"We're all going on a Summer Holiday ..."
Have you got the tune in your head? Good.
Let me hear you sing ...
"We're all going on a Febby Holiday ..."
Let me explain ... if I can stop squealing for long enough. *Squeal*
Ann, Irene and myself have been pals now for many years having 'met' online through an MSN cardmaking group and there was an instant bond of friendship between us.
Since then there have been a gazillion phone calls between us and we have probably spent far more hours than we should admit to, gas-bagging about family, work and, of course, crafting.
I have met up with Irene several times, when visiting Sunderland with my daughter for ten pin bowling tournaments ... and Irene has met Ann more times than I can remember ... AND they've even had sleepovers!
Sadly, we've never managed to coordinate our individual schedules well enough to organise a 'threesome' - although in fairness, living a few hundred miles away from them has been a major factor.
With a little 'jiggery-pokery' behind the scenes, we are finally, finally going to get together - all of us - in one place - at the same time! EEEK! Can you imagine? *Squeal*
I can guarantee it will be an absolute hoot, with laughter on the agenda every day!! How on earth will we cope?! My butterflies have butterflies! *Squeal* *Squeal*
My hubby has expressed concern about whether my snoring will be an issue BUT as I only snore when I'm asleep ... and I'm far too excited for that ... problem solved!
Now, as we will be away having fun together from 19th - 26th February, that obviously means that Bah! Humbug! will be unmanned for a week.
Shock! Horror!! Unthinkable!!!
We have made the decision to have a Challenge- Free week and let you all enjoy a wee breather too. Aren't we just the kindest Challenge Hostesses you know? My advice is that you take this opportunity to charge your batteries ready for our return, as I promise it will be full steam ahead for the rest of the year.
Soooo ... I hope you will all forgive us being selfish and allow us this little indulgence ... just this once. We'll probably be back before you even miss us.
As I started with a song, I thought I'd finish with one too ...
"I'm so excited!
An' I just can't hide it!
I'm about to lose control and I think I like it!"
