|Me & my zits arrive at the show|
After handing over my free tickets, downloaded hastily from the internet that morning, I walked into my own equivalent of wonderland. I didn't know which way to go first. Should I follow my nose to where the food waft was wafting from or pop over to the massage chairs (don't care that I can eat them, I got me some achy bones) or even check out the face creams made from who knows what grown from home?? My nose won.
First up, I discovered the Galloway Fudge Company, where I bought some oh so delicious Sicilian Lemon Marshmallows. Lots of flavours of marshmallows and fudge were out for me and Hubby to nibble on, but this flavour won for me.
A bit further on and a lady from Melody-Claire pulled me over. She was enquiring about whether I shaved or waxed and I instinctively looked down to see if my legs looked like extras from Planet of the Apes. She showed her a buffer looking product and asked my man to test it. Looking most dubious he extended his arm and she performed a kind of 'wax on, wax off' manoeuvre across a hairy patch of arm. Seconds later, Hubs looked at the shiny bald patch in amazement. It was quick, painless, seemed effortless and no friction burns appeared. I handed over £20 for a years supply of buffer things immediately whilst secretly hoping it works on lady'tashe.
There was one particular stand however, where he kept stealing my samples. The Daura Damm aka, Beer Stand. What can I say except "WOW". I can never, EVER drink beers without looking like I've either swallowed a football, or am due to give birth imminently. The aftermath always ends up with 3am duvet! Gluten-free beer that tastes as good as any German beer (my favourite kind). Apparently, this stuff is available in Asda, Morrisons, & Waitrose. I know what's top of my shopping list for Christmas Festivities now Oh, along with Udi's Bagels which I also discovered you can buy from Tesco, & Asda ; am munching
on a free sample pack of bagels as I write this blog.

Well, with so many exhibitors to mention and a bag load of goodies to try, I can honestly say I'm chuffed to bits that I went to this show! I am definitely going again next year. In the meantime, I'm off to bin all my cardboard food - no room for it in my kitchen cupboards anymore.
