HugBinders Day

Ooooh Myyyy Goooodness what a day it was and the week before was pretty busy too !
This is in Nicks kitchen where the pages are being sorted ready for the book.

I wasn't a lot of use but did my best lol  Making tea is pretty easy really, and writing the names on the bottom of pages
The begining of the day in the local hall.  I wasn't there at 8.30am !!!  Well, I am old!  But all was under way by the time I had walked up there. A lovely walk, as I had, had a rather emotional start to the day knowing it would have been Johns 70th Birthday.  Well, if I admit to it, I am still a tad teary.

So we are off !
Here are all the ladies and gents involved, and what a grand bunch they were
Debs looking at me looking at her lol

and this is the badge Nicks made. They were all made with peoples names on and, of course the blue balloon!
The wonderful men who kept us watered and fed

Then the raffle which took ages as so many prizes were so gratefully received.  Yes, I did win a bit lol
Georgina [Nicks daughter] read out the names as I drew the tickets. Not sure what Nicks was doing haha!

I made a little thankyou speech at this point but don't think you want to see the photo !!

A fish and chip supper, a general clear up of the hall and home for voddie, pj's and feet up

A wonderful week for me albeit very emotional, but I did have a day out with the lovely Beryl on Thursday,  a very cold day so, kept to the shops to keep warm.

and here they all are ready for the Post Office to send out
and the END

But this one is coming home with me !!!
