More Cookies?...

No one's complaining~ *giggle*
Its been 2 days full of baked goodies and lingering scents of sugar and spice throughout our classrooms. I know I havn't exactly been updating frequently enough recently; but this weekend has been extremely packed for Su. It's difficult to get my photos on here and to put aside some time to talk about the many things we've made the past week of Petit fours.

I guess it's also valentines day..and everyone had plans or were making plans to celebrate. Personally; I'm not the biggest fan of valentines day. Call me a cynic but I don't think there should be a specific day a year set aside to show someone you care. It can be valentines day EVERYday if you want it to be. I feel corporations and a portion of the shallow minded community have taken advantage of this 'special' day to make more $$ and receive more presents/gifts. *shrug* Don't get me wrong; I'm not trying to be bitter, I just have the impression that valentines day is all about the chocolate and flowers more than its true meaning.
The NotterSchool had Valentines day candy bags for us; I thought it was a sweet of them.... kinda made me feel like I was in play school though. *laughs*
Oh~ Something cool happened last Saturday back in Oz-land! My humble little journal was featured on the Sydney Morning Herald! How cool~ *yay*

Woah! Having your blog in the paper is so awesome. Those cookies from the last two posts look absolutely dee-lish! This past fortnight I've been unable to bake for one reason or another and seeing your blog and all the yummy pictures has totally stressed me out. I need to bake! Keep those pictures coming, doll! You're doing fab!

Oh sweetarts. Now I'm homesick. Yep, Valentine's Day, Halloween, you name it...very commercialised holidays. But you know what they all have in common; they're fun! I say enjoy and don't worry about it;)
