Picnic basket dusted off after its winter hibernation, the first outing of the year is always special, sets the scene, we hope for sun but have had the normal range of British spring time surprises - rain, hail, thunder, lightening, this year, we hit lucky, sunshine was the order of the day.
Woodhall Spa Show, a field full of country delights, sheep, cows, farmers aplenty, dancing dogs and salsa experts, spinning wheels, sugar beet and ostrich burgers, candy floss and merry-go-rounds to add to the fun.
We decorated a cup cake in aid of the air ambulance, learnt about sugar and our county's important role in its production, tasted some local cheeses "wolds blimey" was our favourite, a creamy, blue and spent as always pound after pound indulging Os obsession with those 5 or 6 if your counting is not up to scratch ! tombola tickets, hunting for the 0 or 5 ending to win bubbles, tins of hot dogs ( still in date, if you're lucky ) wine or the illusive bottle of whiskey.
O scored tins of soup, fruit cocktail and in date hot dogs, he declared them a gift for his uni big brother, who I'm sure will appreciate them, this end of grant time.
