October has arrived, and Harvest Festivals are being celebrated the length and breadth of the Country. We have not quite finished sewing all the fields, but hopefully if the weather stays fine we should not be far from doing so. It does feel strange enjoying temperatures of 28 degrees at this time of the year. Saturday tempted young Alfie-John to have his first visit to the Seaside, I don't think he is up to paddling in the sea or playing in the sand. Rumour has it, his Dad certainly enjoyed tucking into some good old fish and chips! Let's just enjoy the sun, and hope we don't get the snow they are talking about for the end of the month. Talking of the end of the month....

Adventure Toys Open Evening is on Thursday 27th October and plans for it are progressing nicely. We have invited several local businesses who are as passionate about their products as we are about ours, to come along and show you their skills and for you to sample some of their produce. Lewis and Coopers are providing the wine for the wine tasting, and Roots farm shop are promising us some tasters so that should keep body and soul together. W. Braithwaite and Sons are growers of hardy trees, shrubs, roses and herbaceous plants and will be on hand to answer any questions you may have on prickly issues concerning plants. Get ahead hats will solve the problem of where to get a hat for that special occasion or trip to the races. I have it on very good authority that Pink Owl Designs are creating some masterpieces for you to buy on the night, so don't forget your purse. Last but not least we have Advaita life. All this and the opportunity to see some of the new toys we have got in stock. just put it in your diary, 6.30pm until 9.00pm what more could you ask for???

Fliers and posters are being put up this week so I had better get busy laminating. Speak soon, Julie.
