We were manfully and skillfully punted by Captain Smallwood
Rachel and C-B were our punting partners. Our puntners.
Artemis and Edward hired a rowing boat and caused carnage
Jeni got attacked by strange flying creatures
Rachel did a bit of blinking while Bethan posed
I took charge of the bubbly
We fed Frazzles to the ducks. I got bitten by an eager and evil pale duck.
After all the punting excitement, we went home via Bethan's grandparents' house in a nearby village. We got fed delicious Welsh cakes and tea, and we had a super exciting time riding up and down on the Stannah stair-lift. Seriously the most fun I've had all year so far...!
I rode it up to the top...
And little J rode it back to the bottom, where a Revlon lipstick awaited her on the bannister!
For this watery, stairlifty adventure, Bethan was in a lovely dress you can't see, and a classic tan mac she stole from her Mamgu many years ago, Jeni wore a delightful Horrockses frock; and I'm in an utterly amazing 30s housedress which was a most unexpected and unbelievably lovely present from my dear friend Miss Matilda of Able Grable fame. Do help me repay her kindness by visiting her site and treating yourself to something nice! :)
In other news I am doing my first 5km race this Sunday. My parents will be there to cheer me on and take amusing photos of me crossing the finish line. I am quite excited, really! Even though I came face to face with a TERRIFYING STAG on my training run today... ok it was more of a smallish Roe buck, but I've never pegged it so fast in the opposite direction... those antlers look dangerous!
Until next time...
