R.I.P Robin WilliamsI am totally stunned by the news of the passing of Robin Williams. I don't normally get very emotional about celebrities but I really am upset and shaken by this, lots of tears today.
He was and will always remain a legend in so many ways. I grew up watching him in one of my favourite Disney movies as a kid, Aladdin and of course Jumanji, Hook, Mrs Doubtfire and so many other movies, he was so diverse I loved his comedy and serious roles. Even if I didn't like a particular movie he starred in very much he would always be awesome and would make it worth watching as he had such a great and unique voice and wonderful energy and talent.
This morning the kids and I watched Robots, the first movie of his I could find as our little tribute to him.
R.I.P Robin Williams, you will be sorely missed.
10 years of DA!That's right! Back on August 10th 2004 I joined Deviantart after an online friend showed me the site. At first I joined to submit my sketches and poems, most of which have long been deleted because they were so bad! Over the years I have tried so many art genres (some still remain in my gallery in various folders) before falling in love with baking and food photography a few years ago.
I know I have been rather quiet on here over the past year, I'm still battling my demons of depression and anxiety, which has got so much worse since losing my Grandma in May. I have now got to the point where I am considering medication as I feel so ill all the time, the physical stress of anxiety and depression on my body makes me so tired and lightheaded all the time which means I have no energy or interest in baking or doing anything that involves a lot of walking around or being on my feet a
HolidaysThe six weeks holidays will be starting at the end of this week, that means I will be going rather quiet again on DA as I will have both kids at home with me so will have less time for DA.
Everyone have a wonderful summer, keep up the good work and I will be back properly again the beginning of October once everything is sttled down with the new school year to catch up on everyone's uploads and messages. If you have any baking questions head on over and ask them on my facebook page where I receive notifications of messages on my phone so can get back to you a lot quicker as the kids will probably be hogging the laptop most days watching videos of Frozen on YouTube constantly.
Hello Internet!As the title suggests, after 3 weeks being offline due to moving, we have the internet back.
We pretty much settled in straight away, the kids love the new house and we managed to unpack everything fairly quickly, mostly due to a lot of our stuff going into storage, only taking essential things to the current house. My dad has almost finished work on the old house so we will be putting it on the market over the next couple of weeks. After that it will be a waiting game to sell so we can then look for a bigger, better house.
Our current kitchen is tiny, as is the house. We have the fridge, tv, computer and dryer all next to each other in the living room. We also had to get rid of one of our sofas and do a lot of rearranging to get everything to fit in. Apart from that and some random problems with the house the landlord needs to sort out we really like it here. It is very quiet and has has all the essentials so makes for perfect temporary accomm
UpdateHello everyone! It's been a long time since I've been on DA to speak to anyone or to post many things. Today I can tell you why.
Firstly, a month ago my Grandma was admitted to hospital where they discovered she was very ill. After being discharged from hospital she went into a care home. Pretty much every day I took the kids in to see her, Grandma was always very happy yo see us as she was such a proud grandmother/great grand mother who had so much love and bought so much joy to those around her. She sure was a fighter, the last time I saw her was Tuesday morning, that afternoon she was gone. Now, my wonderful Grandma, a huge part of my life and big influence as to how a human being should behave, kind, gentle, loving and caring has been reunited with my Grandpa after twenty years apart and soon will be laid to rest next to him.
Here I share with you my most treasured photo of her and the only decent photo of all my family together taken on our wedd
Tagged!Firstly, thank you everyone for the Birthday wishes! I am one of these people who love everyone elses birthdays as I get to buy/make then presents and treats but hate the attention my own brings! Saying that, it turned out to be a good day! I spent the morning baking (No I didn't make myself a cake or get a cake) for my best friend and his girlfriend who are moving house so it's a little gift to them. I also did a photoshoot of the same baked treats. In the afternoon we went to the coffee shop for a hot chocolate but I ended up just getting a gluten free brownie which was amazing instead. From my husband I got the collectors special edition box set of Sherlock, Metallica's Through The Never (which gave me goosebumps watching it! Loved it) I also got a "I am SHER locked" t shirt and some chocolates. Lets not talk about the huge hideous Orchid my husband also got me.
Anyway on with the tagging from my best friend!

Hello!Hello everyone! How are you all doing?
You may or may not have noticed I have gone a little quiet here on DA lately so thought I would give you a little update on the reason for my semi absence and why my inbox is full of new things to look at!
Firstly, just after Christmas I found out we can move house in a couple of months. Not only will we be moving house once this year but twice! (long story) Anyway, since then I have spent most of the time sorting out the entire house and there is so much more that needs to be done!
Secondly, my anxiety is pretty bad, I think I may suffer from SAD also which is making it a lot worse. I am low, don't really want to go out, do any of my hobbies, I am always tired and just have no energy for anything. Thinking about it I get it every year as I am just a completely different person in winter than in summer but never has it been so bad as it is now. Anxiety can make

a dangerous hallucinationThe light coming through the window was bright,
much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised
as a riot of butterflies
and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
