I'm still here...


Sorry I've been very absent the last week or so, no blogging from me or time to read other blogs.  I hsve been aware that my posts have been very gloom and doom, but unfortunately it has been a very true reflection of what has been going on just lately.

My dad had to go into hospital last week and as is often the case these days he didn't have his op in the town we live in and as my mum is not a confident driver I've been  ferrying back and forth to see him.  The good news is he is now home but struggling after a 7 1/2 hour op.  I'm hoping that's the last of the stressful things happening for a while and with that in mind... on to happier things.


I thought you might want to see where I visited today - a very pretty Suffolk village, Bildeston.   I was at a Christmas fair at the very aptly named Christmas Hall.  I would have taken more photos but unfortunately my camera battery gave up the ghost, such a shame because the house was beautiful and really made me feel Christmassy

Sorry photo not very good of my stand, I wanted to see how it looked with my new Christmas lights.  And yes, of course I sampled the cake!






Hope you have a good week everybody x

    1. Thanks Jessica. No, roof is temporarily covered and we still have scaffolding up... pesky insurance companies and loss adjusters! Had 3 sales this weekend though, all good fun and sold loads, need to restock now, but am exhausted!! x

  5. Your stand looks lovely. I'm going to my first fair on Wednesday evening, very nervous and worrying I won't have everything ready in time. Hope your dad continues to improve. juliex
