Come on it, pull up a chair and get comfy

Welcome to my blog
It's about me, my family and the cakes I bake and decorate. Oh and no doubt the odd bit of Twilight related stuff ;)

It's been a while







I've been really busy with family, life and cakes lol

I've done a few more cakes and I did my very first craft fair. I loved it! It went really well too :)

Shingles

My daughter has been poorly with shingles.

She came home from school on Friday and said her back was sore. The doctor confirmed that it was indeed shingles.

I was surprised as I thought you only got it as an adult.

I had it a few years ago and it can be incredibly painful, luckily she's not been too bad, just a bit sore and itchy

She's recovering now though so all is good.

I got her on video yesterday singing along to her Barbie singalong DVD :)

Today i'm baking a cake ready to decorate for tomorrow. I'll post the pics when it's done

It's all worth while sometimes



This weeks cake was Hannah Montanna themed.

Now to say I'm not a fan is a slight understatement, in fact Miley Cyrus is an annoying twat IMO *shrugs* we're all entitled to one right?!

Anyway, the cake was for a 4 year old HM fan so who am I to argue, I just decorate them



It was for a friend of Mr Mary's so he delivered it for me yesterday. He had a phone call earlier today to say that the little girl was so pleased with it that she cried and kept saying thank you soooo much. Awwwwww bless her little heart.

The times I turn up at the supermarket, school playground etc with multi coloured hands from colouring the icing, the state my kitchen gets in when i'm in the middle of decorating and the nights I wake up with random ideas for cakes that have been ordered are sometimes made worth it by someone who genuinely loves what I've done for them :)

Oh the stress of decorating







Why does decorating make so much mess???

Yes it looks lovely when it's all done,but the actual process drives me mad!

We've done the downstairs toilet



The living room is almost done too :)


blimey check out the orbs on there

We've stayed with quite neutral colours, I don't really go in for bold.

Anyway it's looking lovely and fresh. Just the rest of the house to go now LOL
