In spite of the weather we set off with high hopes to the beach. We ate some very nice ice cream and the out came the sun in a very unexpected fashion.
Maddie-Ane enjoyed burying her duck, eating a few handfuls of sand and mooching off down the beach on her own as I was defending our stuff from encroaching seagulls.
We still have sand everywhere!
The weather seems to have taken a turn for the vile so we have had to find some alternative entertainment or risk becoming waterlogged.
We found Machinations they have balls, bouncy animals, rabbits and nice cake for mommy.
Tim loves River Cottage so when their events barn burned down just days before he was due to go on his meat smoking course there were sad faces all round. Knowing he would wear us all out with his overexcitement before he could get to his rescheduled course in May I thought it best to take him to the spring fair, thereby saving my sanity.
We loved it. We ate
lots of some cake, some burgers, watched some puppets and some Morris dancing and brought some rather lovely strawberry plants and other growing stuff to start our kitchen garden.
And Maddie-Ane wore a very cute sun hat.
