Well, I'm safely back home, despite the snow, and just waiting anxiously to hear that Mandy and SB are home ok too.....

What a wonderful weekend it was!! I had such a brilliant time meeting you all, it's just a shame my camera died after taking only a couple of pics :roll: but I will post them soon anyway.

Donna - you're lovely! It was so great to talk to you in person and I feel like I've known you for ages already. And thanks so much for bringing the wine and chocs!

SB - you're wonderful! It was such fun chatting to you and so kind of you to bring the laptop and DVDs so we could watch Sean in between talking about him!

Mandy - you're fantastic! I loved hearing all your stories of meeting and seeing Sean. It seems like you bump into him every 5 minutes in Sheffield! (And of course you have the best accent in the world!)

:grouphug: to you all girls!!

I will recount mine & mandy's journey home tomorrow. But to whet your appetite here's a the poster for

'FAR SOUTH, FAR NORTH, SOUTH, NORTH AGAIN'

A tail starring 2 Sean Bean fans lost in arctic conditions on the A1. Also starring a policeman, 2 AA men, 3 motorway rescue men and a very amused coach driver.

Lovely weekend.

Mandy it was great to meet you and see all your lovely photos. SB, yes it does feel like I've known you ages too and Lotte it was so nice to meet you and find that we had so much to talk about, a weekend is not long enough.

Glad all got back safely even if it did take most of the day!!!

Ididn't get up till midday and looking at the weather I think if we had left it late to set of we may not have got home at all, but watching the weather and seeing all the people stuck in the snow I know it may sound awfull but I keep laughing just wondering if they had as much fun as we did. Can't get up the hill to Handsworth top to get to the shops so I thought bugger it hubby con have cheese slice sandwiches for his pack up for work it won't bloody kill him might embarrass him but I do that all the time anyway.Oh and by the way forgot to tell you all it was all Kai's fault the little tinker is gona get beat up when I see him when he found out I'd gone away for the weekend he said he hoped something would happen so I got stuck and culdnt get home he thought it would be funny not only that he kept his finges crossed :shock: Its just what my family expect from me now
