Due to undecision about returning or not this year, in the end we decided just to pop there for the day instead (and stay in a much cheaper travelodge outside lincoln). It was odd to do it for the day but nice to see everyone again, although a bit rushed to fit everyone and everything (as it grows bigger each year) and between the catching up with friends and markets ...failed at doing any talks and much events. Also this was the first year ever (and this was our 6th one) that we didn't go to the Ball but the last few were very disapointing so instead had a fun night drinking at Tash and john, followed by thain restaurant and amoretto beer at the Victoria.
I had a new camera which was a bit complicated and confusing, so most photos were blurry and didn't catch many outfits . Still it had a fun dramatic and soft button i rather enjoyed .
the only 2 function i seemed to managed to work on there. the auto kept getting out of focus. spent my time turning it on and off. Cracked screen so sent back to amazon..need to think a bit more on replacement not sure that one was for me
