Back on the Radar!!

Cupcakes and Cadenzas is finally back on the radar!

I have to say that since the end of the A-Z Challenge I feel as though I have been all 'blogged' out. Don't get me wrong. I really enjoyed doing the challenge but blogging every day takes some doing and I believe that the topic I chose (nursery rhymes) knocked me slightly off kilter with the general direction of my blog and I have struggled to get the motivation back to get started again. However, I decided today that I really must make the effort and so here I am.

I think the challenge was great fun but if I do it again or take on any further challenges, I will do them on a separate blog, set up specifically for challenges/blogfests. That way I can continue blogging on here at the same time.  Many, although not all of the other bloggers taking part in the challenge had 'writing' blogs and what they did fitted in with the general day to day posting on their blogs whereas my topic didn't really fit in. The good thing is though that I completed it and I have learned something from it.

Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know what was happening and to let you all know that I haven't been spirited away by Kelpies.

I stopped blogging daily two years ago, so the A to Z is always a challenge for me. I took the week after it ended off.

Hi Diane. I think some time off at the end of a challenge really is needed just to get your breath back. I must say I've never blogged daily and after the A-Z I don't think I ever will :-)

Glad to hear you're back, & I felt exactly the same after the challenge. I think I've started to get back into it now though :)

Thanks Anita.

I think quite a few others who took part in have felt the same way too. It's taken a while but, like you, I'm getting there albeit slowly :-)

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
