That explains my tummy rolls! – adventures with Ancestry.com

CoverSo I am trying to lose weight – and failing. After a conversation with my grandmother and a wander through the numerous family history resources at Christchurch City Libraries I discovered my problem –  a genetic weakness for all things sweet.  

According to Ancestry.com at Central Library, my great-great-great grandparents William and Charlotte Bailey were confectioners, owning a bakery and confectionery in Penzance, Cornwall  in England.  This explains why I like to lick the bowl, the stirring spoon… any mixture that may have fallen on the floor… Suffice to say one should not deny one’s own history.

So pass the cupcake love, and don’t spare the icing!!!!
