Ally Pally


Blimey, it really has been an busy and hectic day yesterday at Alexandra Palace, but boy did I enjoy myself 🙂

Yes.. It was Mega busy, but super fun

Yes.. I got to meet up with some fab bloggers & friends

Yes.. I spend way too much money

No.. I don’t regret it 😀

Yes.. I had a whale of a time!


I was lucky enough to have a lift with Sonia who also took Shirley and Wendy *Waves girls!* and met up with Caz at Toddington station where we then followed the others to AllyPally.


Then it was soooo exciting to meet up with Sue and Joey, [[big hugs to the both of you]] and not forgetting Barb, Sue’s friend who took the photo! So glad I can finally put a face to your names as I feel like I’ve known you for ages!!

.. and Sue, can you please email your addy… I haven’t forgotten 8)


And then I had to meet up with my SU! sisters!!, here is Siobhan and Steph.. partners in

Steph said “we’ll just catch up with Marlene for 5 minutes”.. well .. the 5 minutes turned into 1 hour!!!  and I think we could have talked for many, many more!!!

It was such a pleasure seeing you gals, and can’t wait for October now!!!

I was nearly going to sign off without showing a little pic of my new goodies..


I’m thrilled as punch with my new nestie border and frame, got some right bargain bling words and the Cosmo Cricket papers are yummie!!!

It sure will be fun giving all this lot a new home in my room! and I hope to get creative too 🙂

Have a wonderful day everyone,

Hugs, Marlene x
