Nicki joins us

Nicki joined us today. The weather seemed to get better and better, so we decided to pop down to Kelmarsh Hall for their annual Game and Country Fair. Apparently it’s been running for over 20 years and yet, we’d never heard of it!

By the time we got there, it was a proper Summer’s day and the place was very, very busy. Luckily, Lee was with us and by taking advantage of her disabled badge, we were offered some perfect positioning for the car.

It was a varied show: falconry, sheep-dog demonstrations, fishing, jousting, air-rifles, bouncy castle etc etc. We had a really good time and stayed until lunchtime.

Then, it was off to Market Harborough for a spot of window-shopping, but not until we’d had some lunch. We settled for Pizza Express where we’d been with Ralph and Karen last year. Another excellent meal.

We then headed home and chilled out in the garden making the most of the sunshine. Nicki left about 5.30 heading for Derbyshire where she’s spending a few days. We spent the rest of the evening catching-up with programmes we’d recorded on Sky+.

Phew! What a Scorcher!!
