In a word.....yippeee

Morning folks....at last it's Friday..it's been a week of scoring-folding-cutting-sticking-stamping and inking and I'm not complaining because I have the bestest job in the world playing with crafty stuff all day but just once in a while I get the urge to kick up my heels and spend some time with my lovely crafty buddies...one of life's simple pleasures that money can't buy.  A 20 minute drive....the car knows the way and will be on automatic pilot while I sit and admire the gorgeous scenery....no prizes for guessing.....yes I am off to
ALFORD
to spend the day at my favourite crafty haunt with the sweetest girls
Jacqui and Anne at
but the icing on the cake....my bestest Fiskars Buddy Ann and her hubby Stewart are coming too....it's going to be a great day of crafty hugs... lunch....laughter and crafty chat and a chance for Ann to finally set foot in the hallowed space of Simply Create....am so looking forward to meeting up again.
Ann and I first met many moons ago at a Fiskars Recruitment Day in Newcastle....I can remember feeling a bit apprehensive about what the day had in store until I heard a welcome Scottish accent and made a beeline towards it's owner...she is now a very dear friend and has a very special place in my heart.   We don't see each other very often....the occasional training day or when I am working at the SECC but in those situations there's not a lot of time for catching up.....so Jacqui and Anne beware....you will be lucky to get a word in and no doubt I will be sharing all the news about my fabulous day out with you all later.
And you know I think I may be missing a trick here....lots of folks comment here that they would love to come visit Simply Create but live too far away....well do you think that Willie Walsh might just be willing to give you all cheapy seats on the morning BA flight to Aberdeen.....well he is rather desperate at the moment to get bums on seats...where I would be waiting in my cute chauffeur's uniform to transport you in style to Simply Create for a fun filled days shopping.....what do you think Jacqui.......Simply Create Tours in conjunction with British Airways and Kath's Limos.   Just a thought!!
And just time for a little sneaky peek before we head off for our morning stroll and then I jump in the jalopy and hit the road.....

Catch up with you all tomorrow for another fabby challenge over at Penny Black Saturday.
Hugs Kath xxx

Just a few hours to go before we meet up for lots of hugs, chat and laughs (TLs at the ready???)

Can't wait!!!!

In case you are all thinking what a wonderful husband to have, interested in crafting too - don't you believe it, he's only the driver! He is otherwise rather wonderful though.
