Well what an amazing weekend, full of fun, friends and of course Sasha and Gregor! What more could one ask for?!
The Second Sasha Celebration Weekend was again well organised (thanks to all the work put in by Janet, Theresa and Tricia) and I think I am probably speaking for everyone when I say we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
So Friday we arrived...
So Friday we arrived...
The boys were very excited.
Edward and Henry were waiting excitedly by the door whilst I wheeled in my luggage!
We took it up to our room, which was nice and spacious.
The shower was so powerful it actually hurt and felt like red hot needles, but was great for easing aches and pains!
We all congregated in the lounge area
Ginger, Steve, Janet & Kendal
Iris is doing some knitting.
My lot are already watching out for friends.

Lastly for Friday night a view of the raffle prizes - there were a lot, thanks to the amazing generosity of the Sasha World and the tickets sold out Friday night so more had to be bought as not everyone got a chance to purchase some!
The blonde girl, done in the style of an original Sasha was styled and painted by Janet and was the last prize.
The first prize was this lad, donated by Gayle, dressed and hand painted by Rosie
What an amazing selection of raffle prizes indeed!
Next....Part Two: Saturday
