It's raining, it's pouring, I want cake!

I may have mentioned before that I am affected by the weather. If not, I am affected by the weather. If you want me to get things done super-efficiently and with a smile on my face, organise a sunny day with no wind and not too warm. If you want me to be hyper, try a storm or warm weather with a wind... If you want me calm and sympathetic, chilly with patches of sun. If you want me to crave cake like they're about to ban the stuff - RAIN AND GRAY is the way to go.

I have gone nineteen days without adding sugar or eating baked goods. Until today. Today I had a small lemon tart. It was good, sooooooooooooo goooooooood. Like the best ever! But since then, I have been wanting junk, craving food. So I guess I have to get back on the bandwagon, take my weird herbs and try for another nineteen days of abstinence.

I guess I'm trying to blame the shoddy weather for my lapse. But I guess it also had to do with the free coupon, the jazz band, the festive feel of the mall, the fact that Monkey was really well-behaved and it's what I do.

When it rains, I feel down. I feel down, I want cake. I get cake and coffee... I feel better. Now to work out a replacement for the cake.


  1. Well then it is a good thing you're not in Wellington at the moment, you'll be craving cake every second day about :-).

    And oh wow, that cake picture you have...

  2. You'll have to give me your hints for laying off the sugar. I've found it impossible thus far.

  3. Hugs x The weather is my mood barometer too x

    That cake does looks scrumptious!
