WELL MY ARTWORK HAS GONE - and i won't rest until i hear that it's arrived.  I don't like sending things over a weekend.
Had dinner at the pub with sam and di from the rowing club and an early night so i could get up extra early for the market day.  All my stuff is sorted.  We want an early start because it's supposed to be about 38 today.

Got up at sunrise and
while photographing
the river i saw that
the willie wagtail is
sitting on the nest
again so my little
willies might have
siblings soon.

terrible pic but that is the willie wagtail on its nest

 ANNIE'S MARKET DAY has been going for a few years, in april and november. My stall was Annie Spud's Emporium - vintage handbags, lots of jewellery, shoes, vietnamese silk and a good stock of three of my picture books.  It was a really great and busy day, the stall opposite me sold wonderful fabric handbags, 'jennifer with love' is the brand. everyone had a good day and made money.

the cafe staff were run off their feet but still managed to give all the stallholders wonderful sandwiches for lunch
this lovely lady in her long skirted indian suit just flung a couple
of scarves around her neck and bought them.  ageless style
at the end of the day we all sat down with a bottle of champagne to relax when suddenly a mini cyclone descended, rain just bucketed down with squally winds and then big hailstones pelted down on the courtyard  -  it was wild, only lasted about 10 minutes but the rain gauge showed about 30 mm.  Now i'm worried about the willie wagtails, the birds may have been injured or killed or at least the eggs may have been smashed by the hail. i'll check today
