Fun With Friends

I have had such a wonderful weekend, here are a few photo's....

Aimes, Caryn & Kate up until 1am - fun times....

Almost ready to go....
Light Buffet Lunch courtesy of Marks & Spencer....
Group photo....
Getting in the Christmas spirit haha....The loveable Shaz & Sue....
....Jo & Kim
....Katrina & Gemma....
....Amanda, Myself & Fiona....
The girls & I enjoying a well deserved £100 bottle of Vintage Dom Perignon later that evening....

 I can't thank Kate, Caryn & Aimes enough for all their hard work & for being the most amazingly fun girls to be with - it was an absolute joy from start to end.  As a thank you, I treated them to a showing of New Moon in the Gallery at Bluewater on Sunday.

I couldn't have asked for a better bunch of people to share a crafty afternoon with - thank you all for making the day so enjoyable for me & also for the many (many) unexpected gifts & cards x

Ah Steph it looks like you all had a fabulous time. I was very impressed by the rather large plate of mince pies staring at me from the corner of the picture. Oh and I love the PJ party pic, you sure did deserve that expensive tipple!
Well done to you and your friends on making it such a success, I didn't expect anything less.
Hope your voice comes back soon xxx

Wow, what an amazing weekend. I have now got some amazing memories to keep forever and ever and am so grateful to you for welcoming me into your home. I must say sorry for crying in front of your poor children though, I have no idea what came over me - I'm so not a cry-er!!! They are the cutest little cherubs ever! And I'm glad you never told us at the time how much that champers was - I'd have felt really guilty drinking it!!

Thank you so much for such a special time and for bringing us all together. Kate and Aimes are the nicest girls in the world and I hope we get together again really soon.

Big hugs,
Caryn xxx
