Versatile Blogger Award

Hi folks - I'm finally back!!

Apologies for not posting for a while but I have been incredibly busy with rehearsals and concerts etc. and I had to have a self-enforced break from Social Media sites and blogging as I know that I would spend too much time there and not enough doing the other things I needed to do.

I'm thrilled to say that, in the meantime, Cupcakes and Cadenzas has been awarded a 'Versatile Blogger Award' by Girls Who Love to Read (Please click on the link to visit this entertaining blog). Thank you so much for this. It's nice to be reassured sometimes that people do read your blog and that all your hard work isn't in vain although I love blogging so much that I would still do it even if no-one read it. Anyway - before I start to sound like Gwyneth Paltrow at The Oscars - there are a few things that you need to do to fulfil the conditions of getting the award.

1. You have to thank the person who gave you the award and link back to their blog - check.

2. You have to share seven facts about yourself - see below - check.

3. You have to send the award on to fifteen other bloggers whose blogs you appreciate and then let them know that they have been given the award. Read on to find out who I awarded it to - check. 

So, I'll start with the seven facts about me:

  1. I love crafting - especially cardmaking. 
  2. I am allergic to sulphites.
  3. I once almost drowned when my horse and I somehow got into a bog, she lost her balance, I fell off and she fell on top of me pushing me down into the mud under her weight. 
  4. A house I owned was actually part of a 17th Century jail. It could be quite creepy at times.
  5. I love Christmas!! Yay!!
  6. Despite loving Christmas and autumn I do suffer from S.A.D. and regularly use a blue light throughout the long, dark days of winter.
  7. I am very interested in the psychology of dogs and have read a huge number of books on the way their minds work and why they do what they do.
Here are the blogs that I nominate for 'The Versatile Blogger Award' (drum roll please)

In no particular order:

Thank you once again to Girls Who Love to Read for giving me this award and a big thank you to everyone I have passed it on to for writing entertaining and inspirational blogs.

Until the next time,

Stop! It's Going Too Fast and I Want to Get Off!

Carousel Okay - I don't actually mean that I want things to stop so that I can get off because I'm having too much fun but, over the last few months, my life has become a daily whirlwind of new businesses, taking on new projects, building websites and building a brand and it's not showing any sign of slowing down. I have loved every minute of it so far but it has meant that so many other things in my life have had to be put on the back burner whilst all this has been going on, including Cupcakes and Cadenzas. It will all have been worth it in the long run but I just want to say thanks to everyone who has stuck around and not abandoned this blog and to say that I haven't forgotten about it or you. Why I love Cupcakes and Cadenzas so much and refuse to give up on it it is that it was the very first blog that I set up and is therefore my 'baby' as far as blogs go. I have several other blogs set up for various business ventures but Cupcakes and Cadenzas is

10 Things About Me You Would Never Know Unless I Told You

10! I often read blog posts which list a number of facts about the blogger and, I have to confess, I love reading them. I'm often surprised at things people do or have done, places they have lived etc. It's funny how you build up a picture of someone you don't actually know and then they give you a few facts about themselves and that picture can be completely changed. So here are my 10 facts. I was going to title the post '10 Facts About Me You Would Never Know Unless I Told You and Probably Wished You Didn't Know Once You Read Them' but that was just a bit too long. Anyway... I studied Wing Chun Kung Fu for several years My ultimate comfort food is a white roll with tuna mayo and Branston pickle. Don't ask I have a tattoo and for anyone who is wondering - yes - it was painful and no - I don't regret getting it. I like love adore Pingu When I was at school I fenced for Scotland (the sport of fencing as opposed to handling stolen goods of

10 Things I Love About Autumn

Well, summer is over and it's now autumn. The seasons are very easy to work out as far as I'm concerned. March, April, May -  Spring June, July, August   Summer Sept, Oct, November Autumn Dec, Jan, February - Winter I love autumn. It's my favourite season of the year and here are 10 reasons why I love it so much. The beautiful autumnal colours of the leaves on the trees. I love the varying shades of greens, yellows, browns, oranges, bronzes, reds and pinks Thick homemade soups and fresh crusty bread. In particular Scotch Broth - there's nothing to beat it Frosty mornings Lighting the fire and the smell of the logs drying out in the log basket beside it Jumpers, knitted dresses and woolly tights Huge mugs of proper hot chocolate made with fresh vanilla, chilli flakes, whipped cream, marshmallows and a dash of brandy. (recipe to follow) Walking through carpets of fallen leaves in the woods with the dogs Curling up on the sofa on a grey afternoon to
