AN APOLOGY

You may have noticed a distinct lack of posts here this month. This post makes it a grand total of one for May so far. I'm sorry about that, but I promise you that I have good reason. I know I don't blog as much as I used to; in fact, I'm well aware of my lazy nature and how I've not been replying to comments or involving myself in the blogging community as much as I used to. 

Here's why:

I recently started a new full-time job and, truth be told, I'm absolutely knackered. I'm currently combining my love for baking and making money at the same time, and it's so satisfying to create products and sell them. I mean, people buying food that I've made and stopping by to say how much they've enjoyed it is literally one of life's greatest pleasures. It's also the hardest I've ever worked. Seriously, I ache all over but I'm determined to be a bakery queen! At the moment I'm still working weekends so I can be properly trained up but I'm hoping that once it's all done I'll be working Monday-to-Friday like a normal full-time stooge. Well, I say normal... Waking up every day at 4:30am for a 5:30am shift is not normal, neither is the amount of coffee I've consumed. I have to say though I am getting used to it, slowly but surely, and I don't know why I ever complained about an 8am shift now - so silly! Plus, I'm done and dusted by 2:30pm, which means I get the entire afternoon and evening to myself - pretty lovely now it's coming up to the summertime. This basically means that once I'm used to a routine I can get my blog up and running again - I've got to take advantage of the amazing bright weather, right?

So readers, thank-you for sticking with me regardless. I really hope I can sort out my priorities and get some sort of blogging schedule going once I've sorted my full-time hours out properly. And this is my temporary-unexplained-hiatus somewhat explained. The work/life balance is hard - I don't know how some of you bloggers get everything done and still have time to breathe!
