Yesterday it rained that really wet rain, and we wondered if the village Easter Fair would still go ahead.
After some robust debate Darrell decided to chance it, taking an excited Nigel with him as it was only a few yards from our house, and Nigel had already gotten a heavy waft of the hot dogs and hamburgers they were cooking outside.
….. which was quite romantic in religious sort of way ….
….. but Darrell felt it best to remind Nigel that it was still a House of God and trying to swing from the, albeit very tempting candelabra type light fittings, was not quite a sin, but very close to one!
So just in case, they both lit a holy candle and hoped Nigel’s religious faux pas hadn’t been noticed by anyone, but especially God!
They were both drawn hypnotically to the cake stall where several slices of Lemon Drizzle Cake and Chocolate Tiffin were purchased for our Easter Monday tea…..
….. But unfortunately the bouncy castle was out of limits. Poor Nigel, when he saw it was empty he thought that his long ambition of having one all to himself was about to come true, only to have it cruelly snatched away from him as decreed by Health and Safety !
Although the road was still closed off, the usually throngs of people milling round bustling tables were sadly missing, the only stall brave enough to stand up to the rigours of the wet rain was …..
It would have been rude not to have purchased just a little slab of fudge from him for all his efforts!
Anyway despite the rain, I had an hours peace and quiet and Darrell and Nigel came back home with the aforementioned cakes and fudge, a large cream vase, a seagull brooch, three pretty teaplates a build your own watermill set (of which more later) and a large plastic aquatic plant for Andy’s new fish tank! So rain certainly did not stop play, and Cliff Richard warbling's were not required!! Happy Days!
