Good news - my computer is mended. Dear MrVV spent most of Saturday installing a new hard drive and then painstakingly copying everything I needed from old disk onto the new one and then making sure everything worked - total darling he is.
What a lovely weekend - another sunny bank holiday - here's hoping its the same at the end of month.
Friday was a very lazy day - MrVV & I watched all the Wedding coverage - I loved it and think they make a smashing couple.
Saturday was computer repair day. I kept out of the way - I gave in and had a housework blitz - even the boys found their floors and finally put all their clean clothes into drawers/cupboards rather than just heaps all over the floor.
Sunday was wonderful. MrVV & I had planned a day out together - the boys were asked but as soon as they heard the mention of Morris dancing they opted instead to remain hobbits at home. Their loss - we had a wonderful time. We headed up to Geldeston Locks which is the most amazing little pub on a river bank. Its reached by a little and bumpy track and was very hidden.
They were planning an all day celebration of Beltane. We didn't make the 5am start but did get there in time for a scrummy pub lunch and for some of the afternoon entertainment;
Traditional Maypole dancing and crowning of the May Queen (just hidden near the tree in the shade)
Mummers - oh where was St George when I needed him for the Photo Hunt !!
More Morris Dancing - can never have enough :)
We wished we could have stayed longer but we'd promised to be at the 90th birthday party of a neighbour. I am glad we did go there - we had a lovely evening - plenty of wine/beer and all within staggering distance of our house :) Even the boys came for a while and were soon dragged off by the neighbours Great-Grandson to push him on a swing.
Today was a family day - it gets quite tricky nowadays to persuade the boys out but some things are too tempting for them to want to miss. Think Southwold - Pennyfalls, walk, chips for lunch, more walking and then an ice-cream - they agreed and we had a lovely if slightly wind-swept and salt sprayed time;
Pennyfalls - little son & I made our £1's worth of 2ps last for ages AND we won 3 prizes.
You know its spring when all the beach huts are put back along the Prom.
Last time I did a Southwold post someone commented on the lack of cannons - well here's one with me & little son on it.
Lastly yesterday morning MrVV & I headed to a different car boot sale which has just started again for the season - I was desperate for more teacups and saucers to convert into pincushions - I struck lucky - 4 matching sets & 1 mix/match one - for the princely total spend of just £3.50. Rather handy as I've just booked into a Vintage/Craft fair at the end of the month!!
See you soon
