l'm Back !

Good morning everyone, We finally made it to the uk on the Monday the 6th, we had to fly into Manchester airport then we booked a coach to take us down to Birmingham,3 and half hours.What a weekend we had trying to reschedule our cancelled flight on Saturday the 4th.We were so upset when we heard that the spanish airtraffic controllers had just all walked out ! We had heard nothing at this end, untill the spanish news informed everyone on the friday evening..We had all our cases packed and ready to leave the following morning, so we started to panic thinking we may be effected too..and we were right ! the follwing day all hell broke loose at all the spanish airports as it was a another massive walk out.. But, at least we got away monday.. We arrived back from the Uk yesterday afternoon.We had a lovely time seeing Marcos and Sam.Little Bella,their puppy is a sweetheart ! They were working whilst we were there, so Amanda and l had a wonderful girly few days shopping , shopping and more shopping hehe!We also visited the 'German christmas market' thats held in Bimingham every year.It was so pretty and we picked up a few glass tree ornaments. It was very cold, but we loved it !It certainly didn't deter us LOL...Didn't get to visit any craft shops,as was too busy getting christmas pressy's for everyone and checking out M&S and BHS..we don't have those stores here...l will be visiting your blogs very soon to see what you have all been doing..Today we are out to lunch with my sister and family for a catch up ! Wishing you all a lovely Sunday and happy crafting! Hugs Susan x

No crafting for me, but l do hope to visit a few craft shops and have a lovely time 'touching' the goodies,( and buying! hehee) something that when ordering on the websites is impossible, and really takes the fun out of craft shopping.
