Proud almost to bursting point

GCSE results today so a little tense in the household but not to worry as our Megsy did really well - she passed all 12 of her exams excelling in music (not unexpectedly) and English Literature which she was surprised at.  So 2 As, 4 Bs, 2 Cs a Distinction and 2 passes was amazing results - It was wonderful to see her so proud of herself and exceeding her own expectations.
She is off celebrating with her pals and deservedly so.

This week I decided to begin my Christmas knick knacks production and have redesigned 5 gorgeous notebooks I found for 49p each in Sainsburys

 Basic Grey "North Country" papers give them a totally new look
 perfect for all those lists we make at Christmas.
this is the naked book - lovely hardbacked and a dream to alter - thanks Sainsburys!

Of to do a little celebrating myself so I don't actually burst.
Well done our Megsy - we are very proud xx
