This is how my life runs..I want to make a special cake and a muffin for this blog. I was thinking about that for the whole day. Then the next day, i woke up early, fed maha, prepared breakfast, after finishing breakfast, washed up the dishes, put maha to nap, prepared lunch, by which time lil one woke up, fed her again, had lunch, washed up the dishes again. Put maha to nap again, then finally decided to bake those goodies, before that i just laid on the bed thinking what to do! I felt like lying in the bed never felt this good and fall asleep instantly. When i woke up, maha is awake and sunlight has gone(LIGHT IS MUST FOR PHOTOGRAPHY).I feel like OH GOD, lets do that tomorrow(already 4 days passed like this! If you want to know what i decided to bake, it is a lemon drizzle cake and cranberry white chocolate muffins...
