I went online to First Scotrail to book another train ticket to get myself down to the SECC...just for one day...to visit the show and meet up with some buddies and what must Scotrail be thinking...probably that I am an absent minded old bat who has forgotten she has already bought tickets but the good news is with the over 55 Club I got a return rail ticket to anywhere in Scotland for just £15...it would cost me at least £30 in diesel plus the hassle of driving 3 hours there and 3 hours back...so why drive when you can park your bum on a comfy seat watch the world whizz by enjoy a coffee read the newspaper and let the train take the strain.
Then shock horror...I remembered I would actually have to buy a blooming ticket to get into the show...so went online to ICHF and hey presto another bargain for booking ahead and even more discount because I am a Senior Citizen...is there no end to the perks of being an old codger. What I need to find now is a crafting company who also give discounts to us old codgers.
And the 64 million dollar question...do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages...well the jury is still out on that one...I seem to have a bit of a snuffly nose and am sneezing for Scotland...poor Buddy has ALMOST jumped out of his skin on more than one occasion and yes all you ladies of a certain age will no doubt be nodding your heads...violent sneezes at our age = WET KNICKERS
Ok so I am all set to travel down to the SECC on Thursday 22 October...probably won't arrive until 11.00am but if anybody out there wants to meet the old codger in person and of course I am assuming that the usual band of crafty hooligans will be attending...please e-mail me and we can arrange a time and place...maybe all meet up for lunch...a crafty chinwag...compare purchases etc and I would love to put faces to names of all my lovely bloggy buds I haven't met yet.
