 It's 6 am and I'm about to get up and check out the weather.

If it's not pissing down with rain... we will be off to market.

So... I better go and check.


Cos I'm either going to be in the car off to market, or back in bed.

Either way, you won't hear from me again for a couple of hours.  😂😊😏

ABOVE: Well... we have braved it.
There was conflicting weather reports, but as it wasn't raining when we got up we decided to go.

ABOVE: All ready with an hour until the official start.
It's very cloudy and feels like it could rain anytime, so we are crossing everything. 

11.50 am. And WOW! We are doing very well at this market. Most unexpected. 

OMG... thank goodness we went to this market!!!!
It was our BEST EVER MARKET for sales.
I actually started feeling worried about how many runners we were selling, and how many I'd have to make to re-stock!

I'm going to be a very busy girl over the next few weeks, that's for sure.

We are now home, and have unpacked the car.  Stew has gone down to the supermarket to get some yogurt and fruit, as we have decided to sometimes have a fruit smoothie for our dinner.

Most days Stew and I have our main meal at lunchtime, so something like a smoothie at dinner time will be a good choice.

I had a little fall as we were packing up at market, so am going to take it easy for the remainder of the day.  Got a sore side/back and knees.  

Why, when you fall over in public, do you feel like a right twat?  And lie there wondering just HOW MANY people saw you fall over and look like a sack of spuds on the ground!  😂😅😆

6.41 pm:  So tired!  Stew and I are heading off to bed early tonight... probably around 9.
Should sleep like logs.
Right now we are just relaxing after dinner.
Catch ya tomorrow.


  1. I hope the weather is nice so you can go to market.

  2. I hope you get to go to your market after all your hard work making stock ... and that it is a successful day 🌷
