Reasons to be cheerful

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?

May I just say how much I enjoy your blog! I'm new to the world of blogging and found yours simply through liking your profile pic on another blog you're a fan of!
Also the fact that I own one of the pairs of shoes you have in your main picture (the pale pink topshop t-bars (from, what, 5 or 6 years ago??) meant I had to check it out.
Keep up the good work! xx

Vintage Sparkle - thanks for the lovely comments and yes I got those pale pink shoes from Top Shop about six years ago from York!
