Yes, I’m still alive…



… and terribly sorry for being so slack as of late with this blog! It has been eight weeks, yep, eight weeks, since I have last updated Butter Sugar Flour and after reading all the “where are you?” emails I have received from you wonderful readers, I thought I had better explain why it’s been so long since I had made something delicious and shared it with you.

In the last two months I have started a new full-time job working at Yellow Pages (take that GFC!) and gone back to study marketing at university part-time in the evenings. Studying whilst working full-time is never an easy task, but I never anticpated the course to be so demanding both mentally and physically and to take up so much of my “spare” time but it certainly has. With my new commitments, I have to juggle work, study, exercise, time with friends and family and time for fun things like photography and baking. My DSLR is literally gathering dust in the corner of my bookshelf and I can’t even remember the last time I even turned the oven on to whip up a cake or a batch of biscuits. I think I’ve even forgotten how to do it! I have promised myself that I will get stuck into it come Easter time when I am on my mid-semester break.

Apologies my friends, I will be back on board soon!
