Things have been pretty busy here of late. I went to Nelson last weekend, to catch up with family, do some Rose in Thorns reconnaissance work, and have a break from the aftershocks. I promise I didn't run away from the aftershocks, this trip had been planned before the earthquake. I did become paranoid that the Alpine Fault was going to go right about the time I was driving over the Lewis Pass. Fortunately that didn't happen – it snowed instead! It has just started on the way up on Friday, and when I came back on Sunday, there was still lots of snow all around the side of the road, and even on the trees, so I kept stopping to take photos.
This weekend I have Rolleston Market on Sunday, and I will also have a stall at the Ashburton Boulevard day on Monday. I even bought myself a gazebo, so I don't get wet if it rains! So I'm very busy getting organised this week.
Rolleston Market – 26th September
Rolleston Community Market will be in the carpark of the Rolleston Community Centre this Sunday, or it will move indoors if the weather is inclement. Here you will find a great selection of handmade goods, including candles, clothing, children's toys and jewellery, as well fresh produce. There is something for everyone, including hot food and a bouncy castle. For directions, click here
Ashburton Boulevard Day 2010 – 27th September
Ashburton's renowned annual market day extravaganza, featuring over 140 stalls, live entertainment, children's activities and a delicious range of food. It runs from 9am - 4pm, and is held on Ashburton's East Street.
As usual, you can bring along your old candles to recycle, and I will give you a 10% discount on your purchase. It would be lovely to see you if you can come along to either event!
