The 179th!

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's roses!



Aren't they just lovely?

This morning the Hubster was out early messing around with a white ball and a metal stick once more, I headed off to the garden centre to spend my Derby winnings. Took all of 30 seconds!

Then me, Hubster and Radders headed off up to the 179th Rutland County Show, we walked the main part there, very good idea, we moved quicker than the cars queuing for miles to get in.

First public event the Radders had been to. Little chap was a bit bewildered and spent the first hour clinging to Mummy with his tail between his legs.


I actually enjoyed being in the protective Mummy role, my little lad needed me and when you're a mummy being needed and knowing you can and you do comfort, is the best feeling in the world.


He soon got into his stride and enjoyed a bit of people watching, or was that eye candy Radders?

We had a lot of fun mingling, browsing and watching the events on show.

Lurchers, Ferrets & Falcons
Horses, Cattle, Sheep & Goats
Royal Artillery Motorcycle Display
Cottesmore Hounds
Vintage & Classic Cars
Leicester Tigers Skill & Fun

and

150 retail, produce & craft stalls!



Hilarious, the Jack Russel is whooping the Greyhound!
Grubs up for Sam, Nobby and Susie!
The Cottesmore Hunt and Hounds
 

Look but dont touch Hubster!






We won, Sparkling Pineapple & Lemongrass Cocktail 4% volume! We brought it home only to submit it again one day into a tombola of the kind we won it from, no doubt. However, all for a brilliant cause.

Our county motto is Multum im Parvo, "much in little". For the smallest county of England, Rutland certainly packs a lot into little. Quite proud to say I live here today and everyday.

Well done Rutland, it was a great day and the weather was kind................at last!

A l'annee prochain
