Comp practice one month till the big weekend

In a month I’m competing with my son in a big cooking competition. So been getting my practice on for one of my entrys. Bailey’s cheese cake, with a centre of espresso dark chocolate cremeux, a dark chocolate mirror glaze and will be decorated with chocolate cover roasted coffee beans, Bailey’s cream, a tempered chocolate curls and gold leaf. Starting to get excited. Love glazing desserts brings a sense of satisfaction

I’ve graduated!!!!

Realised I’ve not posted in nearly a month. Life’s been crazy I’ve graduated my course n I’m start my first year of chefs training in February. Can’t wait to share what I’ve been doing. But for now I’m focusing on my babies n hubby n getting my house back in order lol

Damn it

So about 3 or so weeks ago I noticed pain in my lower back on one side, twinges came and went. Started doing stretches etc. Hubbies done training in massage and sports. So helped me. Me being me avoided doctors and still do housework etch. The pain got worse then after a week n a half felt like it was slowly coming right. Then bamn I started getting pains shooting through my leg and the pain worsened. Still trying to suck it up. Then over the past week I’ve had a mix between numbness and pins n needles through my leg n foot. Everyone’s been saying your backs out or its a something pinched nerve. And now sadly I think people have been right. So tomorrow I’ll book in with the doctor. Can’t handle the limping, pain etc, I nearly fell on our stairs today cause of it. So now hopefully doc can fix it quick. I’m job hunting, its hard enough with no qualifications, and being only a part time worker over the years being a full time mama for 13 years, without adding a acc back injury. We need the money and I need to work. I need to be able to take care of my home, children and to be a good wife. Feeling pretty stuck to be honest. Get a job and then head to the docs, go to the docs and risk not being able to get a job. In nz being under acc for something that could prevent me from working at full compacy  will look really bad. I wish I could use my strengths I’ve gained over the years, online selling, running my successful blog etc but sadly its not something that I can include as I have no real proof argh frustrating
