Oh Good Grief! I am still recovering from our meeting in Scarborough with Maureen (Scrappymo) and Sue J (Ollie's Mam) - we just talked and giggled non-stop! Now, reading my blog, you will probably think that I am quite outgoing but, I am much better blogging, emailing or texting! Face to face and I tend to be a shy shrinking violet although my sense of humour is still there (hidden in my head)!! Well, I felt as if I had known Maureen, Sue and Paul all my life and they were so easy to talk to! My hubby was pleased with me because I have been known to bottle out of visiting places at the last minute because I panic!
Anyway, as Sue has already mentioned (lol!!!) we went to Winking Willie's for a fish and chip lunch - yup I do like haddock best because it doesn't taste fishy! Sue and I were nearly on the floor giggling like a pair of loons - this really was a passing comment from me, so none of the others knew what we were going hysterical about. We managed to explain to them though - well Sue did!
The maestro took some pics for me so here they are -
From left to right - Maureen, Sue J, Moi, Graham, Paul
I must explain that my hair is normally a longer version of Maureen's, however, I was melting into puddles and my hair was in a little soggy mess! Oh - and you can see why my bosoms caused me such hassle when I went to the opticians.
The three Crafterteers (Sue's idea to call us this, makes me chuckle!) - Maureen, moi and Sue J.
We all wanted to have Ollie with us but he was stopping with Sue's neighbour Lizzie enjoying himself. Mind you, I have been informed that once his dad was home, he went ecstatic and wouldn't let him out of his sight - bless you Ollie!! He does love his mum as well!!
Now, here are the other two members of our party - no-one else knew that they were here! This is Grizzly Graham and Dolly, they have been everywhere we have been ie all over the world, so we couldn't leave them at home. Grizzly is wearing his sunglasses and a camera around his neck and Dolly has a little message from my mum (she gave her to me when I started to have problems with planes!!!!) I have had her for so many years that her first dress and bonnet were a little worn out so I made her new clothes - including drawers, 'cos she wasn't wearing any, the hussy! I also made the outfit for Grizzly Graham because he looks just like the hubster when he is on his hols - lol!!!
Maureen will be back to her blog on 1 September as she is not leaving Blighty until about 29 August, I think she said. I am sure she will have enjoyed herself with all her relatives and all her visits to blog friends! Ooh, her hubby was with his relatives doing a little fishing and he was soooo successful with his 'cod catching' - well done Al!
Sorry if I have waffled, but I always do! I am still walking on clouds 'cos of my lovely time with such great peeps!
Hugs to you all
