I do like enjoying life and eating cake – don’t you?  Anyone who knows me soon realises that I might sometimes eat chocolate, that I never eat sweets but I could not possibly live without cake!

Enjoying life and eating cake

Whatever adventures Monkey and I have been on, we are often to be found devouring a piece of cake at some point during the day.

I have joked before that I really should conduct a serious survey of Coffee and Walnut cake across the country’s National Trust properties.  I certainly find it hard to pass up the opportunity to try another slice!

Before we set off for Cornwall at the start of the holidays, I decided to finally invest in a DSLR.  I’d been saving up my pennies for a while, and using some vouchers I finally took the plunge.  Cake was definitely in order as I tried and failed to memorise the instruction booklet!

I can feel a camera course will be an investment at some point so I can really get to grips with my new toy.  My memory is appalling these days, yes old age is setting in fast! Which brings me on nicely (sort of!!) to enjoying life and eating cake for my birthday on Sunday.

In the last two weeks we’ve got blown away on Polzeath beach, watched Daddy P fly a kite (finally) at Trevone, walked for miles at various National Trust properties and watched Monkey pedal his bike for the very first time!

Magic moments, special memories, family time, milestone moments.

Simple pleasures make me happy. Enjoying life and eating cake could well be my motto. How about you?

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply.
