Instead, we visited Avebury, where they have a bigger (but less impressive) stonecircle.

Keep poking Wink. I'm just waiting for my dad to give me an update on the afternoon, and I'll probably upload in a couple of hours.

*suspense*

OMG!! I want to see that! The suspense is killing me! *pokes, pokes, pokes*

Dee has been just wonderful this week.  I have had the worst batch of luck this past week, and have been unable to do any of the things we promised her we would do.  It had made me a most depressing hostess, but she has been so sweet about it all!  She has been snuggling with me and making sure that I don't cry too much. 
She keeps reminding me that even though we missed the zoo, we are going on a cruise in a couple of weeks and that there will be a wedding as well. 

She forgave me the zoo, and said that I should pull myself out of this funk.  So I am trying!

I am going to update slowly on my two holidays, because otherwise it'll be overkill. For the weeks to come, I've got nothing special on my list, so what better than to fill the gap? I am going to dance at a big festival tomorrow. Taradance has been asked to do a one hour show to open the festival weekend. The theme of the night? Ireland... With fireworks... Guess who's coming with me Tongue?


And so we left Europe (we boarded in Calais, France) for the UK. The sun was just up, it was a glorious morning. I wish I felt better back then... I don't want to to dwell on it, not can I really explain it, but my trip to the UK was not always fun.


Those are the white cliffs of Dover! With, very tiny and not very visible, Dover castle on top of it all.


First stop, on our way ot Bath, Windsor Castle. We had to wait a while before we got in, having to pay a significant amount of money and walk through metal detectors and all that. Windsor Castle, after all, is the Queen's favourite place...


Finally, inside! Can you spot my little friend? Oh, and you cannot see it on this picture, but the flag is out. Indicating that, yes, the Queen was at the castle when we were there. So close!


Resting...


Esme-Alice didn't like this, being locked out from that nice juicy lawn, but I told her that we are not significant enough to visit the Queen. Alas!


And this was strange... Look close, look very close. See that figure in bright pink, with the hat, wandering along the houses? And that man next to her, in an official uniform? Could it be the Queen? It will remain a mystery forever, but let's say, we DID see the Queen Wink.


Resting on the grass, alongside Windsor Castle. Beautiful day! Esme-Alice was too thrilled to sleep, so my nap was, well, pretty much non-existant.

So much for our first day, Sunday. Of course, we saw muuuuuch more. We want inside Windsor Castle (no pictures allowed Sad) and visitid Queen Ann's doll house (also no photgraphing allowed). Amaaaaazing stuff! I never saw a doll house that big and so obviously built for adults. Loved it!

Next update, Averbury!

Lilibet, how was your dance at the festival? What the whole festival Ireland themed?

We had no big trips last week, but Trevor did help me crafting a bit.


Zentangled writing paper for my penpal.

And today we made toothpaste, I never tried that before, so I'm really excited!


The recipe I used:
- 3 tblsp organic coconut oil
- 1 tblsp baking soda
- 1 tsp sea salt
- a few drops essential oil pepermint

It looks and smells really good!

Monday we'll go on holliday to France and in this small village we won't have internet access. I'll be back (hopefully with lots of pics) on may 5/6.

Oh well, better come clean...

We did not dance. There was no festival. We were not invited. Not until the 27th of July, anyway... Our manager (my brother, *ahum*) mixed up the dates. Great fun... *sigh*
We had to drive to the seaside, which means it took us an hour and a half. For nothing...

At least we saw the sea again, and had a great meal with the dancers, but still...

Oh drat Lil, that must have been a major letdown! *HUG* I hope you didn't miss any events because of the presumed festival. Somebody should shake your brother and tell him that he won't get away with this just because he has a pretty face (which he has, your brother is a handsome man, I'd dare to say it runs in your family, pretty lady  Wink ) and he should make it up to the lot of you. I hope you got to enjoy your day at the seaside nonetheless, I've never found a trip to the shore a punishment.

You're too kind, you Wink.

No, we didn't miss any other events, because cureently four of our dancers are on their way to a small workshop in our own little village. The only thing is... If only it would have been a DAY at the seaside, that would have been awesome, true. But I'm talking about an evening in De Panne... An evening. We left here as soon as I was done teaching (16.15) and arrived there shortly before 7pm. To perform at 8pm, if there would have been a performance, that is.
*sigh*
Oh well... We caused quite a stir there, I hope they will still welcome us in July.
