Darrell has had an exciting couple of days, but I don’t really think that the village carnival yesterday was quite up to Take That’s standards but after a nap Darrell got up to watch the floats go past the house, it was quite a special event as it the first time Nigel had seen it.
It’s hard to believe another year has gone by and that this time last year we were doing exactly the same thing (except without Nigel). We got into our strategic positions on the wall in front of the house to the gain the best vantage point.
The Viking Longboat…..
….. or the Disney Princesses.
Nigel’s carnival float of choice was the Jack In The Boxes pulled by a tractor, with the little ones popping up and down in their boxes, he put quite a lot of money in their tin.
He was jibber jabbering a lot in my ear and after some consultation between Darrell and myself, we think he was asking if we would make him a jack in the box box to play in when Marcel comes to play next ….what is he like?
We will see what we can do, it’s been quite a while since we’ve crafted and it could be an interesting challenge for us..... a box for Nigel!
We discussed it for a while as the procession processed up the road, past the pub........
......... and then we went in for a cup of tea and chocolate hobnob, still disbelieving just how quickly the past year had gone.
