Hot!

Hello friends

A little blog post from a very hot Arizona! As most of you know by now (because I think I mentioned it a lot!) I'm at the Spellbinders Retreat. I am having a brilliant time and doing so much. My head is full of ideas and plans to share with you all very soon.

I took a photo of my desk - this is how it looked on arrival, my file, wine glass, chocolates and bright happy flowers.



On one of the days here we took a trip to the Spellbinders offices and Stacey especially posed for me pointing out the special award from the UK.



I have so many more pictures to share with you once I am home but if you follow me on Facebook you will have already seen some fun shots.

I am also so pleased that each day I've been able to FaceTime with home - chatting to Elliott and Mitchell, my parents and Bella! So all is good!

Thank you friends for continuing to stop by my blog while I've been away. I have been applauded here for having such dedicated blog followers and I told them - I have the best!

Take care and I will be back soon!
