This Weekend at the Duckpond

We have mostly been...

 
Laughing - at funnyman Andrew Lawrence at Komedia in Bath. It was the second time we've seen him and he was just as good as the first. He talks to the crowd a lot and the whole show rambles from one thing to another but he's great fun and well worth seeing if he's anywhere near you.

Watching - this week was Gillingham (in Dorset, not the one in Kent) Carnival. It was a lovely warm night and one of the charity shops in the high street was selling tea, coffee, soup and delicious homemade cakes.

Decorating - more building work, more trips to B&Q and Wickes, more mess upstairs...


Sorting - out my wardrobe, giving my clothes a bit of a spring (autumn?) clean.
Me and my lovely friend M are off to Jen's (My Make Do and Mend Year) swishing event in Warminster a week Friday so I've now got several things put aside to take along!


Collecting - my latest purchase from Asda. A bra and pants set with fairground rides on!
Is that taking my love of fairgrounds a bit too far, do you think?

What did you get up to at the weekend?

    1. The cake was good, they were huge slabs of sponge and the shop was only charging 75p for a slice (I did give them some extra change though). :-) x

    1. Oh no! There seems to be a lot of it going around, we've got several people off work at the mo with "freshers flu" (even the staff get it!). Hope you all feel better soon x

  4. The fairground undies remind me of the Moulin Rouge...Now I have a very different mental image of Somerset's carnivals!

    1. Haha! Well Moulin Rouge and Burlesque have both been done in Carnival over the last 10 years :-)
      The skimpiest outfits I've ever worn were a very short (backside on view) aztec warrior dress and another year, a very short (at the front) flamenco dress. The one "mustn't forget" item for performing at a Carnival is a pair of bikini shorts to cover your modesty! :-) x

Thank you very much for all your lovely comments; I do have every intention of replying but sometimes life with a baby gets in the way...
