A bank holiday excursion

A trip to the Hampton Court Food Festival.

Lots of lovely food sold from eye-catching stalls - including Chocstar, a renovated Scottish ice-cream van, selling delicious chocolate goods made with Willie's Cacao including brownies, truffles and ice-cream (and in winter, hot chocolate with chilli, which I would love to try) - she's touring California soon, so watch out!

Her next-door neighbour was Perfect Burger, selling tasty burgers from a refurbished 1953 Airstream trailer.

Then, pretty packaging to make me part with my shopping allowance for the day.

Nudo olive oil (those featured are extra virgin and mandarin olive oil) and Bellevue Tea.

After a Chinese tea demonstration, my friend and I took a stroll around the grounds.

Yesterday a friend told me that there was very little which could make her happier (in that moment.) I felt exactly the same when I found out that today is the day that 30 Rock Series 2 is released on DVD in the UK. I read some excerpts in The Times on Saturday and I am so excited! If only I had that DVD in my greedy little hands, that would be the perfect end to what has already been a great weekend - but I will have to wait (Love Film, I hope you're on standby.)

PS We had two free tickets (at £15 each) and we gave them to a family with three children who were just buying theirs. They did not even say thank you. Sorry - not very blog-worthy but I just couldn't believe it.

Looks like a fab day out :)

Can't believe that with the tickets. A little thank you wouldn't have gone amiss! (Wishing there was an emoticon for shaking my head!!)

Nudo olive oil is delicious. I adopted an olive tree for my parents. A fabulous year long present!

oh and what a rude couple!

Lauren Jade said...

it's incredible how rude some people can be, and ungrateful they can be. That was very gracious of you :D it will come back and reward you in the future. and that chocolate stand looks delish! hah

Star said...

and the British are so polite usually! Amazing! Glad you enjoyed your day out. Did you get to see enough? or will you have to go again someday?
Blessings, Star

Beautiful scenery! The plant covered walk way is especially fantastic.

What a lovely experience! I love all of the refurbished vintage vehicles holding delicious foods.

I totally share your irked feelings about helping people who are ungrateful - but it will come back as good karma for you in other ways. :) Last summer, we had free children's tickets to an amusement park, and we had to try five different families before one would "take" them. It was ridiculous!

looks like a great outing!

love the TEA :)

What a great day out.. I'd stil be standing near the chocolate van..

I so agree about ungrateful people... Sometimes.. you wonder.. why you turn around to help..

Great photo of the chocolate van - I can almost taste it!
Hope that family are kicking themselves for not thanking you properly - Lauren Jade and Grace are right, you will be rewarded in other ways!

Bells said...

Oh I hope Struggler's right - the rude family were probably too stunned by your generosity and/or distracted by their brood to answer properly. You'll have good karma anyway!

Thanks for the push to go to Hampton Court. I've been meaning to visit while the weather is good. Maybe this weekend! Looks gorgeous right now.
