The Last Bank Holiday

My sister (that's her on the right, me on the left) and her husband are coming to stay this weekend and here in the UK it is the last Bank Holiday until Christmas therefore we Brits go a bit crazy.
rain or shine
We don't care if it rains or shines, well we do prefer sunshine but this IS the UK
country show
We are starting the weekend by visiting our local Country Show. If it rains there's a Beer Tent and we all have wellies so no worries there.
Then to friends (Annie and Gavin) for dinner and drinks and on to the pub.
frisbee golf
Sunday all the locals, friends and families are playing Frisbee Golf in the fields
the holly bush inn greenhaugh
behind our local pub and finishing off with a BBQ in the pub's garden.
Lots of drinking
Lots of food
gated road
and lots of gates to open on the road we use to get to the pub.
hung over
On Monday I fully expect to feel hung over.
Hope your weekend is as good as mine is going to be.

What a pair of cuties you were...and STILL ARE...ahem
Ha! I didn't know you were a younger sister too!?
Obviously not persecuted as some sisters have been...(more ahems..)
I hope the weather was obliging.
