|When the 9.48 train arrived on Platform 2, I scanned those getting off the train...then I saw R! She knew who I was as I was the only person waiting!|
So at about 9.45 I was on the platform at Alderley station waiting for R's train from the city. Then off we went on the 5minute drive to Spotlight where we were to meet another member, E. E lives in Brisbane and particularly wanted to meet R. Why? Well R collects items from K4BN members in northern NSW; these items, usually a number of boxes are collected by another lady, D, and she brings the boxes etc to Brisbane, specifically to E's place. E then passes all those items on to Karen who is the organiser of the group who lives just north of Brisbane...quite a network eh?
When E arrived I introduced the ladies to each other and then we headed into the store.
R sets a target of buying 3 balls of yarn per store. So we checked out the yarns, all the time chatting as though we'd known each other for years!
Some how we got talking to a young member of staff after we'd asked her to check out availability of certain colours. We ended up telling her about Rosanne's quest/resolution! This young staffer mentioned all of this to 'those out the back'.
|Young Sarah was very helpful and was happy to pose for a photo :-)|

More photos followed, including some with my friend Karen K, who works at that Spotlight store.
|We've just come through the checkout here; R and E are with my friend Karen K|
Eventually we went to the checkout, chatted some more outside the store, then it was time for me to take R back to the city to meet up with her husband and head off for an appointment.
After that, there was time for me to have a quick lunch at home and then head off for Sisters of stitch where I had a lovely couple of hours chatting and today I took along some crocheting. (just some squares)
