No piccies from me just at the moment today as I'm using the wee pooter thingie and I can't get to the network, so sorry...
Just thought I'd post a smuggness post as things seem to be rather fabulous at the mo. I have only one shadow and that's the changes at work. I know what I will do if they throw me out (I have a back up plan for the first time in forever) but I do know that these changes will mean dear friends will be leaving and I've already shed a tear and more will come... Change is inevitable for things to continuously improve. That's pretty much my mantra for work.
And on the subject of work, I've just had the best appraisal I've had since starting at NU/Aviva 6 years ago. I really do feel like I've found what I was meant to do in the world of IT and it feels good.
As for more good stuff, Charlie is coming to stay this coming week for 5 days and that makes me very happy. I always feel that our family is complete when he's with us but having him here cements that feeling even more.
Another fab that's happening soon is that Rosie starts Cecil Gowing First School in 2 weeks time and altho it will be a strain on my Mummy-heart, it is such a beautiful school and she will be able to see some of her best friends every day and she's so ready to be formally taught. We've done all we can, this is going to be brilliant for her. At this point I must say a massive thank you to my husband Raymond who has taken the very important role of taking care of her in the last 3 months so I could change my working hours and get stuck into my new job. I am a very lucky woman that he's made it so easy for me.
Lastly I'm going to wish my neice Rebecca a very happy 17th birthday. I clearly remember the day she was born and I was phoned to be told in the middle of the 3 Musketeers :) I know you wouldn't visit here in a million years Becca but have a great one!!!!!
So, you see I have much to be content about. Now I need to get up and get stuck into more de-cluttering this weekend. Our local charity shop won't know what's hit it :) Have a great weekend whatever you do xXx

I seem to have gotted to a point tonight where I can't continue crafting cos my back is way too sore. Not good at all :( So I thought I type this up quickly and then off to bed.
I have 2 weeks off til my step son is up to visit for 4 days and I have 5 days off work {sigh}.
Still not got the blog how I like it as yet, but it's getting there.
Not much to report other than lots of work and getting ready for Rosie to start school 4 weeks today. Her uniform is very cute and I know she will look such a cutie in it. Let's hope she behaves like one at school ;)
I shall leave you {before I start whining about my sore back} with my card for Di Hickman for last week.... Night night xx

I very often spend my evenings browsing digi shops when I am searching for a. mojo or b. things to buy and I will eventually be adding some places to buy nice stuff as a link. My fave all time digi artist is Kate Hadfield who works mainly for The LilyPad, and I have been lucky enough to work for Kate in the past.
Tonight I found my second favourite digi artist, her name is Ellie Lash and she works mainly for Scrapbook Graphics , here's her blog... Very inspiring and incredibly cute work.
Right, I've got backache... time for bed... xx
