What's Rocking...

...your World this week?
Why not come and join Virginia's small band of Rockers & Rockettes and share the positive things that have happened in the last week...they can be tiny things that brought a smile to your face or huge things that made your World the best possible place to be - it doesn't matter because everything added together makes you feel good.

So what is 'rocking' in my world...
...our nibbles table at work
Everyone has been bringing in bits & pieces and we have even had contributions sent in by a couple of our ladies who retired this year...
...it is lovely that they feel they still want to contribute to our little tradition.

My cheeky staff presented me with this...
Isn't it a super card.
...but that wasn't all.
Inside was another envelope with a WHS gift card...
...I got warned - "Don't cry" - but I found it difficult not to as the amount was so very generous. I'm now struggling to decide what to spend it on...I quite fancy one of those e-readers and the value of the card would cover the cost of the mini Kobo but I don't know much about them as everyone I know has a Kindle. (I've decided that the old eyesight could do with a hand and these gadgets allow you to increase the font size - something a paperback can't do). I need to look into this as I really don't want to waste this super gift and I would love to have something substantial to show my staff.

Heating is still a bone of contention at work but at least we now have some supplementary heating to help improve things.

Talking of heating...I had to travel up to Cambridge on Thursday for a meeting (don't even think about the un-godly hour that I had to get up - felt & looked like the middle of the night LOL) and my journey was uneventful until I arrived at Liverpool Street station in London. Services were disrupted and although I arrived at 7.24am I wasn't able to get a connecting service until 8.03am. However, the train that turned up was one of the superdoopa "Stansted Express" models - clean, comfortable, plenty of space (most folk are coming into Town at that time of day)...but 20mins later we were still sat there as an engineer had been trying (and failing) to fix the heating...the delay annoyed me but I did have to giggle at the fact that 'heating' seems to be a problem everywhere I go - Is it me, do ya think?

I have never travelled to Cambridge by train before and I really wish I had taken my camera as the views were wonderful - it was like travelling through a winter wonderland. A bit like scenes from the start of the Lion, Witch & the Wardrobe...

Got to play my new CD - yes, I gave in and bought "50 Shades of Grey". The CD contains all the classical pieces that are mentioned throughout the trilogy. I admit to being a bit of a heathen when it comes to classical music - I know what I like but couldn't tell you what it is called (even a piece from the Nutcracker is only known by me as the "Fruit & Nutcase" advert **hehehe**). The CD is a mix of pieces I am familiar with and others that are completely unknown...the very first one is the BA advert - see I told you, I'm a heathen **giggle**

Not long to Christmas now and I was so pleased that I had completed a batch of Christmas cards and delivered them...only to realise I hadn't photographed any of them - doh!

Anyway, what's been rocking your world this week....................................
