A lot of excitement...



My life is in the jet stream at the moment and thoughts come tumbling out of my head at a million miles an hour.

Among other things, my life has lately included the following:

  • Stepping onto the property ladder

We're about to fall heavily into debt - expecting to exchange later this week, we're soon going to own our own little spot on earth. And I cannot wait! Anything to get me out of the current horrible kitchen! Speaking of kitchens...

  • Optomen TV has asked me to create some video blogs

Soon to be shown on UKTV Food, a new show called Market Kitchen is going to be aired on a daily basis from the Borough Market. They're teaming up with a number of UK Food Bloggers to feature a segment called Food Tube. My submissions so far can be viewed at D.D.TV.

  • Cupcakes are coming out of my ears!

And I'm loving them! A friend of mine and myself have started a new little company called Daydream Cupcakes. Our first venture out will be at a local farmers' market in Impington on the 21st of April. I've also got a new blog up and running mostly detailing my recipe development but it will soon show ordering details and where they will be available... Hopefully (fingers crossed) on a regular basis.

  • Allotment anticipation

Another friend of mine, her husband and I have all gone in for an allotment together! Today we spent 3 hours turning and digging the soil. The dirt is excellent with few brambles and loads of busy worms. We're hoping to have the spuds in soon - once we've worked out how to chit them. I dream of eating fresh vegetables on the day of picking and relishing in the therapy of it all. Have I gone mad?

All this and more - a milestone birthday for Dan is about to be celebrated, a writing competition has been entered into, a review of a local fish & chip shop has been submitted to Olive magazine and work is going through a busy time.

And I'm still enjoying myself! Well, why wouldn't I? Life is fabulous and things are looking good. Now I'm off to bake a carrot cake to celebrate... ;)

blimey you have been busy! Good luck with the various ventures - most interested to hear of your cupcake seeling activity as I have been harbouring a similar idea myself only the thought of health and safty and the lack of much cooking ability put me off! :-)

Blimey indeed - that all sounds like fabulous news, Bonnie!

Big congratulations winging their way from California...

Julia said...

Wow, how exciting!

I may be joining you on Market Kitchen too - I'm a fellow UK food blogger - so 'hi' and maybe we'll cross paths at some point.

All the best, Julia

Whew Bonnie!! Where do you find the time - or the energy?! I'm very impressed. Congratulations on the cupcake business and best of luck with all the other ventures :) Although having seen and heard myself on video, I don't know if I'll be rushing to post a video of myself cooking :P

Watched the video. Very impressed. Good luck with all future ventures Bonnie. Mx

Congratulations! It is truly exciting to be a homeowner, a grower, and a creator of fab cupcakes. I'd love to watch the video, would it be posted online?

All the best to you and Dan.

Thank you all for your wonderful well wishes! It sure has been an exciting time but somehow I'm kinda looking forward to it all settling down a little bit...
