Winning at the Bowes Show
We went to the Bowes Show in Co Durham earlier this month. We had various entries in the preserves, baking and eggs competitions. I'm pleased to report we got 2 firsts, a 2nd and a 3rd.
Though I came 3rd in the 4 eggs competition, it was the one I was most pleased with. It attracted far more entries than the jams and getting it is more challenging - getting 4 eggs of the same size and colour and with no imperfections is no easy task.
Sadly, the weather was vile. It was tipping down and the field rapidly turned to mud. The rain kept the crowds away.
Dad didn't bring his boots so is carefully plodding around the mud as he leaves the exhibition tent.
