We had such a fab time today!

We had free tickets to The Deep at Hull and decided to make a day of it. We had a great day, Harry really enjoyed watching all the fish and looking at the interactive displays and afterwards we let him run around along the waterfront. It was lovely all being together and having fun.

I got another call from work this morning to go through what I'll be doing next week. The good news is that I'll actually be taking over the role of news editor, the bad news is that even though I'll be doing the job all week I won't be getting the extra money for it. The big cheese says it's a trial and the experience will be good for me, and I agree it will, but if I'm doing the job I should be paid for it. I shouldn't be surprised, this is the same boss who erased the chief reporter position to save a few pounds. They're so stingy, it's unbelievable.

Anyway, it's meant to be my week off so enough about work! I received the latest issue of Scrapbook Inspirations today and as usual it's full of inspiring LOs (congratulations to all those featured this month) and I love the free gift, although the next one looks even better, again! I really must get some scrapping done tonight instead of surfing the web and watching television again!

Finally, here is my UKS prompt for today. The question is; If you could go back to about the age of 14, when you're just entering your teenage years, what 3-5 pieces of advice would you give yourself?
1) Your mother knows best. Seriously.
2) Like yourself and others will like you too.
3) Keep your options open, don't settle for anything less than perfect.
4) Don't be in such a hurry to grow up. Enjoy being young and carefree.
5) Keep in touch with your true friends, it's too easy to lose touch as you grow up and move on.

That's me done for the day, I'll no doubt report back soon. Byeeee!
