Fantastic Day!!!!


Back from a fandazzydozzy day at the NEC in Birmingham!

I was so happy, happy, joy, joy that my steroids had kicked in and I could go to the Hobbycrafts show at the  NEC in Birmingham. A huge thank you, to you all for your get well wishes. I can't tell you how touched I was by all your kind comments they really made me feel so much better. So well on the road to recovery now phew!

I just had the bestest day! The sweet and gorgeous Chris let me tag along with her in her car and we set off at 6.30 am on our mini road trip! Thank you so much Chris. You were so kind to let me tag along with you. You are so the best!

I was so excited as my beautiful, beautiful Tab was there and I was so happy to see you again sweetie! We then set off hot foot to meet John and Barbro at the Magnolia stall and oh deep joy! I was in heaven with all that scrummy goodness! It was such a pleasure meeting you both again Barbro and John, thank you!

Well here is what I just had to had. I mean it is the law!

So you can by jolly guess what I will be doing this afternoon. Playing with these wonderful babies!

But, what made it such a special day was meeting so many crafting buddies and bloggers. You are all totally awesome! You made such a wonderfully happy day for me with your warmth and kindness and I cannot thank you enough for letting me share the day with you all. You are just such remarkable girls and I can't tell you what a thrill it was for me to be able to actually meet you I am still buzzing from it now. You are all my heroines and all under one roof! How cool is that! Picture me with a silly smile on my face all day. So in awe of you all. So a ginormous THANK YOU!!!

I thank you so much for visiting me and I wish you all a fantastic Sunday!

Hi Kim, so happy to have met up with you again at the NEC and especially happy we got to spend a little more time together this time and chat. Sounds silly but I'm missing everyone already and can't wait for the next time - what a fabulous day we had!!! I have a photograph of you with that 'silly smile' on your face, actually it's a gorgeous photo and I can't wait to get home and download, edit and pubish it. Don't stamp your feet and say NO - because I'm doing it anyway - so there.
