Firstly, apologies for me being a very bad blogger (slap on hand)..... my darling OH has holiday at the moment, so we're taking some quality time together... we went to a spa hotel on Wed/Thurs... had the full heat/ice experience - firstly into hot rooms (sauna, crystal heat room, aromatherapy room type things.... ) but between each, we had to use ice in the ice room, or an ice cold plunge pool - or worst of all..... a bucket shower (bucket of ice cold water attached to a chain which my OH had to yank - which SOAKED me in ice cold water!) It was a fab experience tho, very invigorating... then we had the pool, jacuzzi etc to use too.... my lovely daughters treated us to it for Mother's day earlier in the year... ANYWAY, to cut the rabbitting, that's why i've not been around much! LOL!
Now onto what you really want to read! A FAB time was had by all today..... Loads of us bloggers met up..... and here's the proof!!
This was when we met up at the eating area - as you can see we were all downing our sandwiches and drinks before we set off on our second round of the stalls! Christine (Nanaseaside -who seems to have been in two places at once...!) , Elaine (Technophobes Blog), Lisa (My Makes'n'me), and now I'm pushing it for the other names.... Kathleen, Mau, Hazel, Avril... I think???? but correct me if I've got it totally wrong! I'm afraid I'm useless and names and faces! All I know is I'm the one in the grey top!
But I was REALLY surprised when someone came up to me in the entrance area and said... 'you're Christine aren't you????' It was Sarah from Stressed Stamper... who had recognised me from my blog pic! Wow!!!! I'd not met her before and only knew she may be there, but out of all those throngs, she picked me out! Well done Sarah... I must look as bad as my photo!! hehe!
Soooooo I had a fabulous day - lots of chatting and catching up with my lovely blog friends, some lovely RAK's from special people who I say a massive thank you to, and on top of all that, a papercraft show to look around and try not to spend at too!! And girls..... I never did get my Fancy Tags 2 (the only thing I went to buy), but I've now ordered it from the US on ebay.... with FREE postage! And now, END OF spending till next year at least!
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend - it was very hot and muggy today in the show, and now it's throwing it down..... so I'm going to chill and watch the X factor!
Big hugs to all....
