I'm on the train on my way to Lancaster, hence to Heysham and the boat home. D-d is to meet me from the boat this evening and take me the last two or three miles home - and my Great Tolkien Adventure will be over. I will write it up properly tonight... or maybe tomorrow.

Suffice it to say, just for now, that I had an excellent time and met some lovely people.

I am heading for home a little later than everyone else as I went to [livejournal.com profile] gillo's on Monday and we wound down together.

I have lots of pictures to share, and a website or two to link to, and...

Actually, in reality, I have washing to do and will, doubtless, have to shop. I think it might take less than a couple of days before I am swallowed up by the flow of everyday life!
location: On The Train! Near Preston.
Mood:: 'tired' tired

I'm glad you had a good time. What a marvelous event!

And now I'm on the boat! Don't sail for a while though.

It was wonderful - I will have to get out my programme when I get home and really look back at which talks and workshops I went to - sometimes there were four streams at the same time and it was really difficult to decide what to attend.

Gillo is a wonderful hostess, is she not? I'm glad you two had such a good time and am looking forward to pictures and tales.

We had a brilliant time - we are a bit of a geeky 'terrible twosome' when we get together for a week!

I will take time to get my thoughts together, and get my pictures onto the laptop - and then I will doubtless be spamming on the subject left, right, and centre!

I'm looking forward to your write up to see how much we both went to!

I'm going to sit down and do it properly tomorrow - I'm not back at work till next week - it was a very good way to use annual leave!

Thank you! It was a wonderful trip - so glad that Gill and I decided to go.

Oooh - nice icon! It was a wonderful 5 days - and I asked the wee Brazilian girl where she came from - Sao Paulo which is, I think, where you had predicted!

So, she was tiny too. Yes, it was São Paulo. There São Paulo Tolkien fans are quite active.

Can't wait for the pictures. Bring them on.
