Few days ago Lisa from Krim Krams announced a giveaway of a stunning Portmeirion cup and saucer, of course I promptly joined the fun and this morning I found out I won it! I haven’t won anything since I was a little girl so it put a huge smile on my face. Thank you Lisa!
Later on today a Hummingbird Bakery box landed on my desk. A special selection of Valentine’s Day cup cakes for everyone in my office.
I am not a huge fan of cup cakes but tried one and the sponge was nice and moist, the icing was not too sickly sweet and it was so pretty, soon I found myself tucking in with my fingers dyed red and glitter everywhere.
Then the sugar rush hit and my colleague and I headed down to Waterstone’s in Piccadilly to look at some issues of McSweeney’s (usually I am very lazy and cannot be bothered to walk that far). It’s extremely hard to choose just one so we quickly decided we will buy them off Amazon later on. Check out the great story behind the name of the literary magazine here and watch Dave Eggers at TED, he is so brilliant. Before returning to the office we looked at some more books, I always want to buy a lot so it was hard to leave empty handed.
Afterward came the crash and I actually started to crave another cup cake like a junkie.
Unfortunately for me Hummingbird Bakery has just opened a shop in Soho. While Notting Hill is a save distance away, Wardour Street is a mere 5 minutes from my office. I only hope my sugar levels go back to normal by Monday and I will forget it altogether.
It’s 9.00pm and I am still buzzing.
