Trapped at home

That's because......

Its the weekend of the International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford, which is just a few miles up the road. Unfortunately Concorde no longer flies, we used to enjoy watching her fly over us every evening at 7.15pm on her flight to New York. Wonderful sight.

As you can imagine the road congestion, around here this weekend with all the extra visitors to the area, means we cannot get out or in to go anywhere by car or bus. The upside of this is we have some fantastic views of the air display for free!

I had hoped I would be able to go to the other big event taking place just over the county border in Oxfordshire, which is Art in Action a truly wonderful event, saw these sculptures there last year. Might see what the traffic is like very early tomorrow morning.

We're getting flypasts too, Maggie, but nothing I recognise yet. Village pub is having a music festival too, so we are getting a free concert as well as the airshow.

Wonder what time to expect the Red Arrows?

Glorious day, isn't it?

DH has gone to this - if I'd known you lived so close I'd have hitched a lift (not really - he left at 6 am!).

Lovely statues - I must visit Art in Action sometime.

We went to Art In Action for the first time this year - it was a great day out, the only trouble was one needed at least another day to to do it justice. I cant wait to go again, and not just for the Pimms.
