I'm Back

Sorry for not being around for sooooo long. I have been so busy with uni stuff and with my role as the pavilion steward for the Clermont Show.

The Show was held last week, and was a resounding success with a record number of people through the gates. Tuesday was wet and miserable, but didn't stop the people, and Wednesday was a gorgeous sunny clear day which really tempted a lot of people to come to the Show. Our family did well with scrapping, photographs, birds and plants. The setting up is a BIG job, with 5 full on days on 12 -15 hrs a day on concrete and climbing up ladders etc. But it was all worth it - the pavilion looked fantastic! A lot of the sections had a big increase in entries. There was great teamwork amongst the lovely and dedicated helpers. However, I was utterly exhausted by the end of it all, and am happy it is over for another year.

When I work out how to download my photos off my phone onto the computer, I'll upload some photos of the pavilion.

As part of my uni studies I also had to help to organise the Under 8's Day for the School. It was held on Friday 28 May and was very successful. All of the kids and parents had a great time, with activities including goop, play dough, painting, face painting, bubble blowing, dancing, listening to a book, obstacle course and phyisical activities as well as a visit by the ambulance.
Lots of fun stuff to do.
