As for the contest, I decided not to put unnecessary pressure on myself and am not entering it. I am still making a cake (a small one for my BIL's birthday which is tomorrow but we will have it on Friday), and I will do the cake I wanted to design but on my own time. Since these contests are online and are done by photo, if it fits for a future one great, if not I have learned some new techniques without stressing myself out unnecessarily!

I am doing a happy dance today! TB had shift-pick (they do it every 6 months) and he got his first choice, which is a Monday to Friday 3 - 11:30 pm (hour lunch) shift instead of the Monday to Thursday 3-11 pm and Sunday 9am-5pm (1/2 hour lunch for all) he has done for a year.
I'm glad all is well and TB got a shift change. Not fun when we live past our loved ones!

I baked a cake today too It's Caitlin's 11 th birthday. Made a moist vanilla cake with buttercream icing. Covered it in pale blue edible glitter, icing sunflowers and wrote her name and age in pale blue. Very shiny cake
She loved it.

She wants her first car to be a new Volkswagen Beetle (blue with sunflowers painted on it)
Got the idea for her cake from that.

I am sitting here at the computer listening to disc #1 of Les Miserables. It is a good thing our walls are thick. I am singing right along with it.

My daughter goes for her next MRI tomorrow. Then we will gets the results on the 20th. I am so nervous and upset. I hate this disease. I have no control and am helpless to make it right like I did when she was a small child. I could fix all her boo boos. Not this time. Mommy's kisses won't make it all go away. She showed me where the swelling of her brain has gone down and where the tumor was, her scalp has caved in some. So now she has a big dent in her head. This waiting is so hard.

Thank you Laurie

It went down well, kids loved it! Just happy my princess liked it. The glitter is everywhere! In my hair, on my PJ's, on my socks etc etc.

I look like an off duty stripper I blew the excess glitter off the balcony today and when I walked to the shop, I noticed that the paving outside our flat is shiny blue

I've I mentioned the glitter?!
