Off to the Market


The car is all packed and I'm ready to go for tomorrow....

I'm all set for a day full of nostalgia.

When I was a little kiddie, we spent lots of time at saleyards in country Victoria. We mainly went to horse sales, but also the odd sheep or cattle sale too.

In the olden days before the freeways were built, we would drive past the Newmarket Saleyards every time we took a trip to Melbourne.

I had a little bit of play with my new stall set up on the kitchen bench yesterday, using an Ikea shelf that Cathie bought for me on one of her trips (I can't bear actually going to Ikea myself). My brother did a little Ikea hack for me to modify it, and now it's the perfect shelf for my pouches.

Now lets just keep our fingers crossed for no wind and no rain!

You are going to have SUCH a fun day. The stall looks fab on the kitchen bench and will be even more exciting at the event. It will be marvellous. x

YIKES! We were right smack bang caught in a downpour twice today. Please tell me it bypassed the Saleyards...
