It's now 9 am, the sun is shining and I am still in my dressing gown so I must get dressed. I have just realised I have been reading blogs for the last one and a half hours!

Jane and I are going to have a pitch at an antiques fair on Sunday. Not quite in the same league as Shepton but we'll give it a go. After our disappointing effort a year ago I said 'Never again' but I have been persuaded to try a different venue. It's amazing how time consuming it is putting price tickets on everything, so back to work!

It was great to meet Sue, we bought a couple of things from her and hope to buy more when we visit her at Dairy House antiques. What was amazing was that as Jane went to ask where Sue's pitch was I said I would just look at this interesting stall only to find out it was actually hers that I had decided to look at out of all the ones there!
On Saturday I had a lovely surprise. I had won a giveaway on Kim's blog Ragged Roses and the postman delivered a big box full of goodies - Look at all this I received!
I was so touched by her generosity, such lovely things. Thankyou so much Kim.
I haven't been well this weekend. I started with an itchy rash on Friday evening which, by Saturday, had developed all over my body. Along with flu like symptoms of aching and a continuous headache all I've done the whole weekend is fall asleep on the sofa. By Sunday it was even worse and some of the rash had changed into bruise like rings which didn't disappear when pressed. You can imagine my worry so when I rang the doctor for advice they said to go along to the local hospital. Apparently it is an extreme allergic reaction or viral infection but I have now to try my third different anti-histamine and hope it goes away as quickly as it appeared.
Jane and I bought several things at Shepton to sell on our website . I did treat myself to two things, though. This is a 'Travelling Lady's Laundry Sachet'. I may use it on holiday (so much more upmarket than a plastic carrier for one's dirty smalls!!) or insert a cushion pad and display it in my bedroom.

This is a picture of Elizabeth David's kitchen from the book.
I found a packet of very out of date cranberries lurking at the back of my 'baking' cupboard at the weekend and since I hate throwing food away I threaded them onto some florist's wire and shaped them into a heart. I am rather pleased with the result!
As an afterthought.... please can someone tell me how to make my photos 'enlargeable' and why does the font change size on my posts? I would appreciate some advice. Thankyou.
