Hobbycraft opens in Aberdeen

Technically the Hobbycraft store in Aberdeen opened on Thursday, but they were giving away freebies allegedly to the first 100 people this morning. So I left the house in plenty of time, and after a wee bit of faffing around, parked the car right outside the store at 20 to 9. Only to find a ridiculous queue of people waiting to get in. So I figured there was more than 100 people there so just waited in the car - I get too sore from standing up, and forgot to take some Tramadol before I left.
Anyway, I never saw anyone getting anything, does anyone know if they did it? did anyone get anything?
Well I went with a list of things I needed and got most of them - couldn't find any foam tape though. So I got some silver curb chain and jump rings for putting charms on my cards, some of my trusty core'dinations card - a selection of pinks this time, finally got some Bloom & Grow and thats pretty much it really. 
The queue to be served at the tills was right to the back of the store, but the girls on the tills were flat out so it didn't take too long.
But I was in the store for an hour, and all that standing up without drugs isn't good - so I slept almost all afternoon. Yup, I'm a complete waste of space. 

You're probably thinking I'm a bit of a lazy ass, there hasn't been much in the way of proper posts or crafting going on, but you'd be wrong (about the lack of crafting at least, you'd be right about me being an idle toad lol) I've been beavering away with DT work and the other exciting thing I haven't told you about, more about that soon hopefully. Am hoping to share some cards with you in the week, cos tomorrow is Pepsi update day.
Hope you all had a good halloween
