Two of my friends/team members - Tanya and Sandra - and I, left Perth on the Tuesday morning flight - hello 3am wake up! We had a fantastic flight across to Brisbane with Qantas. We took the Airtrain to Southbank and pulled our already heavy suitcases up Melbourne Street to the Central West End Apartments and settled in, before heading out for snack supplies.
We headed to Southbank for dinner and found this little cafe/restaurant called "Steam" that had a great selection, so with the view of the river and the Brisbane skyline in front of us, we dug in!
The next morning we were able to sleep in a bit. We went for a walk around Southbank and found ourselves at San Churros - omg! They were divine! We all had a different drink but we ALL had churros!!
The girls walked me up to the convention centre to attend my very first Leadership - in fact it was a first for everyone as Leadership Training is new to Australia. It was very interesting and gave me lots of ideas to put into practice as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. I was lucky enough to sit near the lovely Jacinta Ryan!
She kindly invited me to sit with her as I didn't really know anyone, and that night at the Managers Reception, she once again invited me onto her table for dinner, which was so nice - I wouldn't have enjoyed myself half as much if she hadn't!
I met some gorgeous ladies, had a really lovely meal, all of our names were up in lights on the big screen, and as we left for the evening, we were greeted by some of the staff at the home office who gave out gorgeous little gifts!! PLUS we got our fantastic silver and white convention bag - this year it is a backpack! So handy to carry around all of our Make and Take supplies and all of the other little gifts we received during convention. (sure did get heavy lol!).
