Big Day Out Tomorrow

It all happens tomorrow, my local SNB is having a stall at a new market opening up in home town.

I'm on first thing in the morning as part of the set-up crew. I'm not sure how well this will go as usually I am a bit of a cavewoman first thing in the morning. I have hair that looks like it was last modeled on the Wildman of Borneo and mostly I grunt and growl. The daft white car looks on, thinking ??????? Who knows what. I'm not even certain what goes in that mad catty brain, if anything.
Then I get out of bed.

Usually taming the savage beast first off involves caffeine, sugar or a combination of both. The DWC is content to cavort through the house while trying to trip me up, I swear he's in the coffee before I even get up or he's a morning person rein-CAT-nated. My only gripe here is, if he is indeed in the coffee, why can't he make me one?

However the ever competent Sharon will be there first up to marshall my fellow SNB'er Sandra and myself into line at the market. Later in the morning my fellow cavewoman and SNB'er Katt will arrive after her husband has got her out of her cave and into the car. Usually assisted by a cattle prod and long pole (to push the coffee close without getting too close).

I'm looking forward to Katt's arrival because I am sure we will see much cavewoman hijinks ensue. Wearing of tea cosies upon the head, chasing people with sharp pointy sticks, ensnaring possible husbands with scarves and of course the compulsory celebratory hooting upon finding a caffeine source.

Ahhh, I can see it now. David Attenbourgh presents a documentary on Cavewomen in their chosen habitat.
"Fear not market goers! At the prospect of a sale these Cavewomen can not only be civilised but polite. We will approach now carefully so as not to startle them.....Hello! I am after a knit beanie for my next documentry to filmed somewhere cold."

Until next time,
A bona fide red headed cavewoman and damn mad about it!

Ha, ha, ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This cave woman is usually out at about 6.00 to 6.30am.

But the eyes are pegged open and coffee follows not long after.

He he, my eyes may be open, the voice may even be talking BUT that definately does not mean that I am switched on!!!

Katt said...

I wish I had been able to read this before coming today! I would have asked if I was allowed to bite people that touch and didnt bought! I wish we had HALF the sales of people who fondled! I await the cold weather..Surely we will get a lot of sales!

You looked very Pre-Raphaelite!! Very Titian!! According to scientists you are actually dumber when you first wake up. You are up to 10 IQ points down for the first 15-20 minutes when you wake up. That's why I always stub my toe etc!!!
Thanks for woman-ing the stall. I will be there next week too , around 12-30 to see if you need me!!!
