Saturday was going to be a rather boring affair, with nothing much occurring, but as the norm with my life we decided last minute to venture into town with my daughters, SIL, my princess and prince and visit the Oyster Festival!
Really this year it was just a fun fair along with a food festival featuring Oysters!
Princess loved all the fair ground rides, especially the big wheel Nannie took her on! Blimey it was high and very windy at the highest point! Yikes! Needless to say Princess really enjoyed the excitement and waved with both hands, however I held on to the security bar tightly and held princess even tighter!
I abstained on the aforementioned delicacy and chose to eat slow cooked ribs ( somewhat difficult with no cutlery & a sticky sauce!) followed by yummy Churros and a chocolate sauce dip.
Home to watch a film and chill.
Sunday had hubby and me out at a friends BBQ. Dining on steak, jacket potatoes and salad with a few glasses of fizz. Managing to dodge the rain in between eating and playing croquet. Have you ever played this game? This was the second time I have played this tactical game, although hitting the ball in the right direction was the hardest part for me!
Trying my best to gain a favourable result in the two games we played, which ended in third and fourth position - there'll be some practice needed so I'll be buying my own set for the garden! Next time I'm going to be ready to challenge the winner - lol.
Wearing the New Look Jumpsuit I wore for the 5 Over 50 Challenge, great for striding about in the garden, swinging the mallet back and forth and also warm enough for the overcast, wet weather that descended upon us Sunday afternoon.
We dined in Nandos - a reputable establishment the mainly only serves Chicken of varying degrees of spice! Steak and vegetarian options were also on the menu. This being my third visit I still had to have the menu explained to me by my son - ending up with a medium heat chicken burger with fries, with side dishes of coleslaw, grilled Halloumi cheese & avocado. I enjoyed this more than the first two visits and hopefully will know my way around the menu next time (probably not).
Here's what I wore the dine in Nandos - my son thought I looked very nice, but rather overdressed for Nandos - out local restaurant caters mostly for the university students. Anyhow, I don't 'do'
let's-just-go-out dress code, so they had to put up with me being 'over-fifty-MummaB-just-get-ready-and-go' lol.
You've seen my Dorothy Perkins Gingham cropped trousers - similar here, quite a few times in recent weeks. Pairing them with Three different coloured tops, I thought I would seek another option.
So how do you like my choice? Cobalt blue has to be up there with my favourite colours. It's a very flattering tone paired with dark hair and a tan - I have a few items in my wardrobe, and I'm always scouting for more!
You may recall seeing this pretty top when I wore it over my white linen trousers. This post I'd love you to see because of the striking Bluebells I stood amongst last May.
My youngest daughter took photos for me, we nipped outside of the pub to take them in this gateway to the church next door. She took about 20 shots but saw when we were back inside I'd somehow managed to trap the bottom of my top in the zip of my trousers! Back out we went to take another twenty or so shots - thankfully these were much better!
