Thanks for all your birthday wishes on my last post...... wow you ladies like a giveaway!!!

I've got a week off in October & I've been asked if I mind going to London for a meeting on the Friday..... Now normally I would say no but I do really enjoy these product days as you get to meet the buyers & sometimes the designers. It may be a bit sad but I enjoy listening to the ideas behind the products & love taking the information back to the store.

So I've asked if I could go up the day before & spend the night...... this means no 6am train for me...always good!! But I also get a day out in London for free!!
 I'm hoping they say yes as I've kind of made plans now to meet 2 lovely blogging ladies for a catch up.... it'll be a year since our first meeting.

Also I'll be meeting my old friend Teresa from Lincoln for the day..... really looking forward to it but what shall we do?...... last year we did the zoo, which I love but this year I have other plans....

Have you heard about it?

If you're a reader of my blog you'll know I love this book.... I did a post here.... you'll also know that I do love history & have travelled to WW1 battle sites.

I'd love to see this on the stage but I'll be taking a hankie!! 

Has anyone seen it yet??

A friend went this week & said it was excellent but the reviews are not great.... it goes on for nearly 3 hours..... I'm just hoping Teresa wants to go.... better get sweet talking!!

By the way it's at the Comedy Theatre..... why???? Is it funny????

So tomorrow night I'm off to my nieces wedding, it makes me feel really old as she wasn't even 1 when me & OH got together now she's old enough to marry!! 
Of course I've left my outfit until the last minute..... I had it all planned but can't find my boots anywhere.... I'll have to re think.... I was hoping to wear a dress but I wonder if at the last minute I just chuck my jeans on!! 
I'm doing a 10 hour day at work first so I won't even care what I look like, I'm also working the next day :(

Don't forget you've got until Tuesday 28th September to leave a comment on my last post to be entered in the giveaway.

Have a great weekend what ever you're doing


  1. Love, love that book...but the comedy theatre!! now that is a puzzle. Hope you get to go and enjoy it!

  2. We have that book, but I haven't read it yet. Hope you have a wonderful time! Susie xxx

  3. I'm looking forward to catching up!

  4. That looks like a good book -- must check it out. Hope you enjoy the play!
    I do love me a good wartime romance. I watched "The Shell Seekers" last night (the version with Vanessa Redgrave as Penelope) -- so good. But sad to see poor Richard go off to D-Day never to return ;(.

  5. one of the (few) things i miss about my old job was the chance that it gave me to get up to London on a fairly regular basis, and I always managed to fit in a catch up with old friends, or the chance to do a bit of shopping/museum/gallery browsing - the opportunities you just don't get down here. Have a great time.

  6. that movie looks so good...How fun would that be to meet up with blogging buddies!

  7. Hello Josie! My friend Kelly suggested me to get to meet you!
    Have fun in London!
