Bloomin' Marvellous Harrogate!

Before I fall asleep..yes, I'm cream crackered but more of that later...

The Bloomin' Marvellous stamp set goes to...

Oh, oh, I'm free! I mean I have a home for these! Have a great time at the weekend. X

Mrs Fluff'n'stuff Faye, please EMAIL me chick with your full postal address and I'll get this popped in the mail to you.

Back to Harrogate...I had a wonderful time but I'm flippin' shattered today, it was the two Christines that wore me out!

Without a doubt, the best thing about going to the show is meeting up with my buddy's:

Christine...and the lovely Barry, who me and Phil stayed with on Friday night. They are both wonderful hosts and we had a fab time. Thank you kindly for your hospitality...though I'm sure as we were driving away I heard Barry say 'quick, bolt the bloody door so they can't come back' lol!

t'other Christine...who is an absolute sweetheart and had me in stitches. I have to tell you though that she's a little minx and kept trying to lead me and Christine astray and buy more stuff than we intended to buy!

Just before lunchtime we met up with some more buddy's...Hazel, Mau who brought her lovely hubby and daughter, KathLisaShellDianneNina and Avril. They are all such lovely ladies and I could quite happily have spent the rest of the day chatting if there hadn't been money burning a hole in my pocket!

Later in the afternoon we went for a coffee with Jill but not before I'd visited her stall at the show and filled my basket with lots of lovely goodies.

I did manage to buy the 3 things on my list plus a couple of other teeny weeny things, but nowhere near as much as the two Christines bought...sheesh but there's no stopping those two :)

Ok, thanks for looking and I'm off to my bed.
Big hugs


  1. Lovely to see you all again Elaine - and you look really well!

  3. Sounds fab, so glad you had a lovely time. That's one of the lovely things meeting up with crafty friends. I'm looking forward to Ally Pally x

  4. Errrrr excuse me? Am I not a sweetheart too? LOL! It's something about the name! And yes... 'twas the other Christine that was leading us astray... She's such a little temptress! I mean... We wouldn't have spend half so much without her input... And she blushes so beautifully too .. Especially when we were looking for that pokey tool!

    You were perfect guests.. who were a joy to have stay... And Barry's whisper was 'oh my aching feet' methinks.... He had no idea how long it takes to get the 'right' shot!

    Big hugs
    Christine x

  5. Sleep well & glad you had a super time.
