We spent the weekend at a steam fair, where the evenings were spent drinking cider at the beer tent, keeping warm under the steam engines, and watching the men trying to ring the bell of the strongman game.
My favourite attraction of the vintage fair ground was the old fashioned arcade. The old man who you can see standing at the balcony must have been chuffed to bits that his attraction was pretty much full of people most of the time.
I flicked many 2 pence's around the various wooden boxes hoping to make a win, but alas it was not to be.
I have to admit, it took me a while to figure out how to play some of them, it’s so long since I was a little girl with my bag full of pennies,
But I got quite a bit of practise in…
And then, we spotted this. The Pin ball machine.
ooooo I got a wee bit excited.
One day, when I have my own tea room I’ve always said there will be a pin ball machine in the corner.
Wouldn’t that be fab?!
