When you just have to laugh

Yesterday was a day of mixed emotions - I was so excited as I drove to the garage and pick up my new car , after having said my very fond farewells to Lola, a beautiful black luna Beetle which my DH bought me as a wedding anniversary present. The new car - yet to be christened - is a sexy salsa red Beetle. Go for a test drive, you'll be hooked.
Anyway, I was demonstrating at York and had packed the car with 'stuff' and arrived with loads of time to set up etc etc. I had just opened my bag, put my hand in when a large tube of glitter glue exploded in my hand. The glue shot up in the air, splattered the demo table and when I looked I realised that I was wearing most of a whole pot of glitter glue. The two blokes waiting outside for their wives to come out of the craft shop were too polite not to laugh. After I had spread it everywhere, whilst trying to clean up, one of the blokes came over and said, " Do you do that to attract all your customers? My wife has to spend all night with glitter to look like that!"
I'm just so pleased I didn't have to take the new car back to the garage to be cleaned or report any mishaps to DH!!!

Take Care

Oh Annette I am still wiping the tears from eyes reading this... Its sounds just like the sort of thing that would happen to me!!!!!
When I was in Essex doing a demo on the 6th september the black dress I had on blew right up over my head exposing my rear end... Luckily I had my big granny pants on...I must write that as an article!!!
