Thanks for popping in. It’s all go go go here. I was just enjoying a little down time with Dave for a couple of days, but those two pesky gits Wurka and Hollick crept in during the night,
so I saddled up the old workhorse early. Never mind. We have had a wonderful break with our kids, families and friends. Yesterday, we opened all the cards and gifts which we received in peace too. Unbelievable generosity and thoughtfulness. Very humbling to think of the many hundreds of collective hours our friends spent creating gifts and artwork for Dave and myself…. I shall tell you more next week….
Before we fly off to Germany on business next week, I want to flag up the next BIG Clarity event on the horizon:
LEYBURN OPEN DAY – SATURDAY 8TH SEPTEMBER 2018
9:00am – 4:00pm
£6.00 per ticket.
Blimey. Can you believe that the Crowborough Open Days were less than a fortnight ago?? This time two weeks ago, we were in full swing, eating cakes and having a grand old time. Good grief! It feels like months ago! But that might have to do with the fact that we rolled straight into our Wedding week! Go go go girl!!!!
The Clarity Crew are set to entertain in Leyburn too. Linda Williams was in Crowborough and at the wedding too! So she’s been haring about the country, from Wales to Crowborough and back. Then quick turnaround and back to Kent for the wedding weekend. To know her is to love her.
Same with Sam Crowe. She came all the way from the Newcastle area twice! And that’s a miracle, because she’s hopeless at map reading! Thank heaven for friends who drove ! But to know her is to love her too.
Yep. Dee too. And Maria. And Tina. And Heather. These good women are not only Clarity Design Team players; they are also my close friends and I love them dearly. It blows me away how loving and loyal and kind they all are. Even though they live so far away, we are a very, very tight unit. And the longer we travel down this Clarity path together, the tighter the bond.
And Paul Church? Well, he’s only down the road from us, but you know he’s always ALWAYS got my back. And he’s been hopping round, covering us at work, on the blog and on TV during this crazy period. In fact, he is on TV on Sunday – and so is Linda Williams !! So you see, it’s not just me running around like a headless chicken! Tina was on TV yesterday. Didn’t she do a cracking job?! Beautful demos and designs once again.
Yep. I say again: Teamwork makes the dream work.
But back to Leyburn. It’s just one day instead of two, and the tickets are selling fast. Over 60% of our guest capacity has already gone, so do order your ticket(s) quickly if you would like to join us.
Where exactly is it?
Tenants Auction House in Leyburn, North Yorkshire. It is a superb venue. If we lived up North, it would certainly have been our Wedding venue of choice. What a beautiful place!
An added Sunday Workshop
There is one more thing I want to flag up to you. On the Sunday following the Saturday (9th September), Linda, Paul and I are running a 1-day Parchment Workshop from 9am-4pm. Groovi and traditional parching skills will be combined. Linda will be up the deep end, teaching the more advanced work and I will be teaching the less complicated stuff nearer the shallow end! (Paul? He will be paddling somewhere in between!). So whether you are what you would consider to be a complete beginner or a seasoned parcher, there’s a place at the table for you!
We had a superb parchment retreat here down south in March. A 2-day retreat at the Spa. It was very well received, but it is a long way for the folks oop norf to travel. So we would like to extend the same opportunity to our northern parchment friends. Just one day though. 9am-4pm, lunch and refreshments included. £100 (less your Club discount). Limited spaces available. Please call the office and speak to Jeannine (01732 868215, Mon-Fri).
If the March retreat in Tunbridge Wells is anything to go by, it will be delightful, educational and a very uplifting experience.
Time to go.
Love & Hugs,
