It’s been so long I think I forgot how to blog!
Blogger even asked me to sign in, forgot who I was, as a matter of fact I forgot who I was for a while.
I became surrounded by things I had to do, things I wanted to do, being a mum, being a partner, being a daughter, being a sister, being a friend.
I neglected those close to me because I knew they would understand, I promised my mum we would bake together yet things just got in the way. I missed girlie get togethers because I had so much to do. I was late for deadlines which upset me.
I baked for what seemed like weeks on end and even the flour bucket was empty…empty, my flour bucket is never empty.
You know every so often it gets a bit messy around here.
I always try to keep it pretty for you, I don’t want you to come over and feel down.
I want you to enjoy your visit and leave smiling, leave hungry, or even leave inspired.
Time does fly when you are having fun!
I have had a year of ups and downs, hopefully, more ups than downs, but you know what, you stuck by m.e and made me smile every time you popped by and left a sweet word.
Every time you sent me an email, every time you shared a bit more about you and wanted to find out a bit more about me.
This year has been more about me as a person, a mum, someone who likes to create more things than just a cake or a cupcake and I enjoyed it.
So I once again thank you for allowing me to be me and talking back so I knew that you were listening.
Huge love, hugs, hearts and cupcakes to you lovely friends ♥
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.
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.
* varying degrees of depression
I don’t know how the new year snuck up so quickly, it seems very weird to be writing 2011 on things.
It’s been a while since I have been online, it’s been a while since I baked, it’s been a while since I took a photo and it’s definitely been a while since I spoke to you.
I had soo many things planned in my head, so many recipes to share, so many photos to take and then my camera went back for repairs, I think she had a hard year and then I needed to go in for repairs.
I got sick, I couldn’t get out of bed, I couldn’t stand up without feeling faint, all my energy was lost, all the colour was gone, maybe I had a hard year as well.
I promised you some cupcake papers so I let random.org choose a number so Sarah, please send me an email with your details and I’ll post them off to you.
Thank you all
sooo much for taking the time to leave me your wishes for the new year, I wish them for all of you.
As for me, I will enjoy some tea parties and let the kids bake their own cupcakes for a while and hope that I get my camera back pretty soon or just spoil myself and buy another one because really, I am totally lost
without it and every time she gets sick..so do I…hmmmm.
Thank you to those sweet friends who sent me lovely Christmas surprises and made me smile…you are awesome ♥
Much love, health and happiness to you sweet friends for a wonderful 2011 and I promise to be back with some more recipes and pics soon
