Hello to you all!
I am back from a long break and I have missed my little blog here.
I didn’t really intent to take a summer break but after numerous reasons I had no other choice than to take a little break. I also didn’t want to rush my posts in between and decided that a summer break is nothing to be ashamed of 🙂
Reasons were of happy and not so happy nature. I had to go to the hospital because of knee (and other) problems and turns out that I have to be operated… So I will take things quite now here for a while, hope you stay with me!
But I really don’t want to talk about my health issues now here, so lets see what the happy reason were of my absence:
I became an aunt!
For the very first time and lets be honest, I have the cutest little nephew ever 🙂 As my family lives a few hours apart from me, I took of two weekends in a row to travel back and forth to visit my family and our new family member 🙂 And of course there was cake! I made a baby boy cake with a teddy bear and some balloons that include the name. Lucky me he has a short name 😉 I spend a lot of time with the inside of the cake as well and made a Raspberry Cake with fresh fruit and a raspberry and passion fruit cream filling.
To stay with the theme, we visited more family members last week in the Netherlands. We had lovely weather and enjoyed some days at the Sneek Week, a sailing competition in the northern part of the Netherlands. And there were even more babies while visiting some friends 😀 So you see, I was busy seeing family and friends and babies! Now I am back again and I realize that I would like to have at least another week of vacation, but alas, I have to go to work tomorrow again and than it is a long time until I can go back to my family to see how fast my little nephew can grow 🙂
Have a nice last month of Summer, I cant believe we are already almost half way through August…
