Hope everyone had a good summer, so autumnal now and so cold, all I can think about is snuggling under blankets (crochet of course) on the sofa.

We had a great holiday, returned to the UK on the Thursday night, unpacked & repacked our van ready to leave for Shropshire on the Friday for......

A wicked little festival organised by my bro and sis' in-sin Charli' for their friends and family. They are on their 5th year now and it just rocks....

Friday night celebrations focussed on some serious partying to the DJ and Candycake Mountain in honour of the three birthday girls, Kit, Rachel and Christina



Saturday is the 'main event', lots of activities for the kids and lots of prep for the evening festivities.

It was very poignant this year as it was the first camperama without Chris (my bro' in law) who sadly passed away. He was much missed and in his memory we had a footy game on the Saturday and the winners trohpy was the Chris May Cup, not so much of a cup but a gravy boat. Chris was an amazing cook and his gravy legendary. 



As the day wore on the skies darkened, and as we say up north 'it was looking rum over't Bills mothers' roughly translated 'it looked like rain' so it was time to organise extra cover and move some gazebos, guess how many men it took to do this ??? oh and a dog !

Playing footie certainly worked up an appetite for the Hog Roast, provided with love by George the pig man, accompanied by a smorgasbord of salads, provided by the salad minions, carefully co-ordinated and organised by Fiona, Salad CEO, looking every inch the victorian kitchen maid.


Just as we started to eat, the heavens opened with monsoon like fury, I have never seen rain like it in this country, bouncing off the ground. It didn't take long before we were sloshing around glastonburyesque and had to abandon the field and take sanctuary in the pub.

We were so lucky that the function room in the pub was free and forever grateful that  landlord allowed our house band the ' Splintered Ukes' to set up in there. I have never seen a ukelele band and boy could they play, we were soon rocking it out to some funky tunes - check 'em out on uTube.


So a good night had by all, a quick packup in the rain the next day and sadly said our goodbyes - 'til next year.
