Birthday Wishes xxx

First up, very special Birthday Wishes for yesterday to my Aunty Jean! Hope you had a wonderful day!!
Next, a quick catch up of the latest HSMS prompts:
Shadow: A dark area created by lack of light. Find a shadow in your space today
I didn't think I was going to be able to do this prompt today as it's been rainy and windy and generally a mangy old day here, with not enough light to cast any shadows. But we had a blast of sun for about twenty seconds - just enough tome for me to run out of my back door and catch this!
Treat: A little something to brighten up your day, week or year! Show us a treat in your space today I'm not all that keen on this shot - I was in a total rush. I'd bought the cat treats to stage a pic for the prompt, but it seems that one of the minxy little scamps was a little impatient and decided to help themselves. By the time I came to take the pictures - this was all that was left!!
And finally.....................hurrah!!!!!!! Great news! I contacted the uni yesterday regarding the latest palaver with my NVQ, and they have changed my offer to Unconditional!!!!! This means that I have a secure place on the course and I no longer have to obtain any further qualifications before commencing the degree in September!! To say I'm over joyed and that it is a relief is an understatement!!! I'm so glad I'll definitely be on the course, and that I can forget all about the pointless NVQ!!! It's my annual appraisal tomorrow in work, and I have decided to tell them now so that, hopefully, I will not have to continue with the course. I spoke to my NVQ assesor this afternoon to advise her of the update to my offer - she was not really very helpful, advised there was no chance I'd have it finished in time for September anyway, that her manager had said I would have to have stayed on level 2 anyway, and even told me not to be surprised if my employers charge me!!! I really don't care right now, and to say I can put all that nonsense behind me is all that matters to me!! The university staff, on the other hand, could not have been more helpful!!! I could not thank them enough for all their assistance and they were generally excited and pleased for the change in my situation :)
Have a lovely evening everyone!!!!!!!!
