My daily escape
Baking is my escape....actually anything domestic is an escape for me. When i've had a bad day i go home and clean my house....even if it's already clean, it's something about the sound of my hoover that washes all that bad energy away. When i'm feeling inspired i bake. I remember when i was little, sunday was my favourite day of the week. Mum would help us make something, my sister and i would love to make a bag or a scrunchie or a loaf of bread...which was always so hard you could throw it against a wall and it still wouldn't break! But we were always encouraged to be creative. As we got older my sister found her niche in sewing and i found mine in baking. I am so lucky that i get to be creative everyday and have the freedom to try something new on a whim. Some of you might just think i work in a cafe and that's not really a career but i see myself as one of the luckiest people! I get to wake up everyday and do something that i love. i get to decide what muffins people will drool over, will i make some lemon tarts today? maybe some whoopie pies? the possibilities are endless and my world is filled with inspiration.....who wouldn't want that?
