Today Tom recieved his GCSE results which give him the final confirmation that we will be taking the journey in two Sunday's time to deposit him at Sparsholt College, Hampshire, for him to start his course in game & wildlife management, he will be one of the youngest, however he has always had an independant streak and is perfectly capable (just bone idle), although I do not know who will serve him when he shouts "can I have a Ribena" (no please)! When it comes to the fine art of working a washing machine, I have no doubt that he will sweet talk some poor unsuspecting young lady into doing it for him! Oh and there is the hope that he will remember to get up for his meals, as Tom would rather be doing anything than wasting time eating!
I am both sad and happy, but I know that Tom is not the sort of lad to be sat in a stuffy 6th form and that he will excel at the hands on!
For me, hopefully another chapter to my life will open up after a visit to Devon on Thursday (more of that if it happens), but after a trip down past Taunton we will hopefully make it to the sea (Lynton/Lynmouth area) and then back towards Lizzie's (http://www.thewasherwoman.blogspot.com) for her open house sale.
The weatherwoman on the BBC says torrential rain storms & then she doesn't, so we will be packing the car with waterproofs etc, layers are the best way to go as it is still so warm, even though I have already started to wear my thick winter boots. Flo may even take her coat (she's hoping to get a run on the moors).
I will be taking the new camera and hope to be able to use it!

Oooh yes, Honiton textile & decorative Fair, my first attempt and I am lucky enough to have been given a stall at the October 5th event and have also been asked to the November 27th Bridport rag market, I would like to say that it was my sparkling personality, however I think that perhaps it was my quirky stall?!
I met some very nice textile ladies & some lovely customers, hello to any new bloggers/followers.
A great day although I got totally soaked and looked like a drowned rat!!!!!! :-)
