The Master returns!

What a great day of racing yesterday and 'the master' Valentino won - just brilliant!

Never seen such amazing racing in the 125 class with Bradley Smith winning for Britian. The 250's was so exciting fighting for the front places and swapping so much.

Then the Moto GP was great and Vale had to work hard to catch up Pedrosa but he did it like no one else can. Oh and what a shame that Jorez fell off - especially for my little Spanish friend Paula - who always takes such delight in phoning me when a Spanish rider wins! She did phone today though to say well done to Vale.
Poor JT though he is still not riding like we know he can - 14th and he will not be happy about that. I hope he gets sorted soon as he only has this year to prove himself and then he could be out.

Had a great day at The Glitter Pot on Saturday showing the new Sorbet Souffle and embellishments and the Kraft Collection of papers. Everyone thought they were goregous. I was in the workshop room demoing with Francoise Read and Jane Gill so we had a lovely time catching up too. Also got to meet Claire Curd who is really lovely and off to Australia very soon, good luck with that Claire. Caz was there doing her magic with coloured pencils on the Penny Black stamps, Kay Carly was also colouring Penny Black flower designs and they were stunning. Paula was working her magic on the Cuttlebug - I own one and didnt know what gorgeous things it can do - she is very clever at getting the most out of products.

All in all it was a lovely day, busy in the shop and lovely to see so many people interested in crafts.

Went to a wedding reception in the evening of someone I used to work with and have known for 25 years, Suzanne. Its lovely to see her happy again with her new husband David and it was incredible to see how much Jack, her son and Owen had grown - they last saw each other when they were about 6 when Suzanne and Jack moved down to Selsey.

Enjoy the bank holiday - off to watch British Superbikes now! Will post some cards soon.
