Good morning. Well that's me back at work, and back to the old routine. Went in thinking that mummy and Anna wouldn't be there. But no they had travelled all the way up from Warwick , mummy was able to get another mum and daughter plus the lady that runs the quiz side of things up here to share the trip using the big 7 seater of daddy's. I did think that was the better idea as at first it was three drivers, but as usual you do get one who agrees then let's the bomb shell fall by saying they don't like driving on motorways like the M74, M 6 kind. Well from here in the east of Scotland to Warwick you have to use these motorways, so the driving was shared between two with the third mum doing nothing but sitting back and enjoying the trip, and said as she was dropped at her door that she was so tired.
Any way the girls did very well on the quiz coming in 7th , and as Anna said 10 places better than last year and they were over the moon with that place. Now there collage didn't get any where the judges spent lots of time talking to them about it, but it was won by a group who had made a model on a board with standing ponies jumps etc. now last year the girls did a board like this as that was what was what they had to make, and wait for it. It was a cuddly toy won - a bit of moving the goal posts to fit who they wanted to win. I might be wrong but Anna was saying that if they get next year they will do something totally different from what's asked for, not good when children feel like that, they didn't mind not winning as taking part is the fun, but when you stick to what is asked and the one that does different wins. Not good.
Today I am showing the gift I made for the high profile friend of my boss, now this lady is lovely I have known her since I started working with the family, she travels the world and spends a lot of time in people's home as well as hotels, so I was asked to make a full bag of mini products.
The list of products is to long, I put in everything that I thought she might need, the two bags and hairbrush fitted into the purple bag . She loved it and was amazed that I even put in a packet of painkillers etc, well when you travel you know yourself it's things like that you need.
Well I'd better make a move and attack a huge basket of ironing that I brought home, got out of the cleaners way.
I am pleased you like my card and thank you for the lovely comments.
