I got the candy...

...that I won on Elin's blog. I can only say that the picture does not do it justice. A gorgeous gift bag with a cute little nut mouse attached, chocolates and some beautiful crochet flowers. Thank you Elin. I will certainly treasure it. I've taken a quick pic (before I eat all the choccies!) but the quality isn't too good.

Collecting my candy was about the only good thing that happened today. I got up at the crack of dawn...well...7.30...very early for me. Took myself off in the freezing fog to meet son and DIL armed with cards for the Christmas fayre. What a complete waste of time. Just 7 tables and 2 of those selling tatty second-hand goods, one lady face painting, another with cookies for the kids to decorate, one selling balloons, pencils, sweets etc. and another with second hand jigsaws and toys. It was not advertised except for a small poster pinned to the outside notice board. There was a Santa but he was upstairs with the refreshments, and he went home early. It was a thoroughly miserable turnout. We thought that more people would turn up as the sun came out and cleared the fog. No go. The weather turned again on my way home and I still haven't been able to get warm. So I'm cold, tired and fed up.

Well done, Sue. You deserve to win it. That gift bag is worth it even without the bits and pieces.
Thanks for popping over to my blog and leaving such nice coments.
