If you already know me, I’m sure this blog comes as no surprise. If not, here’s a little something to bring you up to speed:
If my life were a TV show, it would be Happy Days. Not because there’s an
Italian-American bikie living above our garage – that’s not to say I wouldn’t let
the Fonz move in if we had a garage – but because I swear I’m channelling Mrs
C. I love to bake and sew. Heck, I’m even breeding gingers (and using
words like “heck”).
Before our little ball of awesome auburn came along earlier this year, I
worked as a journalist and baked in my spare time. Now there’s a little less writing and the
cake tins are in the cupboard a little longer between stints in the oven. To deal with that, I’m starting this blog and
embarking on what has been christened Esther’s Great Baking Adventure – a
personal challenge to bake something different every week. I’ll be posting recipes and pictures here.
As well as writing and baking, I’ve recently developed a love for
sewing. When I couldn’t find the things
I wanted for the nursery or the nappy bag, I made my own. I discovered other mums wanted some of
the same things, so I started selling them here.
Like a true fifties housewife, I’m always up for multi-tasking and have a million
projects on the go. I’ll keep
you posted but right now I’m off to whip up this week’s baked goods.
Have a great day,
