Be careful what you say ...................

Because you might just get what you ask for and more!

When the Dollies were coming over, I had a look at the long range forecast, as you do, and was disappointed to see that we were likely to be in for a wet weekend. Not a problem as being crafters, I knew we would be able to find something to do, so when the first morning dawned clear and fine, I was happy. When the second day dawned, also clear and sunny I began to hope that it would stay fine till they had to go home, and thought to myself, if it will just hang on it can rain all it likes on Monday. Now here's the rub, be very careful what you ask for, hail, strong winds and driving rain was not exactly what I was thinking of when I said it could rain all it liked!

What a Weekend!

4 Dollies, a car, good weather and good food, what more can a girl want or need? Dolly OCD arrived first, collected and nearly missed by Dolly Traybake's husband and delivered to LSS (Local Scrap Shop), closely followed the next day, by Dolly Dunnit and Dolly Traybake. Now let the fun commence :)

A lot of talking, well we did have a lot to catch up with! Followed by a token amount of crafting in The Cat House with a LOT more talking and catching up, so far, so good.

The weather forecast had not looked at all promising, so we had no plans set in concrete, in fact we did not even have any set in mildly damp sand! So the great outdoors was peered at with trepidation, but YEAH! sun was shining and all was was well, a trip up the Antrim Coast was a must, ending with a visit to a ..........wait for it .......... you will never guess ............. a ........ craft shop! I will never tire of showing of the beautiful scenery here, seems the English contingent were quite impressed too!

Food was provided courtesy of Dolly Traybake and the local Thai. That went down well too :) Everyone holding up well.

Then came the Ulster Fry, oooops, that on top of sea air, shopping, chatting, giggling and generally misbehaving like schoolchildren was just toooooo much for some :)
This was the best weekend for a long time girlies, thank you all so much for making it easy, fun and even Mr Froggie says he will will welcome you with open arms next time (note NEXT time!) He is proud to be a survivor of a Dolly get together :)
