Today I joined around 30,000 others to attend the huge agricultural show held in Hamilton city. Fortunately for me they provide a "park and ride" service which made life much easier. Fifty acres of display site is laid out in 'roads' and a map is provided but believe me it is easy to get lost:-)
I watched the Contestants for Rural Bachelor of the Year cook a breakfast as part of their series of challenges. Some of them produced edible and attractive plates of food. The also-rans were obvious!
Most of them had mothers and no doubt grandmothers in the audience so votes were guaranteed.
These ladies sitting in front of me were probably in the grandmother category. I was taken with their impeccable elegant hair styling.
After such a tiring day I need some hardanger stress relief ;-)
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
