'In the Garden' with Penny Black.

It feels like ages since I have been able to show you a card! Lots of news to share but first a Penny Black Saturday Challenge card. The theme is 'In the garden'.

I just couldn't resist using lots of ladybird embellishments to go with this hedgehog Stickeroo.

Little wooden ones and organza ribbon with them on! The green background paper is Wild Rose Studio.

So onto other news and I spent Thursday afternoon at a job interview in a local school. I had to do a task first which was to take a 15 minute shared reading lesson to a group of 3/4 children while being watched by the Head and Deputy Head teachers.
Then I had a tour of the school and then had a bit of a wait in the staffroom as each candidate joined me and we all waited to find out who would go through to the formal interview. It was like the 'X factor' as each person got called out and we saw them walk past the window going home.
So 2 of us left the Head teacher came back to tell us we were both going on to have interviews.....
Another hour later and I left 3 hours after I arrived. I got a call at 5pm to offer me the job!!!! So I start on the 14th June officially but will be going in for an induction day after half term. My level 3 NVQ certificate also arrived last week so I'm pleased that all the hard work paid off!
Hope you all have a good weekend...I will be watching the 'Eurovision Song Contest' tonight. Have always watched it and love reminising about the songs from the 70's. One of the first singles I bought was Jonny Logan...'What's another year'
