VAMPIRE PIG and other animals.
So. Significant Other is from that quaint old place called the West Country, commonly known for its abundance of farmers, fields and Scrumpy. We visited for a quick break, seeing as neither of us can afford real holidays. It's called a stay-cation which I'm sure would have been coined by The Guardian to make middle class types feel better about not being to go somewhere hot and sunny since the recession.
I digest... Only went and had a right bloody good time. Frolicking on Croyde beach, surrounded by posh mummies comparing notes on how terrible their sullen teenagers are, (who sat a bit away from said mummies and daddies, occassionally shooting daggers and stabbing sand), and the realities of the modern world, what with future employers now checking everyone's Facebook profiles to check they aren't about to interview an exhibitionist show-off, or even worse, an over sharing emo. Love English beaches. Always soooo much lobster pink flesh and celluilte on show. I sat there giggling at this, then proceded to fall asleep and scald my face so badly that I looked like a leprosy victim for the rest of the trip. Serves me right really.
What a babe. And the pig ain't bad either.
This foaming at the mouth beast won best in show. This pig obviously has the X-Factor.
The Royal Bath and West country show, was probably the most hilarious part of the trip. Surrounded by scarecrow looking men in muddy barbours, a billion gazillion dogs, cows, sheeps, pigs, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, goats, pgymy goats, llamas, alpacas of every breed, cross-breed and mutant breed imaginable, and then the slack-jawed gawper townie (i.e. me) stumbling around from tent to tent, oohing and awwing over the preeeettty animals, and then feeling only slightly guilty when stuffing their faces with country farmed sausage sandwiches moments later.
There was a room dedicated to CHEESE. A lactose intolerant nightmare.
Banksy.... Oooh you little tinker.
Ernie. He's actually a she.
Significant Other and Ernie. Girl Porn.
The most horrendous thing I ever saw. This was actually a competition prize.
Welcome to the West Country!
