Back to work hitting the ground running with lots of changes afoot.
Don't take easily to change but sometimes its just so necessary.
September saw us picking up the altered wedding dress and it was just perfect. Much relief all round.
Popped down to Maldon to see Fen Edge Textiles exhibition at the Mauldene centre.Not an easy space to exhibit and they had done really well. As usual I thought my friends pieces were the best.
Saturday 11th was SIL's stag do. Amazingly hubby didn't get too drunk as he spent a fair bit of time on the dance floor. Now this tells me that he had already taken in a fair amount of alchohol as he never normally dances at all. Few sore heads the next day.
That day I went to a Ferrers Quilters workshop with Barbara Chainey on hand quilting.
I found her technique really hard as I think I am too set in my ways but it was good to give it a go and was a lovely relaxing day.
I went straight from this workshop to Southend and met up with some girls from work to see a performance of The Rocky Horror Show. Sadly as it was a matinee the theatre was not full. Fairly empty actually and this did effect the atmosphere somewhat.But what a laugh, would definately go again and yes probably dress up.
We stayed and had a quick drink afterwards and watched the audience arrive for the evening performance. Nearly everyone was dressed up!

This group had been very organised and had just about covered the entire cast

MEGA catch up

Quite a bit has happened since my last posting so I will be catching up in chunks.
First we had Natz baby shower. Natz is my daughter's bestie and Jenny and her friends made great efforts to make it a great occasion.
Baby showers are a new thing to me and although not entirely sure its a very British thing to do it seems a nice idea to get all your friends together to wish the expectant Mum well.Trying to find some pics to put up but can't atm.
Same evening we went to see The Beagles at Plazma in Wickford. Always a good night out such a great band and of course they did all our favourites 

Oh I had forgotten what happened when Jenny and Jake came to pick us up to go to see The Beagles 

How funny was that. I thought it would be good to go like this but Jenny made me go and change. Like Mother like daughter eh?
