Nine years ago I sat down to write my first blog post and shortly afterwards this little space was born. In those years my life has changed so dramatically. The regimen and accountability of blogging helped me learn and challenge myself, connect with new people and experience things I never thought I'd imagine. 

I have decided that the time has come to move on from Home Baked. For many reasons, it has become a cause for stress rather than sanctuary. Aside from the changing world of blogging is a friend who cuts me off mid-sentence because she thinks she knows everything there is to know from reading online or the family members who never speak to me but visit here on a regular basis. I have been trying really hard to make it work but I feel uncomfortable here now and so for these, and many other, reasons I'm moving on.

Thank you for visiting my little corner of the web. Thank you for sharing in our days - both joyful and sad. Thank you for your encouraging, welcoming words and generosity.  Your encouragement and support has spurred me on to be a better mother and person in general. I have learnt so much and will always remember these years warmly.

I'm not completely disappearing - for the foreseeable future you'll still be able to find me over on The Knit and probably some social media channels, too. If there's a recipe, book or tutorial you wanted to know about but didn't manage to save/print then feel free to email me and I'll do my best to find it for you.

Best wishes to you all
