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…..

The votes are in and the lines are now closed....

As a test, we popped round to the Twilights to see how LBM would be around other people he knows and their Baby Twilight who he knows well. His little playmate. After all, it's only 5 min down the road. He was clearly not comfortable. Even Mrs Twilight was shocked at how withdrawn and clingy he was. Not his usual chuckly, happy self. We managed 45 min before it was clear to me that a) we needed to get him home and b) the family visit tomorrow was definitely not an option. LRUN tried to soldier on and got involved in the dinner/bath/milk/bed-time routine. There were plenty of tears and it took a lot from me not to interfere. But to stand back and let them get comfortable again. But right now, they are watching 'In the Night Garden' together and all is calm. So my friends, we are back to day by day proceedings. Miss Delia is coming round in a few days time. This could be interesting.
