My day off with Sookie

By Gem - 20:20:00

I've had a lovely week so far, it's all getting very quiet in work because it's the end of term and I've been having a few shorter days which is great and I've caught up on some sleep. I had a day off this week and I just wore a t shirt and shorts instead if my usual dress and cardi combo and I took Sookie for a walk and took lots of pictures of her. I have a life, honest but I do really love me dog.

I've had a great week of activities in work, we had our library assistants away day where we did lots of team building stuff with staff from other libraries and there were some great presentations. It's been lovely to meet other library assistants who work at Cardiff Uni, we are all split over so many sites. I had a seminar called 'Blog Basics' today which taught me loads of new things. Do you get to do any fun training at work?

Shorts: New Look
Cardigan: Evans
T-shirt: Peacocks
Shoes: Fred Perry
Necklace: Disney Couture

I've also been busy trying lots of new recipes and I posted this lovely Pimm's and Strawberry jelly one over on Where Are My Knees?

I just booked my coach tickets and hotel for the Midlands Blogger Meet, is anyone else going?
I've not been to a blogger meet up before I'm really excited!

  3. You look great, and your doggie is so sweet! I've been wanting a dog for a while now, but it's just not the right time in my life for one. Too busy! And I live in a smallish basement apartment, so it would have to be a small one, but I like big dogs because they're good at snuggles! I am headed to NYC for full figured fashion week this coming Wednesday and I am so excited! Have a great time at your blogger meet-up! They can be pretty awesome. Take lots of pictures!
