& welcome to my new followers! (not followers in a weird cult like way) It was lovely to check my blog to see my follower numbers had jumped quite a bit, I blog for me mostly, but it's nice to know others are interested!

So, to welcome you all, I made cakes! Please help yourselves :-)

My posting has been very sporadic & slightly boring lately. This is partly due to the Easter holidays & feeling a bit down in the dumps. I think I just need some sunshine, sunshine makes everything better doesnt it?

I am trying to introduce some positive changes in my life, healthier eating, more exercise, tidier, more organised home, more creative time for me. My head feels very jumbled right now. Im trying to let go of a great deal of negativity & focus on the positives, which isnt blooming easy! But Im perservering, I will get there.

Im planning on a blog makeover, as I feel like it needs freshening up, like a bit of a spring clean. I've been spending lots of times reading blogs that are super inspiring, taking note of the aspects I love about them & trying to figure out how to incorporate them into my little space.

What are your favourite blogs? What is it you love about them?



  1. Hello! The blog is lovely, though I am new reader. And those cakes look totally scrumptious. I know what you mean by feeling a lack of creativity and the need for something new. I gave my blog some time last week and really felt better for it. Hope the sun shines soon, this rain is totally uninspiring isn't it?

  2. Congrats on the new followers.. my blog calls them "members" which I think is a more positive name for "friends".. your cupcakes look SOOOOO yummy! I agree, my blog needs a Spring "tune up".. wonder what to do? My favorite blogs are on my list.. and you're one of them! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Heloooo from a new followers.

    Isn't it nice to log in and find new people to make friends with? I can relate to 'lost mojo'. I'm always losing mine. Luckily he does come back pretty quickly with some lovely new ideas.

    Hmm, I think my blog could do with a little spring clean too. Time to go stalking ;)

  4. Hello! Just to let you know I've given you the Sunshine Award. Details at mine if you want to join in.
