Better Late Than Never! The A-Z Blogging Challenge

As you know, about two weeks ago I signed up to do the A-Z Blogging Challenge and for two weeks I have racked my brains to come up with a theme, but to no avail, and so I decided to go with general posts about things I like. A is for Apple, B is for Blogging, etc.

However, this morning I woke up with what I think is a great theme. Bearing in mind that the challenge starts tomorrow - the 1st April - and this theme needs a fair bit of research it looks like I really have my work cut out.

But hey!! What's a challenge if it isn't...well...challenging?

And so my theme is going to be Nursery Rhymes and their origins! It doesn't stop there though. Oh no!! There are four letters that, at the moment, I can't find nursery rhymes for. If I can't find a rhyme by the day the letter comes around, I'm going to write my own nursery rhyme. In for penny in for a pound I say.

So, to find out all about the first Nursery Rhyme 'An Apple a Day' and yes, it is a Nursery Rhyme, pop back tomorrow.

Good luck to everyone else taking part in the challenge. I'm looking forward to reading as many of your posts as I possibly can.

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

Shake it Off Like a Donkey

Some time ago I heard this little story and it really had an impact on me so I thought I would share it with you.  "There was once a farmer who owned a prize donkey. One day the donkey fell into a very deep well next to the farmer's house and began to panic at the bottom of the well when he realised there was no way out. Because the well was so deep, the farmer could see no way to help the poor donkey and so he decided that the only course of action to take was to bury it in the well and, in that way, end its suffering and stop its crying. With a heavy heart and tears in his eyes the farmer began to shovel dirt into the well to bury the little donkey. However, the donkey had no intention of being buried and so, every time the farmer threw a shovelful of dirt into the well, the donkey shook it off his back then stepped up on to it. The farmer kept shovelling and the donkey kept shaking the dirt off. Eventually the donkey had shaken off and stepped on so much dirt th
