What a brilliant weekend's weather we had for our local annual Music Festival. As usual the village was buzzing with people going from one venue to the next and music could be heard wherever we went. Almost every public building in the village was occupied with a concert, gig, workshop or performance of some kind including the hotel, 2 pubs, school, castle, golf club, church and chapel. It was an impressive work of organisation and much praise should go to the organising committee and volunteers who worked hard all week to make sure all ran smoothly.
Needless to say that each year, this particular weekend is a complete write-off as regards doing anything at home is concerned. But I wouldn't miss it for the world. We have been blessed with fantastic weather every year so far and we have always had a fantastic time.
Above is the Tredegar Orpheus Male Voice Choir performing on Sunday afternoon at the castle. An ideal setting for such an occasion, completed by a picnic.
Also on Sunday we went to the see the Abba tribute band http://www.myspace.com/originalabbagold perform at the hotel. They were brilliant and everyone had great fun dancing and singing along, with many good sports dressed in 70's costume.
I was back at work today and need to catch up on some sleep and housework (and sewing) but would do exactly the same next year!!
My new camera arrived today so hopefully the quality of my pictures will improve. It's a Fuji FinePix F60 fd. I read some good reviews for it and took the plunge and ordered it even though I don't know much about cameras. It came within 1 working day from http://www.ukdigitalcameras.co.uk which was quite impressive.
Bye for now
