Panadol, Bakin' and Tweakin' ....

Well.... im sick. YUK, blah, real icky kinda sick.I hate being sick...i know i have to rest but geez lousie with an almost 5 year old at home, how is that ever going to be possible? I see you all nodding and saying Oh i hear ya sister! How on earth do women with more than 1 child manage??? Good grief they are worth their weight in gold. Me? im onto my second box of panadol !

Well me being sick put a damper on our night away with Shane for work. Poor Sam, he was pretty bummed about it, he was looking forward to staying in the 'Hometel' i resorted to blackmail (a very useful tool at times) and said we could do whatever he wanted to do (my mind and my aching bones were thinking can he please say he wants to stay in bed all day and watch Tv..????)..well close, he wanted to make a cake, and he was very specific about what sort.Yummy Chocolate with lots of chocolate icing and those millions and hundreds (100's and 1000's) things AND alot more chocolate on top. Phew ok.....
So bake we did. And no i didnt sneeze on it. ICK!

Head Chef Sam crackin the eggs.

The all important job of licking the bowl and the beaters....whilst being watched by cats who are foaming at the mouth and ready to pounce the second you look away...

TA DAAAAA....Anyone for a slice????

I still havent had a piece :(

Ok now i want to show you some pics of my wall. This is the main wall in my kitchen. Im still under the influence of LeAnne with all her 'tweaking' so i blame all this need to re-arrange again, on her. Luv ya chickie!
This was how it used to look.

But I wanted a softer and more feminine look..

I havent trimmed the fabric at the sides yet...still waiting to see what my cats have in store for it....Miss Molly has already discovered the crystal hanging down from the centre...
Oh and dont you just want to throw up at my tiled floor? Its ok you can say YUKK, because i absolutely LOATHE those tiles. I am at the point now of bringing in the jackhammer myself and just going for it ! Anyone want to join me? LOL. BYO jack hammer, I'll supply the chocolate cake!

Just fiddlin' with colours....thats my new Faux Cake i made by the way ( it will be in my store soon).

Ok thats it from me...i'll drag myself out of bed tomorrow for Friday Flea dont forget to pop back!
Im off now to pop some more Panadol.

Love Shann (no kisses today...dont want to spread my germs...)

Oh Shannon poor you I know how you feel. Try and get some rest.
Love what you did with your 'tweaking' but where are you going to eat now???
It sure does look soft and feminine.
That is one yummy looking cake that Chef Sam created.
Take care
