A full inbox…
Sometimes I wake up and life has let me know that (life’s been going on whilst I sleep,) my inbox is incredibly full with emails, meeting appointments, bills, you know the drill.
Some of these might come from the Giaff blog, some from my (upcoming) family holiday to Hong Kong at Christmas, others from my school/culinary studies, work projects (more up and coming soon,) friends and life in general.
A week or so back, life got a little busier than usual. Hit with a head cold for a couple of days, I missed my tests at school, had a few days off from work and suddenly woke up and discovered that I was about three weeks behind everyone else, (which is not a good feeling.)
I also discovered in my recent pastry classes that it is difficult to turn a ball of choux pastry into a swan. On my first attempt those swans looked a lot more like Natalie Portman’s character at the end of that Black Swan film.
Along the way though, a couple of wonderful things have happened! I was featured as a photographer on Instagram to the tune of many followers later, (hi to all the fellow #instagrammers) and somewhere, the years have passed in a whirl and it was our unofficial 5 yr anniversary. (I say unofficial because we’re not married but officially we feel like we’ve been together from the moment we met! Which was at a party on the closing night of a Gilbert & Sullivan opera if you must know…)
A wise person once told me that life gets truly busy. She also mentioned that your inbox will always be full.
Hopefully your inbox will always be filled with delicious things to eat and why not some Profiteroles for a start and if we’re lucky (there might be a swan too….)
