As already said, last weekend I was away on a school reunion on the outskirts of Leeds. Had a fabulous time but one of the real highlights for me was a trip to the Lili of the Valley (LOTV) showroom/shop in Farsley (15 minutes from the hotel) on the Friday morning before all the celebrations got under way later that afternoon.
Talk about being in Seventh Heaven - and all the more so as a Playmate came along to meet up and play as well! That's our Kath of 'Plain and Simple'. Yay! What a lovely lady, exactly as I imagined her to be. We shopped a bit and then (as places to spend time over a light lunch or coffee are thin on the ground nearby) Lisa at LOTV was sweet enough to welcome us to stay on so the three of us spent ages at a table tucked in the corner, sitting with coffees having a jolly good natter.
I don't have a photo of Kath and I together, we're both a bit camera shy it turns out, so we dithered about and never did get a photo taken. It was just wonderful to finally meet up in real life!
But, I did take a couple of photos of the LOTV shop and their fabulous displays though - well worth a visit if you're ever in the area as the samples alone are just amazing! Lucy - you would have been in your element!
