Been Having a Whale of a Time!

The year has got off to an amazing and busy start!

I turned 40 and I will do a whole post about the amazing day I had but here are a couple of highlights:

Cocktails after work the day before my birthday.

Homemade birthday cake, thank you Mrs GottaCraft, at my crop (how great to have a crop on my actual birthday!).

Monday saw me handing my notice in at work. Yes I have a new job and yes I'm very excited.

On Tuesday I was very spontaneous and went to Paul's for dinner. Yes I know a 212 mile round trip is a bit excessive for dinner but he thought it was a 'fantastic surprise' so it was well worth it.

Wednesday saw me recovering from my trip to Paul's but Thursday was crop day so I was playing with paper and glue.

Friday was boring but Saturday was busy. I helped my friend move in the morning, what a work out that was!

In the afternoon I was back at Paul's and scrapping. He picked the title for this layout which, I hasten to add, will be going on his wall not in my album! :)

Sunday was great and me and Paul spent it together watching films while I scrapped, bliss.

Now it's Monday and back to work :(

I hope your week goes well.

Thanks for stopping by
