My Trip To Sweden

Hi There
Thought I would just pop in and share a few of my pics in Sweden. I cant believe its nearly a week ago now.
 
I had such an amazing time. Thankyou Magnolia for inviting me a second time and thankyou Lillemor and Camilla for looking after me and especially Lillemor who gave up her Sunday to show me a little of Sweden and her beautiful family and home. Also to Tony for making a wonderful lunch. :D. and to meet your two wonderful children.
 
Photo: Camilla  and me yesterday
 
Here is a picture of Camilla hard at work
 
Here are the ladies are hard at work on our workshops. It was so lovely to see faces from last year and what an amazing job they did.
A few had travelled long distances and it was lovely to meet Nicola from England whose blog Ive been following for quite a while now. Her husband Neil had arranged a surprise for her 40th Birthday and she didn't know a thing about it until the week before :D
 
These are the finished cards (Lisa and Susanne still to finish painting...they are as bad as me!!;D)
One is missing as there was 9 in my class??
Arent they great and to say we had only 2 hours!
 
At 9am the doors opened. Some had been queuing outside since 6am. It was great to see my fellow teamie and friend again Louise. She is on the bottom right hand corner in a grey wooley hat!
 
*********
Then on the Sunday Evening I headed home. Well I very nearly came back down to earth with a bump!!! Literally!!!
While I had been up in the sky for about an hour the plane made a sharpish turn to the left and dropped down suddenly! OMG!!!
The pilot then came on to say we were making an emergency land in Denmark due to technical problems!! Oh Shit!!!
Thankfully the oxygen masks didn't drop down as this would of sent me into complete panic, but surprising I was calm. Apparently the computer had stopped working, but as soon as I heard the wheels drop down I knew it would be ok. The Air Hostess was smiling so I was ok too:D
 
Once landed we soon swapped planes and were off again. I was an hour late overall.
Hubby was waiting at the other end but he was more excited at the fact Manchester United's Manager had just walked out of Arrivals!!! LOL
 Welcome home Deb!! hee hee
 
All in all I had an amazing weekend and Thankyou to everyone who took part in it
Hugs for now

Great piccies Debbie, it was such an amazing weekend (can't believe it's a week ago already!) Thanks for the little mention lol, it was lovely to meet so many fab peeps and to spend time with you and Camilla was awesome!
