Yesterday we were at the Longbridge Deverill Nursing Home summer fete, with a selection of cakes, sweets, preserves, cheese nibbles and quiches for sale.  Oh, and the peanut butter dog biscuits.

Unlike last year, the weather was kind, and they had a coconut shy, a flower stall and a "running through the cones with a football" game in the garden.  We were indoors, sharing a room with the tombola and a couple of other stalls.

I won TWO prizes on the tombola. Last year I also won TWO prizes, a tin of sweetcorn and a set of pit-a-pat bats.  This year I won a pack of plain cards with envelopes, and a twin-pack of Spam.



Spam aside, we had a pleasant couple of hours chatting to the staff and residents, and selling a selection of tasty goodies.  And, as a bonus, there is some of my delicious mint and dark chocolate bark left over, so I will have some of that after supper tonight.
