Oh yes the hats are surviving the festivities.
Can you guess who had the honour!!!! of being the white rabbit today...?
Ha ha , did you guess...??? How pissed off does she look...????? you see thats why shes one of my best bezzies... Kirsty you looked gorgeous and you are a little star...XXX And , guess what she actually spent the whole day wearing it whilst teaching my mini workshops..!!!
The other fantabulous tutors were, The lurvley Mrs T
The lovely Katie
Here was the Golden teapot full of the chocolate currency you needed to gain admittance to a workshop. The tutors were having a little competition to see who could collect the most coins. A good plan, severley thwarted by students eating them..!!!! lmao.
Yet again we had a fabulous turnout of hats. The first 2 travelled especially all the way from Lincloln.!!
Toni is a bit camera shy...lol
I spent much of the mornig apologising for my attire and stating that I didn't actually dress like this normally... And then I realised, bugger me, I actually do...lmao... Minus the coat and flashing bow tie, of course. Yes unfortunately I am often to be found unintentionally impersonating the Mad Hatter..!!!
We had a whale of a time oover the weekend and by the sounds of it so did all of you. Thankyou to all of you for making such a wonderful effort. We raised loads for my fave charity...Young Carers.. A big big thankyou to everyone who worked and helped out over the weekend, you are the frikkin, fabbiest, bestest peeps in the whole wide world... Mwah, mwah, mwah..XXX

Exciting news, that should have been today, but now slightly postponed until tomorrow, lol. 8 new download sheets, Yes I did say 8....I,ve been a busy beaver. I just got waylaid a bit with the final touches...They will be on the website tomorrow, in this section promise ya..!!!
On a more serious note I,ve had a real sad afternoon. It was the interrment of my Mum and Dads ashes. They have finally been laid to rest. My Dad hasn,t been with us for over 8 years, my Mum just didn,t want to be parted from him..!! Its bad enough that it has taken 15 months to lay Mum to rest without raking up the emotions from 8 years ago. Their individual funerals were hard enough to endure. But seeing both of your parents placed in the ground at the same time was tortuous, and I wouldn,t wish it on anyone. I couldn,t bear to hang around so dipped out as soon as I could, and then felt guilty for it....and have ended up trying to fill that big empty hole inside me, with lots of crap...!!!!!! yup I know, I know, you don't need to have a go...!
Gonna leave you with a Jim Reeves song. I will never ever forget listening to my Mum singing this, with eyes filled with tears, to my Dad the night before he passed. He wasn,t conscious of anything, but I know he heard everyword she sang. they had a very turbulent and challenging relationship, but they stuck beside one another through thick and thin. And horrendous as it was it is nice that they are laid to rest together.
Night, night Mam
Night, night Dad
God Bless and Peace in head and heart XXX
