It seems forever since I have posted and not intentional. We came back from Vegas on the Tuesday and then we were away for our 1st 40's weekend from the Friday. Of course it was back to work on Monday and it has been very hectic as we are so short staffed with sickness and holidays. Anyhow I am here now and hope I haven't missed too much.
Here are some photo's from our weekend away. As always we had a great time and the weather shone for us too.
Every year for the 40's weekend here the people come in their droves. This year with the sunshine was no exception..
This year it was a Dakota for the fly past.
The lady in the red cape is wearing the uniform from the QARANC which was my regiment. I am in the process of trying to get the whole outfit together. They are though quite scarce.
Of course I found some woofies. This one was so friendly and loved a fuss..
Our friends with Coco and Nugget.
Our friend came for the day to have a look at the event and loved it. I think she will be back..
Of course we are reminded what the events are about and they honour our services from the war. In the church was a very poignant display..
A letter from a serviceman to his friends mum. Just after he wrote this he himself was killed in action.
I could not resist taking this lady. She was enjoying the sun on her face and sat with her eyes closed for ages just soaking it up. I loved how she was dressed and I think she could do it all the time.
This little evacuee was adorable with her little dog.
I loved his little doggy gas mask.
Of course I found a kitty or rather she found me and shared the butter and cream from my scone..
