Phew! What a weekend. It was full, busy, fun and sunny Just how we like it.
The annual A&P show came to town, it's a bit of a highlight here. And most conversations the week of the show go like this - "so, are you going to the show?"
We always go early, and leave before it gets too manic. We managed a 3 hour stay with the boys, which was plenty. A few rides, yummy food, animal farm, tractor gazing, side show looking......
Bell went with friends this year, we saw her briefly in the crowd. The weather held out. No gumboots required again this year.
We went to a family BBQ at my brothers. Lots of wine and good food. Love watching them all running around together like lunatics. Tom had an impromptu sleepover too.

Sunday walks after breakfast in the vineyard are a favourite around here. We usually venture in after a big cooked breakfast. The plan is to walk off all that bacon (and toast) and give the kids and pooch a blast of fresh air. We just had Georgie with us on this walk. Bell was sleeping off spending 7 hours at the show, she was exhausted. Tom was at the sleepover still. The flu was brewing in George, hence the need to be carried and have lots of stops to sit in the grass.........this never happens. He usually runs the entire way. He seems to be getting everything at the moment.
I spent Sunday afternoon in the garden. Planted up strawberries in one of the raised planters. Will fill the other one too I think. We eat a lot of strawberries come Summer. Should save us a fortune!
New plantings in the fairy garden. Miniature horses have taken over. The pebbles and coloured stone pathways have long gone - little hands and all that.
My SNL Em, bought me these retro tablecloths from the markets. They won't be going in the Travelling Linen Stash swap though but I found some other great things over the last couple of weeks to add in, lots of souvenir tablecloths among them.
How was your weekend?
Have a great week!
