So this year I entered my 1940's hat and was delighted to see I got another yellow ribbon :
The lady that came first and second has entered the most detailed lace crochet blankets I have ever seen - beautiful!
Also at the fair there was Best Bull 2010 competitions on, and some of the bulls were HUGE!! we joked about how we thought this one was on steroids! ... What do you think?
Look at the muscles!
This guy was adorable!
All the men at the fair seemed to be huddled together at on end on the field, when we got down it was easy to see why, A Vintage Car Show!
There was lots on this year, much more then last year and all the kids seemed to be having a blast, after the Bonnie Baby awards my Brother and Sister decided to go on some of the rides and I had such fun watching them and laughing at their terrified faces while taking photos! (maybe that's my evil streak coming through)
Ant, the faster the ride, the better!
Ant and Shauna
All the kids, looking dizzy!
Half way through the day we met my in-laws, mother in law Elizabeth, father in law Thady and sister in law Milo with her boyfriend Craig - Talk about family day out!
the two mothers, my mum Trish in the red and my mum in law Elizabeth in the purple
It was so windy at the fair but still warm, Little did I know I was getting badly sun burned :( the next day my arms were on fire.

We walked around and stopped to look at the dog show and horse show, some of the dogs were so cute, we even saw a terrier wearing a tutu! Morgan was so at home with all the pups, he really wants a dog, but with us renting a bungalow and already having two cats and two turtles the time is not right,
Morgan and Shauna LOVED the dog show
Does my bum look big in this?
Which dog is your favorite?
It was such a hot day, and while we were in the craft tent, Shauna went really weak and went into a faint, once outside she was back to her usual self but to cheer her up I treated her in getting her hair wrapped, this woman was wrapping hair in wool and the inner child in me really wanted one :)
When the fair was finished I collected my ribbon and cash prize and we all sat in a hay field having a picnic of KFC chicken, chips with garlic sauce and coke which my mum and dad kindly got for us, the perfect ending to a lovely day, Life cant get better I thought - but then Shauna showed me the lovely painting she did of me
Our day was lovely and I was so proud to have won a ribbon but I was shattered! and so happy to see my lovely little bungalow again
After a hard and busy day today at work I was feeling very sorry for myself, my sunburn was hurting and all I wanted was a shower and to veg out on the sofa, what a lovely surprise to have a package waiting for me from Carmen from the Ravelry group RAK, She sent me colourful crochet hooks, patterns and a cute selection of buttons!
So how did you spend your weekend? I would like to thank everyone who takes the time and reads my posts and leaves comments - I find it so rewarding and wonderful, Thank you
Love, Neen x
