A Cheesy Day Out

A few weeks ago we headed out to the Frome Cheese Show for a wander with some friends and allllll our kids.
My friend is SUCH a cow. 
Eeeekkk! *runs for cover*

One of my clients is Russian Dolly crazy – this stall would have been total heaven for her. The COLOUR melts my heart!

Not much longer and she will be too big for up on the shoulders. Slooowww down with the growing up thing Shan!

The view from up here is pretty amazing though.. Check out these stunt bikers.. That was HIGH HIGH up!!

We stumbled across this Brass Band – something about this makes me all emotional. It’s probably from watching the film, Brassed Off, one too many times. There’s a sweet clip of this little girl conducting in my short video at the end of this post.

And THEN. I found my car. I sat in every seat. Played with every button & smelt every inch of leather while no-one was looking.

Even Shan got a look-in…. Dave, Mommy WANTS this car for Christmas Okay?!

These hunting dogs were fascinating. We caught them nearly at the end of their display but you can see a couple of seconds in the video clip at the end of this post too! And if THATS not a grey day in England then I don’t know what is!

Of course Welly’s were an essential for some much needed puddle splashing.

Mmmmm… nom nom…. get in my bellllyyyyyy!!!!

If we can’t have a Range Rover, we’d probably be quite happy with one of these. I can see myself tractoring to school every day. YEAH!

Or a quad bike? I went quad biking in South-Africa – and I LOVED it. Need. Want. Love.

The sheer joy on these farmers faces watching a guy demonstrate this machine operated cow milking device had me in stitches. Pure appreciation here!

An Eco car. Very cool! But very pricey… Wowza’s!

My Sipho found herself this fabulous, 1-seater little bubble car.
Who needs parking spaces with this baby? You could totally park in the trolley bay with the trollies! Ha!

Now THIS was a cool idea… you can hire this bar for functions! They come and set it up in a big field (or venue of your choice) and it comes fully equipped as a pub with indoor seating, staff, lights, music, the works! Very very cool.

Of course I had to do a taste test. It would be rude not to.

We picked up some olives from the olive dude – olives, garlic and sundried tomato’s… NOM!

And of course my FAVOURITE cheese was on sale at less than half price. I could have bought 20 of these but as I’m on a HUGE diet, I only bought one. Go me.

All in all a fun day out with lots to see and do – plenty to keep the kiddo’s entertained too!
Ps…. If you also love  Ewan McGregor  the film, Brassed Off, you’ll love this quick clip 🙂
