It’s my birthday. I’m going to be the cliché and say that the years really do pass faster as I’m getting older. 35, but don’t really feel it. My boss had to check the employment records yesterday to see if the birthday list in our break room was correct – so I guess I don’t… Continue reading 35

Gingerbread cookies

Usually decorated with icing, but at my Mum’s cousin’s funeral – she got the idea to do them with coarse salt. Insanely yummy.

So far, about the only thing I have done with success (out of the three things I am signed up for that happens in November, as mentioned in an earlier blog post) is Nanowrimo. I’m a rebel this year.
