Cupcakes retirement Home #2

by

Cupcakes Retirement Home is not your conventional residential home.

The owner, the charming Lady Arabella, reminiscent of Sybil Fawlty (for the youngsters among you, google the name) runs it with love and often, like a headmistress.

Unfortunately, not many men lodge at Cupcakes Retirement Home. My guess is that the name plays a large role in that. Originally, it was called Fairy Cakes Retirement Home but Lady Arabella changed it, thinking it wasn't appropriate. You know, equal opportunity and all that.

Lady Arabella smiled fondly. One hundred and twenty mature ladies and twenty five men.Today, she could feel trouble brewing.
