This Weekend at the Duckpond

We have mostly been...

Visiting - a small steam rally down in Langport in Somerset where one of our friends had a couple of vintage lorries, a 1890s fairground organ, a traction engine and an amusement arcade on display at the show. We were tasked with looking after the fairground organ all day.

Playing - lots of books of music on the organ. We started about 11am and between me, Andrew and his sister we played choons til 10pm, only stopping for a couple of hours at 5pm for a trip to a local pub.

Wishing - Andrew's mum a very happy birthday. She turns 70 today and Andrew's sister made her a chocolate cake to have on Saturday at the steam rally (which turned into a very gooey and sticky cake in the heat).

Participating - in Jane's photo an hour challenge for July. Round-up to follow tomorrow!
Enjoying - the company of two of our friends and their energetic (but entertaining) small children. The older one (at 4 years) had a whale of a time weeding our patio, which naturally we were very pleased about!
What did you get up to at the weekend?


  1. Haha how cunning - I'll need to remember that next time we have small visitors; "yes, yes, you can pick ALL of Auntie Katie's special yellow flowers that grow all over the lawn". That cake looks epic - happy birthday to Andrew's Mum! I hope you managed to pull off the surprise without her guessing! xxx

    1. Oh you should definitely try it, I think most little fingers would like pulling things up, you just need to direct them to the right ones to grab! :-) xxx
