Keeping Up With Karen…

Keeping Up With Karen

It’s been a strange, tough, emotionally draining kinda week here at Confetti & Curves HQ… I’ve went through more coffee than I care to share & had relentless cravings for fleeing to some far-flung deserted island… just me, the shore and a couple of coconut clad palm trees. Of course mulling over my desert island getaway I know I’d last a disgracefully short time before the urge to log into my emails, WordPress or check my twitter feed would hit*rolls eyes*

Needless to say a miracle happened on late Thursday afternoon when a number I didn’t recognise called my mobile, it was an old boss with a great job offer that I couldn’t refuse. In fact I didn’t even have to think about it before yelling “YES!!!!!” down the line. My notice to my old job was handed in immediately on Friday and low & behold a huge cloud suddenly shifted… goodbye stress, hello new job! So here I am, prepping not just for a new week, but a whole new start & I’m deliriously happy once again! *energetic air punch*

Talking of happy things, fancy a quick run through of the fun features I’ve been sharing this week on the blog? You guys have been beyond supportive with all your feedback, RT’s, shares & kind comments – so a HUGE thank you to everyone for keeping my spirits up through what (was) a very rough week to begin with. Don’t forget to leave a link to any post’s you’d like us to check outl! Now time to spend the day catching up on my blog schedule, emails & tackling some well overdue house work… what’s your plans? 🙂
