just a minute / (very exciting) friday fives

So I start this month with some very exciting news - I've been promoted at work this month! I am now an Account Executive - and very pleased about it!

In other news, another month has apparently flown by; here are the friday fives for this week and Just a Minute for this month.

Five photos from my month
  1. Banksy print I saw in Bristol last weekend
  2. Cupcakes (an essential part of any month)
  3. A ticket to the ballet Romeo and Juliet at the 02 Arena - amazing!
  4. A little leaflet and goodie bag from the Life in a Day premiere I went to a few weeks ago
  5. Ice cream - summer's here!

Five things that made me smile this week
  1. Getting promoted!
  2. Seeing two old friends together for the first time in a long time
  3. A very nice weekend in Bristol
  4. Sorting out birthday plans
  5. Errr, can I say getting promoted again?!

Five things I'm looking forward to this coming week
  1. Enjoying my boyfriend's birthday present (tickets to a show) with him tomorrow
  2. Watching the Wimbledon final!
  3. Seeing one of my besties for dinner early next week
  4. Seeing another friend for dinner late next week
  5. Booking a much-needed holiday!

And this month, I am...

Reading... Great House by Nicole Krauss, and some old Philippa Gregory novels again

Buying... Lots of dinners out, birthday treats and holidays

Listening... to Motown, my usual random selection and a variety of my boyfriend's car cds

Watching... the new series of True Blood - so excited that this is back!

Loving... my new job title ;)

Planning... the next few weekends, afternoon tea and birthday celebrations
