A perfect day out...

in London at the Country Living Christmas Fair with bloggy friends!

Today I met with Trashy (just as crazy as I'd been warned!), Wonderwoman, Lucy Locket, Moogsmum and Lucy's sister Alison (who kindly took the photo). Gifts were exchanged, there was much laughter, talk of donkeys and chickens, lunch, wine tasting and of course the odd purchase or two. I left them all still shopping because I'd had enough of them all my back was aching and I needed to get home. Just don't have the staying power! Lovely to meet you all ladies, it was lots of fun and I'm looking forward to next time! Off to pack my stuff for another class tomorrow... back next week. Have a lovely weekend... especially those of you staying in London to drink wine and meet more bloggy friends tomorrow!

  1. Oh fab! Glad you all had a fun time!

    The very very clever crafts person Sue Lowday (I bought a beautiful belt from her at the Newmarket Craft Fair on Sunday) was going to be there with her lovely belts, bags and journals.

    What did you buy Gina?

  3. Now I'm piecing together a who's who, because I've got to spot two of these renegades in Covent Garden tomorrow - hope they're not all chattered out (but somehow I doubt it).

    Blogger meet ups, fun times!

  6. Just as well you left when you did b/c it gave us loads more time to talk about you ;-)

    After just a teey-weeny bit more purchasing it was off to Loop to harrass the nice man and then a street-lit taxi ride to the train station.

  10. Love your happy snap! And how marvellous to put a face to the elusive Ms T. Can. Even if she did remain mysterious behind the dark shades!

  14. Thank you for your lovely comment on my new blog.

    I had a lovely time with you all at the Country Living Fair - what a laugh you all are.

    Thank you also for my lovely christmas fairy. My daughter has already been on your blog and found the details so I think I will be off to get some supplies for making them at the weekend with her friend.

    Hope to see you again soon
