Oh yes it's ladies' night!

Last Thursday it was Ladies' evening at school to raise funds for the PTA. This is always a great event with shopping, drinking and pampering on offer. I chose to have my hair put up by a local hairdresser and would definitely do it again. I can't believe how different I look!

Friday it was a long overdue day off and a few of us took off to Manchester for "shopping and champagne"!! We had a mooch around the Christmas Markets, tried on a host of boots and shoes and ended up in this fabulous italian restaurant for a late lunch and some well earned glasses of prosecco. We declined the champagne as the cheapest was £50 a bottle going right up to £1150!!!

Apologies for the lack of posts - I will be back with more later this week.

On a roll!

I've now finished off another lay out that was half finished having finally managed to cut all the flowers for the bottom part whilst watching X Factor on Saturday! I have scrapped a photo of Alex from holiday this year and captured the story of her songwriting for her leavers assembly in July. A fact she kept secret from me until the day and which when I read her name and heard it sung made me cry...well start crying again really as the whole assembly was very emotional! The page is a scraplift from Cathy from the Design Team's booklet.
