calling in from London

Made it here safe and sound (after our lovely lie down beds on Qantas with our upgrade) It was great to catch up with so many people at Ally Pally - the exhibitions, I think, were the best I have seen. Not as many people roaming around though but I have got some new books coming - two from Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn for starters so Ian will be busy as soon as we get back.

Great news I discoevered yesterday is that Wellington beat Auckland for a place in the AIr New Zealand rugby finals on Saturday - would love to see it but will have to check the net on Sunday instead.

Off to do some looking today - went business shopping yesterday - going to the Tate to see the big slide - last night we went to Dirty Dancing and it took Ian a while to get used to all the girls in the audience screaming every time the lead man appeared.....

And - off to Wales tomorrow - to Swansea on the train. I have writing, reading, knitting and stitching to do.

Hope you had a go on the slides, Dale!! Glad Ally Pally went well. Give us a wave when you go through Newport station (or come and have a cup of coffee!... or on the way back..)

Hi Dale,

Glad to hear that all is going well, enjoy the remainder of your holiday and come back soon I really am getting withdrawal symptons with not having sent in a mail order for so long.

Cheers Helen

Enjoy your time away, Cheers, Alison.
