This one ?  :)


Really enjoyed wandering around the Old Town Gardens again this afternoon, great atmosphere, good food and plenty of entertainment.

I found myself chatting to a bunch of blokes who'd travelled down from the Midlands who said the Swindon Mela is fast becoming the event by which others measure themselves.

I don't think the lack of parking affected attendance too badly, but I'll ask Mina. 

Fingers crossed eh!.

I had a stall there in the Health Zone- a lovely setting for us-  with squirrels throwing nuts at us from the trees above us. I renewed some old acquaintances and met some very interesting new people. 

Thank goodness the weather held for most of the day.

I got 10 minutes off to have a walk round- and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Already planning next year's and will bring a friend so I can get to buy some of the lovely things for sale.

Buggers parked in Kent Road and remained unmolested by the chunky monkeys in the orange sbc van.

Praps they were on poo patrol, or border duties, or taking digi photos of smokers.

I am not attending the Mela until I can play the bloody didgeridoo which I unaccountably bought last year.

Glad it went well. I think it is a Good Thing.
Sometimes I think you have to march right in and demand your rights, even if you don’t know what your rights are, or who the person is you’re talking to. Then, on the way out, slam the door.
