SHINDIG ( shindigs plural ) A shindig is a large noisy, enjoyable party

Yes indeedy, we certainly had one of those this weekend!
(As evidenced by my uncharacteristically erratic wobbly/fuzzy camera work)
And all of this in spite of the worst weather July in England could throw at us~

A lovely time was had courtesy of
Lamb by Jamie Oliver,
Bar and Barbecue cooking by Mr.Lane
Pudding Mrs.Long
Cheeseboard Madame Cholet
Hydrangea wreath by Rabbit inspired by Penny at le petit jardin,
Drinks for monkeys by LUDO
Artistic direction (bunting) by Del
Olympic rounders tournament THE CHILDREN

Well done team x

Off to take a couple more paracetamol, shhhhhhh.......

SHINDIG ( shindigs plural ) A shindig is a large noisy, enjoyable party


  1. Looks like you all had a fab time. Love the photo of the children in descending height - one to treasure! Also, liked the Hampton Court post!

  2. Looks more like a hootenanny to me!
    It definitely looks like a barn warming... and a very pretty barn too.

  3. Looks likes lots of fun! Your barn is amazing, what an outbuilding, (we live in ours)! Wondering what you will use yours for when not shindigging?!!

  4. What fun!!!!! Love all the sweet decorations.
    It has been wet wet wet here in BC too...xoxoxo

  5. Ooohhhhh I love a good old shindig and was it in a barn (do I spy?)

    Glad the weather didn't dampen the spirits - not drinks by the way!

  9. Sounds like a wonderful time was had by all, love the decorations and that photo of the bunting against the night sky is just lovely.
