Cookie Monster Cupcakes


I needed something that was going to be easy to make but would also be slightly different on the table when we hold our Macmillan Coffee Day next week.

My friend suggested these Cookie Monster Cupcakes.


They were very easy to make with just a usual sponge cake then iced with blue buttercream. 2 Milky Way buttons for eyes and half a cookie stuck into the mouth. 

I look forward to hearing what The Sweetpeas say about them when they are home from school.

The Selfie Lottery


I joined the The Selfie Lottery in June and I'm very pleased to say that I have won this week. An awesome £85.50 ! My friend's picture had come up that day and, as I had referred her to the site, I also won too.

All you need to do is upload a selfie and then check back daily to see if your picture has been picked to win that day. You then need to press the claim button to collect your winnings. It is paid out via BACS, PayPal, Amazon or you can donate to charity. (I collected mine by PayPal and fees were taking by Paypal so I would suggest doing a different method if you can. It was in my PayPal within a few hours though which is fantastic.)


 Even if it's not you, The Selfie Lottery adds on 50p into your loyalty bonus.

Think of it as an ongoing lottery ticket which is totally free.

I'd love you to sign up using my referral link >>>   The Selfie Lottery as it will not take anything away from your winnings but it does give me an extra chance of winning too. Thank you and GOOD LUCK.

Rainbow Roses


My aunt very kindly gave me a little bunch of roses as a thank you last week and I forgot to share them on my blog. I think they are absolutely gorgeous and something very different from the usual flowers which I pick to fill the vases at home.


Do you rate or hate them?

Back to school


The Sweetpeas go back to school today which will give me chance to catch up on housework ..... write loads more for my blog ...... probably watch a whole series on Netflix.

I obviously had to take the compulsory photograph of them standing in front of a door.



Lots of bribery usually to get them to be standing together and looking vaguely happy.


Who else has a major collection of "door" photographs? I think I probably have more of my internal doors than my front door though so maybe need a system when it comes to doors. I don't want any feeling left out now do I?
