Sales & Celebrations

Good evening

Well today was the final day of the half-term and true to form the weather was awful, cold, wet & grey. I think I was the only member of the household to brave outside today - well someone needed to do the post run and get a few baking supplies from town.

How was your weekend??

Thanks to all those who asked about the fair @ the weekend. My verdict?? Brilliant :) Loads of sales, chatting to some lovely people accompanied by some great music and food :)

The proceeds are being put towards taking MrVV away for a weekend next month ;)

Despite it being a soggy day the supporters of the fair, families and holidaymakers turned up in their droves. The hall was packed from just before opening time and was still heaving when the stalls packed away at 5.30 and I believe it was busy in the evening too with more musical entertainment and dancing (next year I shall be staying for that bit too).

Of course - you want pictures don't you - only a few, I was just too busy to take many;

Me behind by stall - not sure I was quite awake at that point!!

This was my sisters stall - they both ducked down behind the table - wimps !!

Just one of the many great musical acts during the daytime - this band were called Twisted Routes - they were fab - made your feet dance :)

I didn't really venture very far from my table all day so I only managed to buy one item - from the lady who's stall was next to me. She made the most wonderful cards - all using photos she'd taken. I spotted this one at the beginning of the day and had to treat myself to it;

I need to now look out for the perfect frame in the charity shops AND hope I spot this lady again at another event - I wish I'd bought more of her cards.

Sunday was a family day - it was MIL's birthday and we knew it was going to be a tricky one for her. We decided to take her out to lunch at somewhere we'd never have been able to persuade FIL to go!! Just our local Prezzo - something there for everyone. The boys munched their way through huge pizza's, whilst the rest of us had different pasta dishes.  Back home just in time to watch the rugby!!

I picked up a couple of potentially promising leads on Saturday so I'd best be off to email them and then have a long tour of blogland - I am seriously behind with my reading and commenting.

See you soon
