Happy Birthday, dear [livejournal.com profile] disthrainsdotte! I hope you are having a wonderful time!

Here, have some virtual cookies - no calories, so you can help yourself!

Also, a hand-made greeting card with well-wishes (although slightly crooked ones;)).

Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] solanpolarn! May you have fun, friends and chocolate on your special day!

Here are some home-made profiterols for you:

Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] sammydragoncat! I hope you had a wonderful day, with good food, good friends and lots of fun!

Here, have some baby dragon cookies! Not mine, but should I even find the right cutter, I'd give them a try:

So, I made a small chocolate cake for a colleague, who is a very nice young woman (half my age, actually), to celebrate the fact that she's successfully faced a complicated (work-related) situation. I hope she'll like it. As she's allergic to lactose, I had to make a cake that had no dairy products in it and still tastes good.

Here it is, waiting in its box to be taken to school tomorrow:

On a side note: where is everyone? Granted, I mostly keep this journal to follow the events of my own life - and those of my online friends - but where have said friends gone? In these days Linda is the only one still around. :(

Also, I began to post my Tolkien fic to AO3. Very few people over there seem to be interested in Tolkienfic anymore. And even those seem to be completely uninterested in the stories I personally think are my best ones. Like "The Face of the Enemy", "The Last Stand" or the Halabor-related ones. Are people only interested in formulaic fic in these days?

I find that the most grateful readers are still in the Torchwood fandom. Go figure. They even comment in every leap year, unlike the others.

May it be a better year than the previous one was, to us all. Over here, we'll still have 2016 for another half an hour or so, but I didn't want to be late.

On other news, I'm still sick like a dog, though getting better, very, very slowly. In the afternoon I had enough of my own misery and decided to bake a small cake: a sponge cake, with Bourbon vanilla pudding and pineapple jelly filling, to make Mum happy. I was very relieved that it turned out just fine - I had such bad luck with baking lately. Icing will be done tomorrow (= next year, hehehe), when I'll, hopefully, post a very pretty picture of it (unless I screw up the icing).

As tradition demands, we'll eat sausages at midnight and drink alcohol free champagne, just because it tastes better, IMO, and then I'll watch "Fresse 2016", Oliver Kalkofe's summary of the previous year. I'm sure he'll be merciless with 2016, and it will be hilariously funny as always.

So, my dear friends all over the globe, I wish you all a happy New Year, health and peace and goodwill of Men - okay, that one is for Christmas, but one can't wish for it often enough, right?

So, my darlings, the Christmas cards are on their way to those who've checked back with potential address changes. Five more are waiting for address check, so if you folks [livejournal.com profile] artemis10002000, [livejournal.com profile] ideealisme, [livejournal.com profile] espresso_addict and [livejournal.com profile] red_day_dawning, not to mention [livejournal.com profile] avon7 could PM me, I would be grateful. As for the others, can you tell me when they arrive? I would like to know that postal service didn't eat them. Thanks.
wiseheart: (Uhura_tribble)
I promised every single one of you a hand-stitched Christmas card. I intend to keep my promise, even though the cards might arrive late, due to the insanely stressful month.

In case any of you had a change of address, please tell me the new one. Answers to this entry will be screened, so no-one else will be able to sniff out your address. *g*

Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] jenn_calaelen!

Here, have some delicious cake:

Also in loving rememberance of my beloved grandfather who would be 120 years old today. We were almost exactly 60 years apart, and this is the year when I'd be half his age.

My virtual birthday party was very nice: 650 comments on 6 pages, almost all of them meaningful and most of them great fun. Considering how very few people participated, I'd call that a success. I had a wonderful time with my virtual guests - see you all next time, hopefully, and you have a Christmas wish free. This year embroidered cards are in the offer. Check out the previous post (and hopefully some future posts) and make your choice.

Welcome to my annual (virtual) birthday party! I'll be turning 60 on October 9, which is a round number, meaning, that a whole new decade of my life will start. Imagine that! Where has all the time gone when I was not watching?

In any case, let's have fun! The goal is, as always, to create as many collapsing threads on as many pages as possible. I'll kick up the first few topics, just to start the ball rolling, but basically it's up to you what we'll be talking about. So far, we always had fascinating topics. Photos of cakes and cookies and flowers and kittens and whatever you want to post are also welcome.

Since LJ chose to crash our party 3 years ago, I'll save the whole thing to Dreamwidth on a daily basis. Last time it happened it took us an ungodly amount of effort to recreate the lost comments, and even so, we didn't manage to get everything back.

Again, welcome and let's have fun! God knows we all deserve it. The party closes at midninght on October 9, sharp, as always. Let's use the time we have well! Last year we had almost 900 comments, most of them in various threads of lovely discussions - let's hope we'll going to have at least as much fun and enjoyment again!

And a Hobbit-style birthday gift for Merlin fans: I've finally updated "Magic Mirror"!
Chapter 6 - Leontes in Wonderland has been posted to FF.Net. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] ma2d2!

Happy belated birthday, dear [livejournal.com profile] red_day_dawning! I hope you had a fantastic day, with good food, good friends and lots of presents that you actually liked.

Here, have some petits-fours:

Not mine, obviously - they don't look this pretty. *g*

After a somewhat adventurous journey (for some reason the train stood for half an hour somewhere in the prairie, with repeated promises that we'll continue "soon") we arrived in St Pölten at half past ten.

Our hotel is a nice, comfortable place about 200 metres from the railway station, and the historic town centre is about thrice as far in the opposite direction. Ideally situated - I was really lucky to find it. It has its own Gasthof, which is basically a small, old-fashioned restaurant with traditional Austrian cuisine. They offer a daily menu (cooked lunch, including a hearthy soup and two second courses of which you can choose) for a reasonable price even we can afford. I can gighly recommend the place to everyone.

After lunch we went exploring. Have found the cathedral... It is one of those horribly Baroque places where the excellent craftsmanship is really wasted on the terrible design. The simple Baroque townhouses that somehow remained in their original state are very nice, though.

We also saw the "Löwenapotheke", that is the pharmacy of the Golden Lion, which is the oldest continually functioning shop of the city. There will be pictures later, when is am home.

Thanks for the good thoughts, my friends, so far we've had a good time. I hope it will remain so for the rest of our holidays.
