Weekend things

I feel as if I have had a long weekend this week as we started on Friday. Master loulou had a training day and we hung out together, I felt like the summer hols had started. I know that in the US school hols have started but here the education system continues until the end of July after which our children get 6 weeks (give or take) How about the US schools? Do you go back in September too?


Anyway on Saturday the weather turned yuck so it must be time for the primary school summer fair!!! My friend Sara and I had a stall together. She makes and sells greetings cards and mighty talented she is too. I made things and tried to sell them but there wasn’t much doing. After I had paid for the stall I made £20. It all counts however and we had fun. I caught up with old friends and had a good gossip.

I am going to put the left over items on to my Folksy shop. Here are the close-ups I took

I have never tried this before so we will see how it goes. Fingers crossed.


  1. Yep...most of the kids are out of school now and we do have summer hols until September 2nd or 3rd.

  2. Hi Louise

  3. Wishing you lots of luck with Folksy - I have used MISI also - I had more success with selling on there than Folksy so you may want to consider giving them a go too! xxx

  5. Oh how Gorgeous!
    Simply beautiful.
    You taking about the Summer fair reminds me of when the girls were at school.Brings back memories.....
    Yes the year has gone very quickly again.

    Have a good week, Love Suex

  6. Love your items on Folksy, I am sure they will do very well. My two youngest boys will be on the long summer holidays until very early September. Sometimes I think the summer holidays here are just a little too long!! :-)
    Have a great day!
