Exhausting but enjoyable long weekend

We have had a very busy weekend again, hence the lack of blog last night. 

Bank holiday weekend always means a busy show weekend and this one was no different.  We had been invited to the Dyke Neuk show yesterday and the Glendale Show today. 

Our alpacas always go down a treat as they are so friendly and approachable.  The knitwear proved very popular too, we were selling lots despite the fact that it is still summer.

Sunday was so windy we were hanging on to the marquee for most of the time, thankfully my parents were on hand to help out so, we took it in turns to serve the customers to give our arms a rest!

Thankfully today was much calmer, although the Glendale Show at Wooler is a big one so we were very busy from the minute we arrived on the showground to the minute we left.  The alpacas certainly drew the crowds and lots of people went home very well informed.

I did take my camera with me both days and forgot to take any photo's - it's so hard to remember blog photo's when you are busy.

We had a lovely time talking to some very interested and interesting people who either loved alpacas, were thinking of keeping them or just loved the look of them.  I also took some knitwear orders so I'd better go and get on with one of them as mum has already started hers!!
