We've got BROADBAND!!!!! At last.

 "Didn't we have a lovely time
The day we went to....... Llandudno!"
Sorry it doesn't scan as well as Bangor does, but it was still in lovely Welsh Wales.

We went to the Crop,  I took these with me

And I brought these home,

And these
I took some pictures,  this was fun,

Ladies taking pictures of the gentlemen who attended with their wives, from the left, Shaz, Neet, Jan, Christine,  Margaret, Chris, Elizabeth and Sarah.
And I'm sorry I can't seem to get any other pics to upload.

And then Margaret and Shaz travelled all across England and we had a meet with Angela, from "Felix the crafty cat"
I'm sure the others who were there will have uploaded lots of pics, go to Julia's 
and have a snoop.
Thanks for visiting,  I will try to get back to you, but it won't be until the weekend as we have visitors arriving shortly, and I am no where near ready for them.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

WOW. This is a shot I think is perfect. Not one we would normally see at the crop. I loved the one I saw on Jan's blog, but this is even better! Happy WOYWW from #3.

Enjoying seeing everyone's pic's and handmade swaps.
Thanks for sharing WOYWW Tracey #4

Those are great pics Chris, love them! How lovely to meet up w8th Angela hard on the heels of the Crop, what fun. And welcome to the 21st century! Honestly, you’ve had to be incredibly patient in your broadband waiting....pretty sure it’ll feel more worthwhile now!

Marit said...

What a lovely and humoristic photo this is Chris, you ladies taking pics of the gentlemen: it makes me smile and wish I'd be there... hope to join one day! happy woyww and a big hug from Holland, Marit #18

Neet said...

Looking at the photo makes me realise just what m backside looks like - diet back in force.
It was a clever photo that one Chris, lovely to see you again and so much better than last year after your fall. Glad most parts have healed.
So nice that you could have more time with Shaz, she is such a lovely lady and I have fond memories of 2012 when I first met her. What memories she is taking back with her this time of all the woyww friends she has met now.
Stay well and safe, glad you have your home now ... and broadband! yay!
Hugs, Neet 8 xx

Hi Chris, we did have a fab time, didn't we? Was lovely to meet you at last. You made some beautiful ATC's, and just saw you triple stamped some! Wow, they look fab. Idea being kept in mind for the future, lol. Who am I kidding, I'll have forgotten it by lunchtime. :) Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #8 X

Lunch Lady Jan said...

So great to see you Chris though I'm sorry that we didn't get to chat that much, the day seemed to whizz by. Adrian was a star, eh, what a great job he did for Margaret. Saw the pics of your get together with Angela, how lovely!!

Hi Chris, loving the photos and what a collection of goodies you have there. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my visit to yours yesterday and hope I get to see you all again soon. Take care, happy woyww and have a great time with your visitors. Big hugs, Angela x13x

Lovely to meet up with you Chris - great photo of the men and the happy snappers!! Mr D must be wonderman - what a fab job he did for Margaret. Here's to our next crop. All the best. Jo

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

What a fun post. Loving the ATC's you made and shared. So unique. And such fun things you were given too. I love the idea that the guys attend and enjoy your fun. This CROP is on my bucket list. If my military son goes back that way I'll be there !! Have a great week.

Caro said...

I am loving seeing all the photos of the crop - the one of the ladies taking photos of the guys has to be one of my favourites though - brilliant! Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week. Caro x (#19)

Christine said...

Lovely to see you both on Saturday, and have a good chat - in person.
Enjoy your visitors

Heather Marshall said...

Hi Chris, it was lovely to meet you on Saturday. I love your photo of the girls and guys! Sorry we didn't spend much time together, 6 hours flies by! I'm with Neet - we should do this more often, or a weekend one! Have a lovely week Heather xx #11

Lindart said...

Looks like you had loads of fun - and nice that the guys were all there too! Lovely ATCs to trade, and great stash to bring home! Have a great week! Lindart #23

Hi Chris. I am REALLY late getting around this week - been so busy hosting Shaz in Oz - but she is now safely tucked up with a friend in America, so I can begin to think... They are gre4at fun pictures of the crop - well done.
Hope the time with your visitors has gone well. In answer to your question when I was with you - I'd LOVE to come over for a few days in October - I think I may well need a break by then... I am assuming you saw the caring bridge post about Richard? My heart is breaking for the family.
Take care. God bless.

Shoshi said...

It looks as if you had a good time at the crop, Chris, and what a lovely lot of things you swapped! Thank you for your visit today and I'm glad you like my crochet flower. As for my hernia, I am hoping he will decide to leave well alone because I've had more than enough trouble and certainly don't relish yet another operation!
