Last post September 2012. Happy Christmas, Happy New Year, Chinese New Year, Valentines Day, did I miss anything.
I have been so busy since I last blogged. First, we moved house. They aren't joking when they say buying a house is one of life's most stressful events. Dealing with the move and moving into a larger house with less storage was painnnfulll. A lot of my clothes that I stored in the loft didn't make it with me unfortunately. I am now the
proud confused owner of the least amount of clothes for about 20 years! Oh well, they do say you only wear 20% of your wardrobe - I just want to be able to rotate my 20% a few times.
Three weeks after we moved, I was due to attend my Niece's wedding. My last blog was about my wedding outfit. I was making the wedding cake and doing a dessert table. Everything was so lastminute.com that we made the final decision on the wedding cake design (inspired by a pic on Pinterest) and the list of items on the dessert table two weeks before. Stressful - I can't tell you how much. Probably the biggest bakefest of my whole life. Coupled with being a guest, my daughter being a bridesmaid, travelling from London to Nottingham, you get the picture.
Anyway, all was achieved and I attended the most beautiful stylish wedding of my life. My gorgeous Niece was a stunning bride, I was dabbing my eyes like a fool throughout the ceremony.

The ceremony all the more emotional as they were married by the groom's grandfather. We all had the most amazing day. They had a photobooth in the evening and there were some amazing pictures. These are some of my favourites - my Mum and Dad, my son and daughter and my Niece with her big brothers. If you are planning on getting married I would highly recommend it for your reception.

Finally the cake and the dessert table. The cake was a three tier of Red Velvet, Chocolate and Vanilla, covered in petals and topped with pink roses.
I hope you like looking at wedding pictures as much as me! Anyway, hopefully I can start blogging more regularly again.
