In other news, we are still living in the temporary flat of mould and doom. Excitingly the oven door fell off last week while I was making red velvet cupcakes. The gloom of the flat is lifting however as spring is finally here and I have my fingers, toes, arms and legs crossed that we will exchange contracts on our lovely new home next week.

Cake, cake, cake

We had a lovely trip to Hummingbird Bakery last weekend which reminded me that my cupcakes from their recipe book are never quite the same as the ones in-store. There have been birthdays in the office (complete with cakes) and a custom cupcake order booked as a gift. The icing on my cupcakey week is the recent opening of a cupcake and sweet store just around the corner from the office. I’ve resisted so far…

Inspiration

Well, the Ideal Home Show was utterly uninspiring. I’m glad the tickets were free!The only stall I was particularly interested in was one selling handmade wooden shutters. However the salesperson didn’t know how to open the shutters, or how many colours they came in, or anything else about the product! I’ve worked at a lot of large events and shows at Earls Court and Olympia and this was by far the most disappointing.

We had a quick wander round then promptly left for a much more inspiring stroll along Kings Road and lots of window shopping in Heals, Habitat, Zara Home and Anthropologie.

It was the first time I’d had the chance to explore the store and it’s just as gorgeous as I’d expected.  I wanted to move in, or at the very least buy some lovely china and glassware…

Today’s playlist

Today it is lovely and sunny.

We’ve had an offer accepted on a house and we’re hoping to move in next month.

I am off to the Ideal Home Show in London tomorrow to look at pretty things for the new house.
