Well really it was a surprise yesterday, but I didn't get home til late last night ;o)  Yesterday was the last day in my old job after more than 5 years and I was surprised with some lovely pressies from my colleagues, who had to practically coral me to the presentation and tie me to my desk... (I go walkies a lot ;o) )

Now I get to work out how I want to spend £30 at the Art Store, £40 at Mandors, and £20 at B&Q.  Although I do have a little craft to keep me busy while I ponder:


Now I'm thinking of getting dressmaking fabric from Mandors, as they're much better at that than the paltry quilting section, so what do I *need* to make?

  3. Have fun spending your vouchers. I don't what Mandors is so I'm thinking we don't have them in the south.

  14. I dont know what any of those stores are but Im assuming its all craft and sewing related. I'd be off to the shops to buy a whole load of new stuff ...Glad you got a little bit spoiled. You deserve it.

    Do you have any time off between this job and the next one?
