As the time draws closer to going back to work, you tend to reflect on how your maternity leave has been. Whilst nine months or even a year seems like such a long time, you blink and it is over. Reflection can be a subject that most people shut from their mind or the one they dread, simply because you maybe did not do all the things you set out to do when you thought you had all the time in the world to do it.(more…)
Ready. Steady. Bake.
I went through a phase a few years ago when I worked in retail management of using my days off midweek to bake. I loved it religiously. My forte lay in baking cupcakes and I would bake them by the dozen. I then changed jobs and well, really never baked again! I didn’t have time at the weekends and then I got pregnant and couldn’t face it. Along came Olivia and all time to do anything went out the window but that was fine, that was life. Much to the disappointment of my taste tester husband and my father in law who is quite partial to a bun or two or three 🙂
