My Mama!

Gentle reader,

Remember how I told you in my last post that I was writing an article for JustB about my Ma? Well, it’s been published now, and you can read it here!  

I’m super stoked; I’ll be honest, I’m so excited to show off my Ma in public because she’s pretty amazing. It was harder to write than I thought though. Firstly, I hadn’t written to a word limit since college, and because there are SO many things I could have shared about her that it was hard to chose just the right ones and weave them together. But, I’m pretty pleased with the result and – most importantly – Mama loved it too. ^_~

Ma and Me at GoMA in Brisbane. Look how cute she is! Like a button.

Hopefully I’ll get to write more for JustB, because they’re properly fantastic. You should definitely go and show them some love.

What do you have planned for Mother’s Day?

 

Putting Pen To Paper

Gentle reader,

I’ve been pondering posts I can do that don’t require a camera, and Robbie over at Knitxcore must have unwittingly read my mind, because he posted this handwriting meme which seemed like a fun thing to do. So, here ’tis!

Green pen!
1. What is your name
2. Blog URL
3. Write: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
4. Favorite quote
5. Favorite song (at the moment)
6. Favorite band/singers (at the moment)
7. Say anything you want
8. Tag 3-5 bloggers

I’ve always been really fussy about my handwriting, which is not to say this is terribly neat, but I can’t write crazy fast. The moment I try to write something quickly, it just explodes into an incomprehensible mess. It made taking notes at school and college a bit of a production, I’ll tell you that much.

Here are the peeps I tagged; go check ’em out, they’re lovely:

Tony at BonitoClub
Katie & Reuben at House of Humble
Stacey at Veggie Mama
Sian at Sian Lile Makes
Laura at Kit & Nancy 

I occasionally love to write letters or notecards, there’s something special about handwritten notes. Do you like your handwriting? Do you write with pen and paper very often? If you do this meme, comment with a linkie!
