It’s Showtime

We went to the Royal Bath and West show today. It was fab. I saw cows and horses and ducks and beagles and alpacas and ferrets and bees and lots of other furry creatures.

We also saw lots and lots and lots of cheese at the British Cheese awards. I think we should have worn white coats and gone armed with an apple corer and we could have pretended to be judges and tasted it all…. A plan for next year!



Another highlight was seeing the bloodhound which is going for the 1,000 mph land speed record in South Africa later this year.


The big m and d spent all their pocket money buying cheese and smoked fish, pork scratchings and some plum flavoured gin.

All in all  a lovely day out.

Oh deer, oh deer

This morning we opened the curtains to a carpet of white. It was a beautiful winter scene made even more glorious by the addition of a doe sitting on our lawn. She stayed there for a few hours. While we watched a number of rabbits frolicked around her and a few robins hopped from branch to branch above her head. It was our own real life Disney film.

I took a photo but it hasn’t really come out – if you squint you can see a blob above and left from the centre – that’s the deer!
