That wasn't Slenderman - that was the Silence.

See, I always thought of Dibbler as a cockney geezer.
But mebbe he does work as a Yorkshireman.

I went to three free cookery demos.
And sampled food at all of them. Very, very good - this place is great when the sun shines!
I especially enjoyed the Italian cookery demonstration; a Sardinian chef who makes his own cheese (it's entered into the Great North Show which I'm going to next week). A marvellous blue ewe's cheese.

The restaurant/ cafe across the street were also giving out free samples. Really good food. Although the tiny hidden pieces of cucumber in the marinated salad repeated on me all afternoon, reminding me of why I don't eat it.

I have many, many photos from The Great Yorkshire Show. So even though I've culled them, I'll be rambling on for days. Just so you know.

The Show is held at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate and It Is Enormous.
I was told by more than one person that you couldn't see it all in a day, but it's $37 to get in (my ticket was a birthday present) so you just do what you can.

Facts and figures:
- Largest agricultural show in England
- 250 acre site
- approx 135,00 visitors for the three days it's on
- Lots of fit farmers and squaddies (okay, maybe that's not a fact)

I left later than intended. The usual start to all of my photo threads.
I jabbed myself in the eye with a mascara wand. Said eye-leaking meant I had to remove the small amount of tasteful make-up I'd applied, because it was running down my face. So I went bare-faced. Which was okay, but I wish I'd looked like I made an effort, rather than hiding behind my sunnies like a battered wife.

Bus to Harrogate, which took 30 mins longer than usual, because of Show traffic.
I was sort of okay, but starting to get a bit antsy at the woman behind me, who thought her husband was blind. He wasn't, he had a newspaper, it it wasn't even in that special bumpy writing.
"Oh, there's a church."
"Oh a pub."
"They're all outside."
"That's the park, then."

So I stabbed her with my eyeball-seeking mascara wand.

Okay, what I really mean is I scrambled off that bus asap, and got in the queue for the next; the shuttle bus to the Showground.
I have to say it was all very well organised. We waited ten minutes, true, but it was a free transfer and the bus left as soon as it was full. They actively encourage people to take public transport to the Show, because it frees up valuable space that would otherwise have to be given over to car-parking.

First thing I saw as I walked in?
The wheel.

Can't help it. love me a wheel. And I figured it would give me a great vantage point to see the Show. Blimey.

I'm trying not to overload this with photos of me, as there are so many other things to show you. But this one almost counts as scenery.

This stall sold really beautiful children's clothes.
I'd have bought two of their jumpers for the twins' Christmas presents... If they hadn't been 30 each. Soz boys, I don't even get to spend that on ME!

Stall above sold hats as well as kites.

I did not need a hat, either.

I really wanted a hat and a kite.
Guess what I bought? (yeah I know, you already saw it in the RFN thread)

I blame Dana. She showed me it was okay for a woman to wear a hat these days.

Barely gone 11.30 and already the food stalls are mobbed.

I did not take my own food to this Show. It was my birthday treat!
I had a pasty. Later than it sits in this thread, but it was from this stall. 4, which is shocking really. But no different from the other prices, which averaged out at 6 for even less filling food.

My old friend lives in Harrogate, her name is Alayne, did you see her??

(No because she is anti-social and as such would probably not be interested in a fair.)
