1. What made you smile this week? One of the kids I got to watch grow up came back from college this week. We had a really nice game night- Munchkin, his giant game, Scrabble. Will, Toby, and I. We also taught him to make our fried rice, because it is cheap and makes fantastic leftovers.

2. What ingredients make a perfect Saturday? Just my man, these days. :) We turned 26 this week. And we're still not tired of each other!

3. What is the best thing you ever had for dessert? Share the memory or the recipe. Hm... I am a pretty big fan of tiramisu. My best friend taught me that'un.

4. What is your favorite memory of your mom, or your favorite thing about being a mom? My own mother and I are not close, but I love being a mom. It is who I am, at my core. I suppose my favorite part of it is my special gift of being allowed to gather and love and know so many. I gave birth to two, and I get to have them even as adults. They each brought friends into our family, like Will. I love the love. :)

5. What are your plans for the summer (or winter, for those in the southern hemisphere)? I leave next weekend to spend a month with my best friend and her family. Four kids! We'll take them to the coast, and I'll be there for their birthdays. We'll take one or two each weekend and look for new homes for my family, as we'll be moving in August to be nearer to her family.

1. What made you smile this week? Despite the pressure and chaos at work, we got to laugh and joke a bit. And one of the guys – fairly new, and deeply thankful for the help we give him – bought chocolate doughnuts all round.

2. What ingredients make a perfect Saturday? Nice weather – not too hot, not too cold - some time relaxing in the garden, lovely music, something to read, maybe even a bit of writing...

3. What is the best thing you ever had for dessert? Share the memory or the recipe. Oh, definitely the syllabub I mentioned in earky 2018. We've had it once more since then (it is not exactly the most health-conscious of desserts) and it is absolute heaven in a bowl.

I admit that classic old-fashioned baked apple stuffed with sultanas and served with custard isn't that far behind, along with old-fashioned rice pudding made with tinned milk: both of these are comfort food and I suspect the taste is laced with nostalgia, but the sort of nostalgia that does taste sooooo good….

4. What is your favorite memory of your mom, or your favorite thing about being a mom? A barbecue when Sis and I bought our house: she was cooking steaks on the barbie and it started pouring with rain, but she and my eldest brother stayed out with a brollie and kept cooking. They were stewed rather than barbecued, but delicious.

5. What are your plans for the summer (or winter, for those in the southern hemisphere)? Nothing extraordinary, I'm working through my last year of work and any major plans will be for next year.
