  • got wind!!

    I guess I knew last night when I looked online at the weather forcast and saw 35mph gusts that I might not be going to the christmas farmers market. I woke up several times last night to the sound of a howling gale and rubbish blowing along the road. 6am this morning the alarm woke me and I got up and looked out the window to see the trees bending in the wind. The rain was horizontal and I had to admit that it was stupid to even attempt to set up my satll at the christmas farmers market.
    I'm seriously peed off. but there is no way my stock would have stayed put and I'd be constantly scrabbling in the mud for this and that. I'm so glad that other than the christmas spiders, there was nothing specifically made for christmas. The spiders can be recycled into pendants so it's not a huge loss. The down side is that the Christmas market is normally a really good spending market with people buying presents for teachers etc. Still I guess the teachers at south Cave school need a break from receiving my jewellery from evry child in the school (wild exaduration there!)
    So what to do with my now empty day?
    Eden is going to a dance rehersal, Ollie has already gone to orchestra practice.
    Think I may send Joe up into the loft to get the Christmas tree out and so I need to do a big clean and tidy. I also need to empty all the market boxes.

      It howled down the chimmney! And it's still tippin' it down

      I'm meant to be going skiing today! Yuk

      I'm sorry you couldn't do your stall, there'll be other times, and I'm sure with Christmas around the corner you have plenty of other things to do

        drove past this morning. Looked beautiful with lights on all the stalls. I don't think I was the only stall holder missing though.
        Fair turn out of people for the horrendous cold raining and winsy weather!

              What a blooming shame - mind you it was not what I was expecting you talk about when I looked at your heading hee hee

              Weather was really bad here as well last night but all seems to be calm now (although horrid, wet and grey).

              Shame about you not being able to put up stall buy hey, look on the bright side and see just what you can get done today - as in christmas tree.. yaaa

                Sorry about your wind!!! Seriously though, what a shame after the preparation, but no point getting blown away with all your stock. Have a good day anyway.

                              what a shame BDD, do you get your money back if its something like weather stopping you going. Hope you sell your christmas spiders at another market before the big day.
