My hubby is a star!

My lovely hubby took me to Thetford today to the Sincerely Yours papercraft show where we met up with my good friend and fellow crafter Lynsey. He patiently waited while we oohed and aahed and made lots of purchases and took the first bags back to the car for us. He made good use of the free tea and coffee provided by buying the entrance ticket - he managed 5 cups! There were so many lovely goodies on sale and this is what I bought. I've displayed it with my lovely new table and chairs which arrived last Friday. I also bought a very cute stamp to add to my candy I will be offering here very soon. We were there 5 hours and he never complained once.

The laptop socket is really playing up so he fiddled around with it and ended up sellotaping it to keep it working for me. We're going to look at some netbooks tomorrow and will have to get the laptop fixed. If I don't appear on my blog for a day or two, you'll know why.
Graham, you are a star.

You can tell your husband that Paola from Africa says he deserves the global patient husband award, five hours? my husband would have left me there, he he. Love all the goodies you bought while you were there, i am coming to the UK in October, just to shop, we are so deprived out here. Enjoy all those goodies
