Or as my eldest said "you is old".
I started to compile a '38 things' list, but got up to about point 5 and even bored myself.
How much naval-gazing can one stand ? Even when one's favourite topic is oneself, and a personal blog in itself is vanity personified ?
And besides, you'd all be repelled to read 38 deep dark secrets about me. It's best I remain aloof. People that really know me ... well, most try to run far far away. All that vanity, all that me-ness ... it's disgusting. No wonder my friends all drink....
Hey, but i'm honest .. always honest ;)
So instead, a couple of gifts for the readers:
The best cake I have ever made:
( click on link for recipe - it is YUMMY ! )
The best birthday I ever had was my 13th and I asked for a pale pink heart-shaped cake from the Woman's Weekly Birthday Cake book. I was allowed to invite two girlfriends over and choose the meal ( a hot oil fondue - yummm ! - and still so exotic for my small-town girlfriends - we were sooo cosmopolitan ! ).
I also wore a brand new jumper ( sweater ) that was pale pink with satin hearts patched onto it.
It came from a proper clothing *boutique* and NOT from Fosseys. It was a great birthday :)
How to get your icon ( called a favicon, i've learned ! ) in your http:// header and elsewhere:
A few other things:
Seeing a Speech Therapist ( thank God we got private health insurance - not cheap, but fabulous so far. I have a Speechie reader and i'll have to ask if she knows him - he's apparently got a really good rep. )
First football game:
My new pram finally arrived and we've been getting in some serious walking. So much in fact, i've lost 3kilos in like, a week ! And before that - nothing since the initial child-expulsion ( the quickest, yet most painful way I know to lose 10kgs stat. )
What else ?
I can't remember, i'm sure there was more.
Isn't there always ?
