I got to enjoy a trip out of the office today to visit a care home in Rutland that's advertising in Aspire; it was a lovely drive out and I couldn't resist getting out of the car on the way back and snapping this photo :)
Hubby and I went out for food tonight with two of our really good friends, Sophie and Greg; it was a delicious meal with really great company and as you can see, we all thoroughly enjoyed our desserts :)

My final two professional photos from Asylum 8 (my Supernatural Convention from May) arrived in this morning's post and I love them. The photo above is me and my friend Izzy with Mark Sheppard and Mark Pellegrino and the photo below is of me with musician, Jason Manns.
This is my pressie from my mum and dad from their holiday to Las Vegas, which was actually their second of the year and it's only June!! I love yellow and am partial to a hoodie so it's perfect for me :) They got back today so I went round after work to have dinner with them and find out all about their trip.
To celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee, I headed to a family party today and as you can see, little Leighton really got into the spirit of things. His mum dressed him as a soldier, and he may look happy here but he wasn't a fan of the hat and it was yanked off soon after this photo.
These were just some of the cakes at the party, nom nom!
I bought some new nail polish today - Barry M Nail Effects and painted it over some 'raspberry' coloured polish to get this cracked effect; I have it in black too and I think I like it better in black.
We drew our sweepstake teams for the European Championships 2012 today and I drew, yes you guessed it, Russia. I don't know much about football but I don't hold much hope of them winning the tournament, and therefore me winning the £20 prize money.
On another note, my lovely Scottish colleague, Lucy, was obviously thrilled with her team from the draw :)
I needed this today, not that I'm complaining you understand, I just wish I wasn't stuck in an un-air conditioned office and was instead sunbathing in my garden, maybe with a good book and a glass of something cold!
I went for a meal out today with the rest of my family to celebrate my late-grandfather's 90th birthday, or what would have been his birthday. He died when I was only three-years-old, so I don't really remember him but it was nice to get the whole family together; we don't do that often enough!
How gorgeous is this? This is the view as I left my house to go to work this morning at about 8:30am; it seriously made me not want to go to work, I mean, how often do you see blue skies like that, especially here in 'sunny' Leicester?!
