- mummy in the baking
- This blog is about me and my voyage to becoming a mummy. Ironically called “mummy in the baking” as together with my passion and obsession for all things cake related, I will never be able to have my own "bun in the oven." Years of fertility treatment have taken their toll and I now find myself on a new..eek, i hate this word...journey! The crazy train to adoption. I hope you will join me while I bake my way to becoming a mummy. I want this blog to be a source of information as well as a comforter. I hope it will inspire and help anyone who is considering adoption or who has in fact already bought their ticket for this..here I go again...journey. Cake makes me happy and I hope you will enjoy sharing my love of it. I want it to help lift your spirits and hearts through what can only be described as 'the trials and tribulations of the adoption process.' Along with my desire to be a family, I love my dogs, have an unhealthy love of sausages and chenin blanc, adore my land rover uber-nerd of a husband and continiously dream of balmy summer evenings. Baking in progress…..

Dead on 8 weeks.....
We get a letter today dead on 8 weeks since the Prep Course saying we had been allocated a social worker. No other news, no dates, no appointments, just a name. But little milestones like these make me happy. It's just that little step closer and makes it all worthwhile when you have to face the endless questions of friends and family who ask...."Any news with your thing?" Humans are funny aren't they. It's amazing how many people refer to this as our 'thing' I don't blame them though... I know it's only because they care and find the whole situation a bit awkward and unfamiliar. Even though we are a very close group of friends at work, I won't deny that it has been particularly hard for me. I was the first one who was planning a family. 5 years later and I am still 'planning that family' Two colleagues who have helped and supported me throughout all the fertility treatments have gone on to get married and subsequently had twins and a little girl in those 5 years. The cherry on the top and my all time favourite slap in the face with a squishy cherry was the maternity cover girl who went on to fall pregnant by accident. I mean you are kidding me! Luckily we are all really good friends and will remain good friends, with or without children. We have a McMillan coffee morning at work and I am proud to submit my infamous Lemon Drizzle...it goes down a treat.
