A Really Lovely Day

What a great day we had, we talked and laughed all the way to Nottingham.
, We were a little early so we walked around the shops and Kathleen was thrilled because she bought the biggest mushroom you have ever seen and was salivating at the thought of her breakfast on Sunday, it was the size of a side plate. I then took Kathleen to the venue of my daughters wedding reception and we sat in the courtyard and had a lovely pot of fresh coffee and listened to the tinkle of water as it left the fish statue mouth and fell into the pond, it is a lovely place called The Country Cottage, Ruddington, Nottingham the hanging baskets were huge and still very colourful. Then it was time to get the show on the road so off we went to St Peters Church Rooms and set up our stall, there were just five stalls and the rest of the hall was taken up with tables for four with vintage crockery and the most amazing selection of vintage cups and saucers to drink your tea from and more cakes than I have ever seen in one place all donated by friends, mothers, aunts, everybody. We were pleased with the selection we had on our stall and our items sold very well Kathleen sold one of her quilts and we both sold cushions and bags and lots of small items too, we made a good amount of money for the charity and for ourselves as well to cover the cost of the fabric and so on. My daughters friend Laura and her small band played lovely music all afternoon Laura has a lovely voice and I think the sound of the music brought the people in from outside. My daughter phoned me last night to say that the money raised came to £500 and that this will be matched by my daughters employers (Boots Chemists) so the Ovarian Cancer charity will get £1.000. Kate is a Jnr buyer at Boots head office in Beeston Nottingham. I am really proud of my daughter and her friend Jills achievement, Well Done you two!!!

I would just like to thank one of our bloggers "Margarets Ramblings" for coming along it was lovely to meet her and she supported us well.
