By this title I don’t mean the kind of long weekend that takes you to the seaside or a trip to a new city, oh no dear friends, I mean the kind of weekend that just never seems to end!
Recently my job changed (you may or may not remember me telling you) and I am now in Events & Marketing, whereas before it was purely Marketing with a pinch of Events every now and then. Part of my new role involves being a lot more involved in the organisation of events in my home town and this weekend was our annual show, which takes place over two days at the beginning of September.
The show is always well attended and is set in ‘my park’ which is one of my favourite places in the world (and where I would like some of my ashes spreading…sorry if that’s morbid…but I do) and has all sorts of activities throughout the weekend. There’s a fair, stalls of all kinds, a Diversity Festival, Horticultural Show, Vintage Vehicle Rally, Food Court, Fresh Produce & Craft Marquee, Jazz & Folk Marquee and loads more plus it’s free to get in…yes FREE I tell you!
The other girls in the Events Team work tirelessly the week before and over the weekend itself to ensure it runs smoothly and everyone has a great time. I helped out a great deal more than in past years and although it was very tiring I enjoyed every minute of it and even got to ride around on a golf buggy which was just fantastic! I am going to put a golf buggy on my wish list : )
Anyway, that was my weekend really, sun, fun, crowds of happy show goers and a bit of hard graft!
I hope the days since my last post have been good ones, enjoy the rest of this week and I will leave you with a few images I took last weekend…
I made the ugliest plant in our garden look almost pretty!
And finally, in my opinion, the prettiest flower in our garden right now.
Take care…Jane xxx
