What a week! I was invited to have a stall at Matfen Hall Gift Fair last mon/tuesday at rather late notice, and thought it would be a good idea. I also did it last year, it was good fun, and a nice crowd of people came along to do a bit of Christmas shopping. At the time I had imagined the date would be 26/27 October, NOT 2/3 November..I was already signed up for the Living North Christmas fair, which runs 5,6,7,8 Nov.
I really had barely enough time to get to the fair every day, eat supper, catch up with all the work I had missed each day, sleep, get up again before 7 each day etc etc.
Now we are in a panic about our own christmas weekends, which are very busy usually, and I pride myself on my homemade mince pies and mulled wine, until it comes to making about 600 of them We also make our own mincemeat.
If anyone would like to do some baking, just email me on email@example.com
