|Here's some cupcakes I made earlier|
So this morning wasn't a great start to my week, this weather is just awful and my car (or the Valentine Limo as I like to call it, due to the fact only I and my husband can drive in my immediate family, therefore the 'limo' is called upon to perform various duties - moving house, transporting children or pets, shopping trips . . .) is knackered. Its booked in at the mechanics on Wednesday but its not looking promising. Sadly the older the car is, the more it costs to run. I sometimes feel like I'm driving the Toyota equivalent of a Hummer with the amount of petrol the car seems to guzzle!
So what has brightened up my day? Well to start with, I have won my first giveaway from fellow Blogger Primp and Preen. I can't wait for my parcel to arrive! I'm going to have to think long and hard about doing my own giveaway - maybe something shoe inspired or possibly a Blackpool-themed giveaway with some Blackpool rock part of the gift.
The second thing to brighten up my day, was when I found out that today was the start of National Cupcake Week! It runs from today until 19th September. I can't think of a more perfect excuse to indulge in one of my favourite food groups! How will you be celebrating the week?
