It’s been cold this week, it certainly feels like winter.

It feels like I haven’t baked anything for you for ages!!

The truth is I have, I have baked sooo much that I can tell you I am nearly all baked out.

As much as I love baking, after tomorrow, I won’t want to look at my oven, icing, sprinkles, cake boxes or food colours on my hands all week.

I feel a bit like this lately, i haven’t been around much, google reader says I’m on 1.9 posts a week. 
I’m feeling a bit flat, a bit emotional, things get a little difficult to cope with.  Tantrums and squabbles are just too difficult.
The camera is not my best friend at the moment, the images just don’t seem to work like I want them to.
I get like this every so often, I deal with it and keep going.  
The fuzziness is slowly creeping back.
What is happening around the globe is upsetting. My heart goes out to them.


I have been “sad”* before and I just deal with it on my own. 
Do you ever get like this, for no reason, just because? 
What do you say to a 5yr old that asks why you were crying?
Hugs to you and sending hugs to a gorgeous girl who is on the road to dealing with her struggles.

Seven things

Sometimes I get an award here or there and even though I am more than grateful to be considered for one, I find them a little awkward to accept and post about because even though this blog is about me, well I find it a little hard to talk about me or post about awards.
I liked this award from the lovely, lovely Alicia over at The Red Deer, not because I am stylish but because I wanted to share a few things about myself with you :
Seven things
1. In real life, I seem quite confident but I am quite self-conscious and secretly a little shy too
2. I only speak English with my family but I can speak greek as well
3. Most of you might already know this from my about me page, but I don’t eat any of my baked goods as I am an oddly fussy vegetarian
4. I LOVE op shops and do not like buying things for my family brand new unless I have too (I must edit to add, handmade creations are definitely acceptable)
5. I have a slight obsession with collecting pretty tea cups and saucers but I love drinking my tea out of huge mugs
6. We moved to Cyprus with my parents when I finished high school and lived there for 5 years, I worked at a travel agency whilst there
7. Even though I love having a garden I am not really into gardening


Phew, that’s a few little bits about me, I hope that you can share a few things about you because everyone deserves an award.
If you do post seven things about you please pop back and let me know so I can get to know you a bit better too.

Thanks Alicia for the award, you definitely are pretty stylish in the kitchen
