Now that the rain has cleared away, I have secured a huge field for our jamboree ( courtesy of Farmer Giles as usual.) Bring camping gear, food, drink, and useful or decorative items.
No wives/ husbands/ partners/ toy boys allowed but you can bring a well behaved dog or cat ๐Ÿ˜
As always, in alphabetical order, and bring lots of things to do as we could be here for a long time.This is also a chatty time really, so say anything you like ( within reason๐Ÿคฃ)

I will start things off with...
Apple pie ( from M&S) as I have a bit of a thing about it at the moment, which is why I shall be mainly wearing elasticated skirts and chinos for this shindig.

Bettyโ€™s Barmcake and a slab of cheese. Dare not show my scarred and skinny legs, so shall wear leggings and oversized tunic, which will hide all the wobbly bits acquired over the years.

Hats! I have many different kinds to wow you all with, but the most useful ones will be a souwester, a woolly tea cosy one and a straw one bought in Spain 20 years ago.

Ice cream, I will bring my portable freezer well stocked with
Magnums and raspberry sorbet.

Kites! Design your own, with any luck we shall have a gusty day or two ( especially after all the food we have been consuming.)

EkwaNimitee Wed 23-Jun-21 15:00:42

Practical me will bring a shovel, for digging necessary holes. Assuming we are allowed to?
