This is my new venture 😀
For the last eight years I have dedicated my life to my boys. Previously I had always worked full-time since I was eighteen, part-time after Wriggler came along and then when Bruiser came along, I gave up my career and work all together. Bruiser had a lot of difficulties, life was becoming increasingly stressful for us and my family needed me at home with them. It was the best decision ever!
I am incredibly, incredibly grateful for every second I have spent at home with my boys. I know just how lucky I am. A friend once told me that ‘childhood years wait for no one’ and that they do not! I have cherished every moment. It hasn’t been easy by any stretch of the imagination. Bruisers difficulties aside, bringing up children is damned hard work as I am sure any parent out there will agree. I’ll admit there have been days when ive thought it would have been easier to be at work. But those thoughts were quickly filed to the back of my mind. I have been there with the boys for all their school performances and special mentions, when they were poorly at school and needed collecting, all the school holidays. I wouldn’t have swapped a second of my time with them for all the money in the world. The last eight years have been THE BEST years of my life.
But anyway, where was I? Oh yes, my new venture. Bruiser started full-time school in september and I now find myself home alone (im not even going to discuss that any further because it still hurts too much). I am going to need to do something. I was planning on returning to work however, it’d have to work around school hours, be term time only. My previous career was out of the question. Id considered working in a school but without any formal qualifications and experience working with children professionally it would prove quite difficult. If I couldn’t get term time hours, child care for Bruiser in the holidays would prove a nightmare due to his difficulties. Hubby didn’t want me to go back to work either. He likes having a ‘housewife’ and he is also of the opinion that life is hectic and stressful enough without throwing another job into the mix.
For the last few years I’ve made the boys their birthday cakes myself. Although ive never had any formal fondant /cake decorating lessons (my Mum taught me everything i know), ive impressed myself and others. Friends have been telling me to go into business for myself making birthday cakes. So ive taken the bull by the horns and done it. Its nothing huge yet, more like a hobby but, I make cakes!
I’m very excited about this new venture. It’s not going to earn me millions, far from it but, it’s going to give me a creative outlet and it’s going to help keep me sane (if there is such a thing) 😉
I thought about running another blog ‘The Icing OnThe Cake’ along side Mummy Wife Woman, sharing my cakes but I decided that I don’t always have the time to run this one never mind another too. So this is my Cake Page… It is after all just another branch off Mummy Wife Woman! 😀
I will update these links as and when the posts go live…. I’ll be quick!
