Cakes, bakes and, oddly, owls

I swear that if I remain this sedentary for much longer I may need to buy a new wardrobe of larger clothes… today me and younger son baked a rather nice chocolate cake which came out of the oven just after 11 am, perfect timing for a mid morning taste test, and because it was so scrumptious we then had a second slice at lunch.  We also baked quiches (broccoli, feta and olive) which strangely we didn’t feel the urge to taste test ahead of meal time!

All that baking meant a lot of standing so I dutifully retired back to the sofa after lunch and researched poetry magazines to submit my work to.  There are loads!  The National Poetry Library has a comprehensive list from which I decided to start with online magazine ‘Algebra of Owls’ because it has such a great name.  I have now submitted three poems; At the Races, Fragmented and Frozen Time.

  1. Enjoy! It’s really nice that your son join you in cooking. It seems that he’s on mid-term holiday.

      Yes, my younger son is on holiday this week and my older son next week. They both like baking cakes.

    Good for you! And how can you go wrong with a magazine name like that?
