|Happy sixth birthday Not A Ballerina!|
You're a blog that's not new,
You fill up my spare time
and that's not a crime.
(My poetry is, on the other hand, definitely a crime. Sorry!)
Yes, we have finally reached Not A Ballerina's sixth birthday. Which means this blog should have started school by now, but still it's here at home every day, hanging around with me. But that's not so bad, because that means it's here to celebrate with me all day, and in honour I even baked a cake - after polling my Facebook blog page readers as to what kind. Two clever readers decided I should put "six Kendles" on the cake, and there were also several travel-related suggestions so here is my Wanderlust Chocolate Cake (with the chocolate cake recipe taken from another lovely blog, My Life in the Country).
Speaking of lovely blogs, my dear friend Rachel at Because I Said So suggested that a great way to celebrate my blog's birthday would be to do a giveaway to my readers - perhaps of a round-the-world trip, she said. Great idea. Only you shouldn't get excited because I'm not doing that. I'm just sharing this lovely cake instead. And I'll email a delicious virtual slice of cake (!) to anyone who can correctly identify the four places on top of the cake. My only-slightly-helpful hint is that I went with a European theme for this year's cake. But you can probably guess that anyway. Let me know your guesses in the comments. (Along with your hearty congratulations to my blog for its birthday, of course!!) Thanks for reading everyone!
