A very tired Alison

Jessica's 18th Birthday Party went well, she looked beautiful, but she got a bit upset when a couple of boys from school got a bit drunk and were throwing food around and generally making idiots of themselves until Daddy and Granddad sorted them out (in fact sent them home) after that things settled down and everybody had a good time, we left around 10.30 as we had to get up early to attend the craft show.


So pictures well here goes:

The Sweet Table 

The Cake 

And now for the Craft Fair

Up at 5am left home around 6am got to Hatherleigh around 7.30 and was all ready for the grand opening at 9am, lovely day if not freezing as we were in the animal pens in the main hall no sunlight getting through and it was a wind tunnel but apart from that a really good day.

  1. Hi Alison, when I read about your daughters birthday party I just thought Oh for goodness sake! What on earth do young people think they are doing now-a-days (Am I as old as I sound?) how dare they go into someone's house and behave like that. I do hope it didn't spoil things for Jessica. Love all your photos, and your stand for the craft fair looked really elegant... I think that is important when you sell fine items. I understand what you mean about the cost of having a table at some fairs... I wanted to have one at Sandringham but the £100 plus I would have to fork out made it impossible.

  2. I am pleased the Jessica enjoyed her party, your photos are fabulous.
    I love the way you displayed your items at the craft fair and your banner looks wonderful. Glad you had a good day, hopefully you will get some rest tomorrow!
    hugs Sue xx

  5. TFS your wonderful lovely family with me it's nice to 'meet' then though distance apart....lovely and your crafting goodies should sell, they are gorgeous.xx

  6. Thank you for sharing all your pictures with us Alison. She did indeed look beautiful and what a gorgeous cake! When our youngest turned 18 he didn't want a party because, he said " I've seen too many friends' parties ruined by drink" . He always had an old head on young shoulders, he's 20 now and still takes care of his mates when they are worse for wear!! Have a restful day xx
