Oh, I do like a good village fete/fair (not sure what the difference is I'm afraid). I see that a number of bloggers have been posting about their visits to village fetes this weekend, and I am no exception.
We stayed in Surrey this weekend with friends and visited the Old Fair of Abinger. It was a close to idyllic afternoon: the sun was shining (mainly) and we let Junior and friend roam around at will while the grown ups had a civilised time chatting, strolling around the many stalls, partaking of ye olde cream tea (yes, for once, dear readers, the flask stayed at home) and the occasional drop of "medieval mead", watching the children's races and tug of war and enjoying the thrills and spills of a jousting tournament.
Joy of joys, there was a bric a brac stall to visit. How about that for devotion to duty? This is what I got: Another coffee pot (£1) to add to the collection:
Just thought I'd show you some of my collection of coffee jugs - the Meakin ones:
Some rather groovy table mats (20p):
Lastly, these glass bird paperweight lovelies. £3 for the two but worth every penny don't you think. They are Wedgwood glass and I'm very pleased with them.
Hope y'all had a great weekend and are looking forward to the week ahead.
