New Jobs and Cups

This blog is mainly about my crafty makes but there is something personal but related that I wanted to share.
I don’t think I have mentioned that both my husband and I are changing jobs. We both work at the same place and due to changes within the company our jobs are moving 40 miles away (we already commute 25 miles to work each way). With commitments at home with our Boys this move is just not feasible for us so we have sadly had to leave jobs we both really enjoyed.

We have been very lucky in both securing new jobs straight away, and as it happens our new jobs will mean that we will still be situated in the same building so that will be good, however we also work with my best friend and she is moving to the new office location 40 miles away. I am really very sad about this as we have worked together for 11 years now and I will miss having her close by every day, but we live quite close so I will have to make lots of effort to see her outside of work much more.

She came to give me a happy new job card and gift and she couldn’t have picked anything better (I guess that’s why she is my best friend)!

Look what I got, a fabulous new CK work cup, a pretty as can be CK Notebook and some wonderful CK Stickers to make my new files all girly.

This came with a lovely card and lovely rhyme she had written that made me cry (and I don't do crying). My husband also received a lovely new cup for his new job and some biscuits to dunk in it!

My friend is not a blogger but she does read this blog so can I say thanks again, lots of love ♥

Ooooh how exciting! I'm so glad you found something new so quickly! It hard to move and leave dear friends behind isn't it? I'm really missing my workmates from my old job. Hope the transition goes well. P.S. Crying is fine! Lots of love, Amanda xxx
