So, I am standing next to the Christmas Merry-Go-Round it is twirling merrily past me ~ round and around~blurring, twirling, invitingly...but it's too fast and I can't pick the moment to jump on. I want to, but I'm not quite ready....
carousel merry go round horse
see 'Festive merry-go-round' at deviantART
Don't get me wrong, there's not a shred of BAH~HUMBUG in my being, just tired and a tiny bit too busy. 
So today is Operation "Restore Christmas Mojo". Sponsored by Mr.Lane. 
Off to the smoke to see the Christmas lights and visit the Paradise (Liberty!!!)
In the meantime I leave you with this giant cup-cake...should fortify even the most faint hearted Christmas shopper n'est pas? This one feeds 20 or so people!
you can purchase said cup-cake and other sweet treats Vintage Rose Cupcakes . I am also longing to try their Irish Cream cup-cakes...adults only...yum!
see you soon and thanks to all who sent gorgeous messages about our Cornwall departure, thank you so very much and by way of thanks may I offer you all a virtual slice of cake and a cuppa!


  1. I know exactly what you mean, Im here on the sidelines, enjoying seeing what everyone else is getting up to, but not quiet ready to join in!

    I finish for the hols next Fri, will probably all be a very last minute affair from that point onwards! But as long as I enjoy it I dont care!!


  2. Hope you feel Christmasy after today! Thanks for the tea and cake!

  3. Have fun, hope you find your mojo and find a bit for me.

  4. How lovely - I could do with my Christmas mojo making a show pretty smartish. Even with the tree up and constant carols I'm still feeling nothing. Is it wrong to be looking forward to the new year....just because.

    Have fun up in town - hope you don't get too wet.

  5. With little summer winter seems to have swooped down upon us so soon. Christmas is a favourite time of year for me, but this year I too am way behind in getting excited. You have captured this feeling perfectly with the carousel and the dizzy colours! Hope that you + yours find Christmas soon. Minerva x

  6. There's nothing nicer than a ride on a carousel, enjoy London, Lucey x

  7. London shop windows just may do it for you! and wow what a cupcake! Looks yummy!

  8. I'm sure you will have come back with a bit of Christmas mojo if you didn't hit too many crowds!

  9. Thankyou for the cake - virtual cake, the best kind, non-fattening!

    Im not even getting on the merry go round this year (or last year, come to think of it). Just going to have a simple Christmas.

    Your mojo is sure to return after your trip - dear Mr. Lane.


  10. I hope your mojo was restored and that you are full of festive happiness!

  12. hello sarah-jane - your merry-go-round photos are beautiful! happy monday!

  13. I know exactly what you mean ... in fact I fear my Christmas mojo may be sunning itself on a beach somewhere and not planning a return any time soon!

    Enjoy the bright lights ... let us know if it worked!


Thanks so much for contacting me! I love to hear from you it makes me smile x
