so last year i got to dress backstage at the National Asian wedding show in excel and i get to do it again this year.I said never again because it is manic at the bridal shows outfits that take ages to put on normally we have to put on in minutes plus jewelry and headpieces.But it is a fun day out shopping for wedding items everything under one roof.
So summer term has ended and on a high.fingers crossed for me to be a TA come September and some training.
So i hate just sitting around at home .If i have the money and the time i volunteer.I was planning on doing camp with kith and kath.They run activities for people on the autistic spectrum some after school and a week of camp in the summer holidays.I say people because it is for the young and the old.i work with children and teenagers in schools usually but it was oversubscribed with volunteers this year. Thats’ life folks!
On the northbank victoria embankement park there was a program of events and one of the events was the summer market.there were also food stalls and dancing.I worked at the three day market ,from sun up to sundown(7am to 9 pm).It was lovely meeting all the vendors and seeing so many wish list items.
As you do when you you go these events unless you come prepared with loads of money you can only look sometimes.there was a huge amount of jewelry most of it not silver but nice anyway.There was a few food options although 6 quid for a burger because i can’t eat raw eggs or cheese never again.I spent 3 days watching people drinking pimms and cider out of milk cartons (no drinking on the job ; ( ).there was everything but cake.My highlights were the tea people I eventually got the Moroccan mint but smelt every variety damn.I’m basic with tea mint or chamomile but was so tempted by the mint chocolate.They do loose leaf and tea bags@teapeopleltd .There were cider people there as well i don’t drink average cider it has to be sweet so i got cranes@drinkcranes which is cranberry cider.i meant to take a photo but hey i was too busy drinking them at home.
Safe to say i will go next year as a volunteer and as a drinker oops shopper.I could have done my christmas shopping.i met so many nice people from the different businesses from the american guy telling me about his jeans that he makes the urban cowboy soon to come to the lovely lady from dinkibelle who let me have some nail wraps (i will take a pic as soon as i use them).The guy from savon with the most amazing soap ,that i didn’t think i could use soap in my hair.The woman from ridley london who had amazing liberty silk print dresses .
here are sites for the cards i did pick up
