How was your Bank Holiday Weekend? Ours?
Well it started so well - I'd promised big son a cake & he got one;
Then we had the first asparagus of the season for dinner - the greengrocers in town gets this delivered each day from a farm only a few miles away;
Saturday passed in a blur of domestic bliss and light gardening duties. MrVV & I went to a wedding reception in the evening and I had a jolly good dance with some of my friends.
Sunday dawned rather grey & wet - normally the sort of day where we'd opt for an indoor activity. Sadly for the 2 younger members of the household this wasn't an option. They were walking with their scout pack in the Heritage Coast Walk;
They looked this 'happy' at the start - they looked worse later!! Big son did the full 13 miles he'd signed up to do - his group contained the older more experienced scouts & the weather didn't seem to bother them. Little sons group stopped at the 6 mile point as they were all cold, wet & shivering - the adult with them decided that it wasn't a good idea for them to go any further :(
This morning the skies were still cloudy but the persistent downpour of yesterday didn't look like it was going to happen, so we all wrapped up warm and headed out for the day. We went to a Country & Game Fair at a nearby stately home. It was quite good and there was lots to see and plenty of stalls to hide in when the heavens did open.
I've had to eat a slice of humble pie today - the reason? Well MrVV bought an 'Indiana Jones' style hat at an event in the Autumn & I've taken the mickey out of him on more than one occasion. Today my head was cold so I bought one too!! and then little son decided he'd buy himself one as well!!
Now it seems that as well as blogland going mad for swaps - its also going giveaway crazy too! Here are just 3 that have appeared on my dashboard today;
