How it all began...

I remember the moment where it all started. I'd just woken up with the daunting thought of today is the day… for baking the family gingerbread house. A tradition I'd started in the family when my eldest was about 3 years old. Trying to get the house to stay upright long enough for my children's Christmas party was an absolute nightmare! But one, like many other mums, I persevered with to create such wonderful, happy, childhood memories for my children of telling stories around our lovely Gingerbread house, amazingly decorated by the children, gently lit by candlelight. Using their teddies and toys as puppets we would re-create versions of Hansel and Gretel, The Three Bears and Little Red Riding Hood stories to a completely hushed group of transfixed children. Wonderful, simple family memories.

Creative solution...

Fretting over the day ahead a picture of pure inspiration suddenly appeared in my mind. A completely novel way of constructing the house. I set too and baked it how I saw it in my head. Hey presto! Normally I would have taken hours to try and get the sides to stick together and to try and stop the roof from collapsing, but with this inspired idea I only took a matter of minutes to make-up my house and the structure was more durable. And with no help. What a relief!

Made in Bath...

Today, seven years on, I live with my two children in our lovely home in Bath where I still treat many of my reflexology clients. With changing circumstances I needed to become financially independent to support myself and my two children. That inspired Gingerbread House idea just wouldn't go away! So Bickie-boo has been born and I really do hope you and your family can have as much delight as I've had with my children over the years. The memory of my young daughter softly putting her hand in mine, looking up at me and whispering, “Mummy, are you going to make a gingerbread house?” Priceless.
