#LivingArrows – Gala Day 24/52 (2019)

Each year, a nearby village hosts an annual gala which we usually take the children along to for the day. Although we weren’t expecting to be present this year, our plans altered at the last minute thus, we got to go to the Gala after all.

We were quite lucky as we had been forecast bad weather for the weekend, but thankfully Saturday stayed pretty dry and fairly warm. The kids ran around for an hour or so, visiting each stall and being sure to empty our pockets in the process, they had such fun though which is exactly what weekends are for.

#LivingArrows - Gala Day 24/52 (2019)

I must admit, I wasn’t entirely convinced that parking our brand new Mini on the grass was such a good idea, it’s so low to the ground that I wasn’t sure whether I’d get stuck or worse, damage the car. Given that cars were strewn here, there and everywhere, it left us no other option. It was quite nice to see our little Mini parked up on the grass though, it reminded me very much of when my Nana and Grandad would take me out to the caravan site in their Mini and park up on the fields.

We have many ‘Mini Adventures’ planned for the summer which isn’t all that far away now, not that I’m counting down the days…

Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
