Did you notice I didn’t do a post yesterday? It was a long weekend right … and we were away doing stuff. And I was so busy doing (well, busy sitting and listening acually) that I didn’t get around to it. But today I am back on track.
And I introduce my ‘new to us’ picnic blanket that is lovely and thick and wooly. And it is nice and bright and fun – pink and blue and green and purple. I think it came to our house via Elise? And we used it for the first time and gave it a super workout over the long weekend at the Port Fairy Folk Festival (that was the ‘listening’).
In waxing lyrical about it however, I note that it definitely seems that ‘blankets don’t reserve places’. Who’d have guessed … but for some reason people are happy to move blankets … but don’t think to move chairs.
So, a note to any future Port Fairy Folk Festival attendees with kids in tow – don’t rely soley on the blanket, because in fact the chair/blanket combo is the go.
Anyway … we had a great time. And caught up with friends … and listened to fun music. And danced. And learnt some circus skills. And saw Sinead O’Connor (I REALLY loved her!!). Twice. Two days in a row. So glad we went!
So maybe we’ll see you there next year – picnic blanket (and chairs) in hand!
