We are soooo excited – I can’t begin to tell you. Sally opened a parcel from the MPA today to discover that she had been named as one of five finalists from the September judging of the Kodak Wedding and Portrait Awards for her beautiful bridal portrait of Gemma. Her gorgeous image wins a Kodak digital camera for Gemma – who will now be keeping her fingers doubly crossed because if Sally is named overall winner at the awards ceremony Gemma and Martin will win £1,000!
So – we are now double checking flight times to Newcastle and figuring out what the four of us can wear – Sally can’t possibly go to the awards dinner which will be held in October, solo – she’ll need a team behind her!! And who better to give her a personal guided tour of the city than a born and bred Geordie – that’s where I come in! So having spent the year looking at all the gorgeous dresses our lovely guests have been spotted in – we’ve got to get ourselves on an office trip to Bluewater!
We’ve started as we mean to go on and finished our first bottle of champage – accompanied by strawberries – and are now excitedly looking forward to a girlie weekend at the awards. I feel a bar bill coming on…………………………
