Oh the joy of an extra day in the month!! Happy Birthday to those celebrating today - amazing how many 5 and 6 year olds are allowed to drive ;)
Time to recap on the Greenpeace Fair at the weekend - if I leave it any longer it will be next weekend!
An early start was needed - the car needed loading and the picnic basket packing!
Theres' that moment when all the boxes/bags are in the hall and you look at it and think OMG where's it all going to go. Luckily we had 2 big tables between us 4 sisters (only 2 of us manning the stall though). Decided the easiest way was to keep our stuff together in sections.
It was a lovely day - we were seated near a friend and it was a good day for catching up, nattering and people watching. I looked up at one point and saw a man whose face was familiar. It took me a moment or two to realise who he was - a teacher from school who was instrumental in getting MrVV & I together as a couple. We'd not seen each other for many many years - last time big son was toddler and little son just a large stomach bump so there was plenty of catching up to do.
As well as chatting etc, there was music all day - some excellent folk music - from all ages. This group was made up of young children from about aged 9 to 13 - they were amazing. All played several instruments and their sound was brilliant;
It was a long day and come 5.30 we were more than happy to pack up and head home. The important task of cashing up for our stall was left to me and everyone was happy with their takings for the day.
I've spent mine already!! I've booked day tickets for a new local music festival in August;
The link is here - Folkeast 2012 - it looks a promising event - the music line up is excellent. We're just going on the Saturday but if its good then I think another year we might do the whole weekend.
One final thing as its the end of the month - a mosaic for February - what a mixed month - snow and spring sunshine with some hearts and more cake thrown in for good measure!!
See you soon for the best month of the year!!
