On Saturday I had my first 5k race. I received an invitation for a Run or Dye event and I loved that opportunity. As I decided to run now, it was impossible for me to fund raise for a charity in a short time.
I arrived an hour before the race at Cholmondeley Castle, in Cheshire. Hubby took pictures with the phone and it was better, as the dyes can get into the camera and for sure that’s not a good thing. Also, it’s not allowed to take pictures with a DSLR as they have professional pictures for sale after the show. I didn’t buy any as I think they are overpriced at £7.
There were a few stalls there with doughnuts, coffee and a Run or Dye stall with t-shirts, headbands and bags of dye.
I was invited to an event at Victoria Highfield to see their new ranges and have a chat about their pieces. I was delighted to attend as I love jewellery. There are two Victoria Highfield shops in Manchester, one in Stockport and the one in Didsbury, where the event was held.
Yesterday I talked about the livestock and other animals that I saw at Cheshire County Show, have a look here. In this post I’m going to talk about the rest and I’m going to start with the thing I liked most: shooting.
It was the first time I’ve tried it and I was incredibly good.
I’ve been to a county show for the first time and I loved it. Going to Cheshire County Show was such a great experience that I couldn’t make a smaller selection of pictures (60 in total), so I’ve decided to split the post in 2 parts. The first part is all about the animals, as they are the focus at this type of fairs. Tomorrow I’ll post about the stalls and interesting activities, including the horses.
Cheshire Agricultural Society was founded in 1838 having as an objective to encourage better farming methods thru competitions. The competitions are the same today as they were at the beginning. If you want to read more about the history of the Show, have a look on their website.
In the first Colourful Smoothie Challenge update I set some goals for the next 10 days and it didn’t go as planned. I wanted to make 5 savoury but I did only 2 as I’m not very keen on them. At least, they are more colourful for this update.
Africa Oye is an African festival in Liverpool, at Sefton Park. I found out about it from a friend and decided to go. Yesterday morning was cold and it rained, so I prepared myself with wellies, waterproof jacket and we headed to Sefton. The sun came up and I had to ditch the jacket and the wellies kept me too warm. The festival is free and it is very entertaining; it’s still on today.
