I had a wonderful final day at the show yesterday… Dinner out with my American family was wonderful last night, we kept up the Anaheim show tradition of going to Mortons the food was amazing and there were a couple of little surprises too …

I received wonderful birthday presents of Godiva chocolate and a beautiful Brighton necklace all wrapped up in a del taco bag, which was so funny … Seen as I had proclaimed that essence of chicken tacos “sucked butt” earlier in the week 🙂 … Rand had recommended it as good food and it was truly terrible!

The restaurant staff took a fab group photo and printed it for me … How fab 🙂

CHA Anaheim day 6 – sooo much to show you! and a very embarrassing moment!

So yesterday was crammed with exciting stuff, I spent some time talking to Michelle about my favourite subject! how Collall is the best glue in the world!

She decided she need a photo of my and my favourite 🙂

20140113-055539.jpg

Then we got some official booth photo’s

20140113-055658.jpg

20140113-055738.jpg

Andy Love popped by the Booth with his roving reporting crew which was fab fun…

20140113-055849.jpg

I then had a very busy walking around the show rest of he day……

So we went to one of my favourite places for dinner Bubba Gump’s

One of favourite bits is when Simon gets all the quiz questions correct! Here he is deep in thought….

20140113-061004.jpg

Then came the very embarrassing moment of my surprise Birthday song where all the waiters come and sing and clap loudly make you stand up and generally humiliate you by asking you to “go banana’s” needless to say the rest of the gang found it hilarious!

20140113-082205.jpg

20140113-082213.jpg
