About Me

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…..

Let me introduce myself.....
I start carrying my phone everywhere with me in case I miss her call. Strangely the concept of her leaving a message just doesn't come into it. I don't want her to think I am difficult to get hold of. Does it really matter.....no...will that class me as a bad parent....no...so why am I doing it...? I honestly don't know. Maybe the fear of if I don't answer, the next person will and she will allocate her next available time to someone else and we will have to wait even longer? Miracuolusly, she calls and I answer! She sounds nice and friendly and we set a date....for 2 weeks time. I just say yes...again, i don't even check with my LRUN. Whatever we had planned for that day, I can tell you, is no longer planned. This is the most important thing ever...we have a date to start our home study. I wonder what she will be like. I wonder if she likes cake? Oh please let her like cake....
