Mission accomplished.

Hi there.
Just got in the back door,
so a quick hi and bye, before I go to bed and sleeeep!

Day 4 at the NEC was actually quite pleasant. 
Lots of lovely peeps, and the Clarity Design Team was there in force, too, which always makes for a good buzz. Thank you to everybody who visited us and supported us x

When the bell finally went for last orders at 5 o'clock today, a great cheer went up through the hall, which said it all really. 
And in the twinkling of an eye, the stands were being ripped apart...


Vans poured in, cages were packed and loaded, and the seasoned show circuit circus was back on the road.
We took our sweet time, packing everything away carefully,


It looked so lovely, the Clarity stand. We were so chuffed with it.


Was a lot faster coming down though!


Martine from Oyster, our resident trolley dolly, (or tart with a cart as she fondly called herself), was out and down the M40 like a whippet!


Long days, long show. But still smiling. 

End of transmission. Beeeeeeeep.

Lots of love, Barb xx

  24. I'm sure you're glad to be home and sleeping in your own bed! The photos were a lovely peek into the show, and hope that one day (maybe when I retire!!) I'll get to join you. Susan x

  25. Hi Barbara. Glad to hear that the last day was a good 'un. No doubt you slept well after such a hectic few days. I can't believe you found the energy to blog when you got home last night! Or were you on that high that happens once you finally get home sometimes.
    I remember that feeling well from years ago when we did the agricultural show circuit. Dismantling the stand always took far less time than setting it up, thank goodness.
    I hope you have time for a breather before plunging back into work again. See you at Ally Pally in a few weeks : ). Take care x

  31. I hope it was all worth it in the end Barbara, take a rest today, I bet your feet are sore, and probably your throat too!

  35. Glad it went so well Barbara and in the main was well attended. Unfortunately I have had so much to do recently that there wasn't a spare day to come visit, but hopefully I will get to one of the shows in the not too distant future, You deserve a bit of 'you' time now I feel! x
