It’s midway through December already and I never finished my NO-vember thing. Well that’s my prerogative I guess. The only other principle I’d add at this point is one I learned from Kate N at church the other day, who said when she was doing MTS she instituted a rule of never agreeing to anything immediately. She always said she had to go home and check her diary, allowing her the time and space to weigh up whether or not she was able or wanted to do what she’d been asked to do. She said if someone was pressuring her for an immediate response because they themselves were disorganised, then it wasn’t her problem. And making it a blanket rule meant she avoided any guilt at saying yes or no to things on the spot. Everything was pending. I think this is a good rule and might try and institute it myself.

Excited to be starting work on editing a book. Also excited that it’s sunny and I can read in my hangout pod thing. Also bemused that it’s 9 degrees and feels pleasant.
Not a triplet but a…twentytwoplet? I think I underestimated this piece.
So the layers aren’t even, and there should be nine. But seven layers taste just as good! And it means I just need to make it another time to practise :)
New post at The Bexfiles (link in bio). Also, the post is not about Paris but I rather like this photo of stairs at the Arc de Triomphe.
It’s an exciting day. We’ve not had a functional stove since before Christmas. Our valiant camping hot plate did its best but now we have this marvellous induction cooktop and I can’t believe how fast a pot of water boils on it. Also so grateful to know a retired sparky to install it and refuse to accept payment :)
