Hello lovelies. Happy New Year – I guess said better late than never!
I just wanted to let you all know that yes, I am still alive! I am very conscious it has been months since I last posted anything, and I apologise!
To summarise, it’s been a crazy few months, what with work and home life. The end of the year was a very busy and testing time for me with work, and I was glad to see the end of the year and to take a well needed break from everything, which unfortunately included my kitchen! I also had some horrible experiences with misreading measurements and oven settings meaning the things I did bake were disastrous, as clearly shown below …
Home life has been just as manic with so many home improvements I’m not too sure where to start! We purchased our beautiful 3 bed house in October and already we have powered through with 2 new bedrooms, a study and an open plan living room / diner. Did I mention we have done all this ourselves with no help from any professionals? It’s been hard graft, but the work we have put in has made it a place I love more than anything else. It’s our home and somewhere we intend to spend a large chunk of our lives, so making it perfect just seems like the right thing to do. (Even all the late nights, evenings and early weekend starts!)
And through all of this, I was half tempted to start another blog along side LOVE the little bakery called “Painting and Cake Decorating”, until I realised I’m doing more of the painting then I am the baking!
I’m sure everything will calm down soon (fingers crossed anyway!). Although I am so excited to finally be ripping out our old kitchen in March to replace it with a super modern and sleek replacement. I love a good project and a real transformation. We both spend so much time in ours, and I can’t wait to use it again to come up with some new bakes for the year!
So 2016, what’s in store? At the moment, I’m not sure, but excited to see what the future holds. With regards to the bakes in my life, I’m excited to share some of last years drafted (but not posted) recipes, which include something I have always wanted to try – a Gravity Cake! Oh it was so much fun, have you ever made one?
Goodbye for now lovelies
