Exotic Marigold Hotel and the secound film , very enjoyable

Visited Lincolns " steam punk " event today , it is on over the bank holiday , I think of it as Victorian Sci-fi , you can just "goggle " it , some of the costumes are amazing , the effort that some people put into it !

Good day yesterday , went to watch Lincoln City v Grimsby , a local derby , good game and a draw 1-1 

Hope you are all having a great bank holiday 

Figs galore
