We are up bright and early this morning.  *yawn*

It's the first time doing the church market that we are not 'just down the road'... so we have to leave much earlier then we are used to.

Hopefully we have remembered everything.  It's not really feasible to go home to get anything we might have forgotten.

Bex and I are hoping for a good day, sales wise.
It is going to be a cracker jack hot day, it's expected to be 30 degrees, if not more.   With the Waikato's high humidity, it feels hotter than that let me assure you. 

ABOVE:  TRACY, if you decide to come down, this is where I will be.  Bex will be just down the road from me too.
And if ya do come down, please bring ya togs!  We can jump in the pool in the afternoon if you like?  I know we will be!

Right, I better go and get some face on.  First time in a week easily!  Catch ya later.
Wish us luck.


ABOVE: 8.30 and we are ready.

Well... sales are slow, but I'm still happy. I just bought a sunhat:

ABOVE: Its perfect for my hairstyle!

4.29 pm:  home from market.
Market?  Went well, much slower, and less profitable than the October Market, but it was still worth doing.

I got to see and yak with heaps of friends from Cambridge, AND...

ABOVE:  My dear friend , Tracy, from Auckland!  She came down for a yak!  So we yakked.  It was lovely.
So nice to see you Tracy.  ♥

While we were at market, Steve got busy at home...

ABOVE:  He made the 'surround' for the air con unit... and ...

 ABOVE: The clever bugger even added a little shelf ... where I can put a drink while sitting on the bench seat!
Cool!  So handy.

ABOVE: The other thing he finished off was our BAR LEANER!
It looks amazing.  I'm so happy with it. 

THANKS STEVE, you are wonderful.

We have all been in the pool since arriving home.  Such fun.

8.38 pm: And the kids have gone home, I've watered the garden, fed the fish, topped up the pond, and tended the pool (Chemicals/pump on etc).  So, the day is done.
Catch ya tomorrow.
