August 15, 2005
Saturday saw a very wet village fete in Newbold on Stour – similar to a big bash in many ways – lots of people, lots of fun but lots of rain too.
I managed the coconut shy to great effect and we managed to get rid of all the coconuts by the end of the day. Not sure what I would do with half a bag of coconuts – sure that Casey could figure something.
What was nice was this was the first real chance to get into the swing of village life beyond the Aunt Sally team and conversations in the pub – very nice to see so many people giving time and coming along on what was really quite a rotten day. We all ended up pretty soaked, but I think most people enjoyed it.
Only downer was the rather large graze/shallow cut on my arm when picking up one of the signs and catching a rusty nail – lucky I recently boosted my Tetanus jabs in preparation for honeymoon otherwise I would have been looking for a walk-in surgery or a quick trip to A&E.
