Swinderby and Newark antique fairs preparations

Things are coming together for the fairs. I've been busy making up more boxes of haberdashery ready to take. Normally I don't take a great deal of what is on the website but as I'm keeping the website open I decided that perhaps it would be a good idea to swell my haberdashery table.
Hubby went out yesterday to buy me a small table to place my laptop on so that i can keep in touch with sales whilst I'm at the fairs.

One bad thing and one good thing happened yesterday. The good news was that the plumber is on schedule and so can start the work next week on the new central heating system and shower room extension whilst we are away. I'm really pleased about that as it means that all my hard work of moving things around the house and into the lock-up have not been in vain. However the bad news really freaked me out. I had a call from my bank from the fraud squad no less telling me that they had had to cancel my credit card as the number had been found on a list they had received. Fortunately it had not been used but it is rather scary. Of course it has been cancelled at a time when items like my internet provider has to be paid etc. etc. So I will be spending part of today contacting the various sources with explanations. As I'm going away for a week it means that the new card will arrive whilst I'm away and I won't be able to do anything about it until my return. It leaves me wondering how and where they got my number from as I am so hot on online security. I have been told that tend to just write lists of numbers and I was just the unlucky one but that doesn't help me. I'll keep you posted on this one.
