Food, glorious food!

It has become a tradition that everytime we meet for a Scrapbus Directors meeting it involves food. We have had some lovely meals in the 'Dragonfly' in Newport, Amber's cheesy creamy pasta sauce was fantastic and Fiona can make a mean burger and wedges (it was here we discovered the delights of Gu pots too). But I guess the pièce de résistance was when Dai (Julia's husband) created a masterpiece of food (lots of mexican influences) and he truly loved doing it!My coq au vin would never beat that but at least the clean plates meant it couldn't have been too bad (or everyone was too polite to leave anything!)
(artists impression!)
The purpose of the meeting was to sort out all the papers for the crops and special events coming up. The table was covered in delights and I did nearly lick the 'My Minds Eye' which is really lush! We even managed to scrapbook...Fiona taught us her LO 'model behaviour' and as usual we were in fits of laughter. I will be posting images of the papers for next weeks crop shortly...if you haven't booked and want to come there is still space, please email to book.
Love Sue x
