British summertime strikes again!

Very disappointed this evening - the Slaley show has been cancelled!

For anyone who didn't see my previous post, the Slaley Show is a tradition in the village where I grew up - a village fete where farmers show off their animals and people compete in everything from photography, and crafts to sloe gin and flower arranging. It should have been on this weekend.

It takes place in a big field on the edge of the village. Unfortunately, this year the weather has been so bad over the last few days that the field is apparently pretty much a mud bath and there's more rain due tomorrow so no chance it'll get better in time for saturday.

Such a pity, but at least there's still my mums sloe gin to look forward to.
