New voter registration system will never take off
We're hosting, or co-hosting, or sort-of-co-hosting, a celebration for Mrs Ottawacker's niece, who has decided to take the plunge and get married.
The wedding was actually a couple of weeks ago in Hamilton, but we are having our own celebration with them this weekend.
"Can we make you a cake?" asked Mrs Ottawacker.
"Oooh, yes please. Can you do a carrot cake?" came the unexpected response.
And so Ottawacker Jr was enlisted to help, and a large number of iced carrots were created to place on top of the finished masterpiece.
But who wants to see a picture of a stunning wedding cake when you can have a stainless steel bowl of green and a series of dirty fingers? Eh?
