All the Fun of the Fair and a Very Late Night

abberton feteWell my busy weekend turned out to be just that. I managed to do everything I had planned apart from painting the doors though. That was a bit over ambitious!

We had a really nice afternoon at the Abberton Manor fete – my friend works there. The weather was glorious after an unpromising start. It was a proper, old fashioned event, with splat the rat, the tombola, a rather marvellous cake stall, a hilarious dog show, Pimms and cream teas. We made straight for the plant stall of course – at 50p a plant we filled up the car!cake stall I was also persuaded to take part in the sack race. I was rubbish and came last! I also nearly died laughing 🙂

On Sunday we had a reasonably successful boot sale and it was a beautiful sunny morning, which brought out the crowds. Getting up so early did mean that I was rather exhausted by the evening, and I had planned an early night. This was scuppered by our latest language student, who was supposed to arrive by 9 pm, but didn’t turn up until 12.35am!! It wasn’t his fault, bless him – his flight from Spain was delayed. He seems like a lovely lad anyway.

I have been shattered all day today and nothing is going to stop me hitting the sack early!
