All that we have done!

Late night or early morning?

Drive through the night, while the traffic is non existant or stay overnight.  Decisions , decisions of a ribbon seller working in Glasgow but lives in Dorset!

It was such a clear night, no traffic, not a hint of rain, snow, sleet, wind, fog (you name it we have over the years had it all on our return trip from Glasgow) that the decision was made for us. We worked out we could make home by just gone 2am, and wake up in our own bed - yeah lets go for it!

We did wave at you all as we whizzed past your homes in the wee hours, but no one returned the greeting.

We would like to thank everyone that came to see us at the SECC, we had a fantastic time, you are all so friendly.  It was great to put some faces to names, if you visited on Sunday I promise the tutorial will be up and running for wednesday - arrrh non visitors will have to wait and see, tee hee.

Sam was on top form after school today and was soooooo excited to see the van, that we let him pick the Friday FREEBIE winner, while sat behind the steering wheel.  Do you think he was having fun?

The winning number was......

 39 = Sandra
hope you enjoyed the show in glasgow, although i live in dunfermline scotland, i couldnt make it.  there's loads of ribbons i would love to have! i have been sorting out my spare room finally to make more room for more ribbon goodies. i keep on adding to them!!! fingers crossed i win this week, am making easter baskets for my grandchildren and i've been using easter ribbon i bought from you with my bowdabra. fab!! have a good weekend. x

Hi Sandra, shame you could not make the show, but you are a Friday FREEBIE winner and have £20 to spend in our ribbon Shop - all you have to do is email me at and I will send you the details of your voucher.  Sorry to everyone else who left such wicked comments.  Mr Grumpy soon turned into Mr Happy once we got to the show.  We had so many people trying to look at our button units that we created a traffic jam down the aisle!!! Customers patiently waited to get access to our "Cut your Own" ribbons, which also created a queue.  It was such a busy show that I did not get a chance to walk round either of the two halls.  The only stands I saw were the ones I passed enroute to the loo!

My desk is partially filled with seam binding challenge goodies, I got a little bit behind sharing the easter goodies with you, but I will start again tomorrow - for some strange reason I am a bit tired now!  Think I will go home for a long soak in the bath and an early night.
