Didn't we have a loverly time…..

the day we went to Boston…even though it rained and poured the whole time we were there!!

The gorgeous Mario, always a ready smile.

And so fabulous to have one of my bezzies joining the team…aka the gorgeous Dina Wakely.

And of course, the cheeky chappie himself, the lovely Tim Holtz.

 Love love love this pic of the three of us

 We were attending a retailer event and it was so fab to catch up with a lot of familiar faces, including my Jewish Mamma Betty.

And also good friends in the industry…the lovely Eileen Hull brought her vintage camper with her and was conducting interviews so of course we had to go have a peek.

 I'm not sure whats with the face but it was raining cats and dogs, lol

They might regret inviting us as we weren't very well behaved, just look what we did to the visitors log, lol. Ooops sorry to all on the Paper Trail..

Then it was time for us all to get to work. Dina kicked off first on the Friday night. Although Dina is a long time teacher in the industry, this was her debut class for Ranger and what a fabulous job she did.

The next day kicked off at some ungodly hour as Tim and I took on 80 students,, him in one room and me in another.

 All too soon the day was over and we began the big clean up…Yes your eyes are not deceiving you, that is Dina cleaning mats. Mind you they were Tim's lol.

A big thank you to all the Store owners who attended our classes, you were fabulous…even you…yes YOU.!!!

Unfortunately this is what I brought away from Boston, an infected spider bite, lol. But thanks to the fabulous treatment of one Dr O'Malley I am dosed up to the hilt with antibiotics and will live to see another day!!!

As the day ended we loaded up the car and started the 5 hr drive back to Ranger Headquarters where we will, of course, be getting up to all kinds of shenanigans!!! ahem sorry working extremely hard of course.

Heres my desk

And the view from my desk..look at all those drawers!!

They tell me they're having a meeting, but they look to be having too much fun for that.!! lol.

Okay think its time for a cuppa…

Enjoy xx
