What a birthday! Sue and I flew down to Birmingham yesterday morning in the brightest sunshine. A beautiful day straight out of Spring, couldn’t have been better if I’d put in a special order for the weather. Maybe I did, can’t remember.
Anyway we were off to visit the big Craft and Stitch Fair at the NEC and I have to admit, we were like two teenagers let loose at their first disco. Over excited, us? What a question, of course we were!
Anyone with the remotest interest in crafting would be bowled over by the sheer mass of product on display. Ribbons, trims, wool, threads, paints, inks, tools, gizmos, gadgets and books.
The place was heaving with shop owners and makers. Too many people for a couple of country bumpkins like us. We were suffering from overwhelm within the first half hour. But we bumpkins are made of strong stuff and overwhelmed or not we were there for the duration and soldiered on for the next five hours.
Get real ladies, it was my birthday!
A long day, a fun day, a wonderful day.
A two hour delay for the flight home.
What the hell.
Thanks Sue I had the bestest birthday ever.
PS no blogging tomorrow as we’ll have no power all day, the hamsters are throwing in the towel and refusing to run round the wheel.
