Where did the weekend go?!
Bearing in mind it was a long one, it went pretty quick… I’m not quite sure how 🙂
It’s been a bit weird on the weather front – we got drenched yesterday out riding, then 10 minutes later, it was bright sunshine again and less than two miles away, it hadn’t rained at all.
At least it didn’t rain today. We went to the Festival of Transport at Hellingly.
And it was really good. Loads of brilliant old vintage cars; the one on the left’s a Model T Ford:
I liked this old fire engine best…
There were also loads of amazing old machines and steam engines:
Poor bloke must have mis-read the label on that one and put it on too hot a wash…. 🙂
I loved the way the engines all had names. That one was Emma and it was powering a straw-baling machine which can’t have been much slower than modern ones.
It was nice to think that, as that was all farming land, they could have been baling straw like that, on that spot, for years 🙂
There were also fairground rides, including a proper old-fashioned roundabout:
I’m glad I was on the inside on that one so you can’t see the truly ridiculous face I’m pulling 🙂
It was all good but amazing how knackered everyone was by the time we got home!
I hadn’t had a huge amount to eat either; events like this not being renowned for their gluten-free eating options, so I had a HUGE plate of dinner. I like the way that sounds like I don’t normally eat plates the size of Kent packed with vegetables….
I grilled aubergine slices, then layered them with a mix of wilted spinach and vegan cheezy sauce… plus carrot and swede mash and steamed vegetable mountain… looks revolting, tasted great. Perfect.
Now I’m just looking forward to not setting the alarm tomorrow – hooray for weeks off!
Did you get up to anything exciting this bank holiday weekend?
