We love going to the country shows. So much to see and do. All in one place. Being a textile crafter, I love seeing the sheep and alpacas, and, yes, checking out the characteristics of each of the breed’s fleece. Working out which would be best for spinning or felting.
Needless to say, my family humour me, but not for long. They move me on gently.
I think I have a new favourite. Reminds me of the Flokati rugs we had when I was younger.
There was plenty more to see. Some old favourites and some new. Lots of ideas too.
For the first time, we tried out the fairground rides. The children even persuaded me to go on the ferris wheel. Fortunately those photos are on my husband’s phone. The two girls then decided they wanted a go on another ride. No idea what to call it, but they did have good fun.
A great day out. They’ve started doing music in the evening. A Michael Eavis initiative. Next year, we’ll make sure we can stay a little bit longer.
