Convention News and More...

Sorry I've not posted for a while, I was so busy getting ready to go Stampin' Up! Convention in Disneyland Paris, it's been a whirlwind.

Well it was worth it as Convention was GREAT. The best ever. I'll posted some photo's tomorrow.

It was full of like minded ladies and the odd gent and we swapped ideas, listened to inspiring people and of course bought in Momento Mall.

There is a Gala Dinner on the Friday Night followed by an Awards Ceremony. Well I was awarded for Recruiting this year. I received a stamp set Creatively Yours and a special pin. PLUS, much to my surprise...Demonstrator of the Year. This is where the top 25 demonstrators for each country receive a pin, certificate of achievement and a rose from Shelli. I was no. 23. Not bad out of 750 UK demonstrators. So to all my downline and customers, I thank you for helping me achieve these milestones, I'm so grateful. I also have to thank all my fellow demonstrators, especially the scottish contigence, for the big cheers they gave me when I walked the stage.

Convention finished Saturday afternoon, so we took a train into the center of Paris and went up the Effile Tower. The lift freaked me out a bit but what fantastic views at the top.

Our flight back wasn't until the evening, so we had a day in the parks at DLP. What a great way to finish off a great weekend.

Next year is the 2nd and 3rd November in Germany, fancy joining me?

Then it all went downhill...
I had a sore back and a touch of Sciatica on Sunday night that the usual tablets didn't shift, so I made an appointment at the Drs. Well I never quite made it to the Drs. The pain got worse and on walking to the Drs, I collapsed and ended up at A&E and then admitted. Home now with strong painkillers and a crutch..wonderful. Lesson, don't ignore back pain.
