This weekend is set to my busiest ever and I am trying to remain calm in my preparations.

Exactly whose brilliant idea it was to book a massive craft fair at a local Estate house on Friday, followed by TWO events on Saturday, overlapping by a few hours while also having to have someone man the shop I do not know... Ok, it was me....  whistle

So Dad and I are going to fair on Friday while hubby looks after shop and Mum makes more product for Sat.
On Sat me, Mum and Dad go to first event in morning while hubby minds shop again. Then at lunch we split into two groups and they go on to the next event to set up and I'll join them later. Phew.

And of course we need enough blimmin stock to be in 3 place at once!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 doh!

I feel your pain. I've got a fair in Islington on Saturday that I'm doing on my own while my OH does the stall in Piccadlly, but I don't know how I am going to get enough stock together for both of us. I am working full time (this was not the plan!!) until Christmas and Saturday week I've got a blimming great xmas fair in brick lane. 

Then I've just got to keep the Piccadilly stall fully stocked at the busiest time of year while working full time.

I just want to crawl under the bed with a bottle of gin until xmas day.  :mwaha:

I've had a slight reprieve - for the second time in a month I've had a booking cancelled because someone's NHS treatment has been cancelled. But this time I'm actually relieved! I'll still probably be working on Friday but it looks like I've got tomorrow "off" to get some packing and labelling done.

Oh for more time! I'm taking a couple of hours off now and back to the grindstone to be ready for bright and early tomorrow. Let the madness begin!

That's great you had such a good day - bet you're really pleased (pity it means you have to work more to top up your stock though)
