So, all sorts of news:

Both the doll and the devil won first prize, and the doll’s outfit won best in show and, thus, a cup!
Do not get excited! Each entry cost 30p, that’s an outlay of £1.20. There were lots of liqueurs and mine got nowt. Two first prizes netted 60p each… So I broke even… Except that I am requested to get the cup engraved with my name… Cost unknown…

It rained rather in Dorset, but there was more fine weather than wet, and just the change of scene, and reduction in the scale of the housewife’s chores made for a welcome holiday. We walked quite a bit, ate well, played Scrabble and Cluedo, fought over who got to do the puzzles in The Times and stayed in bed ‘til the end of the Today programme. Lovely! (The photo is a view taken in Arne.)

I have thought of several things to tell you about: AS levels, Geography, Lionel Shriver’s So Much For That, Glorious Mud, Church Fetes, and, probably more, but I think smaller helpings would help the digestion - and I need to catch up on what everyone else has to say!

Congratulations on your winnings! That little devil was my favorite! I did chuckle that you have to engrave your own award. And a promo for future posts-very clever.

Oooh big money! What are you going to spend it on? a bun? :)

Well done though, your first prizes are richly deserved.

Well done with the prizes! Obviously, the reward is not the money but the local kudos you have now gained.

I'm Crayon: it's only a promo if anyone remembers to read them - it was really a reminder list for me!
Thanks to you all for your kind words!
