Well what do you know?

Not a lot is my usual reply. I have learnt over the last few months, what with TT and stuff that my relationship with food is complex very simple. I use food as a celebration; weddings, birthdays, winning the lottery, having good news. I also use it as a comforter; funerals, bad news, lonliness. When I'm bored I cook, when I'm happy I cook, when I'm depressed I cook, let's be honest I generally cook! So it is easy to see how I got to put so much weight on, especially over the last couple of years with no job and no-one to keep me company. Today's baking falls into the "I need cheering up" category. I'm suffering from Aussie withdrawal.

Lemon icing cupcakes

Having had 2 weeks off the D.I.E.T. thing I of course gained a couple of pounds, not that I mind in the slightest, it averages out at less than 3 ounces a day, a very small price to pay for all the joy I have had over the last fortnight. It does mean that I won't be eating any of the above!!


  1. And where were you on Thursday when I was elbow deep in baking to take to the Royal to make up for only bringing back enough Wedding cup cakes for the night staff and not even a buttie for the health care assistant who saved my dress? Huh well? ;D

  2. They look positively delishous.... they don't have things like that here in Colombia which is why I am able to keep the lbs off.... for now... and I walk every day.
