I feel as though I've been absent for a while.
(although it has been less than a week)
I'm not really sure what has been going on to keep me away...

  • I made cake... blueberry and lime drizzle
  • I've started a new term teaching
  • I took my samples to be photographed... filming starts next month
  • I've done housework... a rare event so worth a mention
  • And today we went to see some alpacas... funny looking things!

So just a bit of this and that really... but I feel like I'm biding my time before stuff really gets busy. The next six weeks seem just a little bit crazy. My MA starts in a couple of weeks, I've got work in an exhibition in Norwich which requires my presence for a day (not to mention actually finishing the work), and a teaching schedule like I've never tackled before... including four days in St Ives. So I may well be absent on and off for quite a while. Lets just say blogging will be erratic and I'll be back properly at the end of October... for my Pink Friday Party!

For other members of my family life seems to be one long party... Joe, still in New Zealand has been watching the rugby world cup... apparently he was spotted on the TV coverage which I have to say I missed! (Joe's the one in the middle.) I miss Joe too!


  1. Joe looks happy, as was my husband when England won their match. Your schedule sounds daunting but very exciting. That cake looks delicious and I'm knitting cupcakes - much safer than baking them!

  2. Joe has a huge grin on his face and having the time of his life. You are working hard to get everything done on your schedule.
    We are enjoying hearing from your and seeing happy alpacas.

    Just enjoy yourself Gina and so will the rest of us.

  3. Remember that old adage Gina - 'If you want something done ask a busy woman!' As long as you don't do anything off plan, like picking up a duster again, I suspect you'll sail through your schedule for the next six weeks. I have not started my cake yet but I did pick up some wool in a sale whilst away so the spirit is willing.... looking forward to keeping up with your projects as and when there is time to post them.

  4. I know what you mean about biding your time before it gets busy - don't forget to stop and breathe occasionally when it all kicks off!

  5. I've no idea how you manage all the things that you do. Good luck with it all, I'm sure you'll sail through.

  6. When will you be in Norwich? I'll try to get down to see you.

  7. Looks like you're good and busy Gina. At least you have good cake to keep you sustained! ;-)

  8. Goodness me, you have made me feel quite exhausted! I hope that it all goes well.

  9. That cake looks so delicious I had to go and get myself a healthy yoghurt to eat while I read your post so that I wasn't tempted to eat something naughty!! ;o) Lucy x
