My Bank Holiday Weekend

I hadn't a chance to write much last week as things were so hectic and i was preparing to go away for the weekend. My mum and I took ourselves off to Caldicot Castle for a Re-enactment called Fortress Wales Event. A multi-period show.

It was a beautiful weekend set in a stunning setting.

To the Left is one of our Giant friends, he marched around collecting donations for Help the Hero's which was the charity of the Event

Below are one of the group winners of the weekend, they won the best living history camp prize

And above we have our group (some members missing) We were the winners of the Best Re-enactment group of the weekend!!!!
We did some dancing on the Sunday evening to some 40's music, i even had a go at the jive- and parts of my dancing actually resembled it. My mum was grabbed by one of our friends and made a very good attempt at her 1st jive in around 30 years. And after that we went back to camp for a sing song around the fire. We had some old favourites, some new songs and some very funny ditties.

the weather held up for us until Sunday when it decided to rain in the morning, clear for a while and then throw it down in time for packing up- nothing new there really. Overall though we had a great weekend, and our drive there and back wasn't as long as we had thought. The traffic was with us in both directions so we made reasonable time getting there and home again. I decided on the way home again i would really like to learn to Jive so i have made thaqt one of my To Do things. I will look up where i can have lessons and the cost of it.
