With the Peterborough Heritage Weekend making its appearance on the lawns of the Palace and Cathedral precincts it reminded me that it must be time for an anniversary! I can't believe that it's been three years! Three years since I pressed the publish button and out into the ether I went. What a journey! My blog has taken its twist and turns and has taught me an enormous amount, along with meeting so many lovely people along the way through blogging. So, thank you for following along and leaving comments, it's made it all worth while! But, let's get back to why you are really here - back to the Heritage Weekend! I have taken you here back in 2012, 2013 and 2014, so let's have a look around in 2015.
The Bishop's Palace garden had been taken over with tents containing Romans and Tudors...
... and horses!
The re-enacters were more than happy to pose again. I do love the way they play to the camera but also have a wealth of knowledge on the era they are acting.
Over in the Deanery Garden tents were up here too...
... and little nooks and crannies, such as this archway...
Up on the hill in the Deanery Garden, we stood under the canopy of the new leaves and then, "Is that rain?" Not the sprinkling of showers promised but an almighty downpour! Out came the colourful umbrellas to shelter (guess who didn't pack theirs?)
We stood under this thick canopy until the water started to run down the leaves on to us and the ground below.
The feathers in caps were dripping.
The Tudors were sheltering with the chaps from World War I/II.
And the jousting area was a lot soggier than when I took this shot earlier!
Now believe me, there is nothing I like better than walking in the rain, it makes my heart so happy, but I do need the comfort of a good welly boot, a kagool and a colourful umbrella and I was sadly lacking in all three departments! My straightened hair was now in frizzy ringlets and my eyes looked as though I had been to an Alice Cooper convention... time to go unfortunately, otherwise people would have thought I was part of the show! Unfortunately, we sadly didn't stay for the jousting.
Once cleaned up and presentable on the train, it was time to do a little bit of shopping for an eagerly awaited lady! (All will be revealed soon dear Readers).
It's going to be a busy week next week, including a visit to Bletchley Park, home of the code breakers during WWII - I very much doubt that Benedict Cumberbatch will be there though! However, the highlight of the week will be getting to know the new addition to the family who as you know, will be so loved and cherished in our house.
WE CAN'T WAIT!
Mr Teen and Hubby will go to collect her a couple of days earlier than planned while I finish up at work and then it will be happiness and laughter once more in the Sweetbriar Dreams household. The carpet has been rolled out to greet her!
Until next week dear Readers, have a wonderful Sunday and week and thanks so much for following and commenting as I twist and turn my way through Blogland! I am so happy that you visit me and my little journeys each week ♥
