Today was the Hills Homeschool Market!
We had a lot of stuff to sell which we have accrued over the past year, and it was a good chance to catch up with some people we haven’t seen in a while. Since I’m at uni now, we don’t go to a lot of homeschool events, and there were lots of little people there that aren’t little people any more, and lot of other little people we didn’t recognise.
It was a shame I couldn’t catch up with any of my sort of peer-age friends, but, you know, homeschoolers aren’t given a good enough education to go to uni at 16 and be accepted into exclusive Master’s programmes in Switzerland at 20. (This is obvious sarcasm. I’ve been feeling slow for a few years now, but I’m pretty sure it’s because I was a schoolite until I was 13).
Our stall included preserves (capsicum and tomato relish, tomato and sultana relish, sweet tomato and zucchini relish, blackberry jam, lemon wedges), chocolates (milk and dark, nut and no-nut), and crocheted teddy bears.
The blackberry jams proved popular, the other preserves less so, and the teddy bears were insanely popular with the 3-10-year-old girl demographic.
The market was very busy, with about fifteen homeschool families, a busload excursion from a nursing home, and many other people dropping in throughout the morning.
