Travelling on...

Went to the last night of Hull Fair (much of which heads to the north east coast now). Finn was brave the other night when we took him and actually went on a ride but this time around would only shake his head in the negative whenever we suggested that he repeat his impressive feat. We bought some horrible chips that made Bob Carver's greasy efforts seem like Michelin Star winners in comparison. We looked at the flashing lights and went "ooh" and "aah" because that's what you do when you take an almost two-year-old along for the non-ride. Me and Hull Fair go way back - mother used to run an off-license on the corner of the street that hosts the fair so I used to go every night. I miss the goldfish, the boxing booth and really wanting to get on the latest, most expensive rides. The vomit, well, I'm happy to live without that.
