I went to a "Medieval" day which was surprisingly good for those all ages and it's not often you can say that.

Did they have jousting and invite one of the audience to fight a mounted knight? The one near me used to do that and I wouldn't take my kids as I knew they'd volunteer me, lol.

Haha my kids would do that too. No jousting today but a "battle" for the kids to join in with. I did find the falconry interesting and my energy was spent eating, drinking and watching the jester lol

Three falcons and an owl in the part of the show I watched but there was another two shows later which I didn't see. I went over to have a gamble on the ferret racing lol.

I was rowing a boat along the river today. I'd forgotten you had to face the opposite way to which you are moving.

I went to an art exhibition where a number of local artists were displaying their work. I bought a painting.

Last night a local charity held a half decent street party. One big advantage of fine weather.

I took a trip on a light railway with a steam train. Love the smell of the smoke and the enthusiasm of the volunteers. We crossed several roads where guards got out with red flags stopping traffic.
Back to normal now lol.

Ooooh good :-) They're smallish sticky up things on roads, when we were young after a night out where we got blotto'd we'd either fall over them or throw up over them as we stumbled our ways home...we used to know when we got home by how many we'd fallen over!

We mainly used to end up miles away in a different town falling asleep against them - ahhh, those were the days, I've just realised, my navigational skills have never really changed :-(

I went to the Notting Hill Carnival and it was all fun and laughter, music and dance and a fantastic day out but completely spoilt later by the news of the stabbing.

I went to the coast for the bank holiday weekend and stayed with friends. I'm surprised more on here didn't do something different. I think garden centres were very busy.

The good weather helped to make it a great weekend for going out with family of street parties or to the beach. The weather makes all the difference.

Make the most of the outdoor venues because we'll be moaning about the cold soon

I'm staying with friends this weekend and a short time ago we were sat outside enjoying a warm night but now it's thunder and lightning and heavy rain so we are listening to music and playing cards in the conservatory.
