Cloud, pale sunshine, cloud... Froze the standing water in my front garden last night.. Dry so far.  Supposed to be a clear day tomorrow.  It stayed fine, though overcast, for Sunday just gone for the open-air Food Fair down Gwydir Street.  Not bad either.  Several stalls selling cheese and accompanying 'stuff' - Spanish had salami sausage etc, French had quite a good selection [bought some circular creamy 'blue' style, very nice and some lovely little dried figs] and a large bakery stall.  i love them; they make me happy!  There was another cheese, bought some excellent Gorgonzola.  Several sweet vendors, cakes, cookies etc. Also meat pie/finger food and a pizza stall - with oven!  Fresh 10" for £6.50, who could resist?  i had a smoked ham one with mushrooms, olives and usual tomato & cheese.  i took it home and ate it.  Delish lunch treat.
Some piccies for you...  the last one is some of our [Her Maj's!] swans on the canal here in Cambridge.. Whole load of juveniles with presumably their parents, nice to see.  There was also HEAPS of students trying out for rowing, ladies too - one of the juveniles nearly got side-swiped!  Stupid foreign student was walking his dog - without a leash - so when they reached the swans, it attacked the nearest one!  Bit of a kerfufle as it got tangled in some boat ropes but it got away unharmed, thank heavens!  i wanted to slap said-student...

i had actually made a joke with the boy as he passed me, about saddling his dog, as it was a BIG dog!

When I win the Lotto I want a house incorporating most of that merchandise especially the octopus. :) Some of those cartoons are LOL funny...thanks for sharing. :D I want to beat up the guy with the dog...I must learn to curb these violent tendencies. :p

Not unless I win big on bingo! A lady this week won 112 grand at 'our' bingo so it can be done or so I keep telling myself. :D I sit there sometimes thinking "I'm sat here crossing off a book of numbers, am I mad?" but there is something alluring about it. :D
