Didn't we have a lovely time.......

In the words of the song....didn't we have a lovely time....the day we went to ALFORD but beware this is a "pic heavy" post.  The weather first thing in the morning was dull...gloomy and very misty....but by the time I set off to meet my lovely bloggy bud Dawn.....the sun was out and it was beginning to get a little toasty......and Dawn is just as I imagined her to be.....lovely sweet lady and you know that feeling you get within minutes of meeting someone....as though you have always known each other and it was chat chat chat all the way home to Chez Kath to meet YOU KNOW WHO......Buddy is a real people dog and Dawn got an extra special welcome...toy stuffed in his mouth....speaking his own doggy welcome..tail and bottom wagging furiously...I'm certain he would be absolutely useless as a guard dog.
Dawn had made him the most gorgeous birthday card........

and a yummy parcel
and the cubbyhole Queen wasn't forgotten either..
thank you so much Dawn for such a beautiful card....I will treasure it always and I loved my flowers and gifts....you are so generous and I truly had the most wonderful day.
We had a quick bite to eat.....took HIS NIBS for a stroll around the block and set off for our crafty journey to Alford set in the beautiful rolling hills of Aberdeenshire and oh my giddy aunt...by now it was cooking....thank goodness for air con.....we had a yummy lunch at a local bistro and set off to do what all crafters love to do at "Simply Create"
and my lovely bloggy friend Dawn in spend mode
and her face says it all
"Will I go and get that House Mouse Stamp"
  and just in case you come over a little bit faint after your
spendathon....you can chill out here and have a coffee.....
and did we need to sit down.....well that would be telling..
your secret's safe with me Dawn
We were a little disappointed that we didn't meet the lovely Jacqui but she had left me a yummy parcel.
Simply Create is sponsoring some prizes on Penny Black Saturday...gorgeous craft goodies which you will have the chance to win very soon.But all good things come to an end and all too soon Dawn was heading for home...a big thank you for a wonderful day my lovely bloggy friend...it was so nice to meet you at last and hopefully we can do it all again soon and if you live in the North of Scotland...you must make a point of paying Jacqui a visit at Simply Create...you won't be disappointed but a little word of warning...save up your pennies before you go. And what did I buy yesterday...well you will be seeing some of my goodies very soon. Did Andy Murray give me a few heart stopping moments last night but won through in the end...Ok we all have off days and he is under so much pressure..the whole country is rooting for him but you need to up your game matey and get the old head together...atch up with you all tomorrow for another challenge card and some fun photos from Brodie's sports.
Hugs Kath xxxxxxx
