It was such a shame the weather was so bad. We had literally just arrived when the organisers started announcing the prizes so that everybody could get home early. I didn't really get a good look at all the other goodies in the tent, not to mention seeing a single sheep/cow/tractor/horse (or ice cream!). There's always next year...
This morning we had some left over scones with the newly opened rhubarb and ginger jam. Well, the other jams must have been fabulous because this jam is lovely, I think!
I had some chocolate cake to celebrate!
By the way, in taking baking photos in a messy kitchen and trying not to capture the mess, I've discovered that holding up the item and photographing it in macro mode with a flash makes the background nice and black which is good for highlighting the object.
And another thing... I'd not been looking forward to the bag-packing we were involved with on Saturday morning, but it turned out to be good fun. I had a great checkout operator, he was very popular with his customers and had an excellent line of patter. Over the whole day we raised over £700 thanks to the generous shoppers of M&S Braehead.
