I’ve been in a bit of a blogging funk lately. Every time I try to sit and write a new post something else comes up or my mind goes blank (between you and me I don’t think I ever recovered from pregnancy induced ‘baby brain’!)
I know my trouble is an inability to focus on one task at a time. Consequently I have a whole array of ‘works in progress’ and plenty more ideas just willing themselves to be started. I really must start finishing a project before starting something new!
Perhaps that will be my next post, I’ll give you a glimpse into the variety of half-finished/just started projects I have going at the moment.
Anyway I’ve been writing this post on and off for a fortnight now so here it is finally!
Friday before last we had the whole day together as a family (which has been rare in recent months!) so we took our opportunity and drove up to the Kent County Show.
There was one overriding theme to the day.
Lots and lots of mud. (Hence the title picture for this post)
That said, we were really looking forward to it and still had a lovely day!
There were all sorts of stalls, stands and tents of every description. We stuck to the more traditional and agricultural aspects of the show. In recent times I think it has expanded and now includes more sport car exhibits and company stands which aren’t really of interest to us.
Sadly I didn’t take many pictures. I wanted to enjoy exploring the show with Emma and that generally means having my hands to full for a camera!
Emma’s favourite area was definitely all the show animals. There were all kinds of wonderful looking sheep, cows, goats and poultry, but the favourite without doubt was the goat tent. They are such friendly little animals and are quite keen to be petted. Vince did manage to snap a photo on his phone of us.
After having her fill of the animals she spent most of the afternoon asleep in her chair!
Which was ok, it meant Vince and I got to enjoy the food tent (amazing local produce but no pictures =[ Oh and the cheese… the beautiful wonderful cheese….) and all the judged competitions.
I’d never seen a vegetable competition up close before I had no idea that veg could look so good! I didn’t know that the rules were so strict either some of the judges comments were really fussy. My favourite comment is below… I had no idea this was the case… but then I’d never really given it much thought before I suppose.
So much veg!
There were of course lots of beautiful flower arrangements and garden displays as well as the fruit and veg but again I was very minimal in my photography. It was a lovely day out together as a family and now summer is here and we have more time and some lovely trips planned for the next few weeks hopefully! I look forward to sharing them with you all!
