Wit and wisdom over Whitsuntide

A long weekend and a full weekend. Saturday was plenty of chores and garden work and a big trip to the tip. Ross was here too.
Sunday saw glorious weather and after watching some of the Chelsea Flower Show on TV I was re-inspired, so had a drive out to the garden centre and bought a few bits. Ross helped me get things planted up and the yard is looking great. Late afternoon after Ross and H had a game of pool at the pub Fiona and Chris arrived and we all had a chili dinner in the garden (H can really cook an ace chili!) and later when it got cooler we came in for another one of H’s testing and teasing quizzes. Chris and I won against Fiona and Ross. A great evening.

Evidence (365/345) Lazy Sunday afternoon

I could hardly believe it when Bank Holiday Monday dawned as lovely and sunny as Sunday. Breakfast in the yard in the sun and when C and F had left for their day out us three went to Penrith to see the street festival. It was excellent. There was a 30-foot pig, mechanical Morris Men, flower-pot men, a dishy-as-hell French paper hat maker who had the most heavenly and heart-warming smile, and lots more. Particularly brilliant were the highlight of the day; Castellers de Vilafranca (Catalonia, Spain). 100 performers from Catalonia building ‘human castles’ seven and eight storeys high before your eyes – a never-to-be forgotten spectacle. They called for volunteers and Hector gave it a go. We bumped into friends… Tim, Michelle and little Emma and also Alan and Steph. On the way back to the car H was interviewed for the TV… wonder what station for…..
