Me on Monday - late!!!

It was a Dalek seeing, Darth Vader avoiding, Storm Trooper rebuking, K9 patting, Cardiff Jack Sparrow ogling, Minion hugging, T-shirt wearing, convention organising kind of a weekend. Dragondaze! We were so tired by Saturday night that I slept for 12 hours straight. We enjoyed it so much we are doing it again next year. We raised £1000 for Barnardo's Young Carers, a charity that supports children who care for sick or disabled parents. We had several local children there with us and they had a fabulous time playing board games and Role Playing games and we also had War games and loads of trade stands. I will show you my Organiser T-shirt another day. I managed to avoid being photographed because I spent most of the day taking money and giving out the badges that allowed the people to get into the games.
There is a man inside this Dalek. I saw him get in. It was great seeing the little kids screaming as he moved silently along the corridors and when they found the lifts the word they used was "Elevate". made me larf
This one is radio controlled. OH, oh see the round yellow bits? my cousin supplied those to the company that made them
Cardiff Jack Sparrow. He is amazing! he has the voice and the walk and all the mannerisms - and he is, so my daughter says, HOT. Who am I to disagree? very nice to rest ones eyes on I must say

The lovely man inside this minion is the man who was inside the Dalek. After he had entertained as the Minion he took off the costume... out of sight of the paying public of course and went to get his lunch from the cafeteria. He gave them his voucher, they gave him the bag with the food. He opened it and inside was a banana. I am told that Minions love bananas - would kill for one.

You can't be late when you had such a great weekend Monday had to be recovery day!

Not only looks like loads of fun, it's a cause very close to my heart. I love this.
