The Girls Are Back In Town !!!

I'm so sorry for the delay in posting my photos of our NEC trip, have you all been on tender hooks ?!

Boy, I was exhausted by the time I got home at nearly 11pm on Saturday night (train was delayed) and I have never ached so much in all my life from my heavy bags ! I told hubby as soon as I walked through the door that if it had not cost me so much, I would have left my bags at the station - my hands were sooo sore ! I knew I shouldn't have bought those Sizzix dies and plates so early on in the day !!

I spent Sunday taking ibuprofen, catching up with my girls and having a play with my new goodies. I'll be showing one of the things I made on Wednesday for Simon Says Challenge.

Today I've had a poorly little girl to look after who needed lots of cuddles from her Mum.

What a wonderful time we had, so much chatter, laughing and shopping and it was so fantastic to meet up with the crowd again including some new faces this time including Tab, DawnyP, Rach, Kay, Zoe, Tracy, Kim Piggott and I am sure so many more !

Here are a few of the snaps that were taken :

Kay (Toodles and Binks), Zoe, Tracy

Kim Dellow, Kim Costello, Heather (Rica)

The girls all chattering !

Marcea and DawnyP

Jacqui, Bev and Caz

Me, Tara, Kim Costello, Heather and Tab

It was such a pleasure to meet all those lovely ladies and to spend a whole day shopping just for craft - heaven !

Watch out for us in 2010 !!!
