Christmas Dickens - The Intro

Christmas Tree + James
What can I say - other than the fact James is one gorgeous guy who still continues to give so much to his fans .... old and new.

The rest of my weekend report will go up later, but I need to babble about James, otherwise I think I may explode - and that would be a real mess over Dad's computer!

The event was at St Paul's, Covent Garden and as you can see it is in a central location, and the area was having a Christmas Fair ... which was lovely to see, but only as part of the backdrop to the more important details of the day - Squee, I saw James arrive, but didn't dare even say Hello (using the excuse that it was "his" time, he wouldn't want to be disturbed!

About half an hour before the doors opened I walked round to the front -


And was pleased to spot luckster25and her fiance .... we had met at the last event, and it was wonderful to see her again - and to get a great big hug.

We chatted, and squeeeeeeed, and then the time came to go in -  The queue was great - seeing a few faces that I recognised from past events ... and getting the biggest hug from deborahw37... who I had met at my first ever James event.  All of us have so much to thank James for ... and one of those things is friends.

As we entered we all had a Christmas pressie (mine was make-up which I laughed at, as I don't wear it!  Maybe I should take the hint!!) ... and a Christmas card.


I was in the second row back, and smiled at a few faces I knew, sadly though many friends that I had met weren't there this year ... but there again, the person next but one to me was a newbie ... so it was great to get to know her.

As ever the evnt started with hellos, and details about buying more photos (which you already know I did) ... and Steve (James manager) selling things -


And, so started my day!

.... Loads more to follow!

That picture of Steve is priceless! As was the chance to give you a hug!

That image of Steve is great, if slighlty "soft-focus" ... he is such a part of an event, it is good to get a picture.

That hug was great - as was seeing you again ... we must get James to come over again soon, if only to be able to repeat it!

I love that photo of Steve. He has become part of seeing James to me. He can be friendly, but turn quickly if he thinks someone is misbehaving.

I notice some missing faces back in Sept as well. Some I know only by name from LJ where not there this year.

It is good to see Steve involved with the day (more about that later!) ... he is a good support for James, isn't he?

Yes, pity that people have moved on ... but I am still a one-man girl!

LOL - the newbie I sat with had a CD, and it didn't actually say what it was!
