Local community festival

Our village, Ballygowan, had a community festival on Monday night. I think it’s a lovely idea, and was really looking forward to going with the kids and Ian. They had a little fairground set up, a tractor display, music, the usual stuff!

Unfortunately Robbie wasn’t very well, so I had to stay home with him, and Ian and Ricky went without me.

Now, to me, the rides they had in the little fairground area were shoddy in the extreme and every time I saw them, all I could think about was the pilot episode of Father Ted, where the fair comes to town. If you’ve never seen it- watch it, it is utterly hilarious! Apparently Ian heard several people asking each other if they had a Spider Baby… 😀

Ricky had SO much fun! He went on some of the rides (they weren’t up to much and therefore were fine for a three year old), jumped about on the bouncy castle for a while, played the “strongman bell” game, winning a massively irritating recorder which he is now insisting on playing in the house without cease, and ate his own body weight in chips and chicken nuggets!

I wish I could have gone with them. Next year, I will be sure to go!

EDITED TO ADD- if you aren’t familiar with Father Ted, and what I am talking about above, click on Phil’s link in his comment below to have a look! Thanks Phil!
