A Short Announcement

I mentioned in my previous post that I have secured a new permanent job. It's a very exciting time for me as I feel like I've worked very hard to get to this point! It's a very exciting opportunity and it's a permanent job which will offer some stability. To mark this milestone, I am taking a 3 month break and will start my new job in Feb 2013. I've been really busy recently as you can probably imagine with sorting, packing and moving. Most of my stuff is now in storage and I am about to embark on a very exciting journey around the world which will take me to Europe, Asia and Australia. 

I have quite a few posts to schedule for November as I had one day of frenzied baking before I packed all my beloved baking equipment. I will also still host AlphaBakes in December so do send in your entries! I may be tweeting at odd times as I will be halfway round the world and may be a little slow in visiting your blogs so I apologise in advance. Being the bakingaddict that I am, I will probably find the opportunity to bake as some of my travels is to visit family so don't be too surprised if you see baking in a variety of kitchens! I've actually packed a few baking related items into my suitcase!! :)
