A peep into what I did at the weekend

Well this weekend was a busy one for me because I had the most wonderful time with my friend. A friend I made on docrafts many many moons ago who has been such a good friend came up from West Sussex. Her name for peeps that are on docrafts is Queen B (Avril) she is the lady in the brown blouse say next to me. Last year I was very poorly and spent a while in hospital and between her and my 2 other friend Tillytrotter stood behind her and Jules stood behind me in the picture decided we would meet up. So this weekend she arrived on her way up north with her husband Rex lovely friendly man. Saturday they arrived and stayed in the priemer inn not far away so I could pop down and meet them taking spare cups tea bags milk and biscuits as these places never give you enough. Ended up staying for my tea which was really lovely and gosh time flew. Sunday we arranged all to meet. I went to pick Jules up and then on to pick Avril and Rex up and off to Tillys for a super nosh up. Thanks Christine was lovely she said Cake and cuppa but no table was set.

We sat chatting and it felt like we had known each other for years well we had via email. I hope that it wont be years before we get to meet again.

So a big thank you to my friend for a smashing weekend I totally enjoyed myself.

No cards were made as chatting got in the way but we did have a good nosey in Tillys craft room. Dont think she serched our bags on the way out either. lol
