Frocktober 9: baby shower

This morning I spent some time in the kitchen making some cutie little cupcakes for a friend's baby shower, without knowing the gender of said impending arrival, the colours of the day are pink, blue and cream... awww.

Meanwhile in a kitchen next door, smoke was seen billowing out the door at my (very) elderly neighbor's house... and thus I can confirm I learned a few important lessons...
1. I can, in fact, sprint quite well in these seemingly impractical shoes all terrain (through the garden bed I planted the other day and over a retaining wall!).
2. Though the 'cooking' was put out before flames came about, smoke inhalation... not good.
3. It's important to keep an eye out for those who may need it at times.

4. smoke is not an entirely appropriate aroma to wear to a baby shower... I feel rather dishevelled

None the less, we are all fine and a delightful afternoon drinking bubbles and eating cupcakes followed... sigh...

Love Nina x

Glad you caught the flames and managed to smoke yourself at the same time! LOL. Well done, cupcake lady.
