Bank Holiday weekend

This weekend was a Bank Holiday. Saturday was fairly uneventful, consisting mainly of avoiding housework and walking the dogs.

Sunday I met up with a friend and her 2 children aged 1 and 3 yrs. I don't get to see them very often as they live about 4 hours away, but they were staying with relatives only 2 1/2 hours away so we did a half way meet. Our meeting place was Frome in Somerset. We had a nice lunch then went to a 'Thomas the Tank Engine' day at the nearby East Somerset Railway. We had a really lovely day and I think the children enjoyed themselves!
Today was May bank holiday, so we went to the local May Fayre. For the first time in years the weather was kind, I even got a little bit of sunburn! The May Fayre was traditional and fun. I don't think it has changed in all the years I've been going. After that we went for a dog walk and Tarka played with her new ball that I bought at the May Fayre. The it was back to Mum and Dad's for tea.

All in all, a lovely weekend!!

Sad news...

Little Dove died today.

He'd been doing really well, learnt to feed himself and seemed OK, but died while I was at work today. Poor little scrap.
