Default FANFEST 2007..

Awww geez....finally home safe and sound (after a very foggy/major busy drive up the M1) yuk!!

Well what can I say - i had an absolute blast this year. Im sure I say that every year but honestly there was something differnt about this fest EVERYONE seemed in such a major party mood, great to look around and see so many fanfesters huggin/kissin/laughing/dancing with each other : the luxury transport the to gig still tickles me!! Ahhh it brings a huge smile to my face everytime i think of this weekend

There was about 80 people there including faces from the past that were not part of this years fest, but naturally were made very welcome as we bumped into them at the gig/outside/in the e&t.

Great to finally meet Groovy Les & Lara who (bless them) came to the hotel to meet other loonies in between their busy weekend. Thanks for making the effort guys and MAJOR thanks Les for the chooooooooonnnnnnnnn to my mobile yes like a sad cow I was listening to my phone on the drive home

Great to meet the REBEL possese......Soul and his family are such fun, nice, warm friendly people what a great family unit you have Soul, hope your brothers/sister enjoyed your first fanfest and thank you so much Bobby for the card & chocolates...yum
Good to see Tony of Brum and Clubreggae & family briefly too

Thank you all soooooooo much for the really kind words of support & thanks and the very unexpected gifts,.

Major thanks to all those I met this year and those I didnt - but who signed the autograph book...Tina & Ness, Nods,Champs & Del, Eloisa, Astrid, Reggae Girl(s), Tina (Grinner), Sarah K, Rob & Jen, Tanya, AnneMarie,Morgs, Soul & Jaye, SoulRasta, DJ (and your s*t jokes) Pacino - nice to meet Emily, Pixi, Allison, Dawn & Alex, LadyLynne & Alan, Natasha & Beana33, Dubgal & Michelle, Jucqui & Buny, Caja & Andi, bOi, Millie, Michelle & Richie, Jumbo (got your hugs/kisses from Del), Reza, Annie & Helena, Nicola & hubby, TinaT, Ghettogirl, Sting & Mandy, Lorrafan & Tony - looking forward to the London Reggae Fest in 2008! , Sparkler, Angie (RobinsDuvet), Terry & mini K - could you see over the barrier at NEC?! Crucial T & (his son) The new sexy slimline Lynn & Al.B - my fantastic, well organised, partners in Fanfest crime....Nige & Mia and not forgetting the Tarts : who kick started my hard core partying this year from last Thursday - geez just when I thought I couldnt sing, shout, dance or laff anymore - they just keep ya going!!!! Big up to everyone - if Ive missed your name off the list I sincerely apologise - but Im sure I got round everyone at least once for a hug/kiss and hopefully made you all feel welcome at FANFEST 2007!!!

From start to finish this has been a great weekend - Ive laffed until my stomach hurt, cried while watching my boys, drank far too much alcohol, partyed hard one night after the other after the other and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

I look forward to seeing all the pics and hearing all the tales from the other loonie festeters.

Right now I need a foot massage - and a detox plan

Massive thanks to everyone for making this Fanfest weekend so special and sooooooooooo much fun.

Love you all. Have a FABULOUS Christmas everyone, hope you all got home safe - enjoy and look after each other.
