It was my partners first lfcc and first ever convention so an exciting time. We initially had everything booked and then decided we couldn't afford it so cancelled hotels etc.
Then Thursday night decided know what? We are doing this. Booked last minute photo shoots and after work on Friday we came down.
So Friday at 6pm we set off to London from Aberdeen! Stopped at a service station or two for naps and arrived at olympia for 9am. Then we set off back to Aberdeen at 6pm on Saturday and got back at about 8am today. Absolutely crazy but absolutely worth it.
Massive thanks to gemma whelan for letting us take a photo with her when we told her. We were going to get an op but they had sold out. She tweeted this morning saying she had been worrying about us getting home bless her. Such a gem!
My partner has definitely got the bug now and I'm so happy because conventions are such a big part of my life.
Only wish we hadn't cancelled everything and were able to come Friday to Sunday as originally planned.
However, we got the ops we wanted aside Portman and whelan but we met both the last two and yeah. Perfect.
