Mea Culpa!


I have a sometimes have a tendency to open my mouth and say things before I've really thought about it or thought about what I mean. There has been more than one occasion when I have followed a particular statement with "Did I just say that out loud?".... "Umm, yes!" I think my last post was a case in point. I was so taken up with my thoughts spilling out that I hit the publish button before taking time to read and edit, and I fear some of you have got the wrong end of the stick.

The news I received last week was not what I was excited about (it doesn't take much to get me excited, believe me, but that is a whole other problem). In fact it wasn't very good news at all and as soon as I know it is public knowledge I will share it with you. But the news itself has affirmed for me that the big change I made last year to launch a baking business while cutting down on other committments was worth the risk. And that just seemed exciting... because I feel it has freed me up for other things and I'm full of enthusiasm and ideas. So sorry, my fault to let you think there was something REALLY exciting going on!

Well there is... our puppy arrives at the weekend... that's exciting!


Let's see how much baking I get done with him around! The kitchen has already been puppy proofed!

  2. Good to hear you have no regrets with the change of direction taken. Oh, that puppy in a basket! Maybe you should buy a copy of this:

  3. Congratulations on taking that risk Gina. I'm not surprised it's a success. Wish I lived nearer. Your cakes have always looked wonderful and i feel sure they taste even better than they look. I've always admired your baking.

  5. I am so exited to read more about puppy Hector. As for your fast typing, we all sometimes press the publish button more quickly than we maybe should. I wish I was brave enough to launch a solo business. I am so happy for you that your business is doing well. x

  10. I think knowing that you've made the right decision and enjoying is definitely something to get excited about and of course, who wouldn't be squealing at the thought of Hector coming to stay? I'm delighted for you that life is good just now. xx
