Also make sure you have a smoke alarm in each bedroom, and the hall. At the moment we have one in the two bedrooms being used as bedrooms and one in the hall, none in the living areas as it's all open plan and burnt toast sets it off. Once the garage is built we'll put one in the third bedroom as well.
If you've not changed those batteries yet, stop reading and go do it, the rest of this post is about the Bloggers Connecting weekend, it'll keep until you're done!
It started on Friday evening with the Craft Love Festival on Hills Rd. I got into the parking area, did about a 5-point turn to get out again and parked on the street, the carpark was full, and messy!
I ran into a couple of stall holders I knew from elsewhere, Hannah who runs Locket (balloon balls) and a mate of my husband who was supporting his wife at her art stall. Had a wee chat with both of them before spending a little money at two other stalls.

On Saturday morning I got my name badge from Roz, I love the fabric flower!

Saturday afternoon I went to The Make Cafe for lunch, met Mum and gave her the next lot of yarn for George's vest and bought some fabric.

Sunday we met at C1 Espresso, I think in some ways this was my favourite day, it was still structured (breakfast, sightseeing) but was easier for me to mix with people. Possibly because I was more familiar with who was there by then. I took a heap of photo's from the top of C1 as well as lots while walking around but I'll only post a few.

|I think this is my favourite photo, it's an old drain lid next to a tree root in the park|

I did enjoy myself, had some really nice conversations with different people, many of whom I'd never met before despite my natural tendency to being a wallflower. Nice to meet you all, hope everyone enjoyed the weekend too.
