- My debut at Sleep is for the Weak’s writing workshop 17th June on the subject of “feeling unwelcome”;
- Meet and Greet for Cybermummy at Mummy’s Shoes
I was going to squeeze in my entry to the Sticky Fingers’ “Gallery” photography competition (pictures from Ted’s party) but I’ll hold back on that for a couple of days because it’s 1.30am already and I am caving into both weakness and sleep soon.

Matcha Chocolate Giveaway – There’s still time to enter!
Before I give you my writing workshop entry, there’s time to tell you that UK readers can still enter the Matcha Chocolate Giveaway from my Turkish Delight chocolate cake post up until midnight BST Sunday 20th June. Good luck!
faithy, the baker says

I love that you have a cupcake apron! 😛

I'm off to Cybermummy too and anyone who loves cakes is my kind of person, so hope you'll come and say hello!
I'm going to CyberMummy too and I love that there will be lots of different types of blogger there – I'm an internet geek and an ex-home educator so I don't completely fit the mummyblogger profile either! Will look forward to meeting you.
I love this photo. It says 'slightly unhinged 1950s housewife only getting by on a stiff drink' to me. And yes, I actually mean that as a compliment! It's very charming 🙂
Don't worry about the blogging mums. I'm sure you'll fit in!

Good luck with the conference and the writing. I enjoyed reading this one. You are always a welcome visitor in my little corner of the world!
Oh don't worry you'll do just fine. And if anyone is not happy, well no macaroons (with feet) for them! I love your natural style of writing, it really pulls your readers in!
P.S. Love the cupcake apron!
So good, Sarah. I've felt those same ghastly feelings and applaud you for sticking through it before launching elsewhere to do what you love. 🙂 I hope you have a grand time at the conference knowing that you matter to lots of us. 🙂
Josie @Sleep is for the Weak says
Anyone that makes cupcakes is my kind of person. Will look forward to meeting you at Cybermummy 🙂
Thanks for your workshop post!

Great post – I never knew that about you. About being a fashion student. You are a lady of many talents! Don't worry about Cybermummy – we can hold each others hands!
Stacey Fisher and Natashka Goolsby says
Thanks for the feedback on the Lemon cake, Sarah. Hope you have a fun time at Cybermummy!
It is definitely nice to 'see' you again. Hopefully Cybermummy will be nothing like that. I do love reading your posts – you have a great way with words.

Oh my, a fashion designer to boot, (with cakes and all else!). Superb. You knowm feeling unwelcome can make us bitter or not…..I know what path you chose! Have fun at cybermummy!!! I've been meaning to start a mummy's blog, even have the domain but…one blog is enough, for now!!!!!
I had been worrying that I'm a niche too far – I certainly don't know any of the other bloggers and as a home educator and ex-geek ;), I thought I'd be one of a kind. Then I tweeted that and met ellamost 🙂 Guess I'm saying quite a lot of us are nervous and afraid we won't fit in, so we just have to remember that when we're there irl.
I'm loving your blog… and loving your post about feeling unwelcome. There's nothing worse than feeling like a total billy no mates at a big gathering where everyone else seems to know each other. It's happened to me on numerous occasions and I usually pretend to be enormously interested in my mobile phone.
I'm really hoping the Cybemummy conference will be a supportive and fun day – I don't know a soul and have only been blogging for a few months.
You'll be able to spot me looking awkward in a corner accompanied by my ever faithful and friendly pink iPhone 😉
