A really good dessert quote

“Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the Titanic who waved off the dessert cart.” – Erma Bombeck

I read this off a blog I was following. Brilliant is it not?

It does make me throw caution into the wind and grab an ice cream as well as a chocolate bar! Will always remember this quote whenever I feel lousy about not being able to have desserts.

The Dream

Jerome and I had a little bedtime chat yesterday. Told him I had a chat with an ex-colleague who resigned to pursue her dreams; taking up a Patisserie course in the famous Le Cordon Bleu, London for 6 months. He held my hands and asked me if that is what I would love to do. I was not too sure if I would pursue a career in Patisserie; but what I do know is I do love the smell of cakes baking in the oven, the satisfaction of seeing my family members relish in the cakes that I baked.

We made it a life goal; to take a sabbatical when Sarah is older to travel to London together for 3 months to see the world, for me to take a short patisserie course and for him to take a break and to concentrate on his investments. As he drifted off to sleep; I looked out the window and realized that would be a beautiful dream that could turn into a reality.

Perhaps one day; we would move our One Fine Home to England for a short escapade from this world.

That would be a dream come true.
