It was such a lovely day yesterday and our street party was a great success.
It isn't a very big street at all but it was surprising that none of us really knew each other well apart from our immediate neighbours. I am so please Nij and I decided to try and get people together because there was a real sense of community and we all enjoyed it so much we are planning other events.
Our short little road lends itself beautifully to it as we have a turning head surrounded by heath where we can set up and not bother the road at all, though we did put a traffic cone someone 'happened to have lying around' a little way down the road LOL .
No-one in the road has young children - the youngest are in their twenties - so it was an all adult affair and very nice too. The man opposite had two proper flagpoles and flags which he put up, we added a lot of bunting and a big banner style flag and everyone just brought their own tables, chair and food ... oh and drink. Nij took his PA system out so we had music, a bit of a dance and lots of fun. And we all had such a nice time getting to know each other.
We had bbqs going
And we even had our own flypast!
And the great news was it was just a couple of steps home at the end of the night.
Can't wait till the next one now.
We took botht he CFH to the vets this morning. We were really worried about Kira as the small coloured flecks she had in her eyes have become huge and joined up and whilst it could just be iris pigmentation the internet had some horrid stories of cancer and that as an indicator so we took her to be checked. Our vet is sure it is OK but has referred us to an eye specialist for a second opinion to put his and our minds at rest. We so don't want her to loose her eys. We also had Fiki checked over as he still can't jump, but his spine is a lot freer and he was doing well (and he was such a good boy at the vets, just sitting so nicely on my knee all snuggled in)
I have a new page to share today made with Dawn Inskips new Snakes and Ladders collection kit.
