Busy, busy, busy.....

Morning Peeps,
 
Wow, I can't believe it's been a week and a half since I last posted - where has the time gone?  Well for me I've been madly busy getting Big Boy ready to go back to school and enjoying my last few days off with Little Woo before she starts school tomorrow.  I don't know what it's like with you but round here they do a staggered start when they first start school so she's in tomorrow and Tuesday morning only this week then she does all mornings next week, until after lunch the week after and it's not until the week after that that she starts full time.  I have no idea how people that work manage this, it is a bit of a palaver!  And speaking of work.....I've gone and got myself a new job, wahooooo!!  I wasn't even thinking about it really and then a friend of mine txt me saying there was a role going at her place, 3 days a week and would I fancy it?  That got me thinking and by the end of the following day I was lined up for an interview.....I went in and got the job wahooooo!!  And now I really can't wait to get back to it :o)  It's about a 40 minute drive away near Tunbridge Wells but I'll be back doing proper IT as a SQL Server Database Developer.  It doesn't sound very exciting does it but for a nerd like me it is ha ha!!  I start on the 30th September which is when Little Woo starts school full time too so a big day for the 'Girls Team' that day!  :o)
 
So that's my blurb and now you're all up to date with me lol!  Onto my cards and these are the Good Luck ones I made the kids for school.  Really quick but the kids loved them!...

Much love,
Cazza

Oh my goodness, Cazza, these are amazing! I love the way you have put the little ones in the corners instead of in the centre, very effective! Your colouring is amazing. So...a new job? Well that means, less time to craft, but more money to spend on stash for when you have craft time!! Yay! Well done and congrats! x
