travelled on to meet up at the Comfort Inn Hotel. Bumped into a lovely French
Collector waiting for the shuttle bus. Then boarded only to see Charlotte sitting
comfortably waiting for the bus to take off! She thought she was going back to
Milan, but, unfortunately found herself with three ladies, scrEaming, laughing and shouting, at the same time pointing at her yelling, Charlotte, Charlotte, LOok what you've got! Then Dear Charlotte went.........TO POT!
Arrived at the hotel only to find, Troy and Woody not far behind!!!! Behind us all, signing in, Oh My God, what a DIN! Then Troy and Woody retired for the night,
out of earshot, out of sight, and Margaret, when I tried to sleep, kept on yacking, who would not sleep!!!! French Collector knocked on the door, OUi, oui, we said,
she wanted more......More to eat, more to drink.God I'm so tired, can hardly blink!
Next door, with lots of dust in our eyes, hardly opened, NO Surprise!! Hardly managed to concentrate, so soon all over, much TOOOOOOO LATE.
WELL THATS MY STORY FOR ALL OUR FRIENDS!!! AM OFF TO DRINK AND GET THE BENDS......

Sounds like someone had too much fun! Can't wait to see the photos

Will have to wait until Charlotte posts to get some sense !
It sounds like the G&T's are causing Jacky to have word association games with herself . . . .
Margaret - you sound like you still have your head on, though that was prior to MORE drinks . . . !
And Woody - you must be having an absolute hoot !! Glad you gave Marmite a try - hope you didn't just eat it off the spoon! That WOULD make you puke!
Charlotte - what happened? Where did they leave you? Where did you go?
Posted 24 October 2005 - 03:21 AM
Lots of fun and drinking and talking and food and marmite (which I don't class as food...). Everybody getting to know one and other - sounds like a blast!
By the way, was there any PERFUME at this event?

It was great especially meeting up with Lenore and Jerry, Phyllis, Woody & Troy(USA), Sophie from Paris, Charlotte (Milan), Ollie, Margaret and many other members from here and various parts of the world........ apologies for not listing each and everyone of you........!
Yes Sara, there were perfumes, compacts and various talks including the slide show of wonderful perfume bottles which was used at the last IPBA Convention.
The amenities, food and organisation was excellent and even though spread over two days we still did not have sufficient time to chat and spend a great deal of time together. Breakfast, lunch and dinner was still not enough!
The booklet which Catherine sent for the round table discussion was much appreciated. It was really useful and informative. Thank You!
The slide show presentation which many of you saw at the last IPBA Convention, was amazing! Loved every minute of it. There were talks on the making of perfume bottles, also on the basics of using the internet, and the changing advertising of perfumes and their relation to fashion and marketing.
For myself, the best part was being with our wonderful, friendly perfumery friends, and the chance to make new ones. It was a non-stop eating, learning, laughing experience and one I am happy I did not miss!!!!!
A big thank you to Estee Lauder Head Office London who provided the goody bags...
A huge thank you to Terry and Penny for all their hard work in organising this wonderful event.. To all the members of the Committee ...........AND to all the members who took time out to attend.......and to all of you who supported us
with your interest and comments.......
