I've been home since Monday, but have not been very well - and today my tonsils are swollen [cough]
Sunday in Caerphilly was amazingly windy but mostly sunny, if a little chilly. We set up the market outside and made the most of the slow gate.
Sunday night was driving rain and howling winds all night, causing everything to be damp and cold (one of the drawbacks of canvas tents!) including my sleeping bag and pretty much all my clothes.
On Monday we woke to a grey day.......
with rain drizzling down on a sodden castle.....
and a wind still blowing a gale.......
so we moved the market stalls into the great hall....it was so cool.....very medieval!
I persuaded Rhiannon to take my photo - make the most of this - I definitely won't be having any more of these done.......! :-(
And I'd like to introduce you to my new 'fella' - this is 'Bob'......actually 'Kate, short for Bob'....(it's a Blackadder joke see this link) who is my current love interest in the 14c - I like 'him' cos he's young, cute and blonde, and 'he' likes me because I am......um......strong :-)
(we call this her R2D2 photo!)
(of course, this wouldn't be a full report without mentioning my latest injuries...skinned and bruised fingers from dropping the stocks on them, sunburn on my neck from a day hammering coins in the sun, a blue foot from the coin die dropping on it, and a burn on my leg the size of a 10p piece (half-dollar, perhaps?) caused by my dropping the scalding hot whistle off the kettle onto it.)
