Thursday Thoughts

Welcome to my Thoughts on a Thursday........

I was really looking forward to going to Caldicot Castle.

I splashed out a little; bought myself an eating knife, bowl and cup and a cloak and a belt.

I got sick - I mean, really sick. Threw up all Saturday night and started again Sunday morning. Then again on Monday. I walked to the toilet block at 3am Saturday night and managed to puke three times on the way and twice on the way back - and the toilets were only a couple of hundred yards away!

Three days later I am just starting to get back to normal.

Not Vintners food, honest. Not the booze (just a couple of cans of cider!). I put it down to a bug as it's been hanging around for a bit now.

Caldicot was disappointing because it was a 'plastic camp' - not 'Living History' specifically. Lots of pretend re-enactors and lots of hangers-on.

And I was too poorly on Sunday to put my kit on.....

I have just received my application pack from the Company of Chivalry - or as MB called it my 'Wenching Pack'!

But...............Am I going to join??

I hope you are feeling better.

Something similar happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I am normally quite robust with food etc but was rather ick for an evening after something managed to disagree with me. I hate to admit I had also been drinking some bubbly stuff so I didnt really get much sympathy.

And joining the Company. You already have a Palace, a few more knights to brighten the place wouldn't go amiss?

I really am very sorry to hear about how you feel. Hope you're feeling better now. Might need some great big rest.

Glad you're feeling better, you did look wretched on Sunday morning

You've spent the money now - it would be silly not to join:-)

Most events are living history - Berkeley is the only other one that isn't, and even then we're on medieval island so have to be authentic. Plastic camping is just plain wierd!

LMB is sick now. I blame you;-)
