Fab Friday


What a busy (but good) day I had on Friday.  

First off I had to go to work and I don't finish until 6pm.  Then I had to get ready to go out for a night out. 

One of my work colleagues retired last week and we were having a wee night to celebrate with her.  We were to meet at her house at 7pm.

Before work I had dropped Emma off in town so that she could join her friends at the beach - great life that girl has got. I told her if she was ready to go home at around 5.30pm to call into my work and I would give her a lift home.

Well, she duly turned up at 5.30 armed with a lovely bunch of flowers for me - isn't she the best :))  
A lovely bunch of gladioli and they were yellow - my favourite colour.

I took some close up shots - well your knew I would didn't you :)).





I made it to my night out in time and had a great time.  
We enjoyed a Chinese meal and had lots of laughs and a good time was had by all.

A great way to finish the day.

What gorgeous gladioli, Ellie, and a thoughtful daughter to give them!
My favourite shot is that last one, the blending of the yellow and orange and the layers with the light behind the blooms is just lovely!
