A Handy Challenge

I did not realise how many things you need two hands for. Just doing the many tasks that we take for granted, having only one operational hand makes these tasks much harder. I have total respect for those that have to deal with this on a daily basis.

This great big bandage is all for an operation to straighten out my little finger. Just as well it was done now as it would have made it difficult to go skiing, and to sort out the tables and the electrics for the fair.The end result should let me get my diving gloves on more easily as well, which will be good. Holidays are on hold for the moment.

Although the stand holders table numbers reads 47 on the website, we actually have 44. Our website manager is about to deal with this.

It is interesting for us that we have less double tables and more single tables booked than in previous years. Once I am hand mobile again, I will play with the floor plan and see how much space we have extra. 

After looking at the feedback from last year and discussing the various options available, and assessing the possible outcome of moving the charity tables to the small hall, we have decided to leave them as they were last year. The flow seemed better and there were fewer bottle necks than in previous years. Any thoughts you have on this, please let us know through the usual channels.

Hopefully by Tuesday evening I will have a smaller and more useful dressing on my hand. It might make walking the dogs less of a challenge on Wednesday.


  1. My word - you do look a wounded chap! Glad to know it's going on well and won't hamper the important the tables! Only joking...hope it feels much better soon. Great line up for February!

  2. Blimey Ron...does look painful...but am quite sure Felicity is looking after you well!!! The line up of artisans for February certainly does look impressive. Celia

  3. I have quite a lot of experience being one handed by now and know how hard it is !! Hope you are looking a bit more like an eartling now, instead of an extraterrestrial critter ... :-)
