well, we all have our secret guilty pleasures, and they don't always involve Osmond records.....

ok, imagination in overdrive. secret guilty pleasures involving Osmond records? can that be explained or is it best left to the imagination? i do have a very good one-- imagination that is! :wink: s
and i think a green wing based party sounds good news unless you think it may be overdone a little! embarrass rather than enjoy. s

I'm manning Box Office alone , which is not allowed. Our manager is on holiday her boss and deputy have gone to the Hay festival and it's meant to be and the useless one. I hate working with him I spend most of my time sorting his mistakes and he's so slow.

Anyway he was meant to be here at 10 but at 10.20 he called me to tell me he was in Worcs. which means he won't be here till at least 11.45.

Thank god I leave at 1 I have called the deputy manager and left a message so they know I'm on my own :evil:

OK it gets better he's got on the wrong train and is now in Droitwich which means he MAY be here by 12.45


Can I say this just proves my point about MEN. I'm sure we only have them to look after.

Apparently my X is emmigrating to Canada ( not sure what the Canadian's did to deserve this) he saw my sister in town yesterday and spoke to my nephew. Not happy about that, thankfully Jake didn't know who he was as he "hates uncle Jason and will hit him for what he did to his favourite Aunty".

Anyway this was only done for effect , he told someone else it was Poland he was going to. Apparently he has to get £2000 to go , seeing as he still owes me that can't see that happening , he spends all his wages in 1 day. Also pretty sure they have some rules about someone with assult charges and other criminal convictions and who not completly mentally well.

it's a bit like when while out one night he told one of his closest friends we were moving to the US at the end of the week or his workmates that he'd been offered a job abroad but it was military based and he couldn't discuss it.

Hi Emm...how will you ever get there if you don't know where you are going????
The easiest way to describe where you are going is near Montreux which is on Lake Geneva.

if you want to email me a photo of the hat I will put it up on here for you.

Thanks for that. Baggie sorted our tickets and I'm travelling with her and Mac V , hopefully they know more than me. My head is full of hat and dress orders.

Will try and e-mail photo over the weekend

Yup tickets are indeed sorted. Although your pre-occupation with hat orders probably explains why i have been unable to get hold of you all weekend. If you get chance drop us a message

I'm seriously begining to panic about my ability to get everything done before switzerland. I'm at the 3 counties show from fri-sun this week. Before that I have 4 jackets 1 dress and 5 hats to make, thats without any new hats for the show.

The last few years women have ordered there for Ascot hats, ladies day is thurs 19th yes the day before we fly. On top of that pretty sure I have some orders for weddings on 21 june. My kitten has to go to the vets on mon and because my parents are away I have Jake all of the mon and tues. Then theatre on wed and thursday morning. At some point I need to pack tidy the house and get a train ticket .

well the jackets were all picked up last night and 3 hats went too. At theatre til 2pm then a fascinator being picked up. Got to try and make a few new hats for the 3 counties show this afternoon.

Then get up at 2am to drive parents to airport get home around 5am pack car and get sister at 6am. Drive to Malvern to set up at 7 then there til 6pm then take hats down and get home around 7pm. Then sew

Then repeat this for sat and sun. Make any orders I get have jake for 2 days then theatre on weds and pack and tidy house ( maybe even make it to the hairdressers ) on thurs . Then get on a train to go to Baggies.

I feel I may sleep through the whole of Switzerland
