Some days at work....

Hello all - I hope that your week is going well? A beautiful sunny morning here and forecast the same tomorrow (hurray!) but heavy rain and cooler over the weekend (boo!). Exam season is still grinding on in our household - youngest is now 2 exams away from finishing so at least the end is in sight! It was a Latin exam yesterday and Physics tomorrow and then another Latin one next week - and if he needs any help with any of those he'll have to ask Dad lol!  And I'll be pleased when they're finished as one of my jobs at school is organising the invigilation timetables and it can be something of a nightmare of a job, with last minute changes, etc.!  It's a good job that it's a great team of people I work with and we have so many laughs in our office (even if the laughter has a slightly stressed and hysterical edge to it at times....!).

And as it was one of my colleague's birthday yesterday, this Bugaboo image seemed perfect!  (Especially as all of our desks seem to look like this at the moment!)

I've coloured the image with Graphit pens and copics. The papers are from K&Co, with 'stitching' stamp from LOTV and 'hanging star' die from MemoryBox.  Quite a simple card, but the image and sentiment definitely needed to take centre stage! 

And just to share a little garden pic - as I said, it's a beautiful sunny morning here in Lancashire, and when I opened the blinds and door to the back garden this was the view of the giant poppies near the house in the sunshine. They almost look like they're lit up from inside! 

Thanks for reading the rather rambling post (nothing new there!) - and for all your lovely supportive comments. They mean so much. 
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day whatever you have planned. 
Back soon,
