Well that was a year that was ...

... pretty horrendous.

I cannot believe that I'm sitting here typing this more than six months after my last post. My apologies for my silence since June.

By way of explanation, all I can say is that I have been ill. The stresses and strains of the last few years finally took their toll, and in a way I never expected, I was literally knocked for six within the space of a weekend. While things are slowly improving, the last six months have felt like an ordeal just existing, never mind blogging.

So I must admit that I will be glad to see the back of 2013, and hope that 2014 can see me start to move forward a bit more. Getting back to baking, and blogging, I hope will be part of that process.

I hope that you've had a great Christmas, and that the New Year brings all that you wish for.

I'll be back pretty soon with some baking.

Until then, take care,

Susie xx
