Sales and Sushi!

I feel as if I've been away for ages again but I'm pleased to report that the first of the craft fair events was a resounding success! The Well-Being and Gift Fair was held to support the Canine Partners charity and over £700 was raised in total.  My wee stall did not too badly; in fact my stock is now somewhat depleted but I'm not complaining!!

The wee snowman with the hollow tummy was "borrowed" from the Christmas decorations box at work but I think he held my matchbook notepads quite efficiently!  

I was helped on the day by my long-suffering Dad, and supported by my friend Angela and of course Himself.  I'm always filled with nervous energy for the duration of these events which means I'm shattered afterwards but it's so worth it!!

We were even given a wee demo, by a gorgeous pup called Kelty, of some of the things the assistance dogs can do for their owners.  It was amazing and brought a tear to my eye (I'm so soppy when it comes to animals!!).  Elsewhere the tombola was a big draw and it seemed that Himself and Angela won half the contents of the table!! And the home baking at the coffee and tea area was just yummsville!

I was too tired to cook when we got home so it was chips for tea, tut tut.  Well, never mind, we'd been out the night before, partaking of sushi so at least one meal this weekend was vaguely healthy! (Well apart from the deep-fried tofu rolls!!!)
