OmG eXhAuStEd.............

Home safe and sound and exhausted BUT I have had the BeSt time in Sydney..................
chatting, late nights, eating out, tears, lots of LOL, shopping, 
I am so tired...........
thanks to "MY FRIENDS" my luggage was HeAvY.....lucky I had space in my suitcase............
I am to tired to get a decent post organised so will share these group pics that others who were there may want to use.........
Thursday after closing waiting for girls to gather to leave together we had a quick catch up with SueAnne a surprise bonus as I didn't know she was there and I have been following her blog for quite a few years
the blog meet on Friday was wonderful..........
yep they are all bloggers there chatting............
does anyone have a better group photo......trying to get 33? bloggers organised for a group shot I think is impossible..............this one is missing a few girls on the edges.........
Saturday we hadn't planned a blog meet but were in desperate need for a cuppa and more food after a workshop and between a few phone calls and a quick email thank goodness for SMART phones we had another smaller gathering of girls.........
i'll come back with heaps more pics of the quilt show, shopping, catch ups, workshops etc........but for now i'm going to eat some tea and head to bed.............
bloggers are the best......all you girls are just so friendly and so much fun..........
wished I could rewind to Thursday morning and do it all again........(maybe I am to tired for that though)
Catch you later..............
An exhausted Chookyblue........
PS I'll try and go again in a couple of years...............might take that long for me and the bank account to recover lol............

  1. So glad you had a great time. I love my blogging friends (modern day pen pals). At the moment one has a new baby on the way at 43 years old, one is a widow about to marry again, another has baby No 3 on the way - all so exciting and I get to share in it all! I love it!

    Cheers - Joolz

  26. It looks like you had a wonderful time, how nice to meet other bloggers. It probably felt like you knew them already. I was sorry I couldn't go this time but I'm getting a new sewing room built so the funds wouldn't stretch, there is always next time.
