Pistachio, Cardamon & yogurt... It was soooo yummy & moist. Yes im healthy eating but there aint nothing wrong with a treat every now and then & i just can not resist my mums cakes.
I haven't changed my diet to much really, just less takeaways and i have started eating breakfast, which i have NEVER done. The thought of eating in the morning made me feel sick, so I have been waking up earlier to give myself abit of time to wake up so i don't feel so icky.
My Nana bought my mum nice lovely Jaimie Oliver cake stand which is simply gorgeous, and just what mummy needed.
Been on bed rest today as i have a poorly leg :( I should really stay off it all week but i have a great weekend planned and the weathers going to be beautiful.
