Thanks To Me!!!

This week I have been surprised twice with lovely thank you gifts!
You may remember I made a christening cake last month? Well my friend Kelly's Mum sent me these gorgeous flowers because she was so pleased with it!

I love them!

Also, and even more surprising, I received a 'Thanks To You' award at work!
It's a gold award (even more of a shocker!) for work I did over Christmas.
Yes I spent Christmas Night here!

One of the lines I work for was targeted by vandals on Christmas Eve (seriously wouldn't you think they would have better things to do?) and a lot of damage was done. Unfortunately I was on call so had to sling my pants on over my trousers (a la Superman!) to make sure passengers could get to the sales on Boxing Day!

My gold award means I get a certificate in a frame and £250 in Capital Bonds, these can be spent in loads of places, but I think I will use them to pay for a Cheeky weekend away with James!

Nice to be appreciated!

Lots of Love
