I Have met my first fellow WOYWWer in person here in South Africa and it isn't even a fellow countryman! No! It is Ali H all the way from Wales! She is here on business and let me know when and where she would be and we managed to coincide our free time to go shopping and have a chinwag over some coffee in the HOWLING South Easter that blows here in the summer.
First on our list of things to do was go scrap shopping and so we hit one of our largest stores, the Scrapbook Factory Shop, to see if we could get something South African that it not available overseas and we did! Then it was on to the Waterfront to go gift shopping and have some coffee. Finally 3 hours later I had to take her back to her hotel so she could meet up with her fellow countrymen to go to dinner. We managed to do quite a lot in the 3 hours but are meeting up again this evening which I am really looking forward to.
Here we are in The Scrapbook Factory Shop in Salt River above and at the V& A Waterfront below where bronze elephants roam...
This is Ali's very generous gift to me below and the photo of my desk at the top of the page is what I have been doing with it all!
Now I am off to go see what's on your workdesk this Wednesday at Julia's place over at Stamping Ground where she hosts this world wide desk hop and snoop!
