And so It Begins, Sasha Festival 2017

Wednesday night and Ida, Pierot and their bunny were settling down for the night.

Ida confides in Pierot that she is a bit nervous about meeting her American cousins, so Pierot reassures her with a cuddle and leaves her to read Bunny a bed time story.

Lights out I say and Ida asks, “Do I really have to wear this hairnet”, of course dear you need to look your best for tomorrow.

Up bright and early Thursday morning, but as registration wasn’t until the afternoon, Dawn, Gayle, myself and a bunch of lovely ladies took off to Washington Dulles town centre.

Next it was off to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch and of course the famous cheesecake, which we all enjoyed.
