Busy bee.......

Hello there. It's sunday night and no I am not relaxing on the sofa with my feet up watching the ol' box, I am updating my blog!! I'm trying, I'm trying!
This week has been another busy one. Infact with a fifteen month old it's always a busy week. Sometimes being an at home mum looking after Harrison leaves me feeling lazy. I feel I should be out there working...earning the green. In my spare time I am creating my wedding head pieces and cake designs and yet I still have to reassure myself that it's ok not to have a job at the moment.
Since the age of 16 I have worked. My first job was washing hair at a local hairdressers on a saturday(this is why my hands are still so dry). I kept that job throughout college and as soon as college was finished I found another job. I continued in that same job until I was made redundant last year.
I don't stop from when I get up until I go to bed and caring for a little one is the hardest job I have had, also the most rewarding.
so why can't I except that being an at home mum is a full time job? Does/did anyone else feel that way?

Enough of my ramblings, here's what's been happening this week........

These are chocolate cupcakes with a chocolate frosting. I wanted to make some fondant flowers with a vintage feel and this was the outcome.
They tasted rather good too!
The frosting made me very happy because it was a perfect concistency to pipe onto the sponge.Happy days!

I have also been trying to update my other blog 'prettylittleheadshandmade' if you have a chance, please have a look. I am hoping that one day this will become my 'job'!
I have a few more designs to add to my blog, but they are already on my FB page.
I can also be found on Facebook. If you felt so inclind, you could press on the 'like' button on the facebook page and become a friend of my site . So far I only have ten likes ( sniff sniff ).

Here's hoping you have agreat week, even if it's a little chilly!x




  1. These cupcakes look delicious! I think I will be same as you when I have a child! I have never stopped working and although at the moment I think maternity leave sounds like a dream, I'm sure I will feel guilty and an urge to get back to work!

    But remember you are doing the most important and rewarding job you can do! Enjoy the time, I'm sure it will go all too fast! xx

  2. These cupcakes look so yummy. Do you know that chocolate cupcakes and white frosting are my favorite dessert? I have to tell you that I totally understand what you're going through. I was a stay at home mom for many, many years, and it is something that I will never regret. Yes, you go without alot of the luxuries, but in the end, it is worth it I believe. You can never take away the time that is spent with your little ones. I just wanted to tell you how wonderful I think you are to be at home raising your kids. You may not feel rewarded now, but one day, when they are 30 years old, you will think back at all the little things you did for them and be pleased.
