A Wonderful Day

No picture to share, but just wanted to record a memory of a great day all due to an interest in crafting.

My pal Jacque (some may know her as Sassie) is up to stay for a few days to share my "Hip Hip Hooray" day as she calls it, and today we had joined some other craft friends from Joanna Sheen's craft forum, for lunch and a good old natter!    We do meet occasionally at craft events, but normally it is only over a quick cuppa and a sarnie and we are off spending again!

Today Jacque and I and my eldest granddaughter drove up to nr Guildford to our mutual friend Donna's house, where we were joined by two other friends Jan and Jo.   Donna's daughter is the same age as my granddaughter, and they had already met at a craft event earlier this year and hit it off - so went and did their own thing together, whilst the grown-ups nattered.  My daughter (another Sheenie) would have joined us, but she is off on a Guiding trip tomorrow with my granddaughter, and by not coming with us she was able to sort out their packing without any interference!  Hopefully she will be able to join us next time.

Donna provided us with a spot of lunch, and we really had the most enjoyable relaxing day.   A few years ago I didn't know the existence of these people, and through craft and the forum, I have made some lovely friends and although we rarely actually see each other face to face, when we do so it is just so relaxed and no standing on ceremony and it is like catching up with family.    (and to tell the truth, we didn't even discuss much craft today!)

Thank you ladies (and the youngsters) for a smashing day.  Here's to the next gathering!
