sherbet cupcakes? YUM!!!

I know! sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? I mean, who doesn't like cupcakes, right? and cupcakes with a special fizz?? MMMMM-mmmmmm.

Here's a link to the blog where you'll find a delish (and easy peasy) recipe for fizzy yummy cupcakes that your kids will love making (and eating).

Puddles and Gumboots

Enjoy! :)

I'm grateful for....

Once again, I've missed Maxabellas' grateful post, but I'm grateful anyway, for friends and family, who love me, who have been in constant touch to see how I am, for those readers who have stayed even though my blog has been so neglected.

I don't know how I got so lucky, but I'm very very thankful.

When things are bad, I shut down.

Do you do that?

I take the phone off the hook, I don't go out, I don't speak.

It isn't because I have nothing to say. It's because the things I would say are too big. They might hurt people. They might hurt me.

Right now, I have a lot of heavy stuff going on in my life. I may blog about it but if I do, I'll be guest posting somewhere anonymously.

In the meantime, I'm finding it really hard to talk about light stuff - which is why my blog has been so neglected.

I hope you'll stick with me.

This will all be over one day.

now where did she hear that?

The Princess brought home Weston the Wombat yesterday.
This is a ploy used by Year 1 teachers at her school, to encourage the kids to write. Weston is a stuffed toy, and he stays with each child for two nights, and he has a Book of Adventures, where the kids have to write what Weston did while at their house.

So of course, he had to come to karate with us tonight. And the Princess explained the rules.

"Weston, you have to be very quiet at karate, and no calling out to me, or you'll bugger my concentration."
