Last Saturday Stuart and I went over to spend the day with Judith, Gavin, Clodagh, Colin and the kids in lovely Coulsden.
In the afternoon we all drove to the annual Chipstead Fair. It was nice fair actually - stalls with homemade jams, a huge tent to house the best rhubarb and biggest marrow competitions, a bouncy slide for the kids, a local choir singing songs from the shows, a brass band playing ABBA, stalls selling various home crafts, a local falconer with some sleepy looking owls, a rather sad looking candle stall, the local school gymnastics, that sort of thing. It had just the right mix of cheese and good nature. Mind you, the cheese stall itself was darned impressive!
In the evening the guys laid on a fantastic barbecue for us and we drank the night away together swapping stories, laughing and being entertained by the kids.
