*she says sheepishly to the blog she's neglected for 2 years like a beautiful pair of horrendously expensive shoes because they were hidden in the back of the cupboard behind the cheap and comfy shoes*
It has been a while hasn't it? I know, I know. "Where the hell have you been???" I hear you cry!! "We thought you were DEAD!!" Or something less dramatic. Like "Oh you. Yeah, I'd totally forgotten you did this". A lot (A LOT) has changed in the last 2 years and in my defence I have been through a...er....transition period.
I got divorced.
In all seriousness, these things happen but it has meant a lot of big changes in our lives. We moved house into our little cottage on the canal with roses around the front door, little lady started school and is about to finish her first year and I changed jobs again to work closer to home.
We travelled. As a form of "I'm really sorry I'm divorcing your dad" I took the little lady to Disney World and she was treated like a princess. I went on a girls holiday back to the lovely Paris (twice) and took to the road again on a couple of business trips. Tried skiing for the first time. And, having agreed that my ex could take madam back to visit his family for 2 weeks at Christmas, instead of sitting on my arse feeling sorry for myself I decided to have an adventure taking a trip to the incredible Kerala in India for Christmas and learned how to surf. Well, learned how to stand on a board on white water 15% of the time and spend the rest of the time being put through a washing machine but loving every minute. I did catch 1 greenie though and I'm taking that for all its worth.

I have of course kept up the baking and testing and tasting and seem to have fallen into the trap of running the cake stall at the school fairs. Oh and don't think I've forgotten how to make an inappropriate cake, I made some seriously inappropriate cupcakes for another birthday...
Anyway, enough of that shizznit. My sister has encouraged me to get back to the blogging so I'm back and even if no one else likes it I know I have at least 1 fan!
