A day at the Fair


Well I'm glad my daughter is in this photo to brighten it up - the old looking dude not knowing where to look is really cramping the style here.

Today was the yearty trip to the Goose Fair in Nottingham, except for the last 4/5 years we have not visited due to court cases and distance. Today felt like a return to the good days of father and daughter - it was always my thing to take her to this 'world famous' Fair, 5 minutes from the part of town I've lived in for so much of my time in these parts.

Could be a description of what I did prior to my move away from Nottingham. There's something about losing family members, and friends, and lack of contact with your only child, etc, that can put you on edge.

This was taken on the first ride, before it began. We had to sit for 5/10 mins while the carriage behind us was cleaned, even though in the end they gave up and left it empty.

Can you spot the chunder on the right-hand side? Lovely!

Biggest person sits here.

Biggest puke sat there.

My daughter is a pro fairground rider, never afraid and always wanting to go on the fastest, biggest, most frightening looking machines. I do remember a day here though in the past where she begged me to take her on a ride that I didn't fancy at all, and then having her almost in tears throughout as she was scared to death. It didn't put her off the other stuff though.



We recommend this ride, if you like all the blood to move to your feet as you are sent into a spin and gravity takes over. Chunder-free also.

I was half looking forward to going on a ride called 'Booster', but it was broken and seemed to lack interest.......


This is the market square in Nottingham, when there isn't an event taking place - It was about time they took away the sand and shitty stalls and I'm liking the space again now.

After I dropped my daughter off at the bus-stop, i found a pub showing the Man U game and found a good spot to watch them lose 1-nil. Not every day can be perfect.

True that. At least the chunder on the seats behind didn't fly at us whilst we were spinning. That would have been harsh!

That's wonderful to hear. Warms the cockles of your heart. 😁 😍

Although fair rides are about as far as you can get to my idea of a perfect day! 😂

I used to love them, and now I go on them not to look like a chicken. At least I didn't hurl like someone on the previous spin! :D

You were lucky with the rain, we had simultaneous sun and rain a few times today. Then it was sunny, went out shopping in a t-shirt - got far enough away from cover and the heavens opened. Turns out I make a drowned rat look good lol.

It’s good you are getting chance to catch up with your daughter again and share time, sometimes life takes us in directions we never intended but how we put it back on track makes the real difference.

Thanks man :)

Yeah downpours were predicted but it didn't rain and at one point there wasn't a cloud in the sky.

It's really great to be seeing her more often, 14 next March - unbelievable.

Hope you had a good weekend despite the showers, cheers :)

Hahaha @abh12345. I almost can't wait to see sooner than later a dozen of great photos of you with your beautiful little maiden, taking a good joyous stroll together through Shangri-La & Arcadia Pangea this next 24-28 June 2020 somewhere out there in the surroundings of Michael Eavis farm between Pilton & Pylle in Somerset.

My daughter is a pro fairground rider, never afraid and always wanting to go on the fastest, biggest, most frightening looking machines.

Hell yeah mate! then, I bet she will love that 'wild ride' across Glasto big time. :)

Cheers!!

I’ve never been to Glastonbury and I suspect her mum will not allow it!

Ah! don't worry mate. As of today until next 24-28 June 2020, just start picking up & collect all those shitcoins you have scattered all over across the steem blockchain. And crown two tickets to Glastonbury Fest right now.

And then with what you have left, simply buy a nice Louis Vuitton handbag to her mum to happily shut her hell up.

And if it turns out she is too greedy and she now also wish to show off her new handbag with the masses. Then you'd have no choice but purchase a third Glasto ticket and endure the experience. :D
