Switching on the lights

I've just been down to work to pick up a set of keys - and realised I had made the monumental mistake of venturing into the town when they were switching the Christmas Lights on. Happily I missed some of the more entertaining moments of the afternoon, including a talent contest (where I am reliably informed that Whitney Houston and Alicia Keys jobs are probably safe), an appearance from that young chap from X -Factor (you know the one I mean, "I love singing, I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't sing", cried all the time, bless him, what was his name?) and two Corrie peeps who did the actual lighting up, overseen by Mike Toolan from Key 103. I thought I would just quickly pop into M&S to get something for tea and it was like the seventh circle of hell in there so I gave up and stopped at Tesco Express on the way home instead.

We went out for my birthday last night (a week later!), had a few drinks in Bury and then went for a lovely Italian meal. I feel I should warn you though that eating Tiramisu at midnight on top of a few vodka and lemonades does not make for the best nights sleep ever, I was having horrible nightmares all night!

I've done another couple of LO's for the gallery at Banana Frog, just need to email them to Bev then hopefully they will be up there pretty soon.

Back to work tomorrow - I'm hoping that there has been no major catastrophies during the week. I'm sure it'll be fine. Hopefully. Please.

So, random pic for today, let me see what I have got for you......here we are, it's a LO I did for Shimelles "So you think you know me" class. I thought I would have a go at 8.5 x 11 for a change, now I just need to finish the rest of the project!
