Clearly I'm confused Kev! Was there not a lady with you, pretty, shortish dark hair- and wearing (probably) Venetian foiled glass beads with millifiori bits? I'm sure the next day I deliberately wore a set of mine and asked you about the millifiori.
I may get people confused and forget faces, even, but I don't forget glass!
Cheers, Sue (M)

Ah, yes Sue.

That lady was actually one of the founding members of the Cambridge Paperweight Circle, an avid collector of weights and related objects; she began her collecting in the 1950s when I was just a wee lad in short trousers and had never heard of anything "antique" or "art glass" or "paperweights".

Aplogies for making assumptions, Kev, I thought/asssumed you were together. :-[

I do hope to be at the next conference in Edinburgh, but travelling  arrangements are completely up in the air at the moment.
(Sounds crazy, given the distance some folk travel to get there, but it's the simple truth. Both logistical and financial constraints. I don't know where my brother will be staying - if he's in Perth, which would make sense for him, Dundee could not really be included in the journey!)

There's a new ringroad around Edinburgh, makes the journey 30 minutes longer from Dundee - and that's when there are no hold-ups.
Last time we went, it took over two hours to get to our destination. We used to get where we wanted in about 50 minutes. Michael does not go over the speed limit.
Cheers, Sue (M)
