I'm back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To Steve, Sarah, Tony, Katherine and Andy:


Thanks for our smashing weekend as your guests - I certainly had a fab time and would recommend it to anyone.

Katherine - all your efforts were truly appreciated and I hope we weren't too much trouble for you - although it was more like a chimps tea party at times lol

Andy, brilliant!! You truly are a gem, mate :D

Tony - what can I say but keep doing what you do and don't ever change! (but you still can't have that amethyst!). Thanks for all the hard work you put into your presentations.
You are all absolute http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j187/Catpurr/Gems%20stuff/035ctSI2D-sellerst1048.jpg

It was informal and relaxed and we had a good giggle:


We did try to behave:

but failed miserably! :D:p

Steve, it was a pleasure to meet you and Sarah. Thank you for making the time to pop in and see us. Good luck with all your plans for CR - I hope your current venture goes on to bigger and better things

To Graham and Daniel:

It was great to finally meet you and have a chinwag Sorry your journey was such a nightmare! Hope the shock of meeting us wasn't too bad lol :eek:

I certainly had a blast and am chuffed at the opportunity to spend the weekend in such good company in nice surroundings. I could kiss you all!!

13-07-2008, 07:13 PM
Really glad you had a good time, you deserve it

(now you've done all the polite thank yous, what's the gossip???!);)

Welcome back Samantha ... glad you had fun ... did you get frisked on the way out? :blol:

13-07-2008, 10:52 PM
hi there! thanks for your good wishes.

it truly was a fab time. as for the goss? well we were sworn to secrecy and can't really reveal anything.

well other than Tony's pink feather boa clashed with his orange thong (not a pretty sight) and Steve really shouldn't have worn that jaunty nautical number with those legs!! As for Katherine, well.......the stiletto boots were frankly an ill-judged choice since I must say she's more choirgirl than chorusgirl... and as for Andy's shock of pink hair, words fail me!

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww Sammi, i'm so glad you all had a great time xxx

14-07-2008, 06:40 AM
I have to be quick as I'm already late for work

But I'd just like to echo everything Sammi has said - it was a truly excellent weekend.

Although, I don't think I'll ever be the same again......I used to be all innocent and pure........

I'll post more once the trauma has gone.....;)

14-07-2008, 07:54 AM

Fantastic weekend !!! http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll123/Diamond-Lyn/10_1_201.gif ... many many thanks to Tony, Catherine, Andy, Steve and Sarah ... ...http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll123/Diamond-Lyn/lovayas.gif

.... despite the fact I was sent home with a punishment ... I have to stand in the naughty-corner all day! http://i302.photobucket.com/albums/nn107/loobylindylou/naughtycorner.gif

Sammi is exactly as I knew she'd be ... fun & fabulous ... a sweetheart ... http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll123/Diamond-Lyn/88.gif

P-doodle? (not allowed to use her real name 'cos she's in the SAS) ....quote "I used to be all innocent & pure" ???

http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll123/Diamond-Lyn/1417animatedsmiley.gif Don't you believe a word of it!!

http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll123/Diamond-Lyn/Hahaha4.gif We all know what that means don't we guys? http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll123/Diamond-Lyn/laughat.gif

Graham? Well his late-night post on the Announcements & Breaking News pages ....
(obviously done on his return from the Coloured Rocks Manor)
.... publicly declaring his 'stepping down from Roving Reporter/Photographer' position says it all!! http://i302.photobucket.com/albums/nn107/loobylindylou/a3.gif WE'RE SORRY!! xxxxx

14-07-2008, 12:01 PM
Sounds like an http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i82/mars40/smilies/3_3_11v.gif weekend, Lyn!

Wonder how long it'll take everyone at Coloured Rocks to recover http://i306.photobucket.com/albums/nn266/cougar2400/Smilies/whistling.gif

http://i306.photobucket.com/albums/nn266/cougar2400/Smilies/dunno.gif ..... will they ever be the same again? http://i258.photobucket.com/albums/hh244/lsu31always/Smilies/iconrotflmao.gif

14-07-2008, 01:28 PM
Yeah, major apologies to Graham who will never get over the shock of meeting us demented wimmin!!! the poor love - he's going to need counselling for a very long time....

er nope Fluff, they'll never get over it. the sight of us lot breaking loose at CR Towers is burned on their retinas :D

it was great to meet the Big Cheeses of CR and ST on the same day - however I think we might have left them with permanently wrinkly noses from the experience.

Lyn - love ya back hun!! Pepsi ain't a bad sort either, I thought lol

14-07-2008, 03:35 PM
I wonder if coloured rocks will ever run another competition again ?

http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll123/Diamond-Lyn/hellosmiley.gif Ok so I was gonna give you a full run-down of events but quite frankly I'd be here all day

so I picked out a couple of key points ....

I was right http://i302.photobucket.com/albums/nn107/loobylindylou/redface1.gif ... .... http://i302.photobucket.com/albums/nn107/loobylindylou/impatient.gif I am NOT safe to be let out of the house alone http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll123/Diamond-Lyn/laugh3.gif

I promise you the CR guys enjoyed themselves as much as we did! ....http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll123/Diamond-Lyn/girl_crazy1.gif

I can recommend the course/weekend .... informal, informative & fun .... the CR guys will obviously adapt to how serious or fun (or naughty!) any particular group want to make it http://i302.photobucket.com/albums/nn107/loobylindylou/0828cffb.gif

Steve gave us a couple of 'top secret' bits of gen ... don't even ask 'cos our lips are sealed http://i302.photobucket.com/albums/nn107/loobylindylou/zipped1.gif

(for Katherine & Andy xx ) ............................
informal term for information; "give me the gen on your new line of computers"

Glad you all had a good time. :Thumbsup: Even more pleased that Lyn didn't manage to get any of you arrested http://smileyshut.com/smileys/new/Transports/police-035.gif

Pepsidoodle I believe you when you say you were sweet and innocent http://smileyshut.com/smileys/new/Angels-and-Demons/mini-ange-q822.gif but of course that was before you met those two old ravers :Laughing1:

Well done ladies, delighted for you xx :Applause:

15-07-2008, 06:14 PM

I see Sammi failed to disclose that she also pulled 5 minutes later http://i302.photobucket.com/albums/nn107/loobylindylou/dronken.gif


See someone out there believes me! :D

Blimey ... pulled the wool over Klos's eyes haven't you PD? Must be all that SAS training

P.Doodle getting ready to go out at 6pm .... http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll123/Diamond-Lyn/File%202/5042_1_b-1-1.jpg

P.Doodle in hotel bar ... balaclava in hand ... at midnight http://i302.photobucket.com/albums/nn107/loobylindylou/LA839B1117.gif http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll123/Diamond-Lyn/File%202/l_682c89fb8874e94eae312f29baf431-1.jpg

To be fair it wasn't entirely our fault.
Tony gave us 'homework' to take back to the hotel ... for a bit of fun he said http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll123/Diamond-Lyn/huhsmileyf3.gif

We misheard & thought he said "I want you to drink the hotel bar dry by 10pm"

What he actually said was "I want you to memorize the complete list of Birthstones"


16-07-2008, 06:59 AM
I'm really glad you all had a great time, Is the house and grounds as lovely as it looks on the photos? You all sound like a great bunch it must have been fun. Graham and Daniel sorry you had a bad journey, hope the rst of the weekend made up for it.


16-07-2008, 07:42 AM
Joking aside, yes it is a handsome Manor House ... Steve says they have a resident ghost http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll123/Diamond-Lyn/File%202/ani90.gif

set in delightful grounds .... lots of wildlife frolicking on the lawns ..... http://i302.photobucket.com/albums/nn107/loobylindylou/ymca.gif

although I do think Tony is rather spoiling the grass in those heels .... http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll123/Diamond-Lyn/pimpsmily.gif

16-07-2008, 08:40 PM
Lyn you are mad but you really give me a good laugh so please don't ever change cos I'd miss you :BigHug: xx

and you think Lyn was kidding about Tony's heels?!

I still haven't got over Andy's pink hair lol

oh and it wasn't me who pulled, but our Lyn actually :D but she was dressed to kill at the time. Pepsi and I beat a hasty retreat before she tried foisting her conquest on us!

17-07-2008, 08:50 PM
Ah you all sound as if you had a great time......just trying to work out who led who astray!!!:confused: Well done peeps, now what did you learn that actually related to Gems?????;) .... annnnnddddd did any body but anything while they was there??:D

21-07-2008, 12:50 PM
yes we learned stuff about gems Jo, esp how it's a wonderful and absorbing topic to get into. and how there are so many wonderful gems out there....

no we didn't buy anything as the vault was not open.

I think Pepsi was the main instigator of the trouble lol - mad as a box of monkeys that girl is!

21-07-2008, 05:17 PM
I think Pepsi was the main instigator of the trouble lol - mad as a box of monkeys that girl is!

:D I was going to try and deny this - but I can't!!!

I think I've got the gem/jewellery bug badly now.....
& while I didn't buy on the day - I went mad on the website when I got home (the blue diamind jobby on the other thread) & I must post a piccy of the other one asap.

I've got some annual leave coming up soon - do you think they'd mind if I just dropped in :p !!!!!
