** LSNED Update**

Wow, I didn't realise how behind I was in blogging my LSNED! So here we go:
Lesson number 11: This could be the start of a new relationship!
I am referring to cake making here! I made Adam's birthday cake for his party, this is only the second celebration cake I have ever made and I think I am hooked! I really enjoyed making it (after nearly giving up half way through, then re-connecting with the whole thing!).
Lesson number 10: I am a very messy cook!!
I managed to make a mess while making cupcakes etc, there was icing sugar everywhere - including all over the kettle!

Lesson number 9: I get sick in September!
After looking back through my LSNED 09 album I realised that I was ill last September too!

Lesson number 8: I can't resist buying little people outfits!
After nursing sickness in the morning we decided to wrap up warm and stop moping about, so we went out for a stroll. We ended up popping into Next which is a bit lethal really and I ended up buying lots of cute things for the little ones! Some of it has been put away for Christmas though!

Lesson number 7: A pretty tablecloth takes the attention away from DIY in need!
I brought a new wipe-clean tablecloth to try and protect our poor table from messy little ones, once it was on the table it seemed to brighten up that end of the kitchen and the DIY-in-need seemed less obvious!

Lesson number 6: A new do makes all the difference!
I decided on impulse to get my hair coloured and I feel like the 'old me' again. I haven't had my hair coloured since before I had the little people!!!!

Phew, I got there!!! Will share more later!!

Wow, your hair looks fabulous! Getting mine done always gives me a lift too - tho I actually hate going to the hairdressers because I get so fidgety.

Your cake decorating is jaw- droppingly good if this is the second one you've ever done. You could sell a cake like that :)

Wow Rachel.....that cake is stunning...I can see a new business starting there.
Love your hair...I'm off to the hairdressers this week....but just for a cut.
Just love the way you're doing your pages....definately some ideas to 'steal' there.

I've been admiring your pages on the forum so I hadn't realised you were behind with blogging them either lol!

You look gorgeous, that's a great hairstyle on you. And your cake looks stunning - that was your second ever??? Definitely a business opportunity here! xx
