#KellsWritingChallenge Day 3 – Chocolate cake

Yesterday there should have been a post using the prompt “chocolate cake”. Yesterday was not a day conducive to writing, let alone writing about chocolate cake.

Happy New Year – 2013 in review

I don’t approve of New Years resolutions, they’re silly things decided at an arbitrary time for dubious reasons and doomed to be forgotten completely 2 weeks later. So I don’t make them. Except when I do. And usually not on New Years Day. We might come back to that later. 2013 has not been a […]
