Decade

Today is officially my ten year anniversary at work. I know this because I have a certificate thanking me for ten years service! I also have a £50 gift card to buy myself a present, and money for food to celebrate. We used some of the money on Tuesday to get pizza delivered and plan to do the same next week, so that's pretty cool. =D

I'm not yet sure what I'm going to buy as my present. I want it to be something special so I don't want to rush into choosing something for the sake of it. I'm hoping that Christmas will bring exciting new stock and give me some ideas.

Also this week I've been spending a lot of time in the garden. The blackberry bushes have been getting a bit out of hand so I've been cutting them back and pulling out the stems that have been taking root in the ground wherever they touch it. I hadn't realised just how easy it is for brambles to spread that way, but hopefully now I know we can keep on top of them.

I also planted the tulip bulbs I bought in Amsterdam. I've put them in pots with brand new soil so hopefully they'll do well. I did go for the variety that promised to be easy to grow and I hope that's going to be the case!
