There was more than just some fabulous vintage cars on display at the Surbiton Festival last weekend. There was some pretty amazing local produce available too. Some of the food producers I was familiar with already from our monthly Farmers Market, others were new to me.
One of the familiar faces was my friend Catherine with her amazing decorated cookies. I mentioned to Little Miss 5 that Catherine would have a stall in amongst all the others on our way to the festival and she insisted we head straight there. Once we had stopped off by the balloon seller to buy her the most ridiculously oversized prancing horse balloon you've ever seen. Honestly, it's almost as big as she is! And, of course as we bought her one, we also had to get Little Master 2 one as well ... although we opted for Thomas the Tank Engine for him. Yay.

Ok, so I've already started making a few plans myself, but Catherine has been far more organised and has been dreaming up Christmassy goodness in the form of a biscuit Advent calendar (!) Although how she expects people to manage to only have one biscuit a day escapes me.
