Counting my Blessings

08:57 Karen 8 Comments

I know I am very fortunate to have the job I have and although there can be weeks that are really, really busy there is always something exciting like lighting for a show or recording students music pieces to compensate for the rest of the hectic week.  Recently it was one of those weeks but as part of that very busy time I was fortunate enough to go on a school trip to The Globe in London.  I have to admit I am not a huge fan of Shakespeare but I thought it would be an unmissable experience - I was right!

As always I had my scrapbooking head on and spied, in the shop, some teal and white badges with quotes from A Midsummer Night's Dream on.  When my DT kit, from ATDML, arrived there was the perfect teal paper to go with the badges and the memorabilia I had saved from the day.   There was even a little globe on the sticker sheet - how serendipitous my good friend Eileen would say!

I loved the building, loved the play and the museum is well worth a second visit.  So if you get the chance I would thoroughly recommend it.

Reasons to be cheerful:

1. My best girl is coming home for a couple of days tomorrow.

2. She has passed the exam she was most worried about.

3. A job which puts a smile on my face every day.
