I Am still Busy

I am still busy.

From the list of all the things for me to do...I've done....well, may be 30% of it.
And it's 6 days left to complete( the wedding will be on 23Aug, but we're going back a day before, so have to finish a day before that...pheww).

All of u must have been wondering...what am I doing here....while there are still tons of work to be completed...
Well...i need some entertainment too right, besides, i am trying to loosen up my joints after hours in the kitchen (wished I took up yoga- they claimed that it can really loosen up joints :)).


The most challenging part is of course decorating the cookies. I am using royal icing.
To make the challenge even harder, I have to decorate, while Laiqa is around me all the time-her reason- adik nak tolong mama je ni (i just want to help u). She isn't just standing/sitting there, she'll come and hug me from behind (while I was trying to get a smooth intricate line on the cookies), or come clinging at my hand (while I was squeezing the icing to get the right pressure).
And Umar entering the kitchen every 5 minutes to have a peek, only to be chased back out by the irritated mum :).

The cookies have to be completed in a few steps and a few days. The first day-baking. Second- iced the whole cookies, have to left to dry a few hours/overnight. Third- deco with lines/ any detailing and left to dry back again.

So, after finished decorating about 50 pieces of cookies, I left them to dry. I am using the guest bedroom-since there r no guest, and it's not a place where the kids would most probably walk-by.
While I was somewhere else, Umar and the sister, Laiqa went and have a peek in the room. They must have stand very near the edge, as later adik felt onto the cookies....arghh....no........it's not happening... each one of it is like soo precious...... :((

Anyway, let bygone be bygone...I'm baking more today. I guessed to get 150 pieces of cookies...I have to bake 200 minimum (or may be more), to exclude all those incidents.
To make things worst, they kept asking to have a bite...and of course, mummy have to let the kids eat right....and there goes another few pieces.....

Okay...Off I go.... :P
