    This is fabulous…in fact, I feel like I penned the answers to a lot of these. I don’t have a gazillion pairs of shoes…anymore, and am ever impressed that so many of your are red!

    1. theonlycin says:

      The shoes are like a journal of places I’ve been, things I’ve seen πŸ™‚ Thanks for reading suzicate.

  3. Hi Cindy, would you mind if I used this for a post of my own?

    Thank God! Someone else besides my mother (post mortem) and me forgets birthdays! I have them ALL in my Outlook reminder system that chimes reminders. I have them ALL recorded in an appointment book cum diary-for-being-in-the-thick-of-thin-things. When Outlook tinkles its demand for acknowledgment, I shudder over ‘what the sam hill has gone wrong with the computer now’!

    How is it that the one birthday that was not assigned a chime was the one for whom I had the pot luck dinner? Okay, it was a month late!

    Thank God for loving friends with a secret desire to protect eccentrics.

    I am going to revel in your blog, Cin! Many thanks. – Amy

    I called my sister today to with here happy birthday and it was yesterday! I do have a little bit of an excuse, Only found out about here about 15 or so years ago, so I didn’t grow up with her or anything. But still… it was very embarrassing. :-]

    Hi Cindy!
    I just stopped by your blog and was amazed. I think we have some things in common because I love writing, too. I mean, my blog is about food and recipe, but I write a lot (novels, mostly) in my spare time (what? Do I have time to spare? Mmm…), though I wouldn’t dare post them on my blog. I’m too scared! Anyway, I love your work.
    P.S. This post is superb!

    Hi Cin!!!! Nice to read your blogs here.

  12. That was so very interesting. I love to hear that I am not the ony one who forgots family birthdays. This year at Christmas, my mother gave me a list of them all. I put it on the refridgerator and I’m sure I have probably already missed one or two!

    1. theonlycin says:

      I think my family have just given up on me πŸ™‚
      Thanks for the visit.

    please can you give me the name of the Chinese store with wonton wrappers???

    1. theonlycin says:

      The Chinese supermarket has closed, but there is another one in the Carreira Centre – just a block up from the Brightwater Commons.

  17. Grieta says:

    thanks very much for this. I saw Donna Hay uses the wonton wrappers in stead of pasta sheets to make ravioli, among other things. Definately something to try.
