Thank you for all the comments yesterday! Every one was like a cupcake to my mouth. And speaking of cupcakes, my afternoon yesterday didn't exactly turn out as planned. I'd decided to take the afternoon off, trip down to nearby Portobello Road to Hummingbird (best cupcakes ever), stop off for champagne (at Tesco's, natch), then return to my warm cozy flat for an afternoon of napping and reading (and property shows).
I generally only care about the bit of me people can see. So when I threw on my trusty black Zara coat, I didn't bother changing out of my slobby sweatshirt -- or put on a bra. Ahem. With my black boots, a little lippy and skinny jeans, I was looking pretty damn good, if I did say so myself. I bought the cupcakes, got the champers, and was all set to settle on when... my key didn't work in the door. We'd been having some issues with our deadbolt, and it finally decided to give up the ghost, locking from the inside and refusing to open. I was locked out -- without a mobile, without a bra and without a telly! This is when Mr TR's constant admonishment that I should take my mobile with me wherever I went started ringing in my ears. Sigh.
So, after calling him and leaving a voice mail from my lovely downstairs neighbours, I did what any girl would do: I went shopping and eating! I'm sure the patrons of M&S were wondering why I was hunched over the table sweating in my black coat, but there was no way I was exposing what was underneath. Three hours, £120 and one locksmith later, and we were finally back in the flat. And you'll be happy to hear I did put on a bra.
So now that that's out of the way, here are today's winners! If you are are winner or a donor, I will be in touch (if I can find your email) over the weekend to try to get addresses and such.
