(Non SL) Cupcakes = Kitty-happy!!

I know this isn’t SL related, and for that I will make amends by my following post, but I had to share this, and seeing as it’s my blog where better to say thank you to some very special people?

Today has the potential to be the ‘Day From Hell’

For starters I barely slept last night so I’m completely knackered. I’m still in pain from my surgery, stressed out and feeling so poorly most days that I just don’t want to engage with the universe at large. To compound it all, I’ve had to drive the car to the garage for her MOT, and painful isn’t the word (Driving is near on impossible at the moment following stitches in the unmentionables)
Cup of tea and a cry when I get in, accompanied by MAJOR sulk. Knock at door. Beloved’s parcel has arrived (he gets deliveries every day due to his rampant retro console collection habit)

Only, this parcel isn’t for him, it’s for me? It says the magic word ‘CAKE’ on the front..cake?

It’s my mums birthday tomorrow, I didn’t order her a cake, and I haven’t been pissed in ages so I know for a fact that I haven’t been drunken E-buying…
Tentatively I open the parcel to be greeted by beautiful red box tied with ribbon. What the hell is this? It can’t be from beloved, he never buys me random presents, so what can it be?
Open box to see gold paper and a smell that can only be described as the ambrosia-tinged scent of angel poop (That’s a GOOD thing BTW) wafts into the air and hits my nostrils.
Indiana ( My doggy daughter) starts bouncing around the kitchen in a way that makes me think some warlock has cast an evil spell upon her.

I open the wrapping and what do I see?
(To be said in Michael Caine voice) “CUPCAKES. THOUSANDS OF ‘EM!” (Well, a dozen but bloody hell!)

All the colours of the rainbow and absolutely gorgeous, I’ve had just *ONE* and I think I’ve had an epiphany!

Thank you so very much, from the bottom of my heart, for making me smile on an utterly crappo day, which is likely to get even worse as I am expecting a call to tell me my car has failed her MOT.

You are the truest of friends and I have no words to adequately describe how touched I am by what you’ve done xxxx

So I made two pictures instead to show the world what I will be making myself very sick on later:)

Kitty feels the love- THANK YOU!

Callie Cline is actively promoting an event that she has organised with her esteemed peers called ‘Blogger Appreciation Week’.   As the name would suggest it allows for content creators to share their  loving with us bloggy types, and to ‘thank us’ for all our hard work promoting items and generally writing the nonsense that we manage to get away with on a daily basis. I think it’s a lovely idea, and I confess was very touched by the concept, but to be honest, I feel appreciated each time someone drops me a note, some items for review or just spots me lurking in a corner and comes across to say “Hi” and tell me that that they read my blog:)

Nothing makes me happier than that actually. I always wanted to be a professional writer but like most things in life it didn’t quite pan out like that for me. Discovering Second life was a real turn on for me, because here was something I could fully immerse myself in, and to discover that people were blogging about in-world content made me realise that I could do the same for shiz and giggles too. I continually aspire to attain the heights of blogging greatness that uber blogs like Linden Lifestyles, my favourite fashion blog ever, reached. I’ve not scaled those dizzy heights by a long shot, but it’s good to have ambition and a goal to strive towards dontcha think?  I know I’m not the only one that feels that way too, just look at the blogs in my ever-expanding sidebar; they are all seriously good at what they do and I feel a real sense of priviledge to be included amongst their ranks:)

I didn’t actually ever expect Kittywitchin to become as successful as it is, because it was first and foremost purely a vanity project written for my own enjoyment and just as a way of improving my writing skills and getting published…but this blog has opened a lot of doors for me, make no mistake about that. I think my greatest achievement by far was writing for The Avastar, and I was actually earning from that too, which was a real bonus.

I can’t say it was uber-Linden, but it was more than enough to get me some frocks to review! Like some bloggers out there I don’t get actually get drowned with freebies for review and nor do I expect to. It’s always a pleasure when they arrive of course, but the rest of the time is spent hunting down the latest releases and shelling out a few Lindens so that I can go home, pose away in my photo studio and share the results with you, dear reader. But let’s be starigh- no one forced me to do this, it was entirely of my own volition, so don’t feel sorry for me, no siree-because regardless of whether I have any Lindens or not I should always have enough brain cells to be able to track something down in world that I can write about….lol!

But back to the subject at hand, ‘Blogger Appreciation Week’. Thanks so much for organising this!  I’m looking forward to it with much excitement and I’m very curious to see what you have in store for all of us bloggettes.

That said, I think it should also be ‘Reader Appreciation Week’, because without you guys bothering to  frequent  this blog from time to time there really wouldn’t be much point at all would there?

So here, have a Kitty hug (((hug))) and my heartfelt thanks, and feel free to give me one (ooer missus!) should you see me in world!
