I'm a bit sewn out to be honest. Can't wait to sit on the sofa watching TV again rather than sewing every evening but really looking forward to the event (a day on my own!) and seeing all the other stalls. Will take some photos.
Its a bit of a sad day today actually as Izzy and Sam's Great Grandma died. She was nearly 92 and until recently had been living at home independently so had a good life. She was a lovely lady who was always immaculately dressed despite being blind for many years. She told me a lovely story once about giving birth during the second world war. Apparently the new mums were forbidden to get out of bed for a week after giving birth so when the air raid sirens went off the nursing staff rushed off to the air raid shelters with the babies while the mothers stayed in bed wearing a tin hat for protection. It always makes me laugh when I think about it although must have been very frightening at the time. We will miss her lots.
