What a fab weekend we had. It was Riccall Carnival, lots of things to do and see. As parking is pretty limited up at the community centre, the organisers put on a double decker bus to pick up the villagers and take them to the fair - what a brilliant idea.
Henrietta wanted her face painting, by the very talented Dawn Smith
Who turned my daughter into a beautiful .......................
Also at the carnival were some gorgeous vintage cars, Charlie liked the little red bubble car - and who could blame him
The weather was just perfect, which meant lots of villagers
My friend Helen had a stall selling her wonderful Phoenix Trading cards. These are just the most beautiful cards you can buy. Visit her here to see more: www.phoenix-trading.eu/web/helendrye
Charlie won what I thought was an owl on the raffle - he quickly informed me it was a baby penguin, still not convinced.
On Sunday, we packed up a picnic and headed for the village green, where there was a live singer, rides for the kids, drum playing - dont ask, you can just see my two in the bottom left of the photograph - Charlie has an orange top on and Henrietta has a black vest top on
The kids really enjoyed themselves, it was such a wonderful weekend. Its great when the village comes together like this - I really cant imagine living anywhere else.
