one.

Exactly one year ago, this blog came to be. My first post was published at just past midnight so it's dated the 2nd of April, but let's not get into technicalities. I remember staying up all night writing that first post and designing the (bad) header and layout - thankfully I've changed that now. This past year has flown by so quickly and this little blog has become such a large part of my life, it's grown so much and I honestly still can't get my mind round the fact that anyone wants to read it.
Whether you've just found this blog or have been a reader from the start, thank you so much! Look, I even baked a cake for you.
Following this recipe minus the coconut and frosting.

*The giveaway is now closed but you can still do the easter egg hunt!*

So to say thank you for supporting me however long you've been reading, and to show my appreciation I thought it was only appropriate to hold a small giveaway (don't get excited, it's nothing spectacular). And because it is Easter after all, I might as well send you on an Easter Egg hunt. Here's how it works:

At the bottom of this post there is a simple question (which will be easy to google if you don't know it). Once you've found the one-word answer, you type it into the URL at the top of your browser after my blog's homepage name.
Example: What is the third word of the name of the man with the suit and top hat in Monopoly? Rich Uncle _________?
The answer is Pennybags, so you would put cloudsandcuticleoil.blogspot.co.uk/pennybags into the URL which would take you to a hidden page containing the next question. There are three questions to answer and the last page will show exactly what I'm giving away and a Rafflecopter widget where you can enter. I'm messing with stuff I've never used before, so please email me or leave a comment if something isn't working but first make sure that:
-  There are no capital letters.
- You've spelled your answer correctly.
- Also if you're answering the second and third questions, take away the p/ and the .html at the end.

Got it? Good.
