This, is not easy! I admit, I thought it will be a piece of a cake. When I first heard about walk all over cancer, I said ‘I do 10000 steps every day anyway!’ – No I don’t. On a work day – easy, on a day off, my lazy me doesn’t want to do any steps. So I had to mute the voice of my lazy self for now, and move my body of the sofa.
Last two days I took Ben and Eva for a walk, and to the park. I made my steps, they had some fun, and I’ve made some nice pictures of pretty flowers. I hope you will like it.
And here are my steps, from last two days

It’s my third day of Walking all over cancer from Cancer Research UK. And I must say, as it was my day off work I were struggling a little bit. But I’ve done it! Remember, you can support me, by making a donation to Cancer Research on my challenge page:
Today I signed up for cancer research challenge. It’s called “Walk all over cancer”. Everyday in June I have to walk 10000 steps. Why I want to do this? I’ve been inspired by a friend from work, who is currently fighting breast cancer. I thought, if she is doing this, I can do this too. For her, for my dad, who won his battle few years ago, and because of those family members and friends who lost their battles, I can do at least that.

Since I went back to work time is absolutely flying. Eva is now 8 months old and keeps me busy on my feet. In between working in a greenhouse, decorating cakes and looking after our home, I still try to spend creative, relaxing time with my family. Today though, it’s all about my oldest son – Oliwer…
Earlier this year Oliwer’s mini saga was chosen by YoungWriters association, to be printed in a book, along with talented people from South Yorkshire schools. The book is called – Welcome to Wonderland – South Yorkshire, and just today we recieved our copy of it! I am very proud of my boy! Couldn’t be happier for him. Well done!
So the day has come. My maternity leave is finished and I had to go back to work. Nothing worse for a mum with 6 months old baby…
After a great Easter week spent in my home town in Poland with my nearest and dearest, today was a very hard day for me. It was my first day back at work. And as much as I loved seeing all my work friends again, I didn’t like leaving my little girl in the nursery. I cried on a bus, all of the way to work. Eva though, took it much better than me. She had all careres wrapped around her tiny finger, and she really enjoyed it. Hopefully it will get easier for me soon…
I’ve been very busy recently. I wanted to squeeze all my work in before Easter holidays. It were very important for me, because today, I am going to Poland to see my family! Just a week, but means a lot. My family haven’t met Eva and Paul yet. I want to show Paul my city, and how we celebrate Easter in Poland. I am very excited for that.
Although I have made a lot of cakes last couple of weeks, I want to show you my other artwork, from last week. My bookfold that I have made for my friend. I hope you’ll like it.
Last week, as I were looking for inspirations to decorate a cake, I’ve found a tutorial for quilled wafer paper flower. I am very proud of it, as it was my first wafer paper flower I’ve ever made.
I looked online for some paper quilling pictures, and decided that this is something I could do with my boys. So I checked some tutorials, on how to make the shapes, and I was gently disheartened by them. Every video I have seen started with: “you need quilling paper stripes, special ruler, special needle”… and all the stuff I don’t have. I understand that this is what people use to get the perfect shapes, professional looking pictures, but I just wanted to show it to my kids, and see for myself if I like doing it. So after reading a little I’ve done it my own way.
First I had to cut the paper stripes. I used a thicker paper, the one for creating occasional cards, I have it in many colours. Cutting it may take a long time and is pretty boring, so I used paper shredder. It mafe the procrss a lot quicker. I must say that my 5 years old Ben enjoyed this bit the most. Putting paper in on one side, taking stripes out on the other. Quilling needle? I used a toothpick to roll my stripes on. Boys were simply rolling them in their fingers. The only thing I have, is a ruler with circles, to check if my quilled circles are the right size. I found it in Oliwer’s school stuff. To be honest I didn’t really use it. I didn’t want it to look to complicated for Ben.
Anyway, in the end Ben decided that crumpling paper up is more fun than rolling, and that’s what he did…
