2nd post of the day - please scroll down to read earlier post
Sorry, been MIA today - been to the craft show at Westpoint, Exeter. I met up with my friend, Sue, at 09:00 (or as I like to call it these days "stupid o'clock" - so out of the habit of rising early!) and headed off to Exeter, arriving a smidge before 10:30 and joined the line to get in! We hadn't booked tickets in advance as we weren't 100% convinced we make it so we had to wait with all the others - did get chatting to a group of ladies behind us and one was wearing a fantabulous knitted scarf - saw the wool inside too but controlled the urge - the last thing I need is another scarf right now!! Tempting though . . . My usual plan of attack (since Sue's never been to one of these shows) is to belt round quickly looking for things I want and/or know the price of before going round again and shopping at the stalls I really want to . . . Nothing on my shopping list so how on earth did I end up with this little lot???
AND we stopped for lunch and were away by 2:00 - doesn't take us long does it? Sue? She bought some ribbon! OOOPS!! Shared a table with two very nice ladies over lunch - mother and daughter, the mother had done a quick origami make and take, she was so funny - hello if you're reading this. Back round again and a nice chat with the lady from the SNAZZY stall, said hello to the ladies from Debbie Moore and dropped your name, Karen - no discount!!! BUM Bought a Dark Room Door stamp but then couldn't find an acrylic block big enough - will have to wait till the craftathon!!!
Hubby was painting the kitchen ceiling when Sue and I got home - made him a cuppa and left him to get on with it!!!! Sue and I adjourned to talk about our day - she went home with my now redundant Quickutz Revolution - so she caught up with me on the spending . . . NEARLY!
Anyway, off to my neighbours now and there will probably be a glass imbibed so . . . CHEERS! Have a fantastic Friday everyone
