I realise that no-one is waiting with baited breath, but I will tell you all anyway...
The local show went very well. And yes i did get the Needlework aggregate again this year (eight years running!!). I have my eye on the knitting aggregate next year but that may be difficult; there are a couple of ladies who put in so many beautiful knitted things, I doubt I could compete with that.
So, these are the cards and ribbons:
You know, really, it is just a bit of fun, and a chance to show the world what we are capable of as we sit at home on our own and craft. And it is great to see what other people are doing. The hall always looks so nice when everything is set out after judging.
My two boys were stewards again this year. They both worked very hard and did a marvellous job. Sadly my youngest then spent the next 24 hours with shocking gastro, where he couldn't even keep water down, the poor little kid. (okay he is 14 but he is still little, and will always be little to me). He seems to be almost fully recovered now but it was an awful two days. I am assuming (with absolutely no proof I admit) that it is the lunch we had on the Show day. He had fish, the rest of us had chicken. And while i love living where I do, having the nearest hospital an hour away is not an ideal situation. I was about to take him in to the Children's when hubby suggested Nurse-on-call who were great and gave us suggestions about his management, all of which seemed to work. Thank goodness for this valuable service.
All's well that ends well.
Speaking of all being well, my eldest had a great two days away lasy week doing driver ed. And has spent the rest of the week pointing out when I don't indicate for long enough, or hold the steering wheel correctly. Sigh, it is going to be a long two years!! At least once he actually gets his L plates, I will be able to pay him back (insert evil laugh!!)
