Aren't People Horrid?!

Just a quick one, it's been a long, long day at the fair, I arrived just after nine (took an age to get there after defrosting the car and driving slowly on slippy roads in a strange car but that's another story) and didn't leave until nearly six.

I managed to break the glass lining in my thermos (we've had it longer than we've had children and it's been on many a jolly jaunt on the motorbike so I was gutted) so no coffee for me but luckily I was on the stall next door to the wonderful Sarah of Elegance Jewellery and she very kindly shared her flask of hot chocolate with me :-)

Then later in the afternoon Mr and Mrs Swirly came to say hello and brought along two small swirls, I was very pleased to see them!!

It was very cold and I didn't take my coat off all day and my feet are only just beginning to thaw!

But just before the end of the day I realised that some of my hotties had gone to new homes but had not been paid for! I feel awful, I wanted to cry and then wanted to shout at people and find who could do such a terrible thing!! There were a couple of girls who kept coming back and instinctively I didn't trust them (that's the cynic in me) and kept my beady eye on them as they handled all my clips and little things but missed them (or someone else) nicking the hotties!

And just to end on a nice note. A couple came by and spent ages chatting and asking questions and generally being very nice but left without buying anything (typical, three P's I thought) but she came back later and bought a 'little bottle of love' for his Christmas stocking and then a bit later he came back and bought a heart shaped brooch for her, ah! Romance, as they say, is not dead!

Oh no - what a horrid thing to happen. It wasn't Tara although she was eyeing up one of your chicken hotties :)

B'stards. No realy- how dare they. I do believe in Karma though so maybe Santa will bring them coal- I do hope so! Good work at keeping at it, even without coffee!

That is awful. Ditto JennyFlower - hope Santa not only brings them coal but a pressie from the reindeer.....

Well done for keeping going, hope this doesn't put you off. Can't believe what some people will do.
