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…..

Tis the season to be jolly.....
I'm in mince pie mode..every year I end up making zillions of the little buggers and I am up to eyeballs in sweet, buttery pastry. So as a change, I make some mini chocolate brownies. I have a single session alone with Miss Delia today. We talk about and draw up my family tree which in itself is a mammoth task.  To my horror, in the midst of it all,  Miss Delia casually leans over and helps herself to a brownie. I stare in shock... The overwhelming sense of achievement I feel is a little worrying. All in all it's a very good session and I feel as though things are moving again but she does warn me that they are still considering putting our application on hold at some stage while LRUN gets used to the commuting thing. He is only due to start commuting at the end of February so who knows what will happen before then. I'm off to South Africa for Christmas to see my family and can't help thinking this could be the last time they see me without little ones...
