A Golden Day! 'WOYWWers United'.

Len and I have an expression if a day has been really special - we call it a 'Golden Day'. And yesterday was certainly one of those:
From start to finish, it was fun all the way! Left to right are fellow WOYWWers: Elizabeth, Jan, Julia - the start of it all and yours truly.

What a great time we had and were welcomed with open arms by the lovely Jan our hostess and her husband Gordon (not forgetting G3 of course)! Julia was as mad as ever, she makes me laugh so much, along with Jan they are a perfect duo. And then, our Elizabeth down from Ayr on holiday, the gentlest lady you could wish to meet and her EM, Alan - who I think might even be a closet crafter, he knew what Distress Inks were for goodness sakes! Impressed we were. :) And not forgetting Julia's husband Barry who was so patient waiting to be fed after a long hard day whilst we were gabbing and trotting around Shopkeeper Gal's craft shop.

Oooer, I almost forgot, I've seeeeeeen Queen Julia's craft room for myself, you would love to be let loose in there! I did remark, whilst sitting in Jan's garden later in the afternoon, that 'I'd love to do a supermarket streak round Julia's craft room'. Oops, of course I meant a 'supermarket sweep' to gather up all the lovely goodies she plays with - but hey, ho - as always, I got it a bit wrong!

Phew, what a fabulous day - I was totally whacked, not from real tiredness but just the excitement of it all.

I took Friday Feast with me for dessert - recipe will appear later today., what was I thinking, today is only Thursday and tomorrow is Friday. Told you it was an exciting day :)

Thank you ladies (and gents) for my truly Golden Day!

Samantha Elliott said...

Nice to put faces to names. Are you not "four calling birds" then!!

MaryH said...

So nice to see the photo and I'm so happy for you that you had a "Golden Day". I'm learning new phrases here at the playground. ('onion layers' earlier in the week).Good phrases of course...ones I can use in polite company.

Amanda said...

Oh wow you all look like you enjoyed yourselves, meeting up with crafting friends is truly wonderful, I love being able to chat about glue without anyone thinking I have taken up glue sniffing lol. Hugs, Amanda x

Julia Dunnit said...

I'm still behind...spent yesterday pretending to catch up, but haven't at all! It was a great, fun shiny golden day and big thanks to you and Jan for catering, and isnt it lovely that we can promise ourselves to do it again. standby, LLJ has had a cracking idea!!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Great friends, lots of laughs, yummy lunch and SUNSHINE!! What could possibly be better than that?? LOL
Thank you for oming over and the delicious pud :P

Glenda said...

I would have given my eye teeth to have been a part of this group! How lucky you ladies are to be able to be close enough to get together. Most of us are spread out over the world with no hope of ever meeting you! Glad it was a pleasant meeting!

famfa said...

LOVE the picture ladies, and now this post just makes me want to see more of Julia's room other than her desk! I sure wish I had some WOYWW ladies close by me, but seems like I am the only one representing NC! Glad ya'll had fun! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Neesie said...

What a fabulous day you had! Great memories!

Rita said...

What a great piccie Di, you all look so happy, but of course you would anyway ( silly me ). Just a bit green to have missed all the fun. What great memories you will all have on such a 'Golden Day'. TFS. Hugs Rita xx

Morti said...

I'm sad I missed it - Jan did ask me along but I had to work.... sulk...sulk...grizzle....grizzle...

Oh well - I know what the wonderful idea is so I'll pencil myself in on that one for sure!

Glad you had a great time...

Neet said...

What a lovely photograph of the four of you - a great way to remember such a marvellous day.

So glad it was one of the Golden ones.
Hugs, Neet xx

What a great photo!!! Oh, if only I could have been there too.....

I like that saying "Golden Day."

Hugs,

Paula Gale said...

Oh Di

What a marvellous thing that you all managed a get together. I can only imagine what a laugh a minute that must have been. I am completely green with envy that you managed it... I would love to do the same some time. While obviously Elizabeth lives a fair few miles away, at least she was on holiday down your way - not sure a day trip would be long enough for me - I'd want much longer (mind you, i'm overdue a holiday - and think that maybe I deserve one (according to ME anyway!!!).

So glad you had such a golden day - what more could you ask for?

Love and hugs
