WI & The Egremont Crab Fair
I got down into Egremont just after half eight this morning. I was there in good time to help set up the WI Stall. I was able to set out my knitted stuff at one end of the table. I took quite a few bits and they all went out on the stall.
The stall was quite full and apparantly we did quite well overall! I had plenty of cake left over. It could've been sold many times over but as I went back to the house at 10.30, the other ladies didn't know whether I wanted the left over cake or was happy to have it sold. I wouldn't have minded in the least it being sold. I have texted a couple of people to see of they want cake, and some has gone around to a friends house already. Some more will be going on Monday. That which is not eaten will be frozen and may be re-homed on Wednesday or Thursday.
In the afternoon we (the three ladies discreetly hidden in the image!) had a meeting with another lady on WI business. We have come up with some exciting plans, which I must keep under wraps until draft ideas have gone to the Board of Trustees. It is something that I want to be a part of.
I am now pooped. I have been up since 5AM (as was Daddy, as was Mary-Jane). Not only has it been a very busy day, it has been a very busy week. I am looking forward to having a relaxing day tomorrow and if the weather isn't too bad, I shall take Mary-Jane out, probably to St Bees for an ice cream.
