What a day Saturday was. I think there were 19 of us ready for a lot of chatter and laughs.
I know some of the names but I won't be writing them because I don't want to leave anyone out.
It was great to met some new faces from Blogland as well as the others I had already met and been on retreat with. It is always a good idea to be careful what you say. You never know who knows you or someone you know. I meet Christine who was going to my home town for a family party  that night. Yes we know the same people.. Haha. Meeting Chez was great.
I was able to personally say THANKYOU for my PIF gifts as well as for everything else she does.
Of course it was a great day with lots of gift swapping, fun, laughter and Naughty SANTA. I think everyone was happy with their handmade gifts. Far too many photos to put them all up but I'm sure if you surf Blogland you will see a lot of them..
ANYWAY, here are some I have chosen... NOT TOO MANY.

Everyone settling in and just look at all those gifts..WOW

And the laughter begins, the gifts are being opened and the head gear was funny.
We have a SANTA head & reindeer antlers.
Presents were shaken and items were hung on body parts.

Lots of aprons were made. This one was reversible. How clever. 
A cute Suffolk puff tree...

The PAPPARAZI were following the present openers...
It was like The Benny Hill show or something from comedy capers. 

What can we say about our lunch at the Cafe. Scrumptious.
I think we were a little noisy with our laughing but only until the food came out and we were busy eating.

We finished our day with goodbyes. Gathered our gifts and had safe trips home.
Until next year ladies..
Thankyou for a special day out...
