Stop the clock! Just got in from having supper with the crew. Hall’s all set ready for Ditton Open Day No. 1. I just have to figure out what I am doing tomorrow! My morning was interesting. Whilst the men – hunter gatherers – loaded the van, it was my job to go foraging for food – #CashnCarry. So I wrote a list of what we will need in order to make about 600 rounds of sandwiches and as many cups of tea, you know, bread, butter, milk, teabags and stuff, and duly shot off to Bookers. I quickly realised that I would need to go round twice – once for the bread, and once for the crisps!
Back in I went for the next lot… biscuits and crisps. All part of a well balanced diet.
Trouble was, car was full, but….
So had to unload the lot and repack it in the carpark. Love that. Especially when you’ve got places to go and people to see – and you’ve got a 6 hour window to set up the hall!
Scheissenhausen, I thought, do I actually have to sit here in Bookers carpark and eat all of these! Because if I do, I’m swapping them for Salt n Vinegar!
You know what they say: where there’s a willy there’s a way! And I eventually cruised off to Ditton, completely engulfed in Walkers Crisps. Haven’t got nearly enough, so will have to run by there tomorrow on the way in! Just tell me what flavour to get, and they haven’t got any Prawn Cocktail!
But how nice it was to be greeted at the Hall by Sam and Heather, who drove down from the North yesterday
It is Steve’s birthday today. He was larking about… “Had the chance to go up the Westend to see a show,” he said, “but no! I’m off to Ditton today!” Then he starts shouting GIVE ME A D D GIVE ME AN I I GIVE ME A T T, and so on. Silly arse.
And Paul must have walked a hundred miles today! No wonder there’s not a gram of fat on him!
But now everything is set to welcome our guests tomorrow and Saturday. And once I have packed my craft stuff tonight and made a little plan, I shall sleep like a lamb for sure.
Safe travels to any of you coming to visit.
Love & Hugs,
