Coit shenanigans

so you probably all remember me telling you about my camping group the Coits if not this is  a quick recap 

the Coits are the group of people we go camping with every easter and if possible several times a year
but we also all catch up for various other activities, including the show firework BBQ,  christmas parties, birthday celebrations you name it . . . . .

now the Coits are a pretty crazy bunch and there is always some high-jinks and shenanigans going on and this is the latest tale

you all probably remember that last year Coke had a promotion where you purchased can's with your name on it well apparently you could pay to get you name put on a can so

hairy Coit and his wife decided he would get a Coit can made

they were pretty proud of the can but someone coveted their possession 

after a seemingly innocent visit when a new trailer was being viewed
the Coit can disappeared

several hours later a text message arrived 
Burning Coit (now known as Thieving Coit) had stolen/borrowed the can . . . .

 Hairy and his wife 
were devastated to lose their prize possession and made several pleas for it's safe return
to no avail 
so a plan was hatched

they travelled to thieving Coit's house and whilst Hairy distracted thieving Coit  his wife now known as kidnapping coit 
borrowed Thieving Coits prize possession

Lounging M & M

a return text message soon followed as they attempted to ransom their can

Thieving and sticky Coit were shocked and dismayed at the lose of lounging M & M

and posted a plea for his return

but to no avail, Hairy and kidnapping Coit would not be swayed unless their can was returned

they soon sent further images showing 

the fun and games (torture)  Lounging M & M was receiving

so in an act of desperation thieving Coit launched the crack team of 

M & M


to no avail 
(it was a very hot day and the M & M's were at risk of cracking their shells and melting)

Last Saturday several members of the Coit clan converged at hairy's including dusty (my hubby), not long after everyone had left Hairy discovered that lounging M & M had disappeared 
a frantic search occurred, 
but he was not found

suspicions were raised and the finger was soon pointed at Crusy Coit's wife
it was believed that she had taken the M & M with view of returning it to thieving Coit

enraged  kidnapping Coit took off to confront the accused 

she was bound and gagged, tortured  a little

(we think she actually enjoyed it)
but she refused to confess and pleaded innocence

it was later discovered that Lounging M & M was hidden away in Hairy and 
kidnapping Coits house

The M & M's became hostile and took some revenge

Hairy and kidnapping Coit's son was bound and gagged

and Lounging M & M made an attempted escape
gagging and binding 
hairy Coit

however he was unsuccessful and remains a captive

the can also is still in Thieving Coite's possession

will all be righted this year at the annual easter camp?
will the can return home?
will lounging M & M gain his freedom?

well you will have to stay tuned for further updates

catch you later

GDITC 2012

wow i can't believe that it has been 8 days since GDITC 2012 and like  Sandy i have found since returning home i have had to pay for my sins and work like a trojan . . . . .   lol

i have worked 6 out of the last 7 days and that's just the payed employment, then here was the washing, ironing and general housework. . .   lol

but enough of that no whinging on this blog today
onto the good stuff


was as always fabulous

Alison and myself arrived just after lunch, and after checking in we immediately headed off for some shopping at Kerry' s and McClellands and Odgers

Nundle as always was pretty as a picture

we joined our fellow GDITC groupies for a some nibbles and bubbles on the lawn

and a bit of show and tell
Cardygirl (above) and Bird on the border (below)
had some wonderful quilts to show
 there were many other gorgeous quilts on show as well

Then off to Mt Misery for a fabulous dinner

we chatted and laughed so much we lost track of time and
Peg and Dales had to remind us with a friendly tap on the window
 we needed to get going to the trunkshow

Sue Daley's trunkshow was amazing i loved this quilt

and this one has me very interested
Sue is running it as a Block of the month and i am very tempted . . . .would love it in blues

I woke really early on the Saturday (like a child on christmas day . . . .) to find that Nundle was shrouded in mist it was stunning to see and had me racing to grab my camera

however the mist soon lifted and the sun shone down on what was to be a wonderful day

waiting to get in . . . .

The door to paradise 
(ok i have been listening to a lot of coldplay lately and this song is always in my head . . . LOL)
