Ally Pally – 1 down, 1 to go….

Hi there.
Thanks for popping in.
Just got back home after Day 1 at Ally Pally.
We commute to and fro. 
Firstly, to pick up fresh stock from Clarity Towers,
and secondly, because it’s always best to sleep in your own bed 
if you can! 
Saw loads of lovely, familiar faces and friends.
Ally Pally is our local show in a way. 
It was really busy in the morning, but emptied out pretty early.
My guess is that the terrorist attack on the train in London yesterday will have impacted the footfall. Certainly wasn’t the buzz around the hall that there is usually. But we had a good day.
People came with shopping lists!
You’ve just got to keep going, haven’t you.
Here is a great pic of the Clarity crew on Set-up, 
and the Hochanda TV crew.
We all get on very, very well. They work as hard as we do!
Forgive me if I don’t stop long this evening.
Just time for a curry and a film, but I must get the plates in the oven
Thank you for your very kind words yesterday.
Didn’t see that coming! But it certainly made me feel that I must be doing something right. So yeah. Thanks again.
Love & Hugs,

  7. Hello Barbara

    From where I am standing you are doing everything right! See you tomorrow. I am Billy No-mates as the bombing has freaked out a few husbands who have asked their wives not to go.


  8. Lovely to meet you today. Lots of Demi's and advice. It was very quiet in the afternoon, but met some lovely people. Putting my feet up new with a cuppa so that I'm ready for the Memory walk tomorrow. Hope you and the team have a good day tomorrow xx

  9. Lovely to see you today although briefly, you were so busy first off couldn't get near the stall to get my goodies, but did eventually. The hall did clear pretty early in the afternoon so could have been the terrorist thing, felt safe there though, plenty of security, hope you enjoyed your curry and film and that you didn't loose too much trade after all the hard work you all put in. Love and hugs Pam xx

  10. Glad you had a good day and hope you enjoyed your curry! Read the news yesterday and thinking of all those affected by the incident. It's another hot day in Crete so it will be book, pool and audio book in some sort of order. Have a good day xxx

  11. Pleased your day went well at Ally Pally but why wouldn't it? I just wish I wasn't so far away from everything.
    Can anyone tell me where I can find the gallery of the design team's work. I particularly want to look at their designs for the wedding Groovi . I'm not on Facebook or any social media. Thanks xx
