MY BIRTHDAY - yesterday!

It was my birthday yesterday - after the week I have had.........
I thought we would have a proper party!
with JELLY and CAKE
I invited my two favourite people with their mummy and daddy.
They really cheered me up. 
The reason I needed cheering-up was because the shop in which I loved working for seven and half years had been bought by someone else before just Christmas and on Tuesday they made me redundant! 


  1. Hi Julie! Belated Birthday wishes. I bet your two favourite people loved the jelly and cake! I do love a jelly! I am so sorry to hear that you have been made redundant. Redundant is such a horrible word isn't it? I hope you find something else you love doing. x
