After a long day shopping on Saturday we took him greyhound racing at Coventry on Saturday evening, once again he was shouting loudly for his chosen greyhound, if it won we gave him pretend winnings, just as not to encourage him into gambling, LOL.
I had a couple of nice winners on the trio and we actually came back with more money than we went with, result.
On Sunday the was a large family gathering for a meal at The Farmhouse in Coventry.
What a superb place, serving either Indian or English meals, I had the korma, the best I have ever had, Keith had the tikka sizzler, made him reach for the water after the first mouthful, but said it was the best he had ever had also.
Between the 13 of us we all had different meals, all served at the same time and all hot, well done to everyone at this really good restaurant.
To round it of Jake had a Fireman Sam birthday cake, that was tasty too.
Excellent weekend, just need a rest to recover now,LOL

Visitors had come from far and wide, we spoke to people from the USA and Norway who had made the trip especially to take in the visit.
The young girl from Norway had been treated to the trip by her grand mother as a birthday present, we really felt sorry for because she fell in love with one of Maurens cats, saying she would have a look around before making her mind up. Sorry to say that the cat was adopted just after she left our stand, but she took it very well and said she had had a wonderful birthday present, and really enjoyed the show.
We also managed to chat to some of our regular visitors from the UK, travelling from Cheshire, Birmingham, and many part of London.
A long and very tiring day, but well worth it.
Keith will be updating the website over the next couple of days, when he has had his beauty sleep and recovered, LOL
Thanks again to everyone we met.

Always a very nervous time, wondering if anyone will adopt a creation, if you are coming along please come and say hello, always great to put a face to an email address.
For all our website visitors, thank you so much for all your patience, as I have been making new creations for the show.
A wonderful day at this years Bucks County Show, I have never seen so many people there, and the variety of animals was fantastic. A special well done to those involved in showing the cattle, my favourites, their day must have started very, very early, and the quality of there charges was just fantastic.
A quintessential English village fete, held at Dinton, a small village near where we live, on Bank Holiday Monday.
Well done to everyone concerned, a wonderful afternoon of fun and some great homemade cakes, and raising much needed funds for local areas.
The fete was officially opened by Tony Hadley.
