It was another good food-filled weekend round these parts. Ian and I headed to Minehead for the annual Ale and Cider Festival and to start his 30th birthday celebrations. We try to go most years as we can stay with my parents and not have to worry about a designated driver – ideal!
Held at Minehead train station, this little festival has grown over the years since we started going and it was packed when we arrived on Saturday afternoon. We sampled a few ales and ciders and enjoyed the sunshine sat alongside the train tracks. I loved some of the ale names – my particular favourite this year was ‘Brew Springsteen’ and who doesn’t love a good beer pun?!
We had a little beer break to go and eat at my Dad’s new restaurant (review coming soon!) but popped back along that evening for a night cap or two. There were live bands playing old school metal which we loved and it was such a good atmosphere – we’re already looking forward to next year!
Today we had a lazy morning, a spot of shopping and then just had time to watch my brother play (and win!) in his tennis final before driving home.
I have a super busy week ahead with meetings, courses, birthdays and house guests as well as the usual craziness of teaching so posts may be slightly sporadic as I try to fit in work and sleep!
