It’s been one heck of a day. Wait – let me rephrase that… It has been one heck of a week.

Between running over a bed of screws, being stranded and carless in the pouring rain with 2 littles, learning that my dog has blood in her stool, my daughter falling off the climber at the school and sustaining a concussion… to getting the doctors consent for her to return to school on strict physical activity restrictions, only for her to then be hit in the head by a baseball 30 minutes after returning to school. Oh and did I mention when I picked her up from school the receptionist noticed nits in her hair? Yea… I’d be the Momma over here waving her white flag.

I’m so over this week. So over it. I can’t even being to tell you.

I’ve been finding comfort in food. Specifically sweets.

One of my favourite indulgences is a Snickerdoodle Mug CakeIt is prepared using Gay Lea Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Spreadables. AND – more importantly it is oh-so-yummy! Especially when topped with a bit of Gay Lea Real Coconut Whipped Cream.
