This Weekend at the Duckpond

We have mostly been...

 Watching - the last two big Carnivals for 2014; Friday night at Wells and Saturday night at Glastonbury. For the majority of Carnival clubs, that's it now til next year when it'll all happen again but with new designs, new themes, new music and new everything else.

Wells Carnival

Getting - drenched at Wells Carnival. The heavens opened and it chucked it down; I sheltered under an umbrella in my wheelchair but everything still ended up soggy.

Entertaining - my uncle who was down from Chester to watch the Carnivals and my sister-in-law who was up from Cornwall for the same reason.

Snapping - up reduced price cakes at a scout hall in Glastonbury which was open for food, toilets and warmth during the Carnival. We usually go there each year after the procession has finished (when they sell off all their food) and this year my dad remembered to take some plastic freezer bags to buy up extra cakes to take home. We even had some reduced price hot dogs (30p down from £2.50) and some cheap chicken soup.


Editing - lots of photos from last weeks Carnivals.

Browsing - a few knitting books I picked up at the library last week. One of them is called 'Woodland Knits'; and has some great deer hats, faerie wings and crowns - all beautiful but where would I wear them?

What did you get up to at the weekend?


  1. knit them for your friends for Xmas and invite them to wear them out ice skating with you. I must say I cannot Skate....but i like the idea of it....wearing fairie wings.

  2. I know someone who would probably quite like a deer hat... Can we do a craft swap, please? xxx
