Perhaps I’m just impossible to please, because normally I complain about the heat in summer, but I am beginning to get grumpy about the wet this time, and am wondering if I’m going to get out to any events at all this year.
Harewood was a mudbath. I haven’t made it to Tewkesbury for years because its so close to the International Medieval congress (which was great, but even there the jousting was cancelled due to wet)
On the non-reenacting front the Great Yorkshire Show was rained off, depriving me of the opportunity to eat my own wieght in free cheese, which I did get rahter grumpy about.
Kelmarsh was also cancelled this weekend – I didn’t go but by all accounts English Heritages usual spectacular lack of organisational skill resulted in some people spending two days trying to claw thier way out of the mud. ( I still have memories of that year when Hastings was like that)
And now Berkeley is rained off this weekend, hardly surprising since its on a water meadow, I know, but I had been really looking forward to it.
And after that I don’t have much time to go to stuff as I have events of my own.
