Cupcake DT - Midway Reminder

Hi!  Sorry I've not been around much since I came home from Spain but I just can't seem to get back onto any kind of routine.  Next week won't be any better as my cousin is on holiday and I promised her I'd visit my aunt (her Mum) more often just to make sure she's OK.  Also on Tuesday I'm meeting a friend so that's next week pretty much taken care of!

My daughter and I were in town this morning.  We are both trying out contact lenses.  Although I've got varifocals I just don't like wearing my glasses as I feel very claustrophobic when I've got them on and if I don't wear them when I'm shopping I can't see any of the blasted prices or instructions on packets!  Oh the joys of getting older!!!  Anyway I got a pack of varifocals to try and also a pack of mono vision and I've to go back with which one I find best.  It's all trial and error.  Luckily my daughter has passed that stage and now is a fully fledged contact lens wearer. She needs them cos she just can't see :)  

Anyway, by the time we had been to the optician it was lunchtime so of course we just HAD to go to Curiositeaz Vintage Tea Room for lunch.  It's a super cafe and is based on an old fashioned tea room, proper refined china and the waitresses dressed in black with white pinnies and hats.  It's lovely to see a bit of class creeping back.  Oh, that sounds terribly snobbish but you know what I mean!

Last, but by no means least, this card is for the Cupcake Craftroom Challenge Midway Reminder.  The challenge this month is Bugs n Birds n Things with Wings.  The DT were given Mandy's new collection of Dragonflies to work with.  Wow, what a collection.  It comes in 32 different colours and has a beautifully distressed finish.  Why don't you pop along and join in with the challenge as the prize winner will be able to choose a paper collection from the store.
