The View from the Shard - a huge thank you to you all!!

So this really is our last blog post for ACMC. Michelle and I just want to say a massive THANK YOU to you all for our day out vouchers. We finally managed to arrange it for last Friday and had a fab time! We thoroughly enjoyed our trip up The Shard (as you can see below!) and we had a gorgeous meal at The Latium Restaurant.

Decided to take the non-conventional route to the top!

Just kidding - we got the lift. Not many other people around at this time.

The lift goes so fast it makes your ears pop!

Loo with a view!

Tower Bridge

Michelle said the windows needed cleaning - 
and as if by magic a window cleaner appeared...

...and obliged us by joining in with a selfie!

The view was further improved with a glass of pink bubbly!

London Eye cocktail umbrella!

Yep - definitely better through pink bubbles!

Michelle got the selfie stick out - don't look down!!

She's a bit of a novice!

Bit blurry, but getting there.

That's better.

And the obligatory selfie pout pose!

Shopping for craft project ideas - crocheted Big Ben anyone?

That's more like it...

Instructions here if you can read them!

Couldn't resist having a go!

And then on to Latium restaurant - both had the fishcake to start

Hake for main course for Claire

And duck for Michelle

We both had tiramisu with mocha froth for dessert.

And finally we were served with truffles and biscotti

All in all a fantastic day out. Thank you so much for your generosity with our gifts and thank you for your support over the last ten years. It will seem odd this year not to have a stall at Village Day, but we are enjoying the WIng craft sessions and it's good to still see some of you there. Will hopefully bump into more of you at various craft fairs at some stage.

Happy crafting to you all 
Claire and Michelle xx
