Birthday Continued ....

It's been a while but here's a peek at my lovely birthday presents!

My lovely Japanese colleague gave me the kitty money box, it came all the way from Japan!
Have you seen them?
If not take a look at this..... it helps if you're a crazy cat lady too!!

I love the Stanley money box but think I won't be using it for change!

I better get reading!!! 
I still have books from 2 years ago, I'm not reading so much which is a shame as I used to read at least 2 books a month!
What happened? The iphone & ipad came along :(

I knitted a fluffy kitten from the best in show book!

So autumn is here, my favourite season of the year. I find it more up lifting then spring..... it makes me want to do things, sort things..... like a fresh start. Fingers crossed this will give me the boost I need.

So I'm starting with updating my blog........ Hope you like it!

Four years ago today I lost my lovely Charlie

The reason why I started blogging...... so I guess that means it'll soon be my anniversary, which surely mean a giveaway..... right??!!

Quick update on the job front..... I'm staying at Laura Ashley!
John Lewis did offer me full time sales assistant but the conditions & hours were very poor so I turned it down. So for now I stay put....... hopefully I can start to settle down. 
It's been a stressful year!!

Back soon
