I think today was indeed my lucky day. I was certain beyond doubt that I would fail in my attempts to get things tied up at work, but somehow, just 15 minutes after four o’clock I was able to walk out of the door. I confess, I do have some bits to tie up on Sunday night – tweets to schedule, etc – but the bulk of my work was completed. At 3pm I was presented by the most beautiful bunch of pink roses and a bottle of pink fizzy (how did they know?!) by my colleagues, and the lovely Alice had baked cupcakes (peaches and cream, and chocolate hazelnut – I had one of each and both were scrumptious!) When you’re the resident baker it’s so nice to be baked for on occasion!
On twitter I follow AspireStyle – they have stores in Warwick, Stratford and Oxford, and I’m often tempted to pop into the Stratford one while on a Waterstones break, or the Oxford on my way to the station… Today they had a Retweet to win comp going on, and although I never, ever win on these things, I entered – and won!! This little pretty is all mine!
And then I got on the train, squeezed into a seat with my frankly enormous bunch of flowers – and found a shiny 50 pence piece on the floor! I felt like Charlie Bucket! 😀
