Ally Pally

Well Ang, Carol, Karen, Janet, Angela, Liz and myself set off at 7.40am for our long awaited trip to Ally Pally. The sun was shining and the journey there quite straight forward. AP was packed not just with lots of lovely goodies up for grabs but with people, this was the busiest I'd seen it in about 4 years and the heat inside was stifling too. I bought lots of lovely goodies and was well chuffed. I think we were all impressed this time and all had a good spend. We came away at 5pm when the show closed all shattered but very happy, sat on the steps had a group photo and then loaded into Ang's 'bus' for the journey home. We had our customary stop at McDonalds Chelmford, were we ended up in fits of laughter and funny stares from other customers. We arrived back in Bramford at 9pm.......must say a BIG THANKS to Ang for kindly driving us all there and back.
I had a good look at all my purchases this morning and was surprised at how much I'd actually bought! Lovely card stock and papers, nesties, inks, alot of lovely rubber should check out a new company called her stamps are gorgeous.
Well tomorrow my son Aaron is off to New York with Suffolk College until Friday. It was his 18th birthday pressie from me and hubby. He went last year too and this last week I finally finished srapping his photos. I won't be going to bed until 3.30am tomorrow as he's to be at the college before 3am!!! Motherly love or what LOL.
As alot of you know I'm an avid Ipswich Town football supporter and today we played Norwich at home, sadly Andy used his season ticket so I didn't get to go, very inconsiderate of him me thinks.......well Ipswich wiped the floor with Norwich...he! he! he! bragging rights are ours. Even better news Everton have just knocked Man U out of the FA Cup semi finals, even bigger Ha!, Ha!, Ha!
Well I've a huge pile of ironing to wade through, so must stop now.

Long Time no write!!!!

Well it's been awhile since I last blogged...where does the time go? It was the April Bramford crop yesterday and another good turnout. The May crop is National Scrapbooking Day so they'll be lots of prizes on hopefully Dawn will win something which will save Sue's ears on the drive home LOL. Emma a Stampin Up demonstrator came yesterday and did a demo for us. Thanks to those of you who placed an order and thanks to Emma for the demo.
April 18th, Ang, Carol, Karen, Liz, Janet, Angela and mtself are off on our twice yearly jaunt to Ally Pally...Ang kindly drives us ( and I drive Ang with my Jekyl and Hyde driving, tho being a'll only know if you are with us !!!!) all in her bus........which Trevor, Ang's partner call a menopausal womens day out LOL. We always have a good day, so am so looking forward to it.I'm making my list and have a few things on it.
This week I've only to work Monday morning, rest of the week off as hols, so I've big plans to sort out my craft stuff and to make some cards and scrapbook to..Big ideas I know.
My oldest son Aaron needs prompting to get onto Ucas and submit his Uni place exceptance for Southampton.......a lovely uni with so much to do for students.Then it'll be sorting out his grants etc, which I must say seem quite daunting.He also passed his driving test last month, so I keep loosing my car!
Just looked outside, it's getting dark so I've been on here longer than I hubby reckons I'm an addict, me never.
Well bloggers, hope you all have a good week, lets hope the weather lasts for Easter....I'd like it too as I want to do a boot sale to boost my Ally Pally funds!
