I’ve borrowed a phrase from a lovely twin mum friend of mine (actually it’s the name of her blog which you can visit here – it has some great recipes on it by the way) for the title of this blog post.
You see the thinking is that activities such as baking encourage people to get into a state of ‘flow’. This basically means that a person immerses themselves in an activity which is totally absorbing to them and leaves them neither bored nor anxious. However, I think there should be a caveat applied here – baking can help you get into ‘flow’ and therefore be totally present AS LONG AS SMALL CHILDREN ARE NOT AROUND!!!!!
You see recently was the first time I attempted to bake something with ALL 3 of the kids ‘helping’.
Yes it got messy, and no, just for the record, I didn’t get into ‘flow’.
Still 3 out of 4 of us (you will see 1 tot opted out in the end!) had great fun and I didn’t even mind that my home ended up in a total mess…. AGAIN 🙂
