Hopes and Resolutions

I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted, where an earth have the last few weeks gone!!!

As always, there's so much I want to share with you but just haven't had the time - I didn't make any resolutions this year, except for one - continue my journey with Slimming World.

In January, I joined my local group, having decided that with all the ups and downs we had before Christmas, that my progress was in serious danger of being thwarted by my severe lack of willpower.

I am only a few lb off being back to my lowest weight since starting Slimming World on my own last Easter, using the books from when I joined after having Erin. Since joining the group it has been much better, and although it's not been easy, the group I go to are really lovely and a good laugh!

I have recipes to share, cakes I've baked to show you and a number of things running through my mind I'd like to explore... however, one thing I will openly admit, and not feel guilty about, is that my blogging may be a little sporadic in the next few months. I'm still posting on the Facebook page when I can.

In our current season, my spare time is very few and far between, and whilst I love blogging, I simply don't have enough hours in the day so it will, for now, be taking a bit of a back seat.

One thing I would love to get started this year is far more tutorials, specifically in the area of cake decorating. I've made a few now, and I am starting to get some requests from friends and family now. The beauty of what I do (which is by no means a professional standard - one day I'd love it to be!), is that it's so simple anyone could do it!! REALLY!! With the right tools, and a bit of imagination it really is something anyone could do with a little practise.

With this in mind, there may be a new section coming up in Constant Craft that focusing purely on Sugarcraft and cake making, or it might even get a section of it's own! We'll see!

Right, back to the reality that is 3 children at home during half term, arguing and telling me they don't like each other any more!!lol! They love each other really! Enjoy your day!
