So weigh in for yesterday was 83.6kg, a loss of 0.6kg. Ok I guess but I was reeeeally careful with what I ate and exercised like a mad woman. I feel a bit like one of those contestants on TBL, crying because I only lost 5kg.
Back to the important things, ie the fete. I was running the Made in Merri stall, everything handmade (we are not too fussy about the in Merri bit).
Me and a bunny (sold out)
It was a perfect day and people had money to burn. Maybe it was the weather, maybe the stimulus package, maybe the fantastic bargains that were too good to pass by.
We managed to raise $2400, a massive jump on the $800 we made last year. The bar has definitely been raised.
Most of our stuff was made by a group of Mums, a very small group unfortunately. There is Astrid, she says she can't sew but she can cut, stuff, fill, price and glue like no other. Justine the bunting queen who is responsible for the outstandingly fabulous Made in Merri sign, miles of beautiful bunting and lots of frogs. Gina made some very special bunnies and inspired some ideas. Teresa was responsible for the felt christmas decorations

We sold most of our stock and took a few orders so now we have to start restocking the cupboards for next year.
I think maybe I will wait a few days.
The rest of the fete was a bit of a blur, but one thing I was not going to miss was a performance by the most talented Miss Caroline's Tap Pets.
My second daughter (to be known as BP or Princess) is the one in the pink shoes.
And one more of the smallest tappers,
My third girrrl (The Moocher or Moo) is the one with the sun shining on her gold teeth
