Good afternoon, thank for all your lovely comments on my anniversay card most appreciated, also for calling in to see what I have posted! Nothing crafty. Sorry!
Have been away meeting up with a group of friends that I meet last year at the "Cotswold Crafters" retreat. We have all stayed friends since and decided to meet up again. The retreat was at Birmingham, which to be honest was just a little to far for mine and a few others old bones. This time we arranged to meet at Carlisle not far for the north of England ladies and us Scottish ladies! Just over 3 hours for myself who was the driver, across to Perth to pick up Patricia big sister, down to Glenochil to pick up the lovely Norah then on to near Falkirk to pick up Jess. Norah had encounter Patricia, Jess and myself so she had the other five to meet for the first time, Margaret who comments under " Margaret Corgi Owner" ( she is the one with the crutches) had the scary job of meeting all of us! We have known each other for a couple of years yet first meet up with her. Lots of (((((hugs))))) folk in the car park and in the hotel must of wonder what was going on!!! These mad women hugging etc. Funny it's like that when we meet up with other crafting friends that we have met via blogs!
I have met the most wonderful friends from being firstly on Sue Wilson's blog then going into see what other crafters have up on their blogs. The ladies we met up with don't have blogs yet comment on lots.
Right hand side starting :- Myra, Saba, Norah, Maureen, Diane, Jess, Patricia and myself, this was taken yesterday morning after breakfast so Margaret wasn't there that's why I have put the extra photo up. Saba got one of the two friendly police officers who had came in for a coffee to take the photo.
We had a wonderful time, chatting, laughing, retail therapy and wonderful evening meals. We could not fault any of the staff at the hotel, shops, restaurants even when I had to ask for direction from folk they were all so friendly.
Oh I have again to say I have got some of the most wonderful friends,
all from really clicking on their icons on Sue's blog. Ang Duck, Christine Harrop, Kate ( culliesocks) Rita ( RMG creations ) Sandra ( Cotswold crafter) to name a few.
