Anyway, I also did my bit for international relations by having a conversation with a young lady from New York who was sitting at the next table to me. It was interesting to talk to her about their education system, she's in college which is university. I also tried to explain Guy Fawkes and Bonfire night to her,..............I think she felt we were a bit barbaric!!!!! And to be frank trying to explain quite why we celebrate the non-blowing up of King James and the hanging, drawing and quartering of Guy Fawkes with a bonfire and fireworks kind of got me thinking maybe we are too. Anyway I do like a pretty firework.
Sitting there after she'd gone I was reading my new Crochet magazine which has incidentally given me some ideas for Xmas prezzies, I saw they had been looking on the lovely Lucy from Attic 24, so it reminded of something I found last night and it's a neat segway into tomorrow night's blog party. There I was lying in bed the other night reading an old copy of Scrapbook Inspirations, so sad, when I spied with my little eye 2 lovely blog friends, Abi and Sian. They had layouts featured in there so I know 2 well famous people apart from Shimelle now, yey me.
So remember, remember the 6th of November, blogging, cake and friendly fun, we're meeting at 8 so don't be late, there'll be prizes and lots of fun.
