WOW, what an absolutely incredible two days. I am so grateful to Sabina for sharing some brilliant ideas and concepts and for lecturing for the two full days. It was lovely to meet some old friends, make some new ones with many laughs along the way.

Two days in Birmingham and I come home with a baby in a pram - I have some explaining to do to the wife!

Oh, and my volume 2 Beating book was drenched by a bottle of water in my car - that was an expensive mistake.

Thanks to Lynne for the plate spinning lessons, to Graham for supplying the projector and long lasting microphone batteries, to Dan for the loan of his smurf body, to Kevin for my competition 'hot dog' entry, to my new Pug friend and to Rob for sweeping the floor despite having a dodgy hand.

I even met some celebrity friends... Mr Tumble, Steve Davis and Aunt Sally in a local cafe whilst having breakfast.

It's good to be back.

I had an amazing couple of days in Birmingham and even though it did end up costing me a small fortune in hotel bills it was worth every penny.  Learnt so much and had a good laugh too, such a great crowd. Can't wait for the next one :) :) :)

We got home around 11.30 last night, a 15 minute hold up on the M40 due to an accident and then there was
a "Q" on the M25 from 11 to 10 so we went off via Woking so got held up for 30 mins altogether so not too bad.

Many thanks to all who attended, I think we had approx. 30 there.
For the biscuits and cakes people bring, helping us in and out with the stock and keeping the hall tidy.
Thanks to all, much appreciated.

Another fab two days, I always say that but to me they are fabulous and I thought Sabina went
beyond expectations over the two days, THANKS Sabina xx

Spent the day catching up with orders and emails and now onto the next event, planning for Manchester,
Northampton, Lincoln and then Back to Birmingham. The next event will be September sometime.

Off to sort the pictures out

It was a very sea type first session with the fish, dolphin and lobster.

My attempt at the dolphin.

Sabina explained the tail in two different positions for when making a group of dolphin's.
Roger made the dolphin hat, when I took a picture it was always moving.
Everyone making the butterfly.

I think this was my attempt at the butterfly Sabina showed,
the way the wings were attached was very interesting and un-usual.
My 3D printer made the rubbish attachment for the McPump  :)  ;)
