Suffolk Show

Yesterday we braved the weather and went to the Suffolk show. It was cold and rainy but there were a few highlights. Walking around we bumped into Harry’s daughter,Kate and the two grandsons. Then we went and watched his eldest daughter, Samantha get 2nd in the Dartmoor and Shetland pony class.


Then as we were leaving I bought a peely bin from this stall:




Reorganising the conservatory

Over the weekend I spent a lot of time tidying and resorting the conservatory so I can use it for sewing as it has a lovely big table. Here it is at its tidiest.




More about the first May bank holiday weekend

I promised more so here it is. I know its late but school has been so hectic with coursework deadlines and exam revision classes.

More of the morris dancing with Green Dragon morris


Until they were so exhausted:


Then followed several trips back to this wonderful shop to buy fabric and more fabric and still more fabric……


The following day we traipsed down to the castle:


Where we watched a band The Singing Loins, that does punk type music:


We travelled back to Suffolk on the Sunday evening and on Monday we were at the Museum of East Anglian life in Stowmarket for yet more morris dancing.

SV202796 We had with us all of Harry’s children and grandson, Charlie:SV202815

And grandson, Samuel:

SV202814-the green on his face is the face paint that Green Dragon morris use on their faces. Below is the two boys trying their hand at border morris sticking:


and then Samuel with his grandad


When a woman in the crowd heard me talking to Samuel about his grandad dancing, she was really impressed and asked if I had really said  ‘grandad’

The museum had various displays that caught my eye:


The school room

SV202904The shop

SV202822The Kitchen


The bedroom

SV202905Another shop

SV202834Another photo of the bedroom – look at that quilt

Then finally the afternoon finished with dancing around the may pole:


A Busy Weekend

Saturday began with a walk down Rochester High Street where I had to stop at this shop:

sv202700Unfortunately it wasn’t open at that point but I got talking to a woman who also stopped to look in the window. She was telling me all about her stack of fabrics. We left both resolved to return to the shop later in the day.

Then it was further down the High Street to watch Harry and his morris side dance:
