woop woop ...





Yesterday was mine and Tim's annual shopping day out. We set out very early on a beautiful sunny day. First stop Starbucks, of course, can't go anywhere without.!!! I also introduced Tim to the delights of fiery ginger beer...yee hah... when we parked in the multi storey we all piled into the lift.Just as the doors were shutting another lady jumped in and then a man, making 6 of us. We waited and waited, but the lift wouldn't budge. Eventually the man got out but the lift still wouldnt budge. It became obvious that the lady wouldn't budge, so we threw Tim and Mario out!! They had to walk down the stairwell which believe me was only for people with strong stomachs...tee hee. Me and Alain, oh how we laughed..!!!!

Anyway a good time was had by all, as we tried on this that and the other.. Tim wanted to see what it was like in TK Maxx, so we piled in and jumped on the escalator. We were all engrossed chatting and were shocked when we fell off the bottom. When we turned round we were amazed to see that we had just been on the smallest escalator in the world. I think it only had 8 stairs on it. How pointless was that.?? Still we managed to put



We made mario try on tons and tons of silly hats...


Alain and Tim wanted to take this home...

Bet you cant guess who this is..???


Yup its Mario in long pants.!!!

Another of our concotions... Poor Mario...

We got back in time to teach the kids class and tonight they all managed to finish their pillows




Brilliant arent they..??  Katie managed to sneak in  a piccie with her idol...


Some people will just never grow up, unfortunately...

Oh....that'll be me as well then. We are such a bad influence on each other..!!! We have laughed our little socks off these past few days, and there is nowt better than having a ball.

You don't stop laughing because  you grow old, you grow old because you stopped laughing..!!!


So down to business with the setting up of the workshops.


morning workshop up and running...



















Yes itr is what you think it is, lol.



The lovely Sexy Susie brought Tim and I a pair of beautiful tin birds each.








Enjoy xx
