It's All Gone A Bit Cupcake!

OK well I think it's now verging on an obsession...cake....well cupcakes to be exact. I've always loved making them, and sometimes they get iced if they are around long enough before I eat them.

Over the summer I had Becky's Purple Sparkle Crafts cupcakes in stock, which were just amazing - the bead studio always had a lovely aroma and these proved popular with the customers too!

So it was no surprise that one of my Chistmas presents this year was this gorgeous Radley bag with cupcakes on! How fabulous!
And then of course I happen across these tea towels whilst out shopping yesterday, which I have of course dedicated to my pink themed utility room.
Cupcakes everywhere! I wish!

Snow Days

What a weird week! Snow, Ice, uncertainty on travel conditions including both Severn bridges being shut, and still getting over a nasty chest infection. Normality and routine are nowhere in sight!

The chooks woke up to this, and refused to step outside for any food, which just resulted in me feeling extremely sorry for them and making them porridge in their eglu or should that be igloo!

I had been following the snow events on Twitter, which was fascinating to see the use of the #uksnow tag and the amazing Ben Marsh who created a real time map of where it was snowing - brilliant - I love Twitter!
