My Saturday

Look who I met today!!!!

That's Di on the right and me on the left.

It's Di!

To say that it was lovely to meet Di today would not be telling you the truth.  If I'm being truly honest with you folks, I have to say that it was a PRIVILEGE to meet Di.  'Nice' and 'lovely' don't cut it as the adjectives in this scenario.  As Di was in Belfast for the weekend, she and Judith arranged for the three of us to meet for coffee this afternoon and it was the fastest 3 hour cup of coffee ever!  We met, we hugged, we chatted, shared and laughed and it was great!

And here's the three of us in the men's suit dept of House of Fraser (?!)

L-R: Me, Di and Judith

where Judith (politely) accosted a handsome young sales assistant and asked him to take this piccy, after the kind older gentleman we asked to take our photo at the coffee table actually managed to turn off our two cameras and one mobile phone instead of taking the pics!  (Bless him.) We thought we needed to find someone who might actually be a little more familiar with the technology for the second attempt!  

Don't we just look so pleased with ourselves?  (My hubby thinks it looks like we're kidnapping Di!  Hmm, maybe next time ...)

And you will not believe the loveliness that Di had as a wee gift for me.  Isn't this little coin pouch just so bright and happy? 

But wait 'til you see the back ...

I'm so thrilled!  It's my blog header on fabric.  Did you hear that?   MY BLOG HEADER ON FABRIC!!!  With a little help from Trudi, Di made this wee pouch so personal.  Isn't it great?  It's going to be shown off now to everybody I can possibly pin down.  I love it, love it, LOVE IT!  Thank you Di!  And thanks to Trudi for helping you out, too.

What a smashing Saturday afternoon!!


  1. OMG! That pouch is priceless. But I am not sure who was luckier, you to meet Di, or her to meet you.

  2. It was a brilliant afternoon! I like the idea of kidnapping Di and keeping her all to ourselves! Jxo

  3. what a fantastic pouch. I met Di at the retreat weekend and she really is a lovely person. Glad that you had a good afternoon together

  4. Looks like you had a great time..and I love the little bag!

  5. It was a great afternoon. Thanks for making my visit special. I have just arrived home tonight and re-entered reality. Kidnapping sounds good! Alternatively we will have to plot another day out! Di x
