I had a a great night at the awards ceremony last night. I loved it and was totally star struck all night by all the celebs! I think i embarassed my young person as i kept making him go and get autographs of famous people so i could go with him and take photos! I thought i'd be more star struck by the TV celebs but it was actually Scotland's First Minister that i got star struck by, he was so friendly and nice. Mind you it is coming up to elections here in Scotland so that may have been why! I think im getting old when i'm more star struck by politicians than i am by soap stars LOL.
I'm so glad it's Friday, i have had such a busy week. Have a great weekend!

and here's my start so far
I am stitching it on 28 Ct Raw Cashel Linen with the recommended floss. Looking forward to seeing Jamie's progress! I thought i would get more done but i needed to measure and cut my fabric which took time and then i went to bed early as well!
Tonight i am off to a big award ceremony in Glasgow with a young person i work with. I'm very excited about it as there will be a lot of famous people there!! So i have the morning off but will techinically be "working" until about 1am. It's formal wear so i have my dress looked out already. I hope my young person finds something to wear, if in doubt i told him just to wear his school uniform. I work with quite disadvantaged young people so things like this event are a BIG deal.

You might not be able to see it but we got married in the church on the hill in the far distance. The day was like this so you can imagine what lovely wedding pictures we have!

Today i am meeting my friend for lunch. She is another one of my friends who has just had a baby. I must be at that age because i can't believe the number of friends i have with babies now. Everyone's always like "ooh you're gonna get broody now" and i thought i would. But you know what? If anything i've actually been put off! I can't believe how much some of my friends have changed. I am so not ready for that. I like being able to do things at the last minute, i like having a great social life, i like not having to plan ahead, i like talking about things other than babies....don't get me wrong, i definitely want children one day, just not yet! Thankfully my group of best friends ("the bezzas") aren't at the stage yet so i will need to see them more often to keep my sanity LOL (actually 1 is due in August but she's like 32 so i'll forgive her, but 2 are single, 1 has a boyfriend and 2 are married). Anyway, i'd better go and get ready to ooh and aah over another baby.............i love it really :)

Have a great weekend everyone and happy St Patricks day if you celebrate it. It's quite big over here. I can never understand why St Patricks day is so "big" and all the other days (St Andrews for Scotland, St George's for England) aren't a big deal at all. 1st March (my b,day) was St Davids Day (Wales) and it was barely mentioned, hmmm...wonder why??
