This week I’d love to give a shout out to my mum. For my birthday last week she made me this fabulous eeep cake, although she was a little upset that the glasses ended up looking a tad Dame Edna-ish.

My kids didn’t mind; they gobbled up most of the blue fondant icing and ignored the cake inside.

Thanks Mum! (Even if my kids did have blue pee for a few days.)

    Thank you Damien and Jane, she is a star.

    But Damien, if she bought a cake then it would be missing that one important ingredient……

    No, not love, overwhelming frustration!! (That fondant has a mind of its own) LOL

    Thank you Carmelita. Damien and Catharine are doing a great job with the podcasts too. Be sure to catch the next episode.

    Good on you for working on your PhD! I’d love to do more study but haven’t quite gotten around to it….
