Himself does not do craft fairs and disappeared off to Kent for a party. So I took myself off to stay with my parents and be fed to within a very inch of my existence by my Mother. Seriously my poor stomach, I don't think I will ever feel hungry again ever!
The craft fair was as huge and as good as ever. I spent some but not all of my pennies (every Friday I put £1 aside for Stonor and any I don't spend goes back into the fund for the next year)
You may recall last year I bought an iron warthog for my garden, Nephew Number One named him Pumba after the one in 'The Lion King'. Well it now seems that Pumba is actually a she not a he.
I also fell in love with this bracelet. It's very kitsch which is very me, so I tried it on and refused to take it off! (I did pay for it)
Other than that I bought this bird and flower jug and ceramic hanging cat.
The show ground and indeed Stonor Park itself is in a dip in the Chiltern Hills so you can get some amazing skies as weather fronts move in and boy was one moving in. Inevitably It went from this dramatic sky
None of us had coats so after half an hour of sheltering and no let up we decided to call it a day and head for the car. Much nicer to sit inside with a big mug of tea with welsh cakes and fresh strawberries whilst the storm raged thunder and lightening outside.
I got home to a package. A bag I won on Ebay for the princely sum of £3.73 including postage. I can't even remember how I came across it but I just loved it. I did have that panic after I won it that it was going to arrive and be hideous, you know beads, sequins etc and I'm sure some people here will think it is hideous but I like it.
I shall finish up with my epic shoe fail. I am looking for two things right now. A pair of black ballet type pumps for work and a new pair of black riding style boots after my beloved pair fell to bits on my feet, literally. *weeps*
I saw that Office had a sale on (you know where this is going don't you?) I went on the website to have a look, and I did find a pair of boots I liked, but sadly they were sold out. Instead I somehow ended up with these......
Hibiscus pattern Converse, cherries, anchors what's not to like?
Full price they would have cost me £186 (I love working out what I would have spent if I had paid full price) but I have still spent £50 that was meant to be for winter boots on frivolous shoes so that is a fail on my part.
