Chocolate Production

These are old educational slide rolls in tins and plastic cannisters I bought today from the boot sale at Chervil or is it Chevron? The biggest in the North West they reckon. Huge queue of traffic trying to get in- we waited 20 minutes to reach the cowboy with the money bucket.
Very hot and sunny. Quite pleasant first of all down the far end withmthe bouncy castles and bouncy toilets. Room to walk and browse in the wider avenues of cars and stalls but later - further up it got very packed and the rows were narrower causing congestion and feelings of confinement and aggro. Glad to elave then as it was so warm and needed a drink badly.
I did get a couple of DVD's too- the first series of Spaced which i have on video but can now get rid of. Also old creaky sci-fi film coincidentally called "It Came From Outer Space" but not about 30 somethings living in flat in London, more like green slimey somethings plummeting to earth and taking over the minds of the inhabitants of a small USA town.
Hazel bought some rusty hair curlers and two large metal cash/document boxes.
Archie has been out all day but is now back and strumming his ukulele.
We are thinkingof having a bar-b-q as the weather is warm and we havent had one for a while. I have de-thawed the salmon steaks.
Hazel has been tidying the wood shed. She found evidence of mouse activity - chewed plastic bags- droppings etc.
Nice to sit outside and drink lemonade and have our lunch.
Time to go and skewer some veg and haloumi for the kebabs.
