Today started bad and then got worse! When my alarm went off at 7.30 i felt like i'd only been asleep for an hour. After driving for an hour to get to the craft fair (in the snow and gale force winds) we got there late.
The morning was slow and i only sold a couple of little headbands, the afternoon was slower! It was nice to spend the day with my mum (again). We had a natter and i got a bit more of my knitting done too. I also found out about the Cumbria Steam Gathering that happens in July. A lovely man o one of the stalls told me about it - its £50.00 for a pitch for two days. I am definatley doing it!
Martin's little (nearly 18) brother is also coming to stay with us for...well i'm not exactly sure how long. He is not coping too well at home and there is the mutual feeling that both him and his mum need a break from each other. This will not be the first time we have him staying with us, he lived with us for a few months at the beginning of the year during which time he stayed in bed all day, didn't turn up to work and generally was idle. Hopefully this time will be different and to be fair on him he seems to have grown up ALOT over this past year - i actually enjoy his company now!
We'll just have to see how it goes, and if i can cope with having someone staying in my office/craft room! He only asked if he could come this morning and he already has a job interview lined up for tomorrow so fingers crossed.
As the craft fair was in Penrith we were already 45 minutes nearer home so it only took just under an hour to travel home. I have madly rushed around trying to clear a space for him to fit among all of my craft supplies and Martins new Xbox chair so now the living room and our bedroom looks like a tiny and much messier version of HobbyCraft!
Oh i did manage to pick up a little bargain in the form of these lovely sparkles from the fair....
...arn't they pretty!
