Wow! What a weekend!
Last weekend (8th-10th Nov) saw myself and my fellow Romaniacs – Laura, Celia, Vanessa, Debbie, Jan and Catherine – all descend on Bedford town centre to attend the Festival of Romance, 2013. This event is particularly special to us Romaniacs as this is where, two years ago, we first formed as a writing group. We have some very fond memories, of which we continue to add to each year.
The other guests in the B&B that we were staying at, would’ve undoubtedly known the second we all met up because of the high pitched squeals we omitted. It was the first time we had all seen eachother in months – we are quite a vocal group of ladies once you put us together!
So we put our glad-rags on and took ourselves off to the awards. It was a fantastic evening full of laughs, congratulating hugs and generally having a good ole catch up with much loved friends. It was so lovely to meet up with my old friends and extremely exciting to have met some ‘new’ friends, with whom I had only ever spoken to online.
A massive well done to all those short-listed on the award, it is such an achievement in itself. You are all very talented, so well done.
Congratulations to each and every one of the winners on the night and also to everyone who was short-listed for an award. And a massive thank you to Kate Allan for, yet again, putting in so much time and effort and organising such a fantastic event.
I am already thinking about what to wear for next year’s Festival of Romance!
