A Trip Down Memory Lane Retreat

 I am not great at remembering to take photos - probably because the time just flies by and I forget.
My room - Fab- I do have to say that it was not as great as last year - the rooms on the third floor are definitely a bit better but, I am not going to complain as the view was lovely and I even had two double beds to choose from.
We left ( Annette , Sarah and I ) on Friday afternoon , traveled for about an hour to arrive at Stoke By Nayland Hotel. We had a lovely relaxing meal in the bar before we checked in and unpacked our "stuff".

 Saturday nights tea. Yummy food , lots of wine and staying up till  late creating :) 
I Love these ladies, I haven't laughed so much since the last time we were together.

 Very posh prawn cocktail, followed by sausage and mash and cheese cake.

 The view from the room- hard to believe its almost November!!

 One of the classes - Jane Hewitts Christmas mini book ( a work of art!) 

AND to top it all...the shop :) :) - heaven.
VERY sad to leave at tea time on Sunday and really upset with the service at home- I had to get my own breakfast and then go to work this morning !!!!

Love Soojay xxx

Looks like great fun, makes me want to get out my scrapbooking stuff and spend a weekend getting lost in papers and buttons and bows.
