fair’s fair

December 3, 2011

Today was the day for the Christmas Fair at the Pictlets’ school, and since it is also the school where Mr. Pict is Deputy Head, there was a three-line whip on attendance. Boy Wonder and I had a good (and profitable) time on the book stall – profitable for school as it raised a tidy sum, and profitable for us in that we have come home with a box full of desirable books. Boy Wonder always appreciates being on the book stall as he can gut it of the ones he likes the look of before we start, then we spot others as the fair goes on and just tot up our bill at the end. This year was remarkable because although we have a pretty good haul we actually took into school more than we brought home – an unlikely but exceedingly gratifying result. The mulled wine and fruit cake helped to sweeten the occasion too.
