21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 19- Gallery! on: July 16, 2014 08:30:08 AM
So to the first of mine and Burton's July camping adventures!  The first leg of our journey was to the village of Hay-on-Wye, famed for it's massive amount of bookshops and the literary festival held here annually.



Mmm sharing some iced coffee and a slice of courgette and lime cake with me after walking around the village, yummy!



Burton and I making a wish for nice weather for our weekend and following holiday!



Back at the campsite, conspiring with the fellas!



And playing cards with Spammy, Arnold and I



After packing up the tent we went to visit my parents who happened to be holidaying close by in a little cottage in the grounds of Brobury manor house and gardens.  Burton enjoyed walking around the grounds with us!



More piccies on Burton's blog of the Hay food festival, Hay castle, and piccies from Brobury grounds.  And the second leg of our camping holiday, to Cornwall, still to come!

Tomorrow, Mr. Toast and I are heading to my mom's for some canning (he didn't want to come with me today to help me finish packing up my classroom, which is understandable). I told him we would only be doing some pickling, so he wants to help out, since there is no jam or jelly involved Smiley

Oooh Mr Toast is getting to be quite handy at the old pickling, I'm defo going to have ask him for some tips when he comes home!!

Well Burton and I are back from our holidays so pictures to follow soon, there are tons so I'll just post a few on here and the rest on his blog Wink

Catching up on all the LV adventures I've missed whilst I've been away, I had hoped to be able to browse whilst on hols, but we didn't have an Internet connection, eek don't know how we coped!!!

On Sunday Burton came to support me running the Race for Life, which is a 5k charity event for Cancer Research.  Since in the past it has only been for women (I believe they do have men's races now too) it is themed pink, so Burton felt very comfortable!

I ran the race with my friend Kath and her friend Sam, though Kath darted off and left us in her dust!!



After finishing the race I let Burton try on my medal, kind of Wink



And tomorrow we're off on [camping] holiday so I shalln't be posting any photos for a couple of weeks, but I'll still be online intermittently!

Mr. Toast is just a teeny bit jealous of all of Burton's beer adventures! He's been accompanying me on student field trips, so no beer allowed for chaperones! I'll have to post a couple of pictures of the trips once I re-charge my battery.

But, here's a picture of Mr. Toast helping out on another day of canning (yesterday). Here, he's inspecting the dilly beans. We made some DELICIOUS apricot jam with maple and vanilla, so he made himself a bit scarce after the dilly beans...

Oooh I had to look up what dilly beans are as I hadn't heard of them, but they sound lovely, I'm really into pickled things atm!  And that jam sounds goooooooorgeous!!!! Shocked

I'm so happy Mr Toast got to go to the science and nature centre, that's just the kind of place we love to go to together!!  The picture of him being eaten by the clam is so cute Wink

Mr Burton came to mascot me at the Race for Life 5k this weekend so piccies of that soon, and then we're off on the first leg of our camping holiday on Thursday!!

The "passed out" Burton is one of the best pictures I've seen...

Rofl, could you tell that I wasn't far from that myself Wink

Gosh, 2 beer festivals in a row, Burton is going to think we're a bunch of drunkards over here!!  <whispers> we are... shhhhh </whispers>


Here Burton is trying his first cider of the day, and browsing the list to decide what's next!




This weekend the beer festival was at one of our local pubs, The Aviator which is at Staverton Airport so Burton got to watch lots of aircraft going up and down.




Soaking up some of the booze with a nice dog, lol!




Burton says he's going tee total for a while now to try and detox, he's not used to all the drinking!!




The next day we had a bbq with Mr Loops' family.  Burton got to have more fun with the parrots...




... and played some word games with Mr Loops' mum and niece




More piccies on the BLOG
