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…..

An apple a day.....
I'm feeling old this week and for some reason have become very conscious of time just passing. It might have something to do with LRUN's question to me on the weekend when I returned from the dog walk wearing what I guess was technically my pyjamas of  "How many hours a day do you spend without a bra these days?" After my initial glare, he said he was just concerned....you know...gravity and all that. More glares! It got me thinking, at nearly 42, am I getting too old to be a mummy? Am I too old to be running around after a little one. Aah but alas..my LRUN is alot younger than me so surely what my mother always taught me of 'you're as young as the man you feel' now couldn't be more apt. Anyhoo...I like to think I am technically only 35...plus VAT.
I have a doctors appointment too. These always make me feel old and past my prime but that's probably because the surgery here is like geriatric city. They want to check my thyroid, as there seem to be some obvious symptoms like infertility, sluggish system and difficulty in losing weight. It turns out my thyroid is completely normal, so normal in fact it's obvious to everyone that I am simply just infertile and incredibly greedy. I celebrate these results by making one of my favourite cakes, an Apple Crumble Cake. Thick layers of luscious spiced apple sponge squished together with lashings of buttery icing and a crunchy sugar topping. An apple a day and all that.....
