All stuff Posted

In the Christmas preparation saga, I have posted out all the things I should have posted. so if you expecting anything from me, you should have it soonish, depending on the postal system between here and there. Unless I don't think you're expecting anything, in which case you won't get it.

After I came back from the post office, the Kiddos started making sweets. "We don't need any help from you", they told me.

Well, there was the mix up over the weight of icing sugar needed - if you don't know how much one bowl weighs, then put a different one on the scales, and weigh into that.

Then there were problems with the powdered egg-white mix. If one sachet makes the equivalent of two eggs worth, how do you get the equivalent of half an eggs worth? (Hint, the sachet needed 60ml of warm water and the recipe says that half an egg-white is about three teaspoons. There are 5ml in a teaspoon. Thus the written sources are in agreement over volume.)

The Kiddos did clean up. But I seem to be sticking to the floor, the fridge door, and anything else I touch. Just as well, cleaning the kitchen is still on my list of stuff-to-do.

Penny, thank you SO MUCH for the great package! I like the little storage canisters but my favourite part is the surprise ball of KidSilk Haze - a colour I would not have thought, looking at it in a store, I'd love so much. I can't get enough of it! Thanks again and Happy New Year.
