I had an early start on Saturday - 4:50 to be precise! A combination of light mornings, traffic noise and anticipation. So I knitted and I read, and eventually went down for a FABULOUS breakfast. They also packed me a wonderful lunch - honestly, it was very good indeed.
So I drove to Woolfest, parked, got in the queue and heard a yoohoo and who should it be but Badger and Alicat, and also a little further down the queue Wye Sue, Badger and Alicat very kindly offered to share their day with me, and great company they were too - thank you both, I had the best day. Badger was so busy with her photos, I almost forgot to take mine, but I met Artyfartykat, Acrylik, Woolly Wormhead, and loads of lovely people. My photos aren't the best, Badger has fab photos on her blog, but here are a few.

It was a fab day - and thanks again to everyone for making it so special. I had a lovely evening of Dr Who, followed by anther Italian, but a different restaurant this time - I am of an age where I can't walk into pub on my own, not even to eat, a restaurant seems more proper somehow.
Another early wake up this morning - a disturbance over the road, but not to worry. Breakfast was HUGE and wonderful and off I set. I REALLY wanted to get home and see my family.
And now to home, because while I was spending today trying to get home my two DS's were running for Acorns children's Hospice in the Great Malvern Triple Run DS1 ( on the right ) in the half marathon and DS2 in the Spring Run. Conditions underfoot were dreadful by all accounts, some of the course was still under flood water and in the end the half marathon course was shortened slightly but they did it and I am very proud of them.
DS1 and DS2 - 9 years between them, but aren't they fab!
