A Busy Few Weeks

It has been a busy few weeks, which has meant I have not had chance to sit down to blog anything.  My Birthday was on June 20th and DH took me out for lunch on our own, without the Boys.  It was great.  I don’t think you realise how much you don’t really talk to each other until you are on your own, because the Boys take up so much time.  We went to Loch Fynne in Nottingham and we had fresh fish which tasted wonderful.
The rest of the week was spent getting ready for Carnival in our Village.  If you have read any of my older posts from the previous years you will know how big an event this is.  DH is Chairman at the moment so a lot of things fall on his shoulders and the Boys and I also get involved.  It is great fun but a lot of hard work. 
Carnival Week began on Sunday June 26th with the crowning of our Carnival Queen with her Twenty attendants and one Crown Bearer.  Judging of the Scarecrow Competition which I organised.
Monday June 27th Junior Football Competition, Tennis Competition and Fun Dog Show which I organised with help from DH and Boys.
Tuesday June 28th Senior Football Competition and Walking Treasure Hunt for the Village.
Wednesday June 29th Duck Race in the brook which runs through the village.
Thursday June 30th Wild Wet and Wacky for the Teenagers (games with a lot of water involved!)
Friday July 1st set the park up for the big day on Saturday.
Saturday July 2nd Carnival Day.  We got down there at 6.00am and left the Park at 9.00pm!! What a day but it was great.  
Here are a few pictures of the Scarecrows on this post and I will post more pictures each day this week for everyone to see.
