Firstly, WOW! Thank you all so much for all your positive comments on my redundancy. I really am feeling much better about it all now and as you all so rightly said, as one door closes another opens. I'm looking at it as a chance for a new opportunity rather than a hassle to find another job so thank you all so much for really lifting my spirits - you all ROCK!!
I've been absolutely flat out since Friday!! I went to the Make It Craft Show at Farnborough on Saturday, spent a few pennies and got some lovely new stash which I can't wait to play with!! Sunday (as I now have some free time!) I was back to playing netball. My team all started playing over in another league on a Sunday mornings but at the beginning of this year I was so busy with doing the adoption courses and working full time I had to give it up. So that's one thing I've started back up again :o)) Although I don't think I played that well but we won, whoop whoop!! I also umpire too so it was two games this week (umpiring then playing) and I was absolutely shattered when I got home - poor old bird!! And yesterday I went to the Professional Beauty Show at the ExCel in London. Not that beauty is my profession but it is my friends and she had a spare ticket so I tagged along too! It was really good fun actually but after all that, boy am I tired today!! Today I've only done the food shopping and loads of paperwork that I've been saving (groan!) but thought I'd pop on and post my card before heading out tonight for a lovely meal and some well deserved drinkies!!
So, onto my card (gosh I've gone on haven't I - yawn!!) This one was a commissioned card for our friend to give to his daughter who's favourite colour is purple!...
