Good Sunday morning everyone. Hope, as always, this finds you well.
Nice to have Val and Ita back. Val, I hope that your eyesight is now so good that you can see all my mistakes lol!!!
Janice (that's MAWTT Janice before you all shout lol!) you're not a pest but there are now 3 of you who come for a paddle lol!
Well, here's my purchases from the NEC. Not anywhere near as bad as usual. Mr D gave me early birthday money but I came back with half of it.
Hazel(Didos) there wasn't too much squishing. I try and avoid unsolicited bodily contact unless its someone resembling Danny Dyer or Colin Firth hahaha!
The round things at the front are 6 coasters from the MDF Man. You may also notice decopatch papers (Santoro ones) and you can blame John for that lol!!!
Its not too bright a photo as I decided, like a chimp, to take the photo just as the eclipse was happening so there was a very weird light.
Sadly, both Sue P and Graham didn't make it as Sue had a poorly toe (I knew that vibrating pedi thing would be her downfall) but I had a lovely catch up over lunch and a later cuppa with Christine (lovely lass)
Also met up with John, who was playing escort to Julia Watts and Sue Wilson. I've met Julia before but it was lovely to meet Sue for the first time. Hilariously, the ladies reckoned John was the first one to get recognised. . . . . . . must get his autograph and ebay it lol!!!
Not as many stalls there and a couple of big names missing but for a £3.00 Tesco ticket and a £2.50 rtn train fare, its all good and I thoroughly enjoyed it (Door to door by train was only 40 mins).
Ohhhh, before I forget, another little something I bought home. . . . . . . .
This is a Chocolate Tiffin Brownie (chocolate, fruit, nuts and coconut) I bought home for Mr D. I had eaten my Nutella and Peanut Butter Blondie Brownie at the show for breakfast (Is a balanced diet when you have one in each hand???)
I have to say it was the most delish brownie I have ever eaten and Mr D savoured every mouthful of his. I managed to get the photo before he got sight of it. . . . . . . .I won't tell you how many Mr Lockwood bought lol!!!
As you will notice on the bag, there is a website and. . . . . . . . . MAIL ORDER!!!!!!
If anyone is going to the show today, go grab em before they sell out.
Karen, no Thank Crunchie exchanged hands this time. . . . .probably just as well with the brownies lol!
A last couple of snaps. . . . . . . . . . . . .
These are my first efforts at using texture paste as I mentioned last week. I haven't decided what to do with them yet but watch this space (Don't get too excited Pamellia, this is about as messy as I get hahaha!!!)
A close up of its texturedy glitteryness. I think it was Magenta Chic.
Well, that's me. Hope Patricia and Hazel have had a lovely time in Belfast (haven't seen any debauchery reported on the BBC News lol!!!) and that you all have a smashing Sunday and week ahead.
Ps. . . . Michele, hope you do decide to start a blog (its good fun) and so sorry to read about your friend.
