I can't wait until Wednesday for this post and as it certainly ain't gonna be short and sweet it wouldn't be "allowed" anyhow!!
Our beloved leader, Queen Julia of the Desks was kind enough to ask me to stay over on Friday night, and I took a day's leave to go down early - I offered my services for last minute help prepping in return. Sadly British Rail (or whoever they are these days!) had other ideas.
Safe to say that a fatality on the line at one of the stations I have to travel through, and then later (much later as it turned out) a tree on the line right outside the station Julia collects me from, caused cancellations, diversions, delays and woop woop, eventually a train to Andover...2 hours late. Hey ho. I'm laughing now... kind of.
SO glad you made it, Nicky, well done you!
Photos of the crafting I did (because I did do something other than chat, eat and take photos) to come in a separate post...
Thank you to Julia and Jan especially for all your hard work this year again, and to all of you fellow deskers who came - it was lovely to see those of you who've been before, and those who came from far and wide this time. Now I have made more friends!
