However, I should really be celebrating as I had a very exciting bit of news at the end of last week - I've been offered a new job! I had applied for a job at my son's school, our local boys grammar school, for an admin support job but didn't think I'd have much chance as I know how popular these positions are (good school, good hours, term time, etc!) but got asked for an interview. We arrived back from holiday at 2am on Wednesday and I had an interview at 11am! But despite my bleary-eyed look, I must have said the right things as they phoned me later to offer me the position! To say I'm thrilled would be an understatement. I've worked at an accountants for over 8 years, but this has better hours for me and is near to home. So I'm working my notice in my old job and start my new one at the beginning of September - I'll let you know how it goes! The hardest bit was telling my son that I'd got a job at his school - he wasn't overly pleased! But he has come around to the idea now, and as I pointed out to him, my hours are different to his and quite a few of the staff there have sons at the school - and they've said the general rule is that we don't speak to our sons first, we wait for them to acknowledge us if we meet them in school! Otherwise we might ruin their street cred lol!
Anyway, apologies yet again for the huge amount of waffle! I've made a little card using a Sarah Kay image 'Elodie in the garden'
I've coloured her with copics and promarkers
The backing papers are from K&Co. I've added a MS punched frame and edge and the sentiment is from LOTV. The watering can die cut is from Memory Box with some daisies from WOC, and I've added the Lala Land banner.
And I decided to make the card an offset gatefold design
Hope you like it!
Before I go, I thought I'd share a photo of Tilly the Dog with you that we've entitled 'Are you comfy?'
We felt we ought to ask her if she had enough cushions or if they needed plumping up! She is one very spoilt dog! She does have a dog bed of course, complete with pillow and blanket! (which she takes with her whenever she has to go to kennels!) - but obviously nothing beats getting comfortable on the sofa with all the soft furnishings arrange to her liking!
