Where have I been????

Sorry for the lack of posts but I have been a busy little bee.....and if you don't mind I am going to share some of what I have been up with you...if you just want to skip to the cards they are at the bottom of this post!

The company I work for holds events 3 times a year for all its staff to get together as we are spread through out the country....and the spring party is traditionally the fancy best bib and tucker kind of event..and this year was no different. The trauma started when I realised that the dress I was planning to wear was too big...what a complaint but it was! so I whizzed myself into a panic...where on earth was I, Miss I don't wear dresses, going to find a dress for a black tie event in 1 day, as that is all the time I had....I went for the two prong attack, I ordered two dresses off the Internet on next day deliver...and headed for the shops as the dresses ordered may not be right ...(and for me this is a 30+ mile trip each way).....I found a dress....I liked the dress but knew I had two other choices arriving the next day... next day no other dresses...they eventually turned up 6 days later ...so I now had a dress....I shall go to the ball.... the event was held at the Celtic Manor Resort Hotel ....fabulous isn't the right word for it!






The day consisted of a team building event where we drove 4X4 land rovers blindfolded, clay pigeon shooting, pistols, Honda pilots, quad bikes and archery....I loved the archery ..below is a picture of my arm ...this bruise is now 11 days old...



yes it is over 3.5 inches long and nearly 3 inches wide...when I do these things I do them well! and remember this is 11 days old!


and this is some of the girls and me ( I am in red) after a glass or 3 of wine!


So that was 1 weekend and then the following week I was working in Bristol and this weekend it was my birthday! not that that was very exciting !



Whilst in Wales at the Celtic Manor I received a text to say a good friend had become a grandmother for the second time.... Celie is the most beautiful person inside and out, she has so much love to give and deals with life's challenges is such a awe inspiring way that she is a true role model.
