Fabby Friday

I have had such a good day today and I hope you have too.  I managed to get loads done at work, all of my housework done and still have time to share a bottle of wine in the pub with my friend Lauren. 

At the start of the day when it was grey and damp I had absolutely no intention of going to the pub after work but, when home time came, the sun was shining and in my head I had a vision.  I saw a glass of rose being poured, I saw the condensation sliding down the side of the glass, I could almost taste the crispness of the wine.....what could I do, I had to have one ok a couple alright, alright a few! :)

Last night I had the pleasure of joining lots of chatty, funny, creative women at a crop and for once it wasn't just my mouth that was working overtime!  Now the other day I told you I already had the title for a layout but just needed to work on the rest, here's the title:
And here's the rest:
And the proof that butterflies and flowers can work on a male layout.....well I think they can:


I am also loving today's prompt from Shimelle.  Wow, I have a free weekend and she's told me to read and comment on blogs.......I wish she'd been my teacher at school!  I'm really looking forward to having glimpse at what everyone's been getting up to and learning their stories.  One of my stories is that I always wanted to be a writer, I did write a book once that I let other read and they laughed and laughed which is exactly what I wanted.  I shall tell the full tale another time.

Anyone have any April fools jokes played on them?  We had an email from the MD saying he'd decided that we should all wear uniforms, a very fetching navy blue tabbard!

Have a fun weekend and thanks for stopping by

I love your layout - the butterflies work really well on it. Your glass(es) of wine sound wonderful - I am drinking a Baileys on ice as I visit blogs tonight - hope that by the end I am still making sense lol
