It's been a while since my last blog post. No particular reason just been very busy at work and it's been too hot to spend any length of time on the computer -I know, I know - that's no excuse! Anyway since my last update there's been selling at Saddleworth Show, a work's night out and a nice walk.
Saddleworth Show was an amazing event once again. We did this last year, and the sun shone and there was record attendance. When we got the booking form at the end of last year we immediately booked our stalls for this year. The weather forecast wasn't great but the sun shone for us in the morning and then there was torrential rain in the afternoon which meant the event ended an hour early. Takings were still good considering the bad weather, not as good as last year but still worth going. I would recommend this event to any craft sellers out there.

I went on a work's night out in Manchester's Northern Quarter the other week which was a great success. Free bar and free food - result! There was a great turn out, no surprise, and everyone had fun - some more than others! I got home around 4am which is very late for me (usually in bed at 10pm!) It took me all of the next day to recover - and I swore, as I always do, to never drink again! I lasted until the following day!!
Walking has been somewhat minimal due to the weather being so hot. Last weekend we drove over to Ashford-in-the-Water which is a beautiful little village just outside Bakewell. The walk took us up to Monsal Head, which is a famous beauty spot with a magnificent view down Monsal Dale and up the Wye valley, then across the viaduct over the river. It was about 5.5 miles and took around 3.5 hours. The weather was perfect for walking but sadly we made it back to the village just after the pub had closed!
So there we are - not much has happened really! July appears to be a busier month socially as we celebrate out 2nd Wedding Anniversary and we have friends visiting from the South....watch this space!
