All is Calm!!

Despite this having been the most stressful time of my entire life - my joy now overfloweth!

My P problem was sorted to my immense joy and the immense shock of the postman who will probably never call again.  It was then a dash to The Standerwick Centre for the setting up of the GWR show.   The car was stifling so I made use of the air con which Carl has finally said can be used and agreed it does not use up more fuel than when having the windows open - something to do with air resistance - (Honest John gave me the ammunition for that one). Carl had gone on first while I waited for my P solution - most was done by the time I got there and the quality of the fleece on display is stunning - it makes my poor little fleeces look very sad!  I couldn't look closely at anything as it is all boxed up but there seem to be a startling amount of lovely greys, looking forward to seeing them.  The yarn is also fantastic - particularly impressive array of blacks and l some beautiful hand spun.  In the end I didn't get any hand spun good enough and having seen the quality I am incredibly glad I didn't enter anything - there are some fabulous hand spinners out there.  Everyone was working incredibly hard when I arrived.
We then had a phone call about another of the day's stresses and the die is now cast for further developments!  What exactly will happen next in our lives is a little unsure at the moment but a great wave of relief has settled over us and the future looks - - - interesting!  Now I must sort out extra water for the animals for tomorrow as they almost ran out today with the searing hat, find clothes for the show and then relax!
