I have a card to share with you today. It's a very special card for me.
Firstly because it's for Des.
And secondly because, apart from the cards I've done for the web site, this is the first card I've made especially for someone since March!
Would you believe I've spent all summer buying cards? And it always makes me feel a bit of a fraud when I give someone a shop-bought card. It's just not the same is it? I always give them with just as much love as those I make myself. But they just don't feel like it to me. I think it's because I know that all the extra love we always pour into our special handmade cards is missing. So it feels really good to have made this : )
Anyway ... back to Des. My card is to congratulate him on his new job. He's recently been given the post of Duty Manager at The Porthminster Hotel in St Ives, now known as St Ives Harbour Hotel. The Porthminster.
If you've ever been to St Ives, you'll probably know The Porthminster. If not, she's the beautiful Victorian building sitting very elegantly above Porthminster beach. This one ...
Until a couple of years ago she was a family-run hotel. Then she was acquired by the Harbour Hotels Group who are spending literally millions transforming her. And she is beginning to look very gorgeous. So is her fabulous new spa : ) And part of the transformation includes a new management team. And it is this new management team that Des is now part of.
It's a totally new direction for Des. He's very excited about it. And I'm absolutely thrilled for him. And I just know he's going to be fantastic at it. Congratulations Des. And enjoy!
And thank you to all of you for visiting this week. Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone!
