I've been home for a little while now & I've really appreciated getting back to a sea view.
I've gone back to working part-time & am mostly spending my free time eating cake with friends.
My friend Suz came for a visit last Monday & we went to the Cupcake Café for breakfast, which consisted of giant chunks of cake & milkshakes. It's never too early for cake!
I may have indulged in a fry-up for lunch...
But we did at least take a long walk along the beach, so that cancels it all out...kinda.
In continuation of my cake eating; it was my friend Maria's birthday last week, so I thought I would whip my Primrose Bakery Book out & try out another recipe. I made raspberry cupcakes with white chocolate buttercream icing, sprinkled with edible gold glitter, naturally. They seemed to go down quite well.
Despite all this cake eating, I am attempting to lose the weight I gained in London & have abandoned my car on the drive & am walking the 3.5mile round trip to work each day. I'm knackered & my legs & bum really hurt, but I'm hoping that's a good sign & I'll have matchstick legs by the time the weather heats up!
I think Mr Pig is happy I'm home. I've missed his snuggles.
He had surgery a little while before I left for London & now he's been left with a floppy ear.
He's such a patchwork dog, but I love him.
2013 is very much about finding what makes me happy. So far this has included spending time with friends, indulging my sweet tooth & snuggles with Pig. I'm really looking forward to the weather heating up, being able to get my little tanned legs out, planting lavender in the garden & reading my new Eva Rice book. Yes, I am a (soon to be) twenty six year old granny & you know what, I'm totes cool with that. Plus, I've got a little adventure I'm planning with Miss Wall, (details to come) which I'm really looking forward to.
