Cor blinking blimey and thrice, I had a faaaaabulous day yesterday at the NEC... I met up with some lovely peeps, had some fabby catch-up natters and was dragged around the stands by Caz & Miriam (ok, dragged is a smidgey bit exagerative *think I made up a new word there!*) And yes, I took my camera!!! And yes, I forgot to take photo's at regular intervals... so here are a few... yes, there really were that few! This is my favest one. So, it is mid afternoon, we are all tired, hot and achey footed so we spy a little wall to lean on and I am rummaging in my bag and see the camera, sitting there, unloved... so I has this idea "Caz, you are the tallest, you hold the camera at arms length and me and Miriam will duck into the picture..." This is the resulting shot.... hilarious.... *but memorable!*
Next we wandered around to the Create & Craft stand to see Nigel and Leonie and grabbed Nigel for a photo opportunity... he liked my nails btw, that's why we are holding our paws up... seriously.... my nails were totes stained with Archival ink last night and being as I didn't have chance to "do them" I slapped some black crackle nail varnish on them and yep, it covered the black Archival... cool huh!!!
We took a little break for coffee and blueberry muffins (thanks Caz!) and being as I was intent on making my photo-log of the day, I was rummaging in my bag and spied the camera sitting at the bottom and decided to take a pic off my footwear of the day... these stayed on my feet all day... and whilst I did moan a little bit I was ever so glad I stuck it out cos once they had stretched a bit they were a lot more comfy that I thought they would be. Aren't they cute!
And after a very long and happy day, it was time to go home... so, being as I am uber-on-the-ball (ok, I was going in my bag to get my car keys and saw the camera) I took a quick snap of our combined stashly haul. My bag is the teensy one on the end (believe that, you will believe 'owt lol)
Big thanks to Caz & Miriam for making the day so enjoyable... to Cynthia for my scrummy macaroon and to Samantha for making me the best Bara Brith I have tasted since my dear old Gran was alive... and to everyone else I bumped into and
