I’ve come to have a reputation in the family as the provider of cakes, and even with a 7 week old baby that’s a reputation I don’t want to lose! Rustling up goodies during naptimes actually keeps me sane, so as my mother-in-law’s birthday approached I knew I would have to bake her a cake. She loves a lemon drizzle, and I had some frozen blackberries I wanted to use up, so this recipe was perfect.
Well, I’ve been a Mum for 7 weeks now, and and in that 7 weeks I feel I’ve had more time than in the preceding 7 years for reading! That may be hyperbole, but I am finding that wiling away a chapter or two whilst feeding in the nights means I’ve made several trips to the local library for material to keep me going. Why not then add a section for book reviews to the blog? I certainly find reading a treat, a time to get lost in a story, even with the little one having a feeding frenzy on my breast.
