The warm glow

...actually has nothing to do with Hallowe'en. My warm glow is supplied by the passage of a deadline! Yesterday was 2 Scrap Ladies' Christmas Card Marathon. Me, Scrap Lady Ally and Lunch Lady Jan set about creating a day of card-making with a hot lunch, punctuated with cups of tea coffee and most importantly, fabulous home cooked cakes. About 6 varieties.
The girls that came included Kay who got out of bed early to get on the train from London, Hilary, who came from the Bridport seaside and Anna and Eileen who zoomed up the M3 from Wokingham. Impressive, huh! Yeah. And nerve wracking when people put themselves out like that!
It was a glorious Autumn Day, Slipper Lady's 25th birthday, and it seemed to go without too much of a hitch. Attendees were kind and complimentary - I think the greatest skill is of course mine - and that skill is finding friends that can pull it off for you. Really.
So thanks of course to Ally, without whom there would have been a paltry number of fairly uninteresting cards. And thanks to Jan, our Lunch Lady, without whom the catering would have been much less cheerful and very uninteresting.

So this is a self indulgent post. But hey, it's good manners.

I am sure they all had a great time - but where are the photos of you all working away? Were you too busy eating cake, lol!

Now I am even more gutted I missed it, Bridport is our favourite place in the world, we spent 2 weeks there at Highlands End this summer and know the place better than our home town...and Wokingham is right next to Bracknell. Do Anna and Eileen go to Ashridge Farm craft shop?

There's nothing like a warm glow of fun and friends, old and new, to warm the cockles ..... I would loved to have been there, but I was lying down in a darkened room to get ready to start my new job today - WOOT!

I would not call that self indulgent. You know exactly who and where to give credit. And it sounds like an absolutely fabulous day, filled with laughter, fun, and card making. What more could you ask for (well, too bad there were no photos).
