Hi there, had anyone else noticed this topic was closed?
I just noticed it now and I suppose it was me (otherwise who else?) but it has to be an accident, I certainly didn't intend to.
Opened again, apologies for that.

So...is this dead or what?  Maybe sharing some good news will liven it up a bit in here?  Possibly?

Good news - I've been promoted at work.  YAY, a little bit more money and more responsibility and will look better on my resume.  So am happy with that.

How are the rest of ya?

Congrats on the promotion Steph!  well done!

did someone say comfort food and wine?!  count me in!  can't do this Friday but the 18th or 25th are fine at the mo... could probably do other days too with enough notice to fit around the rest of the family's busy social calendar!

Anyone got exciting plans for mothers day?  I'm hoping to chillax!
