A busy Saturday – 29 June 2013

With a busy Saturday ahead of us, we were up early to prepare for all the different activities ahead.

In the morning we had to pick up various burgers and sausages for a somewhat unexpected BBQ due to take place in the evening.

We also popped over to Mum’s for coffee before heading off to Rebekah and Holly’s school fair.

Unlike last year, the weather was much more favourable and we arrived in good time.

This year, they had additional activities laid on including maypole dancing and a falconry display which Holly volunteered to help with.

There was a large turnout of parents and other hangers-on and the fair was much busier when we left compared to when we arrived.

In the afternoon Sarah went off to an open day at her old school while I cut the grass and dusted off the BBQ in readiness for the evening ahead.  Holly also had a party to go to.

In the evening we were pleased to welcome Freddie, Jen and the girls round, along with Freddie’s mum, Lesley.  Fortunately the weather remained dry and warm and we later got the fire pit out and enjoyed hot marshmallows.

Freddie stayed behind, after his family had left and it was good to catch up and chat.
