Feeling Recharged

We've had a lovely weekend why is why I'm playing catch up, I'm on my two week holidays and hubby had the weekend off so we took off to Malvern in Gloucester and to the steam rally.

The weekend was hot and I did get a little sunburnt, it's surprising how quickly too but with my trusty silver shawl, hat and sunglasses I managed to protect myself.

There were lots of steam engines big and small and although oily and smelly the workmanship that goes into these beauties is amazing.  There was a huge selection of American war transport as well as a small amount of British, tanks etc.

We took off to the farmers field where there were loads of tractors and young men working the field, don't envy all that hard work in this weather but watching them was much preferable.

There were stalls selling whatever you could think of and we had to have a slushie but without the alcohol, food galore, strawberries yum but at the end of the day I was so glad to come home and sit down because there aren't many seats :(

So all in all a lovely time spent with hubby, the kids are at that age when they really don't want to go, I feel refreshed but am planning next weekends capers :)

Sounds like you had a good time Rachel. Some times little breaks like these recharge us in magical ways :)

Very true..sometimes all we need for relaxation is a quality time with Family. Nothing more refreshing ( recharging as u call it) than that.
