More racing...

We spent a great day out at Donington Park last weekend watching the qualifying for the British round of the 2009 MotoGP.

Although it wasn't a wet day itself the ground was sodden and so we needed to be dressed appropriately - this is little man's first pair of wellies and ear defenders too. They proved to be a little difficult to keep on his head until the big duc's went round and he wasn't wearing them - they stayed on after that!


Daddy and Uncle Ashley didn't want to look silly so just carried on watching the bikes!

Race Success...

I'm very pleased to be able to report that the Boucher girls and honorary Boucher (myself - having given up the name a little over 2 years ago), all completed the Race For Life on 5th July 2009 with no mishaps and in reverse order of the race 2 years ago!

It was great to be amongst all those wonderful people again who feel so passionately about 'doing' something for a good cause and despite a poor weather outlook - morale was high and the atmosphere really supportive.

We're slowly coming to the conclusion that we like doing the race every two years so 2011 - look out!

Cupcake Mountain...

I was so thrilled to get hold of one of these gorgeous wilton stands that i went a little bit crazy and made lots and lots of cupcakes and then a day later was making a birthday cake for a colleague.

As I will be leaving work this year due to redundancy - I'm looking into alternative things to do that will help to support our ever growing household - all ideas very welcome!

I've found a local college course in cake decorating and that's a start I suppose - my current efforts are incredibly amateurish and I'm really looking forward to some guidance and tips for creating beautiful cakes!
