    How I keep a straight face through all this is a mystery to me, but it brightens up the dullest of days

    Next time, don't forget to tell him about the turtle and elephants.

    I have been to the Fairport Convention festival at Cropredy for the last 3 days. The weather was rather warm and the crowd were possibly the most relaxed group of 20,000 that I have ever seen. All ages, enjoying an eclectic range of bands from electric folk to reggae to prog to acoustic folk via rock, Indy, musical comedians. No drunkenness though plenty of people drunk, very friendly and lots of laughter. I even saw my first pagan wedding. All good fun and I shall be returning next year.

    I ended up seeing a pagan wedding at Avebury a fair few years ago, it is the gathering on the right hand side of the photo

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    A new bakery has opened up recently in Lichfield, and I read online that they're something of an institution in the E Mids.
    We paid them a visit today and bought a pork pie, an egg custard, and a caramel donut.
    Our 'go to' for pork pies is the Walter Smith butchers shop, about 4 doors down, and sets the bar really high, so perhaps it wasn't a surprise that the Birds pie fell short.
    The egg custard wasn't a patch on the ones we bought in a family bakery in Conwy a couple of weeks ago, and the donut was just about on a par with Greggs.
    East Midlanders must be easily pleased.

    To be fair an egg custard in Conwy is a long pop down to the shops. I would suggest that you try one of their “elephants foot” - think of a large eclair filled with cream with chocolate on top. Apparently all high fibre and low fat. Honest. The vanilla slices are tasty too.

    When I said “think of an eclair” it worked. Good, eh? This eclair is somewhat larger than a standard eclair and is probably very bad for anyone who eats one.

    Just to add to everyone thoughts about me being weird. I don't eat chocolate.

    I'm just recovering from norovirus. First symptoms on Friday, full blown cleansing on Saturday and Sunday, managed to eat a little yesterday. On a plus point, my weight is now lower than is has been for several decades.
    There are four varieties in society: the lovers, the ambitious, observers and fools. The fools are the happiest.
