You might think...

You might think that after being silent for the entire month of Nano, that maybe I had actually done some writing, but no, I didn’t write a word, and I’m a bit bloody surprised November’s about to end too!

Haven’t been up to a lot, but then, I’ve also been so busy I feel like I’ve barely sat down. Guess it must be all that fun I’m having.

Not a lot is new with me, but that’s the joy of kids – when your own life fades into monotony, theirs is a ball!

R’s had meetings about a school ski trip he’s going on in February (lucky little bugger!), he’s also got detention tomorrow (after school, which means the rest of us do too, as we’ll be sitting outside, counting the mind-numbing minutes, one-by-one. And probably seeking out any public loos, if S and J are on form).Thankfully the detention wasn’t for beating anyone up (he saves that habit for his siblings!), but because the dog ate his homework. Not that we actually know that, it could just as easily have been his sisters coloured it in, and then binned it – who knows? At least I know he did do it, having helped him.

Also providing some high life are my parents, who are back from Africa tomorrow and want to see us immediately. Oh goody, guess dinner will be a late one.

J’s got nits, AGAIN. I don’t even have the energy to swear about it this time. And she keeps telling me off, which was kind of funny at first but is fast wearing thin. Today it was because I forgot her brioche from the supermarket, pity the man who marries her. For his sake, I hope he’s rich.

P is still P, my special little man so full of contradictions. He’s wearing me out at the moment. On the one hand he got his SAT results and got 4th best in his school year (I gaped like a fish with the shock of it!!), on the other he can’t have a conversation with anyone without starting a row or trying to scare them. And he’s still practicing his Evil Genius laugh, seems to have got the rest of his act down to pat!

S is another funny one. After starting the term by adding to my grey hair problem, she’s just finishing up her month as her class’s ‘Pupil of the Month’. Go figure. Her teacher recons you wouldn’t know she was the same child. But I know she still the same child! In fact her and P are ‘bestest’ friends now, why am I not surprised?!

And I’m out to lunch tomorrow which will be fun. I think. It’s with twenty of the moms from school, and several offspring. No idea how the numbers grew to that, I swear it was three if us when the plan began. Never mind, it’s sure to be entertaining as we’re throwing in a dog walk to start the event (when it’s not the bosses/kids/Better Halves making demands on us, it’s the bloody dogs!) And we’ve got a dad coming too, brave man. He’s one of the ‘new generation’ househusbands – except this one does it really well ;)

Here’s a sugarpaste character of him and his brood:

This was a Christening cake I made this past weekend. I also had a birthday cake, but didn’t bother photographing it as it was another fairy toadstool, and I think I have at least three posted already.

But I did made a Princess Castle the week before:

And the week before that, it was a Pirate cake:

The week before the pirate cake, I also made another pirate cake, but I won’t bother posting a photo, as you only want to see so many pirate cakes ;o)

As you can see, cakes are sill taking up a lot of my time…which has just reminded me, I should be baking cupcakes for the Christmas Bazaar by now!

Huzzah!! You're still alive. There is a vacancy in Jersey, which I put on my shortlist, but it rather looks as if I'm not going to be sent there. Which is a shame in a way.

Those cakes are unbelievable! Did you really make them???? They are lovely!!! You should definitely have your own business if you haven't already. You'd make a mint!!!

I got in trouble for not doing my homework when I actually did it too.!

I have been checking your blog, hoping to be the first commentater when you did post, but looks like I gave up too soon!

The cakes are fantastic, as always. The pirate one's my favorite!
