I've decided to leave Livejournal. I'm over on Facebook as Helen Schiffer, but I'm not on Dreamwidth.
It seems a shame to leave after all this time, but the time has now come.
Younger son asked me what would win in a fight- a Balrog or Middle Earth dragon. I'm not sure - it sounds fairly evenly matched to me.
Threre's a 2 hour Johann Strauss mix running on Youtube, the Christmas cake is in the oven and I've just mixed the flour, yeast and milk for this year's Dresdener Christstollen.
What can possibly go wrong?
Oh and in other news no 1 son (now 14) has just come over and said "Oh what's Livejournal- I've never heard of it?!"
Children these days...
My husband has discovered the perfect way to make briquettes from old newspapers.
1 Buy a briquette maker
2 Make the children do it...
It's amazing just how much no1 son can get done with a plaster cast on his wrist!
I've just spent 3 hours at a waterpark with the boys and now I'm ready for bed. Pity about the ironing...
Last night I survived a sleepover party involving half a dozen extra boys... but in better news today I got the Plaetzchen done.
I'm wondering what is making a worse noise- the washer or the dryer....
Stollen not incinerated. It's probably still raw in the middle....
No news on the pudding and cake front yet. Still cooking.
