ummm, in german it's called Bienenstich. it's one layer of cake, then really thick vanilla pudding, then cake, & on top it's little bits of butter & roasted+candied almonds.

I'd never seen a copy of mothering before. I have read one article, which is OK. I was struck by the huge amount of advertising to be honest. About half of it seems to be advertising.

That cake sounds delicious... may I have the recipe? Please?

Oops. Surely they can't just kick you out?

no, but they can choose not to renew our contract in a year.
or she says she wants to sell her house, in that case we have one month to find somewhere else.

funny how you get a lot more done when stressed.
i am showered,dressed, presentable,
my children are clean, dressed & fed,
my carpets are cleaned & hoovered, our home is tidy & smells nice, all the washing up is done, looks like i might be making cake after all today.


[ i'll translate the recipe in just a moment, then i'll post it ]

i have never seen one, i read the articles online , but mostly i'm just here in the community.
that's a shame with the advertising. doesn't seem like mothering, i would have thought.

Well, the ads are mostly for baby carriers and cloth diapers, but that's still advertising

good morning!
post #36 of 1378
oh my goodness, that must have been terrible!!
it's actually the reason i am not pregnant yet, i so want another one, but the thought of having to find a new home while 9 months pregnant & then moving, no thank you.
hopefully,in a year, when this contract is up , we will be in a position to buy a little farm, so, then we can focus on family planning.
