I am still full of cold. Today was supposed to be a Day of Rest, but it has been far from that. I even cancelled seeing a friend to have some rest time and try and get shot of this blessed cold. I have been on the go just about all of the day. I must say however that I do not feel as bad as yesterday. I was tucked up in bed by 8.30 and slept throught till 6am. Mary-Jane had a good sleep and a small lie in. She didn't want to get up at all. It was only the promise of A Walk To See The Cows that swung it for her to want to get up. I had already evicted her from her bed by this point.
Mum & I went to Chambers Sugarcraft in Workington this afternoon. Mainly to see what they had got. I got a lot of advice from Jackie, very helpful and practical advice. I treat myself to two Patchwork Cutters - the 12 days of christmas and fairies, alphabet moulds Halloween, some black cupcake papers, colour dusts - orange, green, brown and black, and a fondant icing stamp set. I have treated myself to a couple more moulds and patchwork cutters from Windsor Cakes, via t'internet. That shall be the sum of my spending.
I was toying with whether or not to get some Topsy Turvy Cake Tins. After sound advice, I decided not to and put the funds to other use - see above! I now want to bake and play with sugarcraft. I have thought that my second set of cupcakes for Gosforth will be Halloween themed. I have a good-ish idea of how I want to decorate them, just need to thing about the actual cupcakes themselves!
Still no knitting has been done, and I am having another early night x
