Miss me?

It has been a while since I last posted, been very slack I know. I have had a great break from making cakes and blogging, it has been nice to spend time with family.

This past month I have been getting ready for the new year, updating my diary and calenders, getting school things in order, spending time with my lovely Children.

My eldest started school last week, she is enjoying year 1 so much and has great teachers, my middle child starts pre-prep tomorrow, I am going to miss him soooo much. I think it will be harder for me to let him go than my eldest child, he is such a mummy's boy. I have found a great pre-prep for him and it is walking distance so we can walk together to pre-prep he has a lovely teacher and a nice little class only 16 so far in his group. He only goes 2 days a week this year so we can get use to being away from eachother lol.

I was lucky enough to find this lovely wardrobe for my youngest daughter, it has lovely Queen Anne feet was already painted (I will give it a fresh coat soon) My 3 year old was having trouble opening the door to get her shoes and clothing out so I picked up the tassel for her she pulls on it to open her cupboard. She is so proud of herself. I put some glow in the dark fairies on the door to help her get over using her night light and it seems to be working. She does not want her night light on now because she can't see the fairies when the light is on. As I will be sanding it back and re-painting it having the stickers on there is a big issue esp with the stickers being white and the wardrobe being white. (I just hate furniture covered in stickers it really gets to me and fridges covered in stuff also affects me, but this is one thing I am learning to live with:D )

I also picked up this great scrap bucket for the chook scraps, I had this tacky ice-cream container on the bench. Don't you just love it, my husband does not understand the need of it as he thinks the ice-cream container was just fine. :D

I am now getting back into the swing of things making lots of cakes and yummy looking treats I have had a lovely break from it 6 weeks of not making any cupcakes and I am now ready to get back into it.

I will pop around and catch up on all your blogs over the next week.
Oh I am feeling ready to do another swap so if you hear of one let me know, if I don't find one soon I may just have to host my own....... Creative juices are flowing after my break.
