Pumpkin Roll Cake




I am not even going to apologise for the lack of updates since July. On that matter, I will say only the following: my life has changed unbelievably since that last update, and there just hasn't been a single moment in my new life when, much as I love doing it, I have thought; "You know what? I really feel like writing a blog post."


Anyway…

I quit flying!

I know. I can't quite believe it either, but it is true. I gave it up. It was one of the hardest, most horrendous decisions to make of my life. But, an amazing opportunity came my way, at a great organisation here in Cardiff, and I took it.

I work 9-5, in an office, and I have great co-workers. I am learning new things everyday, and I love it. I feel like my new employers took a huge chance on me, and I am determined to make sure they don't regret it!

The change was terrifying, but worth it. I'm stealing this next part from Niki Haris (you might need to Google her), but change is good: "Things that aren't changing aren't growing; things that aren't growing are dying."

So that's why I have been away. I've been busy changing. And it's been amazing.

Oh, and I made a pumpkin roll. Recipe here.

Be back soon. Promise!

  2. Congratulations! Great to hear you’re enjoying the new career.
    The pumpkin roll looks delish, though I always irrationally see roll cakes as too difficult. I think the last one I made was in high school, just a jam roll, and I still chuckle over the boy in class who carefully rerolled his jam covered sponge with the tea towel inside!

  4. Yay! Glad you're enjoying the new job although I imagine the adjustment has been enormous. Do you get to use your Japanese in the new job at all?

  7. Mr P, it's been ages since I made that lovely pumpkin roll. I always cut back on the sugar in both the cake and filling. Yours came out really pretty! I hope you are enjoying your new career!
