Sorry I have been absent for a while. Life suddenly got the better of me.
A young boy in my class was run over after school a couple of weeks ago. I went in the ambulance with him to hospital. Words cannot describe the trauma and the impact it had on me.
Fortunately the lovely boy is okay and back at school (the driver was travelling at under 20mph – thank goodness for low speed limits near schools). Apart from losing consciousness and some bruising he was a very, very lucky boy.
I have a lot of blogging to catch up on!! Now the sensible thing would be to start at the beginning, but I think I prefer to post in reverse order!!
So today, with Miss B revising (AS levels in French, English and Biology) and My Boy playing football, Steve and I went to a May Day Fair, in a village where I spent a lot of time many years ago.
As a child I lived in the neighbouring village and I would walk through a lovely bluebell wood to meet with friends and pass lazy days gossiping and planning our future (usually involving a handsome prince and horses!).
I had forgotten what a pretty village it is with chocolate box stone cottages, with colleyweston slate roofs, nestling in the beautiful landscaped parkland of Elton Hall.
The village looked beautiful today with lots of bunting, vintage music playing in the background and stalls selling everything from plants, French bric-a-brac, homemade crafts, home grown plants and freshly baked bread and cakes.
I took some photos before the battery ran out on my camera (although it wasn't easy balancing a bag, brolly and camera!!!
We didn’t stay long as unfortunately it was pouring with rain again. I felt so very sorry for all the villagers ,and stall holders, who had put in so much effort. I love events like this - they really bring a community together.
I bought myself a couple of things before we headed back to the car
an old bottle/jar - think I might use this for bubble bath?
and a rusty bracket!!!!
and home to an afternoon of cross stitch
and listening to the radio.
I hope you have had a lovely weekend?
Back soon xx
