We certainly packed a fair old amount into one teeny tiny (but gratifying) bank holiday! This post is well overdue but it was a busy old week with the first GCSE exam for my students, various VE day celebrations, voting and the usual nonsense……..
We then headed to a favourite park of ours that has also just opened a café so we wanted to support the opening. Actually, they had advertised real life Morris Dancers……actually dancing on May Day…….so I felt we ought to honour this tradition. I had a proper giggle when the Morris dancers approached Mr M, saying they needed a ‘younger generation’ of Morris Dancers! Unfortunately Mr M turned them down on the grounds that this was tantamount to child abuse because they’d have to grow up watching him dance with bells. That aside…. ‘The Lakes’ café is a lovely addition to our neighbourhood, exactly what it needs. We had a couple of beverages, bopped to the folk music and had a walk around the lake before heading home. The café has opened a little garden next to it, a pretty community led garden which I am looking forward to spending more time in with Pip and Bean in the future.
I felt that we really relished this bank holiday, my new motto: pack it in, live life xx
