While my sisters were busy with their smutty stories and photos, I was writing about the art of Zen and children's toys, for a more proper kind of blog. Seriously.
Here's my post: Kids Toys - A Lesson on Quality, Sharing, Respect and Simplicity.
And just in case you think this is a one off, and that we can't do serious stuff at the Paris-Ankara Express, check my other guest post over at Multilingual Mania.
My original title for the Zen Family Habits post, which Sherri Kruger and Leo Babauta wisely changed to the above was:
'The art of Zen and beheaded dolls'.
What was I thinking?
Il like Zen Family Habit because the simple way of life they write about appeals to me in all sorts of way. And I often feel that living abroad gives me the opportunity to simplify my life in ways I couldn't in either France or England. So, for instance, we don't have a car.
One thing I'm not so good at, however, is avoiding clutter - our house looks a bit like a particularly messy Turkish tourist shop crossed with a library.
So if you'd like to read something a bit more improving than yours truly, head over to Zen Family Habits, and their sister blog Zen Habits.
And then come back.
Because clearly we're the kind of blog that's going places: smut AND guest posts in serious blogs.
What more could you possibly want ?
