Going up to Lincoln TOMORROW!!!

Can't come soon enough! I'll be bringing some of my miniature pewter (that's PEW-PEW-Pewter) rayguns, find me, buy some; they'll also not be at the Illicit Market on Sunday, as there isn't one.

Heading off shortly...

I am extremely annoyed with Premier Inn. I am not stupid and will not easily have made this mistake: I am not in central Lincoln, I am 7 miles away. I am VERY vexed. I will now have a 25 minute drive in and out. Won't be able to just stroll round, take a break in the hotel, quick 10 minutes to change between events etc.

When I search their site for a place I have never been to before and it says 'central Lincoln' I expect it to be in 'central Lincoln'. 7 miles wouldn't even be central in most large cities.

This also means a dry weekend - won't be able to drink anything.

Oh god, I know that pain. If I remember rightly they call the new one actually in the centre of Lincoln "Lincoln City Centre". And your post here has made me paranoid I might have accidentally booked the wrong hotel.

Still sewing the night before Asylum!
I'm a little nervous, are most people going in Steampunk attire?
It's my first time at Asylum, so I'm a bit apprehensive.

Don't worry, despite my ability to kill threads with a single post everyone in the SP community is really friendly. You may even get some compliments.

Just remember, we all started somewhere and no one has ever gotten good at anything overnight (contrary to what 'reality' TV would have you believe).

Drat - we could have met up in the hotel to say 'hello'. Sorry, I didn't have time to go online before heading off on Friday evening. We took a taxi in and out; not too bad, only £7 each way. I hope the inconvenience of the location didn't spoil your weekend.

Yours,
Miranda.

Actually, my family were a little the same as it was our fist time too, but everyone was so wonderfully friendly, including many of the traders who were especially generous to my daughter as it was her birthday over the weekend.

I hope you enjoyed the weekend as much as we did,

Yours,
Miranda.

Well whilst all you lot were bopping around up country. I fought a particularly vicious pack of 10 foot tall leylandii.

It went 3 rounds and I won 2-1. I am now wrapped in savlon. It's not Lincoln, but by the gods the victory was a sweet one!

EXTREME TOPIARY! Hazzah!

Did you not break out your whip sir and beat them into line? Or perhaps challenge them to a friendly tea duel?

What ho chaps and chapess'

I think I've probably seen every public domain photo going of the 2014 Asylum. Fear not, I was not being weird and creepy, I just couldn't get there myself for one reason or another so I had to view it through the eyes of others Cry True to form it seems to be going from strength to strength. As ever, everyone looked splendid, the contraptions more inspired, and the facial hair was positively thrilling.

I look forward very much to attending next year!
