pie weights for my blind baking. No one here ever…

But beans totally do not work as pie weights, I have to find some proper pie weights for my blind baking. No one here ever bothers with blind baking that’s why it’s rather difficult to find proper pie weights but “no more soggy bottoms!” is the way to go,  so at least I have to start…

I’m counting the weeks until the next series! There’s no confirmed air date yet, but it’s always late August.

Also, does Lakeland.co.uk ship to Switzerland (you’re Swiss, right?). I have a decent set of baking beans from there.
