Thanks for popping in.
Won’t stay long today; Linda Williams and Rob are here until tomorrow, and I want to make the most of our time together.
It is quite a performance having to clear the Open Day Hall by 6pm. But thanks to all the Clarity lads, not a problem. All done and dusted by bang on 5.45pm.
As I always say, Teamwork makes the dream work.
The last couple of days have been a resounding success at many different levels. I cannot even begin to express my gratitute to everybody involved. It is the culmination of weeks of hard graft for many – and it paid off. I’m not talking about money either. Don’t even know what went through the till. Money’s not my driver. Never was. Never will be.
But what a celebration it was! The buzz in the room, the chatter, the laughter, the generosity. You had to be there to feel the love, as they say…
When you stand up on that chair on the hour every hour, and you look across at the sea of interested, creative, lovely, kind, sharing, caring people, all caught up in art and craft, it quite takes your breath away. I cannot think of any place like it.
Thank you so very much if you came and joined in. It really was special, wasn’t it?
If you’re happy, I’m happy. That’s a fact.
I am joyous that so many folks got such a kick out of our efforts.
Off the hook now. Job’s done. All good. Now Dave and I are free to go and get married, spend time with our family and friends and celebrate again!
And we get to do it all again in Leyburn, North Yorkshire on Saturday 8th September, with the Linda/Barbie/Paul Parchment Workshop on the Sunday.
Plenty of time to recover! Tickets for that gig go on sale on Tuesday.
Love & Hugs,
