Really delighted with my new tins from Morrisons
It’s ages since I have posted so there is loads to catch up on. Towards the end of half term we camped with some friends at a site near Woodbridge. Much to the amusement of other campers , up went my bunting:
On the Friday I persuaded Harry to drive to Bungay to a marvellous fabric shop where I spent over an hour drooling over fabric and eventually emerged with the following.
On the Saturday we spent time in Woodbridge where Harry danced with Green Dragon and I went shopping and stopped occasionally to watch the dancing.
You do meet and see the strangest of people at a dance out!
On the Sunday it was down to The Cherry Tree for lunch and to watch some more dancing.
Followed by music in the park
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:
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.
We had with us all of Harry’s children and grandson, Charlie:
And grandson, Samuel:
-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
Another photo of the bedroom – look at that quilt
Then finally the afternoon finished with dancing around the may pole:
