Preparing for Easter

I worked on two Holy Week and Easter related articles for The Catholic Weekly over the last couple of weeks.

One’s a scriptural reflection on humility. The other a fun round up of some of the Sydneysiders who work crazy long hours to make sure people eat well at Easter. This year Easter coincides with Ramadan as well as Passover, and at one of the family-run bakeries I visited they’ve been really run off their feet.

While on the job at a Polish smallgoods shop I picked up some egg dye kits to try out for something to do with the kids on Good Friday when we mainly stay at home. I’ve never done it before, the instructions on the packets looked simple enough. I got a bit excited though and bought enough to dye 160 hard-boiled eggs—wish me luck lol.

It’s been a busy month, hence the slow return to blogging. On the home front we had a teenage birthday yesterday and another one coming up in about two weeks. Another child has a fracture in her hand which required a few extra appointments. Our eldest is planning a big European trip and we found out that another might have an opportunity go overseas as part of an exchange program too. And the kids’ summer basketball season finished with a couple of grand final games that literally had us on the edge of our seats.

A short course on spiritual theology I signed up for came to an end. I’m a bit lost now as I really liked having that hour and half session each week. I’m wondering if I should sign up for more subjects, or look into a postgraduate degree or something else entirely.

Do have look at the CW articles and let me know what you think, I’ll be surprised if the food story doesn’t make you hungry!
