Had a lovely morning yesterday, manning the Exeter Steiner School stall at the Exeter Eco-Fayre. This is the first time I have been to the Eco-fayre and was pleased to see how many people came. There was a lovely atmosphere, helped along by the band outside.
The fabby Book Cycle people were there and I bought some new books – a great science experiment book that P and E are making a mess with in the garden as I write and Little House on the Prairie. I never really saw the programmes as a child (no television) so I have been completely blown away by how little the settlers had, how much adversity they had to overcome, yet how happy they were. Yes, I know this is pure fiction and through very rosy glasses (nothing is mentioned about the “resettlement” of the native population that’s for sure) but it is still lovely to imagine a world where people are happy without vast rooms full of stuff.
The next Eco-fayre will be on Saturday 30th May at the St Sidwells Centre, Sidwell Street, Exeter.
Hopefully see you there.
