So Oct Nov Dec Jan Feb March and some of April

Big event in October was daughters wedding. Had a great time from the party bus til the end. She looked amazing he looked amazing the bridesmaids looked amazing. Was a great day.And what about that cake. Spectacular and so them I loved it.
Sadly Phil's Mum was taken ill  during the day and have to thank Laura and Donna for all their help

 Sad news was that just a few weeks later our old neighbour Gary (pictured above with his partner Sue) passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly.

Jen and Jake flew off on their Egyptian honeymoon and 2 days later Peter and Jess flew back from their (delayed) honeymoon in the Maldives.
So to November, went  to see Armstrong and Miller at Southend. Had my birthday.  Our gift from Jen and Jake  at their wedding was tickets to see UB40 at Southend and was a pure coincidence that this happened on my birthday. Fantastic night!!!!!!
Should have had my long awaited op but it didn't happen. 12hours wait to be told 'no bed'
Did Richard box workshop.
End of month and Snow!!!
Operation happened on Dec 1st heavy snow outside but all went well. Went back to school for just a couple of days before Christmas break.
Went to see The Blockheads at Colchester. Another stonkingly good night.
January we popped down to Brighton for a spot of shopping and the Brighton Tattoo convention
Went to see Fairport Convention at Colchester. They were a bit subdued I thought but still good and they did the entire Babbacome Lee album which I had not heard them do before.
Went to Textiles in Focus  at Cottenham and for the first time did a workshop. Margaret taught one as well.
Went to see an amazing dance show at Rochford. The ATS belly dancing that I am learning was formulated by American Carolena Nericcio. She came over here to do some training and an evening of dance was arranged so us mere mortals could watch the creator at work. I have to say although she was totally breathtaking I most enjoyed the sister studios dancing together. For me this was Tribal as it should be.
March also had the Essex Tattoo Expo at the Brentwood centre and I worked on the Tattoos Only mag stall with my daughter. This is always a great day and I bumped into a few old friends and made a few new ones.
Towards the end of the month Tribal Unity organised a charity hafla for the people of Egypt. Always a bit nerve wracking dancing in front of those that can really do it but a great night nevertheless. And I won a record amount of raffle prizes which was a first for me.
Phil went off to Jerez to watch MotoGP and it rained!
Meanwhile in the sunshine of Camden market I had the best mothers day ever with my two children and their respective partners.
Camden probably not the place it used to be but good fun anyway and I managed to spend a bit.
On to April.
Phoenix hafla and the last of Wendy teaching us. :{
When we go back it will be a dance club. I hope people support it.
Did only my second ever workshop at Hylands House 'Inspired by Kantha' and have completed my elephant piece.
Met some colleagues old and new for coffee and a catch up and now looking forward to a day out with hubby . Tollesbury I think. Then some of my dancing buds coming over to have a Tribal bra making day which should be fun

Phew ! That's all caught up then
