Enfys....Lynda...her lovely fella Mark and Carol and boy did we get on like a house on fire from the word go......just the nicest folks...we had such fun....and of course....it was lovely to meet up again with my cyber twin....the gorgeous but oh so naughty sweetheart Dawny P.
On meeting up we dashed off to the Fiskars stand to see my lovely Fiskars matey Lorraine and dump my luggage...then it was over to see the gorgeous girls Sue and Julie at Craftwork Cards and wow a lovely surprise....Sue had made up a fabulous goodie bag for us all....how kind was that and to say hi to the lovely Bev and Jill over at Hobby House.....then we all headed off to Wetherspoons for a marathon bloggy chat...and then the lovely Clare popped by to say hello....such a sweetheart.
And talking of sweethearts and the icing on the cake.....I finally met up with my idol...oh yes the Queen of Distress Inks....the gorgeous Kim Piggott....you made my day lovely lady.....the fabulous Tab...Tara...Jacqui my teamie from Penny Black Saturday and Kim Costello.....wow imagine the buzz of being in the same room with all this fantastic crafting talent.
All too soon it was time for the very naughty but the sweetest lady ever...the one and only Dawny P to set off to catch her train home.....so we trotted back to Hall 11 for some final crafty shopping and believe me....we were in danger of being escorted out forcibly at the end of the show.....Can you believe I only managed to suss out Aisles A..B and C....whatever gave you the idea we were there for crafty shopping.
Then Enfys...Lynda.... Mark and I were picked up by Mike....Enfys' lovely hubby.....whisked back to her house for a coffee and more chat.....and then off out for an Indian meal to round off the day.......back home....coffee and a few drinkies and guess what....more chat....it was 3.00am before we tumbled into bed and I slept like a log until 8.30.
All good things come to an end and all too soon I am off to the airport for the journey home......thank you all so much for making the day so special....a big thank you to Enfys and Mike for being such wonderful hosts....I have wonderful memories of a fantastic day with such special folks....and forgive me if I have missed anyone out but after my exciting day and late late night...and the clock change didn't help either....my brain has gone to mush. Flight home was a bit of a turbulent affair and a rather rocky landing at Aberdeen due to strong crosswinds and welcome to Aberdeen...the blast of cold air the minute they open the aircraft door...snow forecast for Tuesday.....are we in for more batten down the hatches weather.
And the perfect end to a fantastic weekend......Dancing On Ice....what can I say.....fabulous fabulous fabulous...Hayley and Dan's flying routine...wow...from the opening bars of that beautiful Eva Cassidy song...the tears were flowing....so disappointed for Keiron....really wanted to see him perform Balero....and did you hear me screaming when Hayley and Dan the Man won.....wooo...hooooo....
and what am I going to do until next year.....well Sundays will be back to watching the boys from Top Gear again.
Toodles for now
