My cold is finally breaking. I have felt much better today, I'm not quite out of the woods yet, but vastly improved. HK has got The Cold as well. Mary-Jane's sleep is still erratic. She took two hours to settle this evening. I quite strongly think she is having growing pains/growth spurt. I was putting her cream on her legs tonight and she kept on saying 'ouch' quite sincerely. She has tried to resist me creaming her legs for a few days now. Could be that they ache. She has had some medicine and all is quiet. Time to relax. And eat chocolate.
I turned 44 yesterday. I had a pleasant day. HK and Mary-Jane took me out for Tea and Cake in the afternoon and we met up with D. This birthday has been very CupCake-ified. Scrummy! HK got me a years subscription to Baking Heaven magazine and bought me some baking books from Amazon, they are due to be delivered tomorrow. Mary-Jane got me 'The Great British Bake Off How To Turn Everyday Bakes Into Showstoppers'. Mum got me a sugarcraft cutter/embosser gadget. D got me some wonderful things from Lakekland - 3 lots of cupcake cases, some gold and white dust, and some yellow sprinklies. I really can't wait to feel better and get my pinny on and get in the kitchen. I am overflowing with ideas and recipes I want to try.
I still haven't done any knitting. I thought about doing some tonight. Now I have relaxed after putting MJ down, I think I shall be too tired. I still want a really early night. I shall continue to look at my new Bake Off book and make mental notes of what I want to have a go at.
MJ awake and crying - see you later!
