I'm back....

and we had the most fabulous weekend. Mamma Mia was outstanding, loved every minute of it. Cor there were some hilarious one liner jokes, fab singing, great story and even my hubby said "well Vic to be honest I wasn't really looking forward to seeing it, but it was bl***y brilliant". Our hotel was really lovely, situated on St Katherines Dock overlooking Tower Bridge with easy access to all facilities. We crammed in so much sight seeing, I really loved Covent Garden, the people and atmosphere was amazing. We had a gorgeous meal in a lovely French cafe. Then went onto Portabello Road market, where I spotted Callum Best outside a bar......phwoar, he is very dishy...lol!!! As for the market itself, it was hectic, some very colourful characters around....hehe!! I then spotted a stall selling Olives, which I love, but there were sooooo many to choose from, so I got a few of every variety...yum yum!!!

Loved Regent Street, Oxford Street and Carnaby Street, just had to go to Molton Brown, Kipling and L'Occitane. And of course I can't miss out on Harrods, WOW!!! what an experience, the food, the clothes, the chocolates and the bags, so we all had a few treats.

Leaving Stephen at Paddington Station Sunday evening was tearjerking, to say the least. It was great to be able to spend such quality time together and to be able to have a proper conversation with each other. I think the whole weekend has changed me for the better. I feel recharged, rejuvenated and the old, happy Vicki is back...yay!!!!

I'm having a few computer problems at the mo, which is why I haven't posted any pics. My computer has locked up and I have no idea how to unlock it. So will have to wait til hubby comes home on Friday to rectify it. I'm using my son Toms at the mo, but it hasn't got the same facilities as mine. Cor however did we manage before computers hey!!!!

Thank you for all the lovely anniversary greetings in the post below. Also special thanks to my lovely buddies Kerry and Julie for the gorgeous cards they sent us.

I have visited a few blogs, gosh you have all been busy little crafters. It looks like I've a lot of catching up to do. Hopefully I will be able to leave some comments and view some more blogs throughout today.

Hope everyone is happy and well. TTFN xx vicki xx
