new year new look

so it's a new year {well it's been that way for a month and a half now so I'm sure you already knew that!} and I'm ready for a fresh look on the blog and thankfully blogger have provided it.
Hope you like it -it's still a work in progress but it's nice to have a change once in a while - not too often!

They boys have settled into school well - hooray! and have taken Valentine's chocs for their teachers - not that we do anything special usually - but as a teacher I know it's always nice to get choc from the students.
Actually I fib, we do have a small, recently begun tradition for Valentines - Aldi brought out Chocolate roses on plastic stems and heart shaped pasta a few years ago and I got them as a joke so now that's what we do! - so special!!!

Anyway, here is something special. Our close friends turned 40 last Nov within three days of each other and they had a belated party in Dec and we had this box from something we'd been given so I recycled it into a gift box for them using some retired DS paper.

 The lid slides off to reveal some chocs, lollies and Gold lounge movie tickets {plus a babysitting offer} lying on a bed of straw (or whatever you call that stuff) I forgot to take a photo of the inside sorry!

Now that is what is more romantic than Valentines - seeing two people invest in their marriage every day.
Hope you are having a lovely day!
