First we had a trip to Poppys Chicolate Factory. I didn't even know we had this chocolate heaven place so close to home. Beautiful and delicious handmade chocolates mmmmmm!
We also managed a home decor shop, three fabric shops, an antique store, stopped for a cuppa and cake for morning tea, another cafe later in the day for lunch and then went back to the chocolate factory for another taste test and to purchase our chocolates (they would have melted if we'd bought them on the earlier visit!!!) if you're tired reading that paragraph then you can imagine how totally exhausted we all were at the end of our trip. Add non stop laughing and mucking around to that as well!!
We tried to pick up a couple of fellows at the antiques store but then remembered they wouldn't fit in the car with us.
I did pick up these little blue and white beauties though!
Finally some Tilda fabrics came home with me too. As well as some dress fabrics - I'd like to get back into sewing clothes again.
(Photo thanks to Sandi). I am very, very lucky to have such wonderful friends. We laugh together, understand each other, help as much as we can, listen to our problems and be there for each other through good and bad times. I appreciate these friendships I have so much. Oh did I mention we drive each other nuts as well? - or was that you had to be nuts to understand our group?
These little signs I got today are spot on.
Love these girls so much. Even scary-driving Helen, confused-navigating Boss Sandi, don't-take-my-photo Tess, my back-seat sharing Norreen (I thought of something else here, but behaved myself!) and the wine-loving Lush/Laurel. What a mixture we are and don't we have fun.
I'll sign off with a photo of the chocolate sample bag I bought. And there are some left today.... Really..... There is.....
Have a great day!
