We left home at 8.25am and went to the pub car park. It was FREEZING [actually, probably below freezing]
Fortunately a good number of helpers came to assist [I am too short to help with gazebo erection!]
Yes the car park was incredibly slippery. Yes I did fall over – hard – but apart from a bruised hand, and general aches, seem to be OK now.
The figures I bought at the Christian Resources Exhibition back in May suddenly found a purpose in life…
Paul, Bob and others dressed up and went out to attract customers
Bob wore various outfits throughout the day – I’m not altogether sure why he is sporting his regular hat here! Paul was a very Wise Man – he had a flask of hot coffee with him!
All the ‘official’ pictures were on other cameras [mine had flat batteries and I had no spare with me] so I cannot show any of them yet. I just got one shot of Gwen being Mary
We had over twenty groups of people come in throughout the day – and others dropped by to say they were returning tomorrow with family members. Despite my utter panic at 7am [this was a mad idea, Bob, why did I suggest it? I don’t want to do this after all!] I think we have had a lovely day and I am so pleased with the results.
Tomorrow should be just as good if not better.
Now tea and a hot bath, I think.
