Thank you for stopping by.
Well, they say the early bird catches the worm.
But do they tell you that on Fridays, the early bird doesn’t really care about worms, and would much rather stay in bed?!
Day 5 of our Clarity Retreat today.
In case you weren’t aware, we have been having a whale of a time here in sunny Crowborough this week.
It started with a Royal visit first thing Monday morning,
which was all very exciting.
We were all there in our aprons
to welcome the Duke of Edinburgh,
on the way out....
and on the way back!
He did look so well. What a handsome gentleman.
Great ice-breaker! Couldn’t have planned it better!
So for 4 days now,
we have been welcoming Clarity friends
from all over the UK.
Everybody stayed for 2 days;
most folks had been last year.
And the year before.
And the year before that.
Anne and I have known each other for, what? 15 years?
Here was a table hard at it.
Naomi, Claire and Linda were all the way from Ireland.
Lovely to see couples crafting together, too
Jocelyn and Doug - it was their anniversary.
Helen and Mike.
Hang on... don’t I recognise those two?
and this group just couldn’t sit still!
So yes. We have been having a blast.
Oh, and even made some nice cards.
It’s funny with the annual retreats.
We spend weeks preparing for them,
get all excited about meeting up.
And before you know it,
the time has come to say bye bye until next year.
Much like Christmas I suppose...
And so this morning, a new group of guest is wending its way to our retreat in the High Weald of East Sussex.
So I really must press on.
