So my latest Blogging absence has been whilst we packed up and moved down to beautiful Dorset.
Chris' family are based in Dorchester and I studied and lived in Bournemouth for seven years, albeit 20 years ago now. It's where I met Chris and where we came back to get married, hence we are not totally unfamiliar with the area.
We have found a pretty little village in between Poole and Dorchester, so of course both Alfie and Luca are loving the country life, the new garden and the myriad of country lanes to stroll down.
Hailing from Liverpool and with an inherent Scouse sense of humor, my eyes have been constantly drawn towards posters dotted around here and there advertising the ... 'Dorset Knob Festival''. In fact I nearly crashed the car laughing the first time I spotted them.
For those not in the know, it turns out a knob in these parts is a little savoury biscuit made by the Moore's family for the past 100 years or so. These little knobs (fnar fnar) have formed the basis of a pretty fun annual food festival which has been hosted in the village of Cattistock for the past six years.
Of course we had to go and see what it was all about on Sunday and what a fantastic day we had. The weather was beautiful, there was lots of amazing stalls promoting local Dorset produce, much traditional Cyder drunk and a little knob throwing for good measure.
This is taken very seriously by a handful of participants who compete for the title of Champion Knob Thrower! The event has it's own set of rules one of which I broke - over arm throwing not allowed - once a cheat always a cheat and all that:-)
The few blog posts I have managed more recently have had an emphasis on clothes and fashion so for those readers who are interested my outfit was mostly made up of cute Hush purchases. I am wondering if their clothes have ever been worn to throw knobs before ? :-)
Although I've been somewhat absent in the posting department, I have been dipping my toe in and trying to read your blogs when I can. I've been loving following some of your daily outfit posts and thought I would join in again. This used to be something I did quite regularly then I started to feel a bit old and decrepit so I stopped.
I stopped because I started to feel like a bit of a dweeb, because Chris and I would fall out over his (lack of) photographic skills. Me always ending up with my chin sticking out or my eyes closed. Him telling me to stop sticking my chin out and closing my eyes :-) I was also running my own business and trying to resist the urge to shop, as well as having the baby and becoming a walking eye bag.
But I've missed it, so I'm taking it upon myself to join in the fun once again. This was a Saturday outfit.
