Yay! It finally arrived at 11:19 last night!
The email letting me know for definite the big changes that would affect my shift pattern and when they will take affect from.
That can only mean one thing…
A date for the next Spoolette’s meet up can now be set! I didn’t want to do it before knowing as I’d be gutted if I arranged it and then couldn’t even go myself!
Saturday 25th February 2017
We’ll be meeting at the same cafe as last year but in the afternoon instead of going to Weatherspoons I’m thinking we might go to the pub at the train station instead. I’m going got make a trip to Dewsbury in the next week or so to let Fabworks and Lucky Fashions know to expect a stampede of fabric starved ladies, and to check out meeting places.
If you’ve not been before it’s a time to spend a fews hours laughing, admiring and stroking (clothes of fellow Spoolettes) and generally having a fab day with people who you’ll feel you’ve known for years by the end of the day!
I’ve had a couple of new ideas….
Make a name badge!!
It can be paper, fabric, plastic, anything! From my own experience you will have that moment when you know someone’s face from IG or their blog but you can’t remember their name! If you wear a badge we’ll all know who you are!
Bring A Goodie Bag!
Now with all the best intentions I would love to spend time sourcing all sorts of loveliness to make each of you a goodie bag, but I really don’t have time. So what about we all make just one, put your own name on it so whoever gets its knows who has put it together. You don’t have to spend money, hand made gifts are just the best, or add a notion or 2 from your stash. If you don’t wish to take part in this, that’s fine, but you won’t be able to receive a goodie bag if you don’t bring one (hope that doesn’t sound too harsh!!). What do you think…. a good idea or not….I’ll go with the general census of opinion, other suggestions are welcome too!
I’ll be writing another post in a couple of weeks where you’ll be able to add your name if you’re coming and I’ll give you all the details of the day!
Now hasn’t that just made your Friday! Now Christmas it’s over unless you’ve got a holiday booked soon there’s not a lot to look forward to, well there is now!!
See you on the 25th Feb!!
