Odds and Ends

My notebook is chock-full of half-written blog posts. They all seem a little bland to me. This post is going to be short and, let’s face it, rather dull, but (and this is important) I’m going to finish it and type it up and post it.

The article I wrote for Australian Catholics has been published (!!!)  If you click here, you can catch a tantalising glimpse of the title, graphic and first paragraph.  The rest, unfortunately, is only available to online subscribers.

If you live in Australia, you might be able to get a copy from your local Catholic church or school.  Failing that, I might see if I can get permission to reprint the article a few months from now.  I’m not really sure how these things work.

I’ve also written an article for Madonna, AC’s sister publication (!!!), but that will just be a re-working of my Mary, Help of Kitchens post and it hasn’t gone to print yet.

My (other) work in progress.  See that bit of purple at the bottom of the shot?  That's my belly...

The twins continue to grow and I am now officially the size of a small W-class tram.  I am coping with all this by waddling everywhere like some oversized toddler and perfecting the art of Phoning It In.

Behold:  Harry’s birthday cake:

dodgy cake with increasingly indecipherable writing

I ran out of writing icing.  Fail.

I think, perhaps, I should rename this post “Odd and End”, because I can’t think of anything more to tell you and my break is almost over and I’m determined to actually finish this post so it doesn’t become lost among my other half-written monstrosities floating around the place.  Incidentally, if there is something particular you would like me to write a post about, please leave me a comment.  I’m feeling a little stuck at the moment.

And now, in the spirit of Phoning It In, I’m going to finish this post right now, without anything witty to round it off and without tying any ends together.

*dial tone*

    That cake is the BEST. Our fourth was born on our third’s birthday. I had made the cake the day before my due date and all the icing seeped in and disappeared. Happy 2nd Birthday, our gift is a new baby brother and an icingless cake!

      Haha! You just made an extra-special cake. Other cakes only have icing on top, but yours has it all the way through! It reminds me of the time I, in my sleep deprived state, made a kinder sandwich with two slices of bread and no filling all wrapped up. Upon opening her lunch, my daughter announced excitedly to her table that her sandwich was “imaginary honey”!. Everybody else was SO jealous. That’s just how good a mum I am…
      I’ve also discovered not to decorate cakes with Smarties or M&Ms ahead of time. They turn whitish grey…
      Thanks for commenting!

    I think you are amazing having time do complete any blog post at the moment. By the way that purple patch isn’t your ‘belly’; it’s your two darlings trying to get into the picture❤️
