OMG I gave in ...

... and bought some Christmas cards today. I can't believe I did that, it's goes against my principles to buy cards of any sort but I'm just too way behind to make enough before the end of November. I'm putting it down to the move, changing jobs etc I just didn't have any spare time between July and October.

I have made a few Christmas cards over the past week which I'm pleased with and made a few birthday and general cards for December. Rather pleased with this one which I made for a friend who was 60 last week:I made a large 60 in Word and printed it off on card, cut it out and stuck it on the background paper and then stuck lots of gorgeous little Prima flowers on the numbers. Added some Stickles glitter glue and voila. Made similar 50 cards for my sister and my other sister's cardmaking friend.
Happy birthday today to my sister Margaret and to my good friend Linda. Hope you're both having a great day.

I can't believe that I've only been working in school for 2 weeks. It's gone so quickly, no two days are the same, every day is busy and often we're doing 2 or 3 things at once but it's great - I'm loving my new job. I'm starting to get used to working part-time too and to David being down in London 2/3 days a week. Even getting used to zipping about in the car, I left David watching sports on TV yesterday afternoon whilst I went to Mum's to wait in for her and my brother's Asda delivery and made us all some shepherds pie, then after that drove to my brother's to deliver his shopping as he's poorly with the flu at present. Popped to the shops on the way home too! I feel great having a little bit of independence and am getting better at parking (one thing I always hated doing and was anxious about).

On a downside, I'm getting old (or it feels like it) LOL. Had my eyes tested a couple of weeks ago and am getting veri-focals - knew something was amiss when I had to take my present glasses off to read! Our new glasses should be ready sometime this week.

That's it for now, thanks for looking in and please do leave a comment if you're able, I never know who's reading this otherwise {{{HUGS}}}
