Bundles of Surprise
My friend Sue and I stepped out on this beautiful sunny day to go to the Bonogin Valley Spring Fair. I bought a brand new floppy pink hat, two Australiana books, scented candles, nick nacks from the CWA stall and heaps of raffle tickets to help with fundraising for the local CWA and the local fire brigade.
What a turn out! Twas a truly successful day. In more ways than one.
Sue and I also decided to enter the inaugural cupcake competition. Gosh. Quite the turnout as it happens. Looking at some of the entries my hopes were dashed at any chance of winning one of the two prizes on offer. So I decide to feel good in helping to raise funds for the fire brigade - each cupcake fetched $1. A couple of hundred dollars were there for the taking.
We chatted in the undercover area eating poffertjes and drinking very nice frothy capps. When I heard my name over the loudspeaker I almost fell off my chair. I won for the Best Decorated Cupcakes. Donated by the local bakery I couldn't believe how very generous was the prize. Such a lovely prize, such a great honour and such a great bloody day.
Best of all; these two very important community organisations raised some serious money.
See you next year Bonogin Valley.
