I'm absolutely exhausted. So much so, hat I didn't wake up until 11am this morning. I NEVER do that. Especially as I have a 5 year old. I'm thankful that I have a very supportive and considerate husband who kept our son entertained until I got up.
Daylesford held a Twilight Makers Market last night and I'm glad I got to be part of it. I've never done a night market before so it was good to experience it. The doors flung open at 4pm and the crowds kept coming for the first 2 hours.
At dinner time things died down and the lovely organisers decided to close the market early at 8:30pm. Don't know if it was the weather (it was quite cold despite being summer) or the town itself, but people just weren't out in Daylesford last night. Not that I'm complaining because finishing early meant that I got home earlier than planned. The hour and a half drive doesn't bother me, unless it's late at night.
Here's a quick wrap up of last nights twilight market in pics...
