Mummy, ginger cake pwease!

Squidge says this to me a couple of times a week.  The girl loves to bake and when I say bake I mean she likes to lick (yick pwease) the spatula.  Being as I pretty much give this girl whatever she wants we have been baking a cake once a week.  Can I say that this is not helping my ever expanding ass??  So I’m signing up to WW this week.  Am I the only one having a hard time excersizing??  I usually go for some nice long walks, just me and Squidge and then when Wal gets home from work we would go on another walk.  These little walks were fantastic.  I’d jibber on about this house or that house I’d seen on rightmove.  Wal would pretend to listen to me as I droned on and on about a house we would never buy.  Squidge would be let out of the pushchair for a quick run around a park of quiet street.  With the days getting shorter by the time Wal gets home it’s long since gone dark so we don’t end up walking.  I haven’t gone on a proper walk in weeks, I need these walks people!!  Between no walks and a cake per week well lets just say that my ass is now in another post code to the rest of me!!

I had said I would explain the Ikea photo.  It really isn’t what you all thought it was.  You too can be on the cover of the Ikea catalogue.  Just walk into Ikea and walk over to the photo shoot area and ask the guy if you can have your photo taken.  Then walk over to the printer and wait for another guy to stick you brand new photo onto an Ikea catalogue.

    Cake is good, and your house is like ours, full. I would love a big American house. Holl always says that’s one of the main things she misses, the space. I can’t imagine ever being able to afford a big house here though. Maybe we should start a commune and do it between us. 😀

    Mmmm… I love long walks as much as cake. Although, ginger cake sounds divine.

    We just adopted a new pooch and it forces us outside for long strolls. It just leaves me with little time to get things done! The house is a mess and I’ve got volunteer work scattered across my kitchen counter, untouched. I could spend the whole day strolling, but I think my mutt and 3 year old would tire easily.

    She looks just like her mom…I think you should enquire about a career in photojournalism.
