Lots of running around, boring shopping (food), interesting shopping (vintage), tedious errands and cooking. Not to mention a couple of tantrums for good measure!
The start of the saintliness, you understand, was dressing up properly for all 3 days of the fair. This is the first night outfit, I'm still waiting on pics of the rest.
Do you like my new dress??worn with cutoff gloves coz gloves never fit me
I added the brooch which was a gift from Helga!.

quirky badges for the sellers to wear...they come up with something different every time, it's so cute.
Tonights halo-worthy activities included lots of cooking.
I seldom blog about food but tonight I'm making an exception. My grandmother hasn't been too good lately so I made a few special treats for her.
First a spicy sausage casserole, then a mint and lemon sorbet. I make everything from scratch with fresh ingredients, I'm from good migrant stock and it's the way we've always cooked. I firmly believe it provides better nutrition and a longer life.
Then, using a recipe from the lovely Froogs (oh, you don't know Froogs? Go check her blog out, she's an amazing lady) I made Cornish pastys.
Inside is onion, sweet potato, swede, potato and good quality steak.
Ready to go in the oven! I even managed to make the pastry fairly well, not bad for my first attempt.
Et voila! They turned out perfectly. 5 hours later the cooking is all done. Its 2am as I write and the blogging is now done.
See? Just call me a saint and be done with it.
