Oh yes 1,000 Morris, Molly & Clogg dancers in 55 troupes from all over the country - like I say Marmite- either love it or you hate it!! MrVV & I loved it, little son tolerated and big son kept his ipod turned on!! As lots of the dancing was taking place in the main shopping area the boys did wander off to look in the shops and big son even bought himself a hoodie with his own money.
Like I said dancers from all over - some traditional;
and some less so - these pink & black ones were morris meets punk style
and these ones were quite gothic
Now you can't go to Bury without visiting the Abbey Gardens as these are always gorgeous and colourful;
Today has been another sunny one - this afternoon was spent in the garden. MrVV planting & pruning, big son cutting the grass and little son & I playing with the veggie patch and planting a few pots;
We also planted a new lavender hedge by the back gate - hoping when its grown it will attract lots of bees and also provide lavender for cutting & drying;
2 best bits about today;
Being able to have bare feet & wear sandals :)
and getting an award from Bad Penny @ HenHouse ;
Now I have had this award before but am grateful for getting it again. Just need to think of 7 things to tell you about me........
1. If it wasn't for my 6 weekly hairdressers visits, I'd be almost grey.
2. I am scared most dogs :(
3. I swim as well as a stone.
My mind has gone blank so I'll leave those till another time! I also need to pass this award on - again I shall do that another day too. I need to get into the kitchen and prepare dinner.
See you soon
