Kingswood and Wotton parishes battle it out for the annual tug of war on Monday Bank holiday 25th May 2009. This was the first time for two years that the tug of war was completed on the scheduled day. The sun came out to play, there was no flooding and we all had a jolly good time.
Unusually Kingswood were able to field a full team of pullers, and the men won.
The women were not so successful and let the Kingswood side down.
The Annual Tug of War Match between Kingswood and Wotton Underwood. As is usual Tony Blair and Cherie Blair did not attend. Good thing, if their bodyguards had been on the Wotton side, then Kingswood may have lost. The men won for Kingswood, the women lost. The children\'s, not sure who won, there was an awful lot of cheating on all sides.
Snow scenes from our home over Christmas. Yes, we had a White Christmas with Selina and Phil staying over. One turkey demolished. Ok, is was not a big one, and now I am missing the turkey crumble and currey.
Invited to a lunchtime birthday party. It was Annieâ€™s **th birthday. Was meant to be a surprise, but one guest replied to Annie, in the belief that a husband could not be organising anything on his own. What a sexist thought. Weather not quite up to scratch, they even had the central heating on, and the Aga roaring away, but it didn't stop us all having a lovely time.
Norman and Valerie cam to visit, so we had a quick trip around Waddesdon Manor and Windmill Hill Archive Centre. The dining tables in the house were decked out in folded napkins, this was an exhibition called \'Folded Beauty Masterpieces in linen by Joan Sallas (A man)\'
