WEEKEND ANTCS; LEGOLAND & A CRAFT FAIR

Ok so the craft fair has been and done, and boy was it a wet one. I mean come on! It just didn’t stop. Where we had our stall, was a popular fair that normally attracts 1000’s, this one attracted more like a couple of hundred. We made a few sales at the start when the weather was nice, but once the down pour started, the place became empty, and most crafter’s left. We were lucky we sold just enough to cover our costs, and managed to barter some sausages too in exchange for a meat rub we did, but after talking to a few other stalls most had only sold 1 or 2 and a handful nothing. It’s such a shame when you think about how much work goes into to big shows like the one yesterday, and the effort of all the crafters. Anyway it’s always a learning curve I guess!

Craft-Show

 

So there’s our little store, so colourful right? I have to say I was pretty proud of it, as the last two weeks, I’ve hardly slept. But I was proud of the outcome. Was just a shame it wasn’t that busy.

Craft-Stalls

Just a few things we were selling, like the colourful chalkboards and wine racks. Plus my watermelon nesting table….

Lavender-syrup

And here are the god awful cakes I made as free samples for the lavender syrup..recipe to come soon. Hopefully you can make them better then me…

On another note we did go to Legoland, and we did have a blast in the Star Wars bit, but alas I didn’t have memory card in my camera, for the first like billion pictures I took, I know I have a degree in Photography..but anyway I managed to get a few of the mini land, which is super impressive.

 

So I took so many pictures of all the places like Denmark, France and USA, but I thought I’d share with you some UK ones.

London-Eye

Ok so the London scene was truly incredible. The time and money to make this must be insane, with the moving buses, and all the spot on details.. just look at the London eye..

Prine-georges-birthday

The scene at the back of Buckingham Palace. Prince Georges 1st birthday party, how awesome do the balloons look. As we know, Legoland did a big thing for the Royal Wedding when that happened too!

Superman-lego

So it was pretty fun to find random figures within the scene. So for USA they had NASA, and hidden away near the space shuttle was Yoda… my inner Star Wars geek loved this. But here we have Superman in a phone box amidst the London scene…

Trafalgar-sqaure

Here we can see the iconic London red bus travelling down Trafalgar Square and the iconic blue rooster…I mean the detail is just incredible. How cool would it be if this was your job…

 

 

Anyway bar the fact it was just me and Richard and we waited for hours on end for silly rides like learn how to drive a boat…it was a fun day out, ending with a small fortune being spent in the gift shop!

 

Hope you all had a good weekend!



HOME COMFORTS, LEGO, TWINS & FAMILY TIME

So I am finally over the dreaded bug. The plus outcome, I have finally lost a stone now..

Moving on. I have been back in my home town this weekend, it’s nice coming home to family, my old room, friends and home cooked food. Did a bit of shopping with  the mother, pictures to come one day, and even got Richard a few things too!

But best of all I got to spend some time with my nieces. Now below we have Amelia, I was unsuccessful at being able to get a picture of Eliza, she was just to quick for me. There little bow clips were the cutest though with my little ponies print on. It occured to me that this will be the thrid time this year that I have seen my family, living across the country can be quite difficult but we have fun when we go back.

But here’s a quick picture of the both of them with my dad, (Bampi to them) We are totally in the age of technology, as they were sat on his lap watching nursery rhymes being sung on You Tube on his Mac.
