The Gazebo arrived on Thursday and i thought I would test setting it up. Arthur came back from nursery and decided it should be a fruit stall, so out came his till all the fruit and george to be his customer.
It was great to be out on the road again, but I had really forgotton how much time you need to setup! we were right at the bottom of the garden, and I had loaded the van with hings in baskets and bags so that they could be put straight out. This was not a good plan, and 2 hours later i was still trundling things down the garden using a borrowed wheelbarrow. Then was asked to move the vehicles and that there was just 20 minutes left..which sent me into a panic attack, I just felt like sitting on the floor saying ' I can't do it' and 'there's no way i will be ready' as people started to come in, (actually that is what i did in the end, then recovered quickly as people started shopping). The next thing I knew it was 3 oclock and I had not spoken to Kate (who was next to me selling lovely vintage bits) once, nor eaten and only managed to have one cup of coffee that a lovely friend got for me.
