On Sunday Mr C went to the Derby wargame show with a couple of his mates.  I was asked if I wanted to go and I considered perhaps being dropped of at a Stately home nearby.  I decided to stay at home, I thought there might be too much wargame talk in the car.

I had just finished reading a chapter in a book about The Battle of Flodden to help me with a post I was writing for Vision & Verb, when the phone rang.  It was Mr C.  He started off by telling me that a Battle of Flodden re-enactment game was going on at the show.  But more importantly as he arrived at the show he bumped into Gavin & Jen (two of the Aussies we met at the Coach House).  It turns out that he is a wargamer too!!

What are the chances of that?

    See! You just never know, Cherry. I wonder if you wished you had gone, in order to see Gavin and Jen again…or were you just as glad to still be home?! :)

      I did ponder on that. But even if I had gone along I wouldn’t have gone to the wargame show, I would have been dropped off along the way. I am glad I chose not to accompany Mr C on his journey because I know I would have wished he hadn’t dropped me off along the way ;-)

    It’s a small world.

    But I wouldn’t want to paint it. :)

    These things keep happening – it is very strange. I am sorry you missed Flodden, though

    • CherryPie says:

      They do keep happening!!

      I would have liked to see that table re-enactment. I even asked Mr C. to take some photos of it for me. They all came out blurred… It was obviously not meant to be ;-)
