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…..

I just haven't met you yet.....

I'm feeling exceedingly organised this week. I've been to the supermarket and bought equal and vast quantities of wine and nappies. Driving home I tune into an interesting talk on the radio on IVF. Women are talking about the pressures of the treatment. Both financial and physical. They talk about how they are never really explained the low rates of success and yet feel the pressure to just keep trying. All they want is a baby. It takes over their lives, puts a strain on their marriage and empties the bank account. My eyes begin to fill with tears. I have to pull over. It brings back so much heartache and I feel so much emotion for these women. That was me not so long ago and here we are with  just 2 more sleeps to go until we meet our precious little boy. I just can't quite believe it....


  1. I have a friend going through IVF now. Just think your little man will be with you soon and in time for Xmas xx

  2. By the way the last comment was from Rainbows xxx

  3. Just one more sleep...! (well I doubt you WILL sleep tonight, but you get the idea). Am so looking forward to your Mummy updates :-)
    Lots of love Chrissie and lil C x
