So typically English

On Monday which was a Bank Holiday Sue and I went to a local country fair at a place with the lovely name of Oaks in Charnwood.
We really enjoyed it as it was so typically English. It wasn't a fair like a circus just local people with tents etc showing local arts and so on. I don't suppose the style has changed over many years so it was a bit like going back in time.
In fact for Sue it really was going back in time. The local Girl Guides had a tent showing how the movement had progressed over the years. Whilst looking at some old uniforms Sue suddenly said that looks like mine from when I was a girl. Guess what? On looking at it further it WAS her old guide uniform.
A few years ago Sue actually ran a guide company and at one event she gave her old schoolgirl guides uniform to another leader for an exhibition. Sue had totally forgotten about this and had often wondered what had happened to her old uniform.
Interestingly enough the guiders there didn't know the history behind the uniform as the name tag inside was in Sue's maiden name so Sue was able to tell them all about it especially as there was her old journal there and 'photos of her at some event.
It just goes to show that you don't know when your past will catch up with you!!
I'm still getting on well with my internet business. My list is now growing well and I'm getting even more visitors to my website
Thought for today:- Be nice to everyone as further down the line you may have to rely on them!
Joke for today: Advice for single girls, Don't look for a husband, look for a batchelor! Boom boom.
