Winner......

Some good news to help lift my day.....I've been chose as a winner over at the Crafty Individuals challenge, which is a thrill as there are soooooo many delish entries each month, not only do you get to chose a stamp from their wonderful selection you also get a blinkie......and I do love a blinkie......lol, sad I know. As many of you know I work for Thorntons and after yesterdays news which left us all shocked and reeling I needed some good news to perk me up ready to go into work this morning. What is about 99 years and stores closing.......first Woolworths who closed at 99 years, now T J Hughes who have reached 99 years and ourselves who at least reached 100 years and are streamlining so that we can continue. Sad day for the High Street as 2 other retailers closed as well.

I am sorry to hear your news, I don't watch the news or read the papers so I had no idea about Thorntons.

I heard it on the news Daniele and was thinking of you. Perhaps they will be franchised which will help. Tough times all round in the present economic climate. But on to much better things....woo hoo, congratulations on your win, brill news. Annette x
