Saturday is Caption Day

You know when you have a fair in town and the kids get uber excited about it and there is no way you can avoid the inevitable?
Yeah, that.
So *pretends to put on enthusiastic face* we went to the Lent fair which is very traditional and comes to town at this time every year which is why it is called the Lent Fair. In olden times, it would come to town and you would have your fortune read, you would throw wet sponges at the mayor and you would dunk a wench. Times have moved on and now you have the privilege of throwing £30 down the toilet eating sugar in various forms, trying not to throw up on very large spinning rides and negotiating with children about how many things they can go on.
After the tea cup incident (another time, the wounds are still too raw) we managed to get the princess on a ride, supervised and supported by her big brother.

Safely installed at home and without too many scars I'll be slapping captions all over the other entries at Mammasaurus. I dare you to do the same right after you have applied a caption to mine obviously :)

PS. You like my photos right? *retorical question* *cough* I've only gone and been shortlisted in the Brilliance in Blogging Awards and all that stands between me and a super duper trophy and an embarrassing acceptance speech is your VOTE so be a love and furnish me with a vote by clicking the BIB badge below. I'm under the Snap category. Much obliged x
