I signed up to wordpress a while ago after several friends said I should start blogging about my cooking and cake decorating, but never actually wrote a post – til now! I went through the usual range of excuses: I can’t write (I’m not after a career in journalism so I guess it doesn’t matter too much), nobody will be interested in what I have to say (well, they don’t have to read it!) and I don’t know how to blog (I’m managing so far…). Eventually, I decided that I would give it a go, so here I am!

I apologise in advance as I know I use too many smiley faces and exclamation marks! :-) I haven’t ‘written’ since university so my style is not good. But if you stick with me, I’ll hopefully improve. I’m actually quite looking forward to sharing stories about my children (Grace aged 4 and Faith aged 1), pictures of my cakes and cupcakes and recipes I like to cook.

That’s the disclaimer over with, so now… onto my first ‘proper’ post…..
