Bank Holiday outing...

This week we had a bank holiday, and we were extremely lucky that the weather stayed fine. We had plans. The Surrey County show was on in Guildford, which we have been to before and we enjoy. This time my Mum was going to meet us there.
Its a fun and fully entertaining day.

Beautiful Angora Goats

Lovely Goats


Beautiful Falcon Birds

Pretty little Caged birds

Noisy Poultry

Bees and Honey making

Floristry displays

In the Main Arena, throughout the day, were various events, showcases and races.

Double Harness Scurry races

Traditional Farming Methods

And the monster trucks - Big Pete

And The Grimm Reaper

We thoroughly enjoyed our day, in addition to the above, there was also all the food, shopping and craft areas too. It was lovely to be out in the fresh air, and for the sun to be shining was a bonus.
The only downside of it being bank holiday was the public transport, although things did go very smoothly for us, it did mean busses stopped running very early, which meant a long walk home, after a long day out. We were able to go a scenic route though, with a walk beside the canal, where we hadn't actually been for over a year.

This week I have achieved very little iin the crafting front. But I did manage to complete the dull task of sewing in the ends...

Today, the sun made an appearance again, so we decided to go out on our bikes. We haven't done this for a long time, partly because of the terrible weather, plus its very easy to get lazy!

I was a bit wobbly to start with, but soon got back in to the swing of it. Again, it was lovely to be out and about in the fresh air, though it was a bit hard going on the bum!!!


Green Lantern
In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan, played by Ryan Reynolds. Reynolds must master his new powers in order to ward off the threat from the intergalactic villain, Parallax.

Hobbit an unexpected journey
A band of wandering dwarves shows up one or two at a time. The goal? To hire poor Bilbo for a quest that entails defeating a dragon and recovering a treasure. Along the way there are adventures with trolls and elves and The Battle of Five Armies. But most importantly of all he acquires a peculiar ring that has had and will have a great impact on the future of their world.
