Heelan Coos and veni burgers!

What a Sunday! df and I went to a farmer’s fair and had a great time … there were highland cows (heelan coos), goats with udders as large as a cows (.. almost), veni burgers (crafted from venison meat), fresh fruit ice creams, wood chopping, equestrian and the traditional flower, vegetable, cake competitions …..
The highlight? A New Zealand record for a giant pumpkin …333.3Kg. Quite grotesque really and not my favourite vegetable!

Reading your blog is like entering a world I shall never inhabit, Omykiss. Giant pumpkins! Tiny revolving balls in the immensity of space! Dhal! Preponements!

I'm not sure what it's all about, but I can't wait for you to start adding pictures. Hope you don't mind, but I've added a link to your site from mine...

Hello! Thanks for visiting my site.

I love the way you scots say 'Highland Cows'. *giggle giggle* Sounds like a ripper farmer's fair....
