Corruption and cupcakes :)

How I've missed using my new camera. Despite lots of online research and reading of the instruction manual (even by me...gasp!) we just couldn't work out what was going wrong. In desperation, I returned to the original place of purchase for some much-needed guidance :)

Very very relieved I was when I discovered that it was the memory card, not me, who wasn't doing the right thing!

My girls had lots of fun road-testing new computers while the friendly camera guy explained what was going wrong. The term he used to describe my memory card was corrupt which I found a bit amusing, despite the fact that it had eaten up a few hundred of my recent photos :(

Speaking of photos...

During the week we received my print order from my 40th birthday photo shoot with Sharon Manning, and to say I'm happy is an understatement! I can't wait to hang this canvas on my wall...it will make me smile every single day :) I'm also quietly hoping that having some gorgeous photos to work with will inspire me to scrapbook a page or two...you never know!

And finally, what's a chilly Sunday afternoon without some yummy home-made treats to snack on?


Butterfly cakes are simply delicious made with fresh cream and a sprinkle of icing sugar...one of my favourites!


Have a wonderful Sunday...
