Sasha Festival 2014 - Meet & Greet Ice Cream Social

Well the Sasha Festival is over for another year and what a fantastic time we all had.  The hotel was lovely and the rooms very comfortable indeed.  I shared with my lovely friend Norvell again and it was great to catch up with her.  

This is the bedroom.

We also had another lovely room for sitting and relaxing in and of course for making that necessary cup of tea!

Nice bathroom as well.   What more could one ask for. 

I headed down with Henry to register and of course to 'Meet and Greet'.

Henry was pleased to meet his heart throb.... although I am not sure she was too bothered!

He tries to chat to her.... the other girls are welcoming everyone.

Some of the lovely ladies welcoming us, Judy & Holly on the right.

The irrepressible Marti and Jackie.

Lovely Brenda with her gorgeous Mum Virginia.

Annette's beautiful studio doll...of which I will write about in more detail...

Stevie & Finn

In the meantime....while we were all busy downstairs....what was happening upstairs in the room?

What is this?  A hand, coming out of the suitcase?

Surely not?!

Is the coast clear?  

Looks like someone successfully smuggled herself to the festival after all!

What?  Please don't tell on me Finn!

Peggy Sue looks slightly alarmed at being discovered by Finn. (Ginger's lovely NP boy)

If anyone recognises faces that I haven't yet put names to, please let me know and I can add them.

    1. Yes just got home this morning Jenni. Peggy Sue had a bit of surprise with all the babies, but I do think she enjoyed herself as well and she got a lot of attention from Suzanna Lewis, Anne Votaw and Ann Chandler :-) as well as many others who made her welcome.

    2. I was sure Peggy Sue would be welcome and glad she managed to smuggle herself into the suitcase to attend. The social looks like it was fun.
