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…..

Acceptance for the soul....

I no longer want to strangle Miss Delia. She's always said I was a very accepting person and I've done just that. Accepted it. Yet another planet adoption delay and setback. I am emotionally exhausted but I've accepted it. I think she honestly felt my disappointment in her soul and so sent us a follow up email. She explained that they didn't have any suitable children for us in our "zone" right now anyway, so another delay would make no difference in the big picture. She said that things just have a way of falling into place and that she would email me on Monday with a confirmed new date for panel. It took everything in my power not to chase her on Monday but to wait patiently for her to 'pull it out of her Per Una handbag'  She triumphs and we have a new date of the 29th May. I am pleased with this. Truthfully,  if she'd pushed it over into June, I think we may have been back to the strangling phase. However, I am still treading carefully here...she is coming to see us next week to go through our report with us. This makes me strangely nervous. Normally they just email or post the report to you. Why is she coming to see us? Is there a problem? I hope it's just because she feels she owes us a personal visit, I really do. Accepting yes but she forgot to mention 'paranoid!'
On another note, I've discovered a new anti ageing product. A type of natural dermo-filler that plumps up my cheeks and minimises wrinkles...it's called cake. Sadly my post IVF weight loss has started to creep back on and all this baking is really not helping. But fear not my little adoption buddies, something truly amazing is on the horizon. I have discovered a diet cake. A bizarre mix with diet coke and egg whites but trust me..it's a winner. This will change your life.
