Ducks and fetes.

Yesterday morning was a trip to the Jinney Ring Craft Centre near Droitwich. I've been there loads of times before but apparently we had to go there as they have a load a baby ducks running about and it seemed like a good opportunity to keep the kids occupied for a short while.

The craft centre itself is in a beautiful location, near a village called Hanbury and the associated Hanbury Hall.

After some of wifey's delicious home made soup dinner time, this time tomato with a hint of chilli, it was over to Dodford Village church fete.

As befits the size of the village it was a very small affair whose proceeds were in aid of the church fund. It was very well attended though and it was clearly one of the village social highlights of the year.

All in all a very restful enjoyable afternoon aided and abetted by some very co-operative weather. Wifey enjoyed herself too, sipping the worlds biggest Pimms all afternoon served to her by Richard the Gaffer of the Dodford Inn who was roped in to supply refreshments.

Nothing too fancy then, but it proves to me that simple is best.

  1. Nice pics, sounds like a great day - and it's made me want a Pimms like Wifey now!! I do like Pimms - especially when it's got strawberries in it.

    A scruffy mutts parade ... I know a certain pedometer-eating dog who would have fitted in well there!
