or from the museum which we'll be visiting tomorrow or Monday, depending on the weather.
In mid May there is an Antique and Vintage Fair at Stonham Barns (where I go for Sunday Car boot sale) which is close enough for a visit. I don't think it's a very big fair but as we don't get many Antique Fairs in Suffolk I'll probably go and have a look.
At the end of May is the 2 day Suffolk Agricultural Association Show in Ipswich. It's many, many years since I last went. What I like best is to watch the show jumping and the other events in the Main Ring. I'm not sure if I'll go or not, it involves an awful lot of walking but at least I do qualify for an over 60 reduced admission ticket. I shall think on it. Maybe if Colin is still going to hospital on Wednesdays and Thursdays he could drop me off at the gate, which would at least save me the long walk from the car park. I'm not sure I would want to drive up, I'd be bound to lose the car among the 1000's parked there!
Then on September 8th the Cycle Tour of Britain is having a stage through Suffolk. It's going by the end of the road...................where we used to live! Darn! BUT it will be going through the village where my sister lives and right by the end of their road, so maybe we could visit her that day to watch!
When the tour was in Suffolk - must have been about 10 years ago - I cycled a couple of miles to watch them - Bradley Wiggins included - flash by in a few seconds. Apart from the cyclists it was interesting to see all the other things involved with a stage of racing - the police, the team cars with spare bikes, the cameras etc. Although not as exciting as our friends experience of the Tour of France passing through their Essex village a couple of years ago.
Back Tomorrow or Monday
