Oh my goodness, if ever I needed sleep in a bottle it is today!
After a week in which I had a 5am start, a motorcycle accident and the regular training and gym-goings I started the weekend with a house viewing on Friday afternoon. The place was great, the location not so much - above a shop and next to a noisy busy road with a bus stop outside the window. I also flooded the bike engine by parking on a slope, so couldn't get started and had to have a push!
On Friday evening I made some tealight candles for the craft fair, unfortunately my glass jam jar gave way to the heat and the bottom fell out of it, filling the saucepan I was using as a bain-marie with a nice water and wax mess! At 9:30pm it was time to call it a day, so I left the wax to cool and float to the surface.
Chipping it off on Saturday morning was rather amusing!
So I spent Saturday morning re-melting wax and making candles. Then I rode up to Watford to pick up the van for the fair. Since I had the van rather than the bike I did a humungous shop at ASDA and loaded the van up, I wondered if it would ever fit in our tiny little house. I also stopped at the bike place to get myself some new boots. With spikes. Well ok, just some good armour! I also got a new lid with a flip chin and integral sunnies!
Saturday afternoon was spent finishing off the candles and sewing up breakfast cushions.
When everything was finished, I drove round to the house we saw on Friday to check out the noise levels at midnight. I was still in my pyjamas! I got a phone call from the DH to ask if I could pick him up from Victoria since I was already out in the van. So at 2am, we were just crashing into bed.
An early start on Sunday to set up the stall
which was a success judging by previous efforts! I am hoping to do a couple of stalls in July, one in Kilburn and one in North Finchley - a lady came round the stalls with application forms yesterday.
A friend of mine visited the stall yesterday - I haven't seen her for years and I thought we had fallen out since I kept asking and asking her to things but she always had some reason for not coming. It seems I am back in favour! I am also invited to her birthday party in a couple of weeks at Carwash on Old Street - a 70s club! Should be a riot!
