What a wonderful surprise...

...I had yesterday, and what wonderful friends I have :o)
One of our crafting group had invited me out to lunch with her for my 70th birthday pressie. She picked me up yesterday lunchtime and off we went. She hadn't told me where we were going. When we arrived at the Rose & Crown at Middle Mayfield, Ashbourne, there was the rest of our crafting group sat sitting waiting for us, all apart from the Lovely Dizzy Di who is recovering from surgery, You were sadly missed Di. I hadn't a clue. Pauline and I had been chatting on the journey, about 40 minutes and I had asked how come we were going so far (she'd had to borrow my satnav cuz hers had stopped working) she said the place had been recommended by friends and I believed her every word!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyhow, if you live near enough then go and sample the excellent food there, it was a wonderful meal in a beautiful old Inn with the best company any crafter could ever want.
Thank you so much to my wonderful friends, they are such beautiful people :o)
Unfortunately it's back to earth with a big bump now as I have to go back to work after my fantastic week off!

Belated birthday wishes to you Jackie - sounds like you had a really fabulous time. I love surprise parties like this. Have a wonderful year.

I'm just getting back to a more "normal" routine and catching up on everyone - so sorry I missed the actual day - but as you know it's been a bit difficult here.

Hugs,Deborah xx
