Kinda like “Still Dre” but with more cake – I am still me.
I am still here.
While it’s true that I have not had the energy or desire to bake in the last six weeks, I still think about it. I’m so used to shopping weekly for blocks and blocks of rectangular pounds of butter, flats of eggs and cartons of heavy cream.
I am recovering well from my surgery – and I am, to use a very strange and onomatopoeic word, utterly FLABBERGASTED at the amount of kindness, well wishes, sweet words, uplifting power vibes, love and good energy from so many wonderful friends, family, blog readers, strangers… it has truly lifted my spirits. I’ve watched more TV and Julia Roberts movies than I can bear right now (not quite – give me a more perfect movie than Pretty Woman please!?? No, you can’t)… and lying around has seriously started hurting my bum.
So yes. I am still here. I’ll be posting some cakes in the coming weeks too, ones I haven’t yet had a chance to post. Keeping the blog alive, a light sprinkle of blogging here and there. Right now I am SO keen to have this whole cancer bullshit over with so I can move on, regain my physical strength, and work up my mind, body and spirit to get back to my precious cake book!!!, to my life, to having a carefree picnic with my husband and son, a massive spread of delicious snacks and the sun on our faces. I am willing that time to come.
So thank you for being my crutches, my cane. The tender words to hold me up. I’m grateful for every word, every gesture!
Still Coco Cake – still Dre. Still here!
