The Liebster Blog Award!!


Last night I discovered that Cupcakes and Cadenzas has been given an award!

I love blogging awards. I think they're a fantastic way of showing people that you appreciate the work that they put into their blogs.

This award is The Liebster Award. 

Liebster is a German word meaning 'dearest', 'beloved' or 'favourite' and the award is given to bloggers that you feel deserve it and have less than 200 followers. The idea is to help them finds more followers and I have to say - I'm all for that!

As with all blogging awards if you accept the award then there is a set of rules which must be followed.

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.

2. Nominate up to five other blogs for The Liebster Award.

3. Let the nominated blogger know via a comment on their blog.

4. Post the award on your blog.

5. Consider signing up for the A-Z Challenge - a great way to find new and interesting blogs.

So, firstly I would like to thank HEATHER over at READING, WRITING AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN for nominating Cupcakes and Cadenzas for this award. It's much appreciated. (please click on the link to visit Heather's blog - it's worth reading!)

The Sad Songs Blogfest

This is the first time I've ever taken part in a Blogfest and it has been great fun! Thank you to Diane for organising it. You can find Diane's blog by clicking here  Check out her list of inspirational, sad songs. I have had a ball going through old cds, trying to pick out my top 10 sad songs that inspire me. I have to admit that I could have come up with way more than 10 but I decided to give myself a limit. These songs hold no particular memories for me but they are songs that tug at my heart strings every time I hear them and if I'm ever feeling down and wanting to wallow in self-pity, then these are the songs I would put into my playlist and play whilst drinking a bottle glass or two of wine. Are you sitting comfortably? (click on any of the titles to hear the songs on youTube) Hello by Evanescence . The haunting piano accompaniment and the striking voice of Amy lee make this (in my opinion) one of the most moving songs this band have ever released. All O

A-Z Blogging Challenge: B is for 'Baa Baa Black Sheep'

Baa baa black sheep 'Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool?   Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full, One for the master, one for the dame, And one for the little boy who lives down the lane.' Although this rhyme was first published in 1744 it is believed to have been around for much longer. In fact, it is thought that it was written in the Middle Ages during the reign of King Edward II (1307 - 1327). This seemingly innocent children's nursery rhyme about a black sheep yielding three bags of wool actually has political undertones like many of the nursery rhymes from that era. During the Middle Ages the wool industry in England was huge and wool was a very valuable commodity. England produced the best wool in Europe and peasants were required to pay their taxes in the form of sacks of wool. They gave a third to the King (the master), a third to the nobility (the dame) and they were allowed to keep the final third for themselves (the little boy who lived down the lane)

A-Z Blogging Challenge: A is for 'An Apple A Day'

An Apple a Day So here goes with the first post of the A-Z Blogging Challenge. For those of you who are not sure what my theme is you can find out by clicking here . We're all used to hearing the saying 'An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away' but did you know that it is actually taken from an old nursery rhyme? No-one knows for certain when it was first written but the first printed version of it has been traced back to 1866 although it is believed that it originated  long before that. It is also believed that the poem was written to encourage children to eat healthily. AN APPLE A DAY 'An apple a day keeps the doctor away Apple in the morning - Doctor's warning Roast apple at night - Starves the doctor outright Eat an apple going to bed - Knock the doctor on the head Three each day, seven days a week - Ruddy apple, ruddy cheek.' So you see - our 5 a day is really nothing new. Even two hundred years ago they were encouraging children to eat at l
