Thank you Blackpool. Missing you already…

Lady Lily The PinkWell that was a weekend and a half.  I still don’t know if it was decided what the collective noun for a gathering of Loonies should be but in my own rose-tinted world I elect to call them a Laughter of Loonies.  Fitting tribute as I cannot remember when i laughed for so long and so hard.

Which is saying something because I like to laugh.  And I laugh A LOT.  Big, loud, raucous.  Full on , unabashed , no holds barred.  And for that I must apologise for the rest of the residents of the New Guilderoy Hotel !

Although to be fair , the hotel is Loony run… by the fabulous Lord Guilderoy and our Party Chief Whip

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThey very kindly found a small corner for us Loony Sistas to costume change and refresh throughout the weekend so we could attend the annual Monster Raving Loony Party Conference The New Guilderoy is an eclectic mix of  decades and objet d’art. The whole building and welcome was a delightful surprise, a joyful eccentricity and the perfect home to host a bus load of Loons.  And the breakfast… well… it saved the days after the nights before. Thank you , thank you, thank you.

So what is involved in a Monster Raving Loony Party Conference?

Firstly there’s the members ‘Meet and Greet’ , this year at Uncle Toms Cabin… (what a great team they have there – the staff were AWESOME)











Then there’s the Party bus tour to Meet the Electorate….












Followed by the Leaders Speech and Cabinet Reshuffle….

Then there’s the conference (over a pint in Uncle Toms Cabin)… plans for the Welsh Assembly Elections next May… sorry , no cameras allowed in the conference room !

And, finally, we can all relax.  Time for a post conference Party party…

Rose Tinted Ramblings

I'm Bernice but unless I'm in trouble, it's Berni. I laugh heartily; love wholely and live completely. I write what I think. Sometimes its fun, sometimes its political, sometimes its frustration, or angst. Always its real and heartfelt. I now live in Mid Wales having found a home with my family (John, my parner and Jason, our son) here in Llanwrtyd Wells where everyday eccentricity is celebrated. a place in the UK that attracts those from outside the mainstream and has created an identity based on its quirkiness. A perfect home for someone like me who tends not to follow the crowd, doesn't have a quiet laugh, and tends to speak first, think later! Life has reached a juncture where I have become aware that when you live your life through rose-tinted spectacles, every experience becomes one including joy, laughter, friends, meetings, experiences and great memories. Having always fancied being a columnist I figured why not share my rose-tinted ramblings with anyone out there who might want to listen- and if no-ones out there, why not write them anyway - bit like a public diary - but hey I have no dirty little secrets that I'm not prepared to share....!!!!
