Chatham Historic Dockyard
Hiya, we are off to Chatham Dockyard this weekend for a 40's salute to the Dockyard. Its an event that has been running for a couple of years now and is the highlight of our year to be truthful. We get to see many of the friends we have made over the past few years and we live a 40's lifestyle for the weekend while we are on the dockyard site.
Many of the ways of life from the 40's are normal practice to us in our everyday life. Some of our friends and colleagues either think we are mad or an intrigued, especially when we say that we save money and time, but have equally as comfortable a life as they do. I am going to write a few posts about 40's things which are normal to us, over the next few weeks.
This is one of the shows that my friend Judy puts on, they are always brilliant and do make you stop and think. If you get the chance to go the event it's on Saturday and Sunday and it really is a good day out ! I shall be dressed up (or down, depending on how you look at it) as a Mrs Mop, probably with a mop and bucket, come and say hello if you are there, I'm quite friendly - honest!
