The wonderer returns... with lots of vampire photos :D

Hello My beautiful Blogland

Okay soooo I maybe didn't wonder that far, only a an hour and half up north but I most certainly did come back with a lot of vampire photos and by that I mean the actors who play vampires :D. 

It was the most amazing weekend! It's hard to put down in words why I enjoyed it so much because I know some people reading this will think OMG why is she so excited about meeting a few people who play some vampires? Well I'll try and get across why as I explain the weekend. 

We got there on Friday after checking into the hotel we met up with some of our con chummies who we had met last year and had a good old catch up. Then we went and registered and that actually has to be the smoothest registration I've ever had, people followed the times they were meant to register and it just meant we didn't have to queue for too long, the reason I say this is because last year nobody seemed to follow the time they were meant to go register and it was just really manic whereas this year it just seemed far more relaxed and easy. We then got to go buy some of the photos and autos which weren't included in our upgrade and that has to be least I've ever spent when getting to a convention as well LOL it was all going far to well at this point. I then got to chat to some more con chummies who were actually helping out and working it and that was good because as a whole we only ever get to chat on Facebook and twitter and all that type of stuff so it's always good to see people in person :D. 

After all this me and Megan went up to our room and unfortunately this is where the smooth sailing ended that day for me LOL. I could feel that my stomach was wet and there was only one reason for it, my Line had cracked. Now earlier on that morning I had attempted to change my BDQ connector, now every week this seems to get harder and harder it jut never wants to come off. So me and my mum has tried to get it off and I think because I had been trying so hard I accidentally reversed the pressure in my line so once again blood decided to come out of my line again, we didn't panic this time though we just just attached the new line and drugs and we decided to leave the BDQ connector till monday because I'd asked my doctor what I should do in that type of situation when I was in hospital and she said not to let it interfere with my life, so I didn't. So having not achieved getting the BDQ connector off and having a lovely bloody lap I thought that was my bad luck for the weekend. But when we found out that the BDQ connector was actually cracked we had to call the paramedics to the hotel because me and Meg couldn't get it off again! The Paramedic were SO lovely and were just chatting away to us and the bloke got it off in about 2 seconds (typical lol) and then after that we just sat and chatted about my condition and lots of stuff while I did my meds and they did my obs and they were asking lots of questions but they were really pleased that it was something simple to sort out and nothing overly complicated and they left enlightened about my condition which always gives me a happy feeling. 

After that lovely mishap Saturday could come :D. 

Saturday was what I can only describe as a blur so much stuff to and I have to say Rogue (who run the event) were amazing I got access which means you can go first in your group because I obviously can't stand for too long and I had my oxygen with me sometimes and by having that it really meant I could enjoy the weekend without worrying about feeling awful at the end of it. But props to my sister she pushed me around all weekend and that is no mean feet. 

We got through almost all our photos on the first day which meant that Sunday could be more relaxed and we could enjoy the stage talks, we did however have to get up at 2:30am to get a Nate coffee lounge (a talk with about 25 other people talking to the actor) which although tiring was totally worth it because Nate is what I can only call inspiring, he truly and passionately believes in what he talks about and after you've listened to him talk it just makes you want to be a better person because of it. I think Ian also has the same affect because he also  really just wants to make the world a better place, these guys really do just make you want to help the world and do good things with your life. 

I was a extremely lucky girl as well because I get to talk to Nate quite a bit on twitter because last year we met and he found out about my  condition etc. and asked to be kept up-to-date and stuff and before they started Nate's photos he asked if we could chat for bit, which we did for about 10 mins just catching up and then Nate gave me such a beautiful necklace which he brought from Italy for me and it is a heart with a cross in it and we both hope it will be my lucky charm this year :D. 

I think the reason I love these conventions so much is because these people not just the actors but the friends that you make while you're queuing up and waiting in the main hall for a talk to start, people you otherwise wouldn't normally have met become your friends and I really think that you gain a extra family through conventions and its hard to explain but there's an atmosphere that I've never experienced anywhere else, the excitement, the stress, the anticipation all mixed together just creates something that I've never experienced anywhere else. Even if there wasn't a big main character from a show going to the convention everyone would still have an amazing time because we all have fun together. It's so hard to explain unless you actually go to one of these things but its just soo much fun and if you are thinking about going to something like it I say DO IT!

Here are a few of my photos from the weekend I'm not gonna bombard you with all of them though because that would turn this post into a very long post but if you follow me on Facebook or twitter you'll see all of them Hope you enjoy enjoy:-
