Couple of Days in Southampton

A couple of weeks ago some friends and I headed down to Southampton for a couple of days. 

On the Monday when we arrived at Southampton, Pam & I went round Ikea. Pam was an 'Ikea Virgin!'. She has ordered from them but never been to the store. 

Originally we were going to Nancy & Stephanie's Crafty Workshop (Nancy Watt & Stephanie Weightman), but this was cancelled. As we had already booked the hotel (which we ended up getting free - long story!!) we decided that we would go anyway and on the Tuesday we did a bead class at the Southampton Bead Shop. Here is a picture of the necklace that we made. It's my favourite colour. I enjoyed making the piece even though it looked quite difficult. 

We had a good day with plenty of laughs as normal. Not quite sure what the tutor or the shop staff made of us but hey ho, we had fun.

We ended the day with a meal at TGI Fridays. I would like to say that it was a good meal but it was not, we had to wait ages to be seated, even longer to be served, We had been there over an hour before our food came out and some of the food was cold. We ended up complaining and getting £25 off the bill.

Pam and I git stuck in traffic on the was back and took us just as long to get back to Brighton as it did Trace to get back to Cardiff!!!

Thanks for reading
