Get to know us…
When booking certain suppliers for your event/ wedding you may get a pre-event/wedding meeting to get to know the supplier and to finalise details. However, when booking with us for either Photo Booth or Light Up Letters we may not meet until we arrive at your event, or we may briefly speak at a Showcase or fayre. The point we are making is you may feel like you barely know us, right?
Well we are hoping to change that a little bit. We want to share with you some funny and embarrassing moments that seem to occur more often than we would like them to, and maybe make you giggle… a lot. We have been told many times we should Blog about these situations because they are such “Soap Opera” moments that it would be a crime not to share them.

So here it goes…
A couple of weeks ago I was wearing a pair of my favourite black skinny jeans which I must have owned for nearly 3 years. I knew they were getting a little threadbare, but they were so comfy, and I therefore couldn’t bring myself to throw them out, I mean they were still wearable.
They soon became unwearable when they ripped all down the bum and inside the legs. Luckily in the comfort of my own home.
I put them on the floor ready to be put in the bin and moved on to a task. When I returned the jeans weren’t there anymore, so I assumed Darren had put them in the bin.
This is where it starts heading downhill.
A couple weeks pass…
…and we are heading out to Team Valley to pick up a few things for our boys. I was rushing around that morning, throwing on anything that came to hand in my wardrobe, including another pair of black jeans.
Anyone who has small children will agree what pure bliss long car journeys become when the children fall asleep and you’re just left with that silence. Our two little ones fell asleep together in the car, which rarely happens. Darren offered to just run into the shop himself, but I said that I would just quickly run in as it would be a lot faster because I knew exactly where the item was and would avoid having to wake the boys.
Oh, how I regret making that decision.
I walked into that shop with such confidence, like “hell yeah, I know what I need and where it is” Anyone who does know me will know that I am quite shy and can be a little socially awkward. A few years ago, I would completely avoid any situation where I would have to talk to someone I didn’t know.
So, this was going pretty well… right?
I picked up the item we needed, which was located on a bottom shelf, headed for the check out and had to wait a while whilst the assistant took the item to remove a stubborn security tag. A queue of impatient shoppers was building so I was pleased when the assistant returned, and I was free to go.
I got back to the car and went to climb in, then horror struck!
Those jeans I thought were thrown away a couple of weeks ago were in fact not in the bin, but I was wearing them!!
Oh. My. Word!
I had just been walking around in public with my bum out, and I hadn’t event noticed! There is no way it could have not been noticed. I am mortified. I started thinking of the massive queue that was stood behind me for almost 5 minutes and I wanted the ground to swallow me.
Turned out Darren had hung my jeans back into my wardrobe. How kind of him!
It’s safe to say I will not be returning to that store and those jeans are now safely in the bin.
