Thank you Sarah of Top Toy Box for your guest post on Friday - lovely ideas for the long summer break from school that is looming and as the weather is likely to be pretty unreliable, these may help lots of people who want some fun crafty things to do with their children. Would you like to be a guest blogger here? I would love you to join in, so get in touch if you would like some more information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We were supposed to be attending an open air event at Farnham Castle yesterday, but had to cancel our plans. The friend whose birthday we were celebrating sprained her ankle and this meant walking through the mud would be rather difficult. Not that we wish her anything other than a speedy recovery, but we were not too disappointed. As you may know, the UK has had quite a bit of rain recently (British understatement) and the prospect of sitting in mud while being rained on was not something we were mad keen to do. However, we had a meal with our friend yesterday evening - in the dry. I tried to sell the tickets on Twitter and Facebook without any success - now who would not want to sit in a muddy field?? But, never to be put off, a friend of mine organised a French Flea Market yesterday to raise funds for her church (yesterday was Bastille Day). She asked me if I would like a table for my cards and as it was only a few miles away and a very reasonable stall price, I agreed. The organisers were disappointed with the turnout, but given the weather I think they did very well - and so did I! It is amazing how you can do well in the least likely of places. I donated the tickets to the raffle and they were won by a really nice couple on the table next to me who have just started an up-cycling/re-cycling furniture business, so I was pleased the tickets went to a good home.
