Goodbye Sunshine. Hello Christmas!

As the amazingly beautiful picture above suggests, last Friday marked the end of an irreplaceable mini-era when I had to say goodbye to my Design team in Boots.com and pack up my desk to move upstairs. Yes! I have a brand new job as assistant brand manager in the Christmas team at Boots and although I'm not going far from where my old team sit, it was an emotional day *sniff*

To give you a teeny tiny inkling about just how amazing and lovely the people I work with are, I thought I'd share a few of my 'Goodbye gifts' with you. I can honestly say, I feel like the luckiest lady in the world after everything my team gave me last week and I seriously can't thank them all enough!

I was over the moon and nearly popped when I unwrapped the following pretties:

 some beautiful red kitchen scales....

a shiny new bike basket....

and a drop dead gorgeous Rob Ryan tea towel...

Not only did I unwrap those beauties I also got lots of lovely smelling things, pretty make up, my favourite wine, strawberry laces and a lot of handy health and beauty products! I was amazed to say the least but not as amazed as when I opened the most amazing hand made card I've ever seen - yep the one at the beginning of this post was drawn especially for moi! 

I spend a lot of time doodling sunshine caricatures and cards for people because it makes me happy to know my drawings can make someone smile so much. But to have one that's drawn for me, of me... well needless to say I nearly broke my face smiling so much when I received it!

Although I have moved to a perfect sounding job over in the Christmas brand team, I have had to leave behind the most amazing group of people I've ever worked with. I'm mahoosively pleased I can still pop downstairs to see them whenever I can though... I just hope that the feeling is mutual as I think I maybe be seeing everyone a lot when they thought they were rid of me! 

Thank you to everyone at Boots.com, especially the Customer Experience and Design team!
