This Weekend at the Duckpond

We have mostly been...

 
 
Cooking - lots and lots of food ready for a picnic on Sunday at the Mid Somerset Show. We usually do baked potatoes cooked in a steam engine but this year we thought we'd have a change and go for pie, tortilla, savoury nibbles and (of course) lots of cake.
 
Sausage and Tomato Chutney Rolls
 
 
 
Using - up some blackberries and raspberries from the freezer that were actually picked from last September.

Erecting - a gate and then painting the fence that's mounted to the gate structure. Obviously Andrew did all that, I just supplied the tea and bits of food that went wrong during the cooking process!

Participating - in Jane's (from Is That You Darling) photo an hour challenge on Saturday. Round up to follow tomorrow!
 
 
 
Eating - more food than I really needed at a BBQ on Saturday night. The people who run the vintage vehicle field at the Mid Somerset Show hold a little party the night before and we ended up having hog rolls, sweet and sour chicken, hot dogs and lots of cheese. Andrew had all that plus faggots, a burger and a Danish pastry to finish!

Warming - ourselves up with a fire in a log. I'm sure they must have a fancy name or something but for the moment, it's just 'fire in a log'.

Meeting - several friends at the show on Sunday. Plus lots of friends of the human variety as well.

Enjoying - the sunshine when it finally appeared at the show along with all the fabulous exhibits. If you like cheese, you would've definitely been in some kind of cheesy heaven in one of the tents!

What did you get up to at the weekend?

  1. Your weekend looks delicious! If heaven exists, it definitely has a cheese tent.

    I spent mine at an incredible spa and hotel combo place, which I'm going to write all about later this week because it was EPIC. Hope you've had a good Monday! xxx

    1. Wow, that sounds amazing! I've never actually been to a spa, hmm, wonder if I should put it on my '33 before 33' list? :-) xx

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...
