Crafty Castle Cary
January 13, 2012
So, it was craft fair time just before Christmas. Kilver Court in Shepton Mallet didn’t run one this year, so I was hoping to do the 2 fairs nearest Christmas at Frome’s Cheese and Grain. Unfortunately the lady running it, after about 5 weeks of me asking her, finally told me there wasn’t space. So a few weeks ago I did a stall at Caryford Hall in Castle Cary. Having seen the type of shops in Castle Cary High Street (lovely little shops that I love, but quite expensive) I decided to risk the £25 pitch fee. I’m glad I did – I did very well and was my most successful craft fair yet. From a buyer’s point of view I’d recommend it too – there was a really nice variety of crafts and lots of choice for Christmas gifts. To be honest, several of the stalls were selling higher priced items, so were out of a lot of visitors’ budget, and they didn’t do so well. Perhaps the local rich people were busy shopping in the High Street! However, the fact that the hall is a bit out of town, meant that people had made an effort to go there, and were therefore ready to spend their money if they saw things they liked.

In knowing  Morse’s first name, I always thought I’d win a point in a pub quiz one day. It never came up, and I’ve never done a pub quiz. It isn’t likely to be a question now anyway, but I watched this programme last night and absolutely loved it! Catch it on the ITV i-player thing if you haven’t seen it yet. It was a great story-line and the theme tune made me go all tingly! I loved the (slightly cheesy) exchange between the new Morse, and the character played by John Thaw’s daughter: ‘Have we met before?’ ‘Perhaps in another life’ ! My only criticism is that there are clearly not enough British actors to go round. I kept thinking I’d seen them in Morse, so I had IMDB open and it turned out 2 of the main characters had been in episodes of Lewis, and one was the driving instructor what dunnit in an old Morse. I really hope ITV turn it into a proper series.
