Yesterday we spent the day at Widecombe fair, the day started very early in typical Widecombe fair Dartmoor drizzle. We loaded Lenny, Murphy, Merlin and Logan into the trailer and set off for the fair ground. There is a one way system around the lanes on fair day so we need to get to Widecombe before this came into play. Once set up we were surrounded by crowds for most of the day, lots of questions and the usual "they spit don't they" comments. Our knitwear, yarns and socks proved very popular and we had the most successful day to so far. We didn't have time to leave the stand apart form quick dashes to the refreshment tent for supplies. So we missed the Pantomime horse derby, Bale tossing and large straw bale rolling competitions. I did manage to catch a glimpse of the Grandsons in the Hill Pony Display though, Josh had a hugh grin on his face all through it and Charlie fell of twice but got back on his pony to a round of applause from the crowd.
As usual I forgot to take the camera, so no pictures again!
Today it was back to the day job
Thought I would share a few pictures of what we call work.

Sometimes we have to remind ourselves we are at work!
