Good Morning everyone! i hope you've been having a wonderful week and have been enjoying the guest post!
So, here the right up of Day 2... (Day one can be found here)
I set my alarm for "bright and early" but i also managed to sleep right through it, some how turning it off instead of 'snoozing' - so when i woke up the next day, the first day of the training, i was already late. my clock said 7:45 and they stopped serving breakfast at 8:15 and training began at 8:30! Holy snap. so i leapt out of bed and got dressed and made my way downstairs in time to eat a banana and a weirdly toasted bagel, it took me a few tries to understand the toaster thinger - it had like a moving track... anyway, the most important part was:
When you're a blogger, you take a lot of selfies. ;)
After cramming a few bottles of water into my bag, i tried ever so quietly to sneak in.... and saw this:
The room was packed!!
And also? they had already started. Classy, Laura... REAAAAAL Classy.
I managed to find an open seat a few tables from the back and tip toed in. I ended up sitting next to Hannah, one of the ladies from the night before.
Here's the first tile we made:
My memory is a little fuzzy, so - i may have some of the time lines and conversations will not be verbatim.... but anyway, at coffee break the woman to my left said:
"You're Laura Harms!"
i said: "Yes I am!"
she said: "I'm Katie C from your blog!"
i said: "Hello, Katie C! i'm Laura Harms from my blog!"
It was really quite amazing to meet people who have been reading my blog for the past 4 years and doing the challenges.
|After the morning session we all put our tiles together in a mosaic. |
It's so fascinating to see how everyone does something different

One of my favourite moments from this day was a woman standing next to me in the line up for food gave me a once over and said; "You look familiar... are you on the internet?"
to which i replied with a smile: "yeah, sometimes."
i still get a little chuckle outta that one.
after lunch Katie C, Hannah and Sheena and i went for a bit of a walk around the shops - checking out the area. I was mostly impressed with the architecture - they just don't make building like that anymore.

Here's a closer look at some of the decorative work...
The evening session was great, it was an interesting guided Zentangle meditation led by Molly.
Okay, so - i had THE BEST TIME with these ladies right here. Clockwise: Sheena, Beate, Hannah, Katie and Me. They were hilarious. I won't, and can't, give you all the details because some of those details are NSFW. But the conversation did circle around cursing in different languages - and how things i've been saying in my daily life don't actually mean what i thought they mean.... They mean something completely different....
