Never enough time...

Well, I never seem to have enough to do all that needs doing in a day that is for sure!

Today I have been literally sat at the laptop since, I did the chores & had my shower, I've been updating & trying to get content on my website you see...  I am sure people that look at websites think it is a 2 second job & everything is just there for you - WRONG!!!

It takes an absolute age, or maybe that is just me?!  I've been amending pages, getting rid of 'SPAM' comments (I'm so glad they're saved for approval before going live, more about that in a different blog), trying to add photos to my galleries (that hasn't happened, so need to get assistance from my friend Lorraine) it all just takes so long & you feel like you are getting nowhere... well that's how I feel about it.

It's so disheartening, as I really want to make my website look beautiful & add photos etc, but it just doesn't seem to get very far along at all.  Still bestie had a look around & left a comment for my guest book that I approved - So at least I have 3 guest book comments now, some news for the latest news page, I've linked this blog to the site, changed the sites header logo, edited the text on the home page & managed to put the correct picture to Lorraine's testimonial.  Doesn't sound like much does it?!

It took all afternoon though as I was trying & trying to upload pictures to the cupcake gallery but to no avail, it will be fully photo functioning one day - no idea when that day will come though as like my title suggests, there just isn't enough hours in the day!!!

Anyway, if you would like to take a look at my incomplete website, you can find it here: So·phis·ti·cakez!

Only another 10 days...

Where on Earth has this year gone?!  I sit here updating my blogs (as I have been blogging a lot from my mobile & iPod - they don't make them look so pretty) & think to myself I last wrote a cakey blog on March 7th... OMG it's April 20th now!!!  I have just been so horrendously busy at home with the children, with the cakes, with chores that time has just brushed past me & it's almost May, we're almost half-way through the year!!!

So what have I been up to since my last cake blog I hear you ask???  Well it's been pretty much business as usual & lots going on as always both at home with the family, out with friends & of course loads of cakey goings on, else why would I be writing on my cake blog? Lol

Now this is the list of cakey goings on since my last cake blog; A very chocolatey 8" ultimate chocolate cake for my very dear friend & 'Biatch' Elaine, 84 x chocolate cuppies & 84 x vanilla cuppies for Cameron's (my eldest) teacher Mrs Clark (neé Miss Andrewes) to celebrate her marriage with all the teachers at the children's school & all year 5's & year 6's, a 9" triple layer chocolate fudge cake with chocolate ganache filling for Anneliese's friend Hannah's Dad, My own Dad's birthday cake (sorry the picture is on my camera still), 80 cake pops & 48 x Easter cuppies for Easter weekend at various places... Lol  So just a little bit of baking?! 2 cakes (5 layers in total), 216 cuppies & 80 cake pops total!!!

Oh & I have also been asked about 3 more weddings, a 90th birthday & a 50th birthday too!

I suppose a few photo's (off my mobile, I love the camera on my HTC) wouldn't go a miss in this blog now would they?!
