I was in on a secret… not only did Nikki discover the first of her birthday treats was High Tea at Hotel Des Indes, I showed up to surprise her too! :-) It was sooooooo lovely catching up and the High Tea was so delicious! wow! :-)

Favourite treat: ohhh definitely the warm scone with jam and clotted cream
“scone” *teehee* (inside joke ;))

Not only was this a wonderful surprise for Nikki’s upcoming birthday…but it was a fantastic way to end an unbelievably amazing week!

So, are you wondering what else happened this week…?

* The Women’s Business Initiative International (WBII) launched the 300% Club and I’m a member! Such a fabulous group of women and I’m so excited to see all of our businesses grow this year.

* Zach and Jody from Gray Photography brought their IN-CAMERA Light and Business and Marketing: Executing the Dream workshops to Europe! Read more about it and see the resulting images on my blog – two AMAZING days, loved every minute! :-)

* I also attended lesson two of Jo Parfitt’s Writing Life Stories workshops and made an unexpected discovery during a ‘stream of consciousness’ writing exercise, I hope that one day I’ll be brave enough to share..

* Had a great evening at the WBII New Year Borrel, which was held at their new offices! Really enjoyed chatting to everyone, including Jo and Katie who had some great ideas that I’m just about bursting to try out!! ;-)

Anyway…gotta go, it’s time for me to enjoy Saturday evening with hubby ;-)
Bfn! x
