The Weekend That Was – A Magical One

This weekend I took the entire weekend off from my books and spend it at a two day craft fair with my niece. Firstly I was very surprised I went two days without reading a book and it’s a funny feeling, but good.

I made the decision late summer to start scrapping book for the autumn, winter season and this was the first major craft fair I have been to, to stock up on paper, glue and all the other things that are involved in the paper craft hobby…

I had a wonderful time – I am now absolutely tired but so pleased with the two day event… Paper craft in the UK is definitely geared towards a certain demography and it was about 10-15 years older than I am. On the first day my niece was the only child there and the second day there was about a dozen or so kids at the fair.

I took a few photos – so see my weekend in lights as it was….

P230909_11.080002I was a beautiful day so we got the train and the bus to the event and I had to take a photo of the big read bus and the current movie coming out in the cinema this week..

Crowd control anyone – This was the queue we had to face for the two day – and there was two entrance.  believe it or not I was somewhere at the front, all these people are before me.

I hope your weekend was as good as mine – and now I am going back to my books…

You have hit the nail on the head, it was so outside of my, of late norm, and it made the difference..

I'll try not to fall in a rut again anytime soon...

Everyone is right, your niece is a little sweetheart. Glad you had a fantastic time!
