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…..

You, me and dupoo.....

Another sleep packed night. Long may it last my little one. Feeling very blessed about this as I know many mums who are so exhausted only to face another night of zero sleep. But I will say, he is even more unsettled this morning. Many... many...tears. His social worker was due any minute and he was having one of his 'moments.' Hmmm...I thought...this is not going well. But he was on his best behaviour for her and she seemed happy with his progress. Although once again he did his best to drown her out with the noisy fire engine. Interesting that the Fairy Godmother was happy to send him off with the noisiest toys. I think he is just dehydrated and so we keep offering him his water all morning. He usually takes one sip and throws the rest over himself and the dogs. But we persevere and make sure he gets enough. I will say, his mood did improve but that may have been lunch or the fact that he managed a long awaited poo. See, taking after his daddy already.
