Up with the lark

What a day!
I'm an early bird, but I don't really like it when the alarm goes after only 4 hours sleep, and that's what happened this morning. Arise - and shine! Well, I tried but it was hard work. We had a long journey, and the motorway was AWFUL! Not only was the traffic really heavy for a Saturday but it was raining! Thankfully we arrived in one piece, and the sun rose above the horizon shining its light and dispelling the rain. Much more cheerful.
We sold our bits and pieces and much money was raised for a very good cause. The hi-light of the day was a raffle - but none of the prize-winners were there, so it was a big anti-climax. Before we left I took a walk, and guess what I found
A field of pumpkins. Now that was NOT what I expected!
Finally it was time to pack everything away and load the car again. The journey home was a little easier - at least it was dry.
I'm shattered! I'm not sure why, and we are out again tomorrow. Thankfully we get an extra hour's sleep as the clocks go back tonight here in the UK. A whole extra hour! I think I need it. Tomorrow could be interesting. We have to drive across Salisbury Plain and the forecast is STORMY!
If you don't hear from me you will know I've been swept away.
Onwards and Upwards my dear friends. I know some of you have snow forecast. Take care and stay safe, whatever your weather.
