Yey my sis was here for the weekend. On Friday I called in work sick :) We had a walk in Fletcher Moss and it seemed so strange to be there so early in the day, a little like we were trespassing because it was so quiet ! We went to Pizza Express, where I had the Padana. Just as we were going out for a drink in the evening it started to rain...
And seemed to continue all night and into Saturday, the day of the 30th Annual Didsbury Festival. This started at 11am with a parade: Pepe did some barking when the marching band went past.
Here I am registering for the Dog Show; Pepe got entered for two rounds- Prettiest Female, and Best Puppy Just look at those prizes !
I couldn't get Pepe to turn around to look at the camera for her picture next to the sign, LOL Here we are in the ring for Prettiest Female
There was quite a large crowd, despite the terrible weather - if you zoom in on the pic you can see people's faces when they see Pepe ! Getting judged The winners- including Pepe! L-R; Katie, Phil, Brill Front- Pepe Champions!
It's official - we have The Hots here ! It is currently 21 degreesC in Manchester, and we had a lovely weekend :) It's so amazing, you just forget that it can be this nice.
Excitingly my sis is coming for a visit starting on Thursday (actually she's coming because she split up with her boyfriend)... I'm going to have to call in work sick on Friday as the holiday book was red ! And then on Saturday it's the Didsbury Festival! We've been for the past two years and it's always fun. We invited my parents over for the day last year and they enjoyed it too- but they're on holiday at the moment and are going to miss it this time.
But most of all the highlight of the Festival is... the DOG SHOW !!! Pepe is totally getting entered into every category she is elegible for and fingers crossed she will wipe the board :D
