News Flash: Thunder wakes Deafinitely Girly

Deafinitely Girly is not sleeping at the moment. Not sure why this is exactly but it's very frustrating.

I go to bed, I lie there, I count sheep, I think non-stimulating happy thoughts, I say 'om...'

OK, I don't do the last bit, but I do do the other bits.

Anyway, on Saturday night, I actually did get to sleep at a reasonable hour, much to my relief. Until...


BOOM, rumble, rumble...

Something woke me up! Something actually woke me up.

BOOM, rumble, rumble, rumble...

I was so shocked to be woken that I lay awake, heart pounding, trying to work out what it was.

And then, after one more BOOM, rumble, rumble, I realised it was a massive storm.

I got up, just in time to see a huge flash of lightening.

BOOM, rumble, rumble…

And peeked out of my bedroom window, pressing my ear to the glass, I could just about hear the rain. Then...

Boom, rumble, rumble...

Argh

I would not recommend having your ear pressed up against glass when thunder occurs. It was kinda like hearing through a megaphone!

With all this racket going on at 5.30am, I decided little sleep would get done, so made a cup of tea and sat in bed drinking it, counting one hippopotamus, two hippopotamus, after each lightening strike to see how many miles away the storm was. At one point it was just one hip away!

So it's not surprising I felt slightly groggy yesterday, and still feel a bit groggy today.

My weekend, was to be fair, an action-packed whirlwind of creativity and culture, with baking with NikNak, craft with um... me, and a trip to the Tate Modern followed by cocktails at the Southbank with Miss K.

The giant cupcake, NikNak and Country Boy 1's top tier, has been practised… twice, and it's actually not looking too bad! Although I'm now wondering if my inability to sleep is somehow connected to licking the beaters every time I made buttercream icing...

Sugar high?

Hmmm maybe a little!

But now it's done, and I've perfected the art of spiral-piped buttercream, I'm feeling more prepared for my role as wedding baker.

Hmmm, yes...

Deafinitely Girly, wedding baker...

I like it!
