Had a brilliant time at the Stampin Up Onstage Got some lovely swaps in return for mine. Saw some lovely new products, was given some super new products and generally had a great weekend. I also got to meet the lovely Karen Pearmain ( she recently started to join in with WOYWW) Karen became my downline early this year. We met for the first time on the Friday before Onstage on the Saturday. We shared a room on Friday evening, spent all day together at Onstage then Karen came to stay at my house so that she wouldn't have to drive back to Billericay on the Sat evening. We 'played' in my craftroom on Sunday morning before Karen returned home. We got on really well and never stopped talking :-) - I got to know Karen from UKPC forum - run by BJ - and I think I came to join the group as a result of posting on WOYWW :-)
So to my desk - it is a tip as is the rest of the room - I have to sort it all out by Friday :-( - class on Saturday.
After all that I was preparing a few makes for a Craft Fayre. My friend had suggested we share a table - she was selling cakes. I couldn't make the Fayre as I was in Yorkshire. So another friend sold my makes - didn't do too badly really.
I am now busily prepping for my class on Saturday - All Day Christmas Class!
I look forward to visiting everyone this week - I will visit all who visit me, end in same number as me and as many more as I can. If you'd like to join in then do visit Julia's Blog and join in the fun.
Update re Mum
The weekend of Onstage was spent with my phone on, by my side , even at night. Mum developed some sort of infection, they thought another water infection. They did put her on antibiotics and she recovered well. They then said they were not sure if it was a water infection :-( didn't know what it was though.
She then seemed to come on really well. I rang her on Sunday , very cheerful. more walking and looking forward to going to a Care Home for at least next four weeks. Chatting about the activities etc that they do there.
Forward to Monday - poorly again. Breathing difficult, vomiting. tummy pain :-( then told they think Noro Virus
Last bit of news - had a great weekend in Yorkshire. My D.I.L. , her mum and I went to see Fat Friends at the Leeds Grand Theatre on Friday eve. It was so funny. The three of us went for a meal beforehand. On Saturday we all went to Craft fayre at Huddersfield Uni in aid of a Hospice.That afternoon D.I.L., her mum and I went to an Afternoon Tea held to help some young men (still at school) to raise money they need to fund a trip to China, with their school for Voluntary Work. They were super lads, helped with prep and at the event. Good to know that there youngsters out there that are doing good things, not all teenagers are bad!
That evening we made our own pizzas, sampled raspberry liquer( bought at the Craft Fayre) in Prosecco and then played games with our grandsons. Sunday very chilled, had lunch and then returned home. A great weekend and very relaxing.
Well I think that's all for now, a good job really - I will be in trouble with the boss!!! See you soon.
