Gosh I am shattered

Most days I don't think about how old I am, I'm just me at an eternal age of here and now, no definate number just young at heart if abit wrinkly and flabby on the outside. Then there are other days like yesterday and today when I feel old, in fact older than I probably am. My body aches in strange places and I wonder what on earth I'll be like when I'm even older. When I'm fifty will I still be able to bend down and tie my shoe laces? Not that I have shoelaces not since I left school which was ? decades ago!
I got home from the craft fair yesterday absolutely shattered, in fact so tired that I just curled up on the sofa with Daisy and had an hours sleep, (when your young you'd call it a power nap lol). Then an early night, slept for 10 hours straight and woke up STILL SHATTERED! Explain how does that work? 
We were supposed to be going for awalk round Greater Cumbrae (a small island) and then a picnic with a group of friends today but at least the weather has taken pity on me. We had a horrendous thunder storm during the night and it's been pouring with rain since before I woke, so yipee I get to curl up in front of the telly instead of un neccessary exercise!!!
Right that's quite enough of me rambling on, yesterday was the craft fair at Troon. I tend to get abit anxious before hand as I'm never certain whether people will like what I make. I think I actually care more what other crafters think than the visitors/customers to the fair. Well I got lots of lovely comments and sold a reasonable amount inc 2 bags and a cushion (loads of little bits). I even got an order for a customised bag from one of the other crafters which was lovely.
Couple of pics of my stall...

Will be updating my etsy later today with extras I'd made for the fair inc the teacup pincushions.
Right off to stick feet up in front of telly with big mug of coffee and maybe have one of those power nap thingies!!

Happy Sunday!!

Hey Pene, glad to read you had a good time at the craft fair and were happy with your sales..........

Your stall looks great with some lovely makes on it.

Know what you mean about the aches and pains in strange places, we must be about the same age.........

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

Claire :}

Your stall looks great, Pene! Really lovely. I'm thinking of doing some but am going to have a look around first. I may be coming to you for tips. xx

Your stall looks fabulous, if there was any justice in this world you'd have sold out.

Regarding your tiredness, I believe it's your body's way of telling you to slow down, so take note! xx
