Straw Bear

Great day at Whittlesea Straw Bear festival yesterday. Lots of dancing, lots of whistle playing, got a free chocolate from the Not Just Cafe when I went to buy an ‘Oh God, I’m two coffees short of waking up’ coffee, and the Sue Ryder charity shop was having a stock clearout, so I got a new winter coat for a pound.

Spot me here briefly at around 4.00, in a lime green wrap and red hat, playing for Ely and Littleport Riot, the red capped ladies with the red hankies (bathed in the blood of our enemies.)

DH is taking tomorrow off work so he can dance all day with Mepal Molly in the traditional celebration of Plough Monday, so for us normal life still doesn’t really resume until Tuesday.

What a good day you had! (Although I don’t understand why Sue Ryder was having a clearout which included a coat – in the middle of winter.) I’m pleased the sun shone for you, in every way.

It was great! And it was my first event since the iron transfusion. I suffered on Sunday after using muscles that hadn’t been touched since June, but it was so good to have the energy to dance again.
