Craft club

Hi gang, now I wanted to let everyone know that we will be having a craft club on Monday, that's the 13th. I hope everyone will be able to make it, and if you haven't been before of course you are more than welcome. We hold the club at Jubilee Hall, which is on the corner of Cow Lane and Wincheap road (just as you pass the Kings Head and the pedestrian crossing if you were coming from Canterbury, you will see it tucked behind the car park). We start at 7.30. There will be refreshments, and of course it's Christmas, so I'll bring along mince pies. I'll be making Christmas decorations with my wonderful scented glitter (mmmm). I'm hoping people will bring along tips and techniques to decorate the house and tree for Christmas. I'll be bringing along some crafty bargains as well, because I need to organise myself and do a little bit of sorting - ready for my big move!

The big move, well I'm very very sad to be saying it will be my last proper club night in Canterbury. I really hope the ladies will keep it going, as it's a great place to come along to share idea's, and I hope I'll get invited back to maybe do classes or workshops when I visit. Sob, yep I'm leaving Canterbury. I'm leaving with a very heavy heart. We escaped to Canterbury after we lost Jacob, to try and start again, and I really fell in love with the city. It's so friendly, there's loads to do, brilliant pubs..........sob. My new job of course meant I wasn't here much - to be honest this hasn't really been a problem, I've enjoyed coming home and going back to work - but the real problem has been the fact I haven't anywhere to live with the dogs when I'm in Peterborough - and the recent event with my dog walker really forced my hand to make the move. I've found a lovely house in Peterborough, with a big garden which I know the dogs will love (so will I, it'll dull the sadness of leaving my brilliant allotment). It's close to work, so I'll be able to nip in on them if I've a long day.

I'm really really going to miss Canterbury, and I'm promising myself I'll be back. I will be visiting of course, so I hope I won't loose all my crafty friends I have made - and you never know I may make even more when I do classes.

That's my news, all of this will be happening in the new year, so I'm attempting to organise myself, do lots of visiting, along with everything else of course! Always something to keep us busy eh! Can't wait to get my dogs back though, and I hope to see friendly faces on Monday...... xx

I'm sure the move to Peterborough will be for the best and as you say you will be close to work and able to pop in to see the doggies when you have a long day to do at work.

Best of luck with the sort out and the move.

I'm sure it will be a wrench for you. Peterborough is a lovely place lots of open space outside the city as well for you to take your dogs. Maybe even start another club up, I would be prepared to come along even though I live in Herts!

Eee chuck!! I know you love your old home and leaving behind your memories of Nick and the reason you both went there will be very hard.....BUT thats exactly what they are Leonie - Memories and you can take them with you wherever you go, they are what makes us the people we are. I'm sure you will be very happy in your new home and I wish you and your doggies every happiness, I realy dont know how you've done the traveling in all weathers all this time and juggling their care - can't believe how doggy sitter was, but its not the first horror story I've heard. So all the very best cocker, chin up, Cynthia

I understand your sadness Leonie, but after speaking with you a few weeks ago, I know you will just get on with it and enjoy P'borough just as much. If we go to the P'borough motorhome show in April, I'll let you know and we can have a natter and another catch up. Take care.
Luv Joanne xx

Hi Leonie

Was watching C&C today and saw your 'new hairstyle' - I knew straightaway that it was a wig and though you must have been having fun trying them on then in the 2nd hour you confirmed it.

You are such a lucky person having a super job presenting on C&C and also getting to use all the super stuff you sell, including the wigs from Ideal World. Must admit the wig suited you. Wear the curly one another time for us to see please.
