Festival of Quilts 2011

It's always good to have something to look forward to and this year, quilt-wise, I have not one but two "somethings". Not only am I going on retreat at the end of September but I'm also going to the Festival of Quilts in Brum in August.

I am already very excited because not only do I love quilts, I also love having something to look forward to, it anchors my year and helps me stay motivated through the hard slog of weekly routine as a working mum of two and "career widow".

Already, I am plotting accomodation, transportation, education (lots of classes available) and also shopping! Birmingham has excellent shopping and I intend to make use of the weak pound. Which all settles the question of when to leave (Thursday! not Friday).

Now I can't help wondering how many Euro bloggers I will run into!

I giggled when I read "career widow" in your post. I remember those days and all the groaning I did. Then...he retired!!!! OMG...seriously he needed a hobby bad! So...I got a job. Fixed that problem really quick. I was so used to being home alone. We love each other and with a sudden change in budget well let's just say one of us had to find something to do outside those four walls. So...plan ahead for the opposite of "career widow"! hehehe
