My happy post

Hubbys present from me
I normally don't do Valentines, 
but there is a new local shop  with great prices. 
Sam loved it as soon as he saw it.
 One way to learn music
Sam came after school yesterday
 Our poor Magnolia tree
Weather burnt buds and loads of new buds
 The sky last evening, after the bad frosty start
the day turned out bright and dry
 These were waiting for me when I got home last night
Hubby got me flowers to celebrate my happy news, and it's real happy news, I finished work today at 12.15, and I have next week off, with nothing to do but stay at home. Grandsons will be involved because it is half term.
On 22 February I start a new job, I got an interview as soon as I put my CV out, and I got the job, handed my notice in yesterday, only one week required and asked to finish today. Was let go, so other than sadness for leaving a few of my work friends behind, no more having to listen to the horrible woman who is now dominating the office. Plus better conditions, more days holiday per year and a pay rise. Last Wednesday I spent the afternoon with the new company, a suggestion I made to ensure I would be happy with the work and new office, they jumped at the chance to try me out. So again I am starting a new role, this one is permanent.
So plans for next 9 days,
Hair cut tonight. 
Tomorrow a lunch at home for friends old and new. 
Tomorrow evening Valentines ball at HMS Collinswood (local Naval base). 
Sunday free.
Next week, lunch with Ann on Wednesday, 
sewing machine out, rest, read, gardening and
