Keeping busy

It was not until I got in to bed last night that the full force of Michelles death hit me.
I rang Victor last night and almost expected him to say,its ok mate its all been a mix up ill just go fetch her.

We had to keep busy today

Lucy and Daniel would keep an army busy so I guess you could say I always am going to busy.
I didnt feel like venturing out,even though the sun shon today for the first time in months,i wanted to stay in the comfort of my own home surrounded by all things safe

So we baked....................again!!!!

We ended up with lightning Mcqueen!!

It was a good rememdy for taking my mind off the sad thoughts and I cherished every moment of watching my two little twinkles playing together,mixing,testing,testing and more testing.

I normally only bake when Lucy is having an afternoon nap as we really have to watch her diet due to her condition but today I wanted her to join in the is too short!!!

R.I.P Michelle

I learnt today that my best friend of 30 years has passed away at the age of 41
She has left a husband and 2 children.Charlie 7 years old and Tom 5 years old

Michelle I just wanted to say its not fair,you have had your share of health problems and troubles
I remember the night I was with you when you had to rush to your dying fathers bed side and the sad and cruel way that you lost your mum.
I remember the time you had off school waiting for kidney transplants,i remeber your greif when you didnt think you would have children due to all your treatment

But most of all I remember the funny,crazy,positive girl you were!!!
Everything that life threw at you you made light of,you never let things get you down,you always laughed and gave a ray of light over everything.
You gave birth to two beautiful boys Tom and Charlie,I know you will be looking down on them.

I remember in class at school when you always wore your hair over your ears as you hated your ears and when you had them pinned back and moaned cos you couldnt wash your hair for weeks.

I remember when we had a fall out over something silly and you sat next to me in class humming the whole lesson so you didnt have to speak to me.

I remember chosing your first curtains with you for your first house,remember those awful fruit explosion things with the matching border.

I remember wondering how your house always managed to look so fab with 2 lively boys running around.

I remember you being my bridesmaid and flashing your bum to the camera.(I still have the video)and the wonderful champagne breakfast that victor made for us.

I remember naming my daughter after you Rebecca Michelle

I remember my son being born on your birthday

I remember the last time we spoke.........not long ago!!! and we promised to see each other,meet in the middle you said.

I will never forget you and I dont fear coming to heaven when its my time as I will have my best and most loyal friend there

RIP love always Sally

Happy bakers spreading the love

This school break has been all about baking,buiscuits,cakes and icing,with sticky floors to proove it!!
My little Lucy chef was in full action in her own little kitchen,its so sweet watching her play mummy and make cups of tea along with all the slurping noises for effect

Lucy and Daniel enjoying afternoon tea,as I cooked for all the family.They babbled and babbled to each other and Daniel decided he was making cross buns!!! I think I would like to taste his cross buns,maybe they are not so happy cos they are being eaten.
Daniel always makes me smile when I give him one of those looks when he is being naughty and says"mummy stop looking at me with cross eyes"
Here are our valentine buiscuits that I ended up taking to a girly night with friends,just because the recipie I made for the event turned in to a total disaster so they saved the day and all the girls were taking a heart or two back to their husbands and loved ones as a last minute valentine gift,
Glad I assist sending a little romantic gesture back to a few homes in the end so I didnt feel quite so bad turning up with my kiddies hand baked hearts after all

Rather random

Please excuse the randomness of my posts.I am revamping my blog (with the view to actually posting more) and I decided I wanted larger pictures and have been playing a little!!!

I have not blogged about all the problems we have had recently with Daniels school but I decided to move him to a new school for a fresh start as he has been so very withdrawn and he has just finished his first week at a smaller village school where he only has to share a classroom with 11 other students.

Slowly my little boy is coming back and his anxiety is clearing and I am so glad I made the choice to move him,we just didnt realise just how badly he had been affected and how overwhelmed he had been at his old school.
Its so sad that his first taste of scjhool life was such a bad experience for him but we hope he can forget and move on very quickly
