New shoes!! (and a few other things) I now I only have 15 days until I leave the country but this was just too good a bargain to go past! Leather turquoise snake effect shoes from Reiss. Were meant to be ₤210 - last pair just happened to be in my size and were being sold for ₤40!! It was fate I tell you!! It would have been rude NOT to buy them...will 2 excuses do??

I also treated myself to this gorgeous Radley laptop bag which I have wanted for ages but never bought because it too was on sale and my theory was that in 3 weeks I am going to be a director and what director goes to work without a Radley laptop bag?? (sshhh...none of the directors I have ever worked for have...but then again...they have all been men!)

Scrapping again - The Plane

On Friday I finished work and now have 2 weeks in which to get myself organised to fly back home. So what have I done since finishing work? Slept in and scrapped! A perfect Sunday. Oh, not to mention the yummy Sunday roast I went and had for lunch at a local pub. This LO is of the plane that I jumped out of for my skydiving and is another page my for skydiving album which has taken a back seat as I have been enjoying my heritage LO's more lately! It is a very basic LO, only took 40 mins to complete but I am quite happy with the result.

Off to Paris

My parents arrived on Saturday and we have been very busy ever since! Sunday was spent in Cardiff where we spent most of our time at Cardiff castle. Monday was a trip to Boughton-on-the-water for a stroll and pub lunch in the glorious sunshine! Today it is the oh so long and highly anticipated (for my Mum) trip to Paris. I am looking forward to it as the last time I was in Paris was 2003.

They're off and running...

I had a lovely day at Ascot race day yesterday with Bridget and Lorraine. We all got dressed up and acted like high society ladies as we were in the prestigious premier enclosure. Bridget had a betting strategy of the horse with the longest socks on, Lorraine stuck with number 6 and I swapped between my normal strategy of stars to cool names. Bridget was the first with a win, then I won and Lorraine came 2nd on the very next race. That really set the mood for the rest of the day! There was a live 80's concert afterwards but I hardly knew any of the songs! Although I was slightly excited to see Boy George as he was my bedroom wall pin up...when I was 3!!
