It didn't rain! Well, a bit of drizzle first thing doesn't count, not for a Bank Holiday in England.
So my daughter-in-law and I went to the Surrey County Show and saw chickens and horses and birds of prey and lots and lots of dogs. My daughter-in-law is a great animal lover so she was thrilled, especially when a puppy jumped into her arms!
They had stalls for clothes and toys and solar panels and masses of cars. I bought some sandals, which probably sounds boring but when you have wide feet getting shoes that fit is a big deal. One year they had a telegraph pole set up for climbing and I went to the top of it but there was nothing like that this year.
We ate lunch in the bar tent. There's something about the smell of grass under canvas; I suppose it brings back memories of camping when the kids were small.
I hope you all had a good Monday, whether it was Bank Holiday for you or not. And happy holidays to all the families who have half term this week!
(I didn't remember to take any photos so the one above is off the official website. I hope they won't mind!)
