Fun places that are bad for my waistline!

We went to St. Giles' Fair, which was slightly quieter than usual due to 'inclement' weather!

Prior to going to the fair, we went out for pizza. We asked for some chopped mozzarella or avocado for Tabby. And they brought out this: baby-food Pizza Express style (it was quite a big plate, and they didn't charge us for it!).
We visited Aunty Sox in London, who took us to Chocodeli which is one of the best chocolate shops ANYWHERE! Here we are pondering which ice-cream to have:
The train that you can see above Ken's head was actually moving round the shop - how cool?

So pretty!

An 'in-tents' experience

Well, we've been spending a lot of time outside: I had some plastic closhes for keeping the slugs away from baby plants, but the children decided they were space helmets!

We also decided that the tents could use an airing!
So, to check we had all the bits and pieces, and that nothing was broken or damaged, we set them up on the lawn.
I should really have chosen a dark night with the rain lashing down. Some how it seemed just too easy pitching the tents in the back garden on a sunny summer's day!

Tabby has a particular penchant for giraffes.
So you can imagine her excitement when we found out that the Cotswold Wildlife Park now has giraffes!
In other news; the other day while in the bath, Guy informed me that he'd found the brain (I think he meant vein) in his male appendage! Of course, I'm pleased he's identified it early - a lot of men I know are still doing their thinking with 'that' brain!
