Bank Holiday Weekend!

You know it's a Bank Holiday here when :

The weather is awful
Every other vehicle has a caravan attached to it

I'm jealous! I want to be away in our caravan, but the clutch is going on my car and I can't afford to fix it yet, and till the BF gets a job, we can't really afford to go away :-(

Anyway, less moaning. We have found a couple of things to while away our time - we got free tickets for a circus and went to that yesterday! We've been before and it's a good laugh - a silly way to while away an evening - animal circus' are banned in the UK, so it's basically a bunch of people throwing themselves round the ring for our entertainment. I think this circus is a mixed European one, a couple of the acts were Bulgarian (No Krum though) and one was Spanish, The Ring Mistress (? Sounds a bit S&M *lol*) sounded like an Essex girl - she had a 'carnie' voice - you know the ones at the carnivals who talk into the PA and get you to go on the rides. There was a girl in a wheelchair on one side of the tent who had been given one of those spinning light thingys that they try and sell you as they go in and she was having a whale of a time - spinning her light like crazy and freaking out to the music!

This is a picture I took with my camera phone - not the best quality, but you get the idea!
