Thanks for popping in. Mega scramble here this morning. Piling more stash than I will ever be able to demo this side of the General Election (Ugh) into boxes, ready to add to the van for the NEC set-up. Have also packed enough clobber to last till Christmas, should I feel the urge to stay in Birmingham!
So yeah. Carefully mapped out strategy, to be employed over the next 5 days. It’s an old favourite of mine. See if you can work it out…It’s called TEATYWFA.
Gotta go. Dave’s revving up the car outside, so that could be an indicator that he wants to leave.
Tell you what though, before I shoot. On a purely feminine note here. I decided at 6 this morning that I’d not bother with eye make-up on Set-up day. Sod it, I thought. Got too much else to do before we leave. So, bundled all the bags and suitcase into the kitchen, ready to go. Then I reconsidered. Mmm. You never know who you’re going to bump into, do ya? (That deeply seated thought process stretches right back to this old yarn, I reckon: “I hope you’re wearing clean underwear. Imagine if you get hit by a bus on the way to school.” Like I would be worried about my knickers if I got mowed down by a double-decker!). Back to the make-up… And you do look better with a little mascara and lippy Gray, I convinced myself. Even Dave agreed (walking on very thin ice there, matie)..so I rummaged in the hold-all for my make up bag, to go back upstairs and slap it on. AND. I hadn’t even packed it!!! Yikes!!!! That could have been a calamity. An expensive one, if I’d had to re-buy that lot in Birmingham! The older I get the more I need! There was a time I managed admirably with a lippy in my back pocket. Now it takes two well fed males to lift it. The make-up bag, darling, the make-up bag!
Right. Best go, before Dave leaves without me. Mmmm…on the other hand….
See you there I hope!! Stand C01 x Make it your hub. Make it your meeting place. Come and hang out with Clarity!
