Good Morning Ladies,
Well what can I say, I had the most amazing day yesterday,
I have never laughed so much in one day, or talked for that matter,
needless to say I have no voice to say (Paul is so pleased)!
I wanted to share with you this beautiful card that Cheryl sent me,
I have never received a card so prettily wrapped, it came wrapped in a
sparkly tulle, wrapped with a pretty yellow ribbon.
Just look at how pretty this card is, using on of Sue's Gemini Dies and
her Trailing Ivy Die, with some beautiful flowers to finish it off.
I was so touched, the verse inside had tears streaming down my face,
I haven't shown it as it is personal message.
Here is a close up of the flowers that and Ivy Die in
the corner of the card!
Lastly the gorgeous Gemini Die, Cheryl, thank you from the
bottom of my heart for such an uplifting, heart warming, gift and message.
Back to Ally Pally, the day started bright and early with Sue and Margaret (Sue's Mum)
Arriving at our house at 7.30am, yes I did say 7.30 am!
We then went to collect Pat and made our way to Ally Pally, where the first surprise
of the day was Cameeli, waiting for me in the entrance to Ally Pally, such a wonderful
hug to start the day! Myself and my entourage then walked past the huge queue and
straight in with my disabled entrance (fast pass)! We all went straight over to see Sue
who is always so welcoming, I find it amazing that with all her blog members she still greets
you with your name and a huge welcoming smile, such a warm, friendly, kind hearted lady!
Later on in the day I got to meet up with Lynda, Maria, Brenda, Brenda (littlelamb),
Sue and Pat! Security did approach once, but we kept it down and they retreated!
It was such a lovely hour, we all spent the time chatting and like has been said do many times
it was just like we were all sat chatting with old friends, I literally cannot wait for our Retreat
now, its those little experiences that make this whole blog thing so worthwhile.
I had some of the most heartfelt hugs every yesterday, I have been waiting for my 'Mumma Hug'
for Brenda L, for too long, but it was so worth it! The Cameeli hug was and unexpected Bonus,
I have tried to persuade her to start trying to come in and join us more often, believe me she
has a wicked sense of humour!
A special thanks to my two crafty sisters Sue & Pat without whom the experience would have
a lot less fun, I love spending time with you two!
I will call in later and update you on my shopping (yes I managed a little of that too)!
But at the moment I am still too tired to open the bags!
Thank you to the lovely ladies that kept the Café open and running in
my absence, you did an amazing job!
Love and Hugs
