Once we had finished looking around the exhibition we went to our hotel and had a good cup of Ulster tea and tray bakes (NI hospitality is legendary and always consists of home baking. I nearly died of cake overdose when I got engaged to my husband as we had to visit all his relatives before we got married!). Friday evening and all day Saturday was spent at Focusfest, but on Saturday afternoon I snuck away to meet up with Judith and Sarah. I am sure that some of you may have read their posts about our time together.

We had the most fabulous time talking non-stop for three hours, over one cup of coffee . It was such good fun. It is so nice just to 'click' and chat away, as if we have known each other for years. We had a bit of fun trying to get a photo of us together, as the first gentleman we asked, just turned off our cameras. We decided that we needed to ask a younger person with techie skills, so Judith made a bee line for a chap in the menswear department. He didn't dare say no!!!!! We must have terrified him!
Whilst we were together Sarah gave me a wee pressie of a travel tea bag holder (I don't think that is the correct terminology but I can't think of the proper name). Isn't it beautiful? Sarah is a very talented lady.
Sunday, was spent with my friend and her family. In the afternoon, we sat outside and enjoyed the warm sunshine. I flew back late yesterday afternoon but was able to see my Mother in Law in the morning. My MIL is elderly and frail. It was a real joy to see her looking well (she has been in poor health for a while now) and being able to chat with her. My big adventure is now over and I have turned back into Mum/Wife, however, it was nice to be out and about and have no responsibilities for a while!
