Well I hardly know where to start. Wild Ideas is back with a bang this week.
Sunday was the mother-in-laws 75th birthday meal at Littleover Lodge, and true to form my hubby decided that last minute shopping on Saturday was fine for a birthday present, (especially as we only had a couple of hours to get back for my 3 year old to get to a party at Wacky Warehouse and then get all the way to Wolverhampton by 4 to pick up the 7 year old from a beaver sleepover camp)
So there we are in Lichfield with the drizzle and we walk past the guildhall. There’s a craft fair on and it looks inviting – at least its inside and dry, and should be good for a pressie.
Upstairs we went, and chatty old me got chatting and immediately spotted the opportunity for some impromptu networking with some stall holders.
Got a super free goody bag and beauty advice from Kate Mcgeary skincare at https://uk.nyrorganic.com/shop/katemcgeary.
Got a great necklace for my lovely mother-in-law from Tina Kelsall – designs by tina who unfortunately does not have any website info on her card.
The necklace buying took a bit of time trying to choose and my 3 year old spiderman got very bored. “Come ON mummy” is the general phrase in a very authoritative tone accompanied by hanging on my let and pulling hard enough to almost tackle me to the ground.
Fortunately there was a nice tea and cake stall and dad saved the day with a chocolate cornflake cake.
With a promise to be quick with my hellos to some other stall holders, dad and spidey waited – but in the end they left me – and I was still there 30 mins later when they returned.
I successfully networked with Gina’s Jewellery – no website to tell you
and Marion Wignall with her great scarves at http://www.facebook.com/Accentuations2011
Then there was Cari Brewer and her Butterfly bracelets at http://www.facebook.com/butterflybracelets2012.
then last but by no means least Vicki Suzuki with her jewellery and her lovely angels and fairies – these are really pretty. http://folksy.com/shops/urchin
Finally I had to let spidey and dad drag me away – so we did not miss the wacky party http://www.wackywarehouse.co.uk/locations/all/15/ which went very well. After all with soft play with your fiends fish fingers and a silly man making you laugh what more does a 3 year old need.
And this was all at the beginning of the week…….
there no room for more now, and I did promise not to waffle
so I will have to tell you about the rest of my week next time….
