I'm Back...

Hello blogfriends... I've just returned from a staff conference which I've been attending since Sunday afternoon.  There were 140 of us from all over the country.  The last time we all got together was in March 2008, so it was wonderful connecting with our extended family members again.  There are some new faces amongst our staff, so it was nice meeting them for the first time too. 

I thought I'd just share a few random pics that I took whilst I was there... nothing fabulous, but hey... we're just sharing, right??

Here's one section of the Breakfast Bar... look at all those yummy croissants, muffins, etc.  I am following a very strict eating plan, so had to resist!! Flip... it was soooo difficult, but I did not succumb to the temptation !

This was the healthy side of the Breakfast Bar, which I did help myself to.  Lovely fresh South African fruit with yoghurt to start the day... hmmmm

Here's the main Conference room where we gathered each day... It can divide into 3 to create separate breakaway rooms for the various groups.

This is where we gathered to have our tea and coffee breaks.  This balcony overlooks London Road... which is the front of the Hotel.

You've seen pics of Table Mountain on my blog before.  I've never been up this close and thought I'd make use of this opportunity to show you the part of the mountain where the cable car departs from.

Back: Jacqui, Ilse and Abi  Front: Michele, Sharon and Tanya

And this is our group of Regional Administrators from all over the country. So nice catching up with them.  We had a wonderful, informative workshop session.  So sad saying goodbye today.

Well... this is where I have been for the past 2 and a half days... It is wonderful being home again and I am so going to enjoy sleeping in my own bed tonight. No matter how luxurious the room, I cannot sleep anywhere but in my own bed...

Lovely seeing some new faces amongst my Creative Friends on top.  Thanks so much for joining, I look forward to visiting you soon.  hugs Sharon x
