Stampin'Up Field Training at Peterborough

Well, yesterday was the SU - Field Training for Demonstrators in Peterborough, 23 ladies attended! I was very nervous as I was suppose to drive there on my own, my DH promised that he would take me and on the morning of the 23rd said, I am leaving for the US, and it will be a waste of time for him to sit there for 2 or 3 hours unnecessarily! Well, I almost did not go, as I also had my Physio appointment, since my Physio lady is my latest customer, she said go, you will be fine!
I had not been in so much pain the whole day, I left the house at 5.15pm to be there for 7pm, for a journey that my SatNav said would take 41mins! I wasn't taking the bullock cart nor was I walking there! the journey was much easier than I anticipated and I got there for 6.00pm! When I got in to the hotel reception, there was a lady sitting in the lounge, so I asked her if she was Stampin'Up, and we got talking and I was really happy to have met her, her name is Jo Austin, and she is from Doncaster! waves. She was so sweet, that she even got me a drink (non alcoholic of course, as I was driving back). Since we were there an hour early we thought we would have dinner!! which turned out to be a disaster, as the fire alarm went off and we had to leave our dinner half way through and rush out, the whole meeting was delayed by half hour!
It was a fun evening, Paula talked about how to promote out business, and we made two projects and also got a stamp set free "A Beautiful Thing" here are the M & T's.

I enjoyed this meeting more compared to the one I went to in September 2008 held at HW! but to the end of the meeting, I started with terrible pain, so driving back home was a chore, and my DH was very worried that he kept calling, as it took me more than and hour to get back, I hate driving at night! Well I got home at 11.20pm, having left Peterborough at 10pm! so ya know how slow I drove....

Sounds like you had fun and gorgeous projects too.
So lovely to hear of you meeting Jo and getting on so well.
I just popped over to her blog and see that she does classes in Doncaster...only 30 mins away from here. May have to get myself booked onto one of them...
