Blimey where did the weekend go? One minute I was settling down to a Friday night glass (or 2) of the red stuff and the next minute the alarm was whining in my ear and apparently it was Monday morning and time to get up!!
It was one of those weekends - taken up with hobbies and being busy. Big son has just kept himself busy over the weekend - out with friends and then just enjoying not having to do any revision! Little son & MrVV have played for 3 different brass engagements and I've sold a few more bits and been a brass groupie!!
Saturday was Little Son's school fete - the weather was typically British - sunshine and showers. Most of the showers happened whilst the band weren't playing. MrVV got roped into joining in with them - as the teacher pointed out - he was going to be there so he might as well play too!
No photos from Saturday - I was just too busy - selling stuff and catching up with friends I only ever seem to bump into a school events these days.
Sunday was brass x 2. The morning they took part in an event on Aldeburgh beach which was part of the Aldeburgh Festival. Brass players - playing random pieces, scattered over the beach and then brought together - all conducted by Semaphore! Yep, very different. They weren't quite sure what to expect but it seemed to go really well;
One small boy - hiding behind his instrument.
Their brass band - also taking part where musicians from local schools and youth groups.
Gorgeous deckchairs - never sat on - just for display.
The sharp eyes amongst you may be thinking you've seen similar pics today - that because you have - Dawn was there as her son was playing with the school brass group. Little son had the choice and opted for the silly clothes wearing option - wanted to be like his Dad on Fathers Day!!
In the afternoon, the school band were playing in Dunwich and the plan had been to drop me off and for just the 2 of them to go together. However, my mind was changed for me and I went along too. Rather glad I did - not only the band but Morris Dancing too and you know I love that!!
The dancers were invited to join in when the band played the Can-Can (hence the post title!!)
Don't tell anyone but next weekend, there are no brass engagements!! Already we are planning a weekend off - just some family time. Whats the betting something crops up in the week!!?
I had hoped to show you some more crochet progress but to be honest there hasn't been much over the weekend - a few stitches here and there but nothing more than that. Maybe next time!!
See you soon
