It's such a relief now my sister's wedding is over- free-time wise that is. Not only was I part of the bridal party I- get this- volunteered to make her cake despite never having made a wedding cake before, or indeed ever icing any cake at all before. Youtube was extremely informative and after 1 or 2 practice runs I was (overly) confident it would all work out. Hahaha. I almost kicked it down the garden amidst the stress and frustration two days before the wedding. Somehow (well, I did dump a tier) it actually worked out! Good old ribbon-around-the-base trick.
Much too lazy to edit out the facebook URL. Anyway, hurray but never again. Unbelievably stressful and time consuming.
Moving on - I kept up with gym news but was unable to properly follow actual competitions. Even Pan Ams passed me by in a tired daze of recovery. On the plus side, the time to Glasgow which I am attending is really flying by! I'm really looking forward to getting back into the swing of things watching competition-wise and actually blogging, with Asian Championships and US Classics looming. Speaking of Glasgow - seeing as the last day of competition in Glasgow is falling on Hallowe'en, myself and my boyfriend will be dressing up for the arena. As 70's Nadia and Bela naturally. Feel free to say hello!
70's malnourished Nadia but 90's Bela for that white-haired roguish recognisability, obviously.
