Happy New Year! New Year is all about seeing out the old and bringing in the new and I have been meaning to give my blog (and my life!) a bit of an overhaul for a while. So I hope you like the cosmetic changes to the blog: I wanted something a little easier to navigate and a bit fresher. Content should stay broadly the same but I would love to try to integrate more of my thoughts and experiences. I sometimes struggle with sharing (and articulating) even some of the most simple things so it will be a good exercise for me!
I had originally envisaged this blog as having a craft element but it has become a baking blog: I’m hoping that I’ll be able to share some of my creative efforts this year outside the kitchen too. In the meantime I will keep practising! Since I started my blog I have been doing more and more baking, both for myself and for friends and family. It has even led to a new job so expect to see more desserts as I practice those and look for new ideas each month for my role as dessert chef. I would also like to develop my own baking as a business and once a few things in my life are resolved that might be a possibility too.
But on to more important things. Happy Birthday to my son, Linus, who is 9 today. He’s a New Year’s Day baby so he definitely brought in the new.
More of his birthday cake soon.
In the meantime, Happy New Year to you all and thank you for a wonderful year of blogging: both reading and writing. I can’t say often enough how much I enjoy writing my blog and reading other people’s. I have (virtually) met some really brilliant people and think of you as friends.
So here’s to another great year of blogging, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts as I have already changed the colours, fonts and background so many times I have lost count…
