Lazy Sunday afternoon

Hi :)
Having a very lazy sunday afternoon. This week I have felt soooo tired. I think my body has finally caught up with a full time job - but do you know what? I LOVE getting up for work in the mornings. Not only does my job SMELL great but they gave us each a cupcake for lunch on Friday which made my world pretty happy, especially since we haven't done a food shop for a long time and I've been living off supernoodles and toast this last week...we just haven't needed to do one because we've been invited out to dinner every single night this week, however, while I was working Saturday, Sam did a giant food shop and our house is stocked up again with lots of fresh food and treats. Not only did he do that, he cleaned our little home, put fresh flowers everywhere and even made the dinner that night. Feeling very very blessed and now I'm going to enjoy chilling on the sofa for the rest of the night together.

Here's some sweet things I made this week for my stall at the end of August but in the meantime they are available in my shop.

Happy Sunday!

A heart made from butterflies

It was such a warm day today. I hear it's going to be nice all weekend which will be lovely since it's my long weekend off work. Good timing.
I have occassionally been able to taste test at work this week (best job!) since I'm the new kid and haven't tried all our products yet I get to trial a few things. I've had the cupcakes - unfortunately ate them before thinking about taking a photo...oh well, next time...however, this week I got to try our 'cake sundaes'. They are like pushpops but cake! This is the lemon one - my favourite.

On another note, here is something a made two very special friends. It was their tenth anniversary last week. The words around it are things like their children's names, the place where he proposed, the place they honeymooned, etc etc.

Sweet dreams friends, I'm off for an early night...again! Looking forward to a date night with the hubby tomorrow. Much needed. :o) x

'You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching...'

How is it August already? I haven't blogged for a while...hmmm...most of my posts start with that, I think I need to get better.
I have nearly finished my second week in my new job so I've been busy settling in to something completely alien to me but I've loved it! It is so fun working with cakes all day and because we're so busy time goes super fast, I keep forgetting it's my lunch break and before I know it people have started to clear everything away. Adjusting to a full time job hasnt been as scary as I originally thought, I don't even miss my day off because twice a month I get a three day weekend, the other two I only get one day but it's not too bad at all.
Everyone is nice, I'm decorating and smelling cakes all day - what could be better?

Once I get into more of a routine I can focus on making things again - I've done a few projects but I can't share them yet. Waiting for someone to recieve a gift someone has bought off me for someone else is exciting/driving me crazy! But I have lots to create for my craft stall at the end of August! If you're around SAVE THE DATE (27th August - bank holiday) It's HERE! Isn't it sweet?! It's just a 5-10 minute walk from my little home and they'll be a farmer's market there at the same time so I'll get to smell good food all day too - maybe sneak a sample or two!

Anyway, I'll be back soon, with more to say! I need to sort and organise my little life properly and get going with everything again!

Have a great few days.

P.s. The sun is shining! x
