Friday 27 August 2010


Well it's all over now....all that remains is to get the house back to some sort of normal state! The final family members left at lunchtime today, all the sheets have been washed, ironed & beds remade......with a bit of luck I'll be able to make a start on the huge backlog of commission work tomorrow. I can't see me getting out of my mini sweatshop for a full week!
It was a great day, despite having been the victims of a seriously convincing con woman who purported to be a caterer...even down to employing a Masterchef finalist as her "chef".....any English people reading this who happen to live in the North East of England...if you ever need caterers for goodness sake DO NOT even glance the way of Northumbrian Caterers...they'd be lucky to manage to cater for a soup kitchen!
The alcohol flowed freely though & the party didn't wind up until 6.35am when the DJ finally packed his gear & left......A great party!
This is a photo taken of my beautiful daughter Kim, by my nephew James in one of our fields......not many brides would muck about in a field of thistles on their wedding day!

Una foto preciosa y poco convencional. Tu hija es guapisima, y de corazón espero sea muy feliz. Las bodas siempre tienen anecdotas que contar y sorpresas de última hora, pero lo que importa es que haya salido bien. Un beso.

You really don't have anything nice to say about anybody, do you?

I've been following your little spat with Emmaflam and Miniman over on their facebook page and quite honestly can't believe what a complete bitch you're being!

I have some of your work (which wasn't particularly great, but seems to be getting worse) but I will gladly crush it after seeing the way you conduct yourself in public.

You are a shame to the miniature community and if you are an example of the "friendliness" and "sharing" that is to be found on the miniature forums, then I'll keep well away.

In no way have I conducted myself in a way either you or Paris Miniatures can take exception to. This is a very petty comment to place on my blog...but then it is a free world isn't it, so do carry on. I will not remove it as it is very much to your detriment.
I am more than happy with the way I behave....are you?

linsminis said...

As a belated afterthought while enjoying the sun thoday....just who are you "Lauren"? I can only surmise, as you have no blogger profile that, for some reason known only to you, you want to hide. If not..come forward & make yourself known! As for my work...I don't believe that I have ever sold to a "Lauren", but if I'm mistaken do send this "not particularly great" work back rather than crush it...I'd much rather it was in a nice home.

Christel said...

Congratulations Linda. She is very beautiful indeed, just like her mom:) Great photo.
