There's a lot of reasons why I haven't kept up with this blog. I have been busy having a baby and getting my head around the idea of having an 18 year old, a 12 year old and a one year old. That feels like a lot of parenting sometimes and it can be really hard to feel okay about how I'm doing. Everything seems okay today so far so that will be enough for now.
Another reason is I felt pretty weird about people I knew reading my blog. I don't mind people I don't know reading it. This worried me and so I put it aside. But I guess it says something about me and a certain fear of being myself, I've always felt this and I know everyone struggles with it to some extent. I'd like to try again and this time try and write without fear and know that it's all good when you genuinely express yourself fom the heart. And so here we go, with no rules this time. (well less anyway)
A carrot cake I made for my 18 year old who just had chicken pox. We are still waiting for the other two to get it.
It's a good recipe, really easy, but needs more spice and I like pineapple in my carrot cake but Mia didn't want it. Also I should have been less lazy and chopped the walnuts I added before I put them in. The cream cheese icing has vanilla in it but I wonder if some lemon would have been an improvement. Still a good one, recipe here.
