Hi thought Id better get round to introducing myself. I live on the ourskirts of SW London and a mother of one dd (12mnths) also have one dss (13 yrswho visitsonce a fortnight) and a salmon pink tarantula whos approx 6 yrs old and very cute (honest). Dp is a SAHD and I troll off to work each day to earn a crust (am in IT). We do Viking reenacting during the summer and also love camping (backpacking style as we dont drive) and cycling. Am totally addicted to MN now and should really be getting some work done not typing this.
A webby welcome to you tarantula from an arachnophobe (well not too bad - couldn't possibly kill one).
My hubby is a Henry VIIIth re-enactor and works full time at it. I also have friends who do both Viking and Roman re-enacting.
Well I reckon youre grand then Mandy. A son to inherite the title and all that male malarky stuff.
Where abouts are you Marina? there are loads of reenactment shows on over the summer. Im sure there would be one near you where your son could try on helmets and mail and see a battle.
SE London Tarantula. Anywhere in Kent would be do-able, although I think East Anglia and NE England copped the worst of the raids?
Ds would be beside himself to meet a real live set of Vikings! He even has his own plastic helmet and pillaging expression
Lots of my friends were in the Civil War Re-enactment Society at Uni...as Cavaliers of course (costumes and lifestyle more fun than the Roundheads).
Happy Birthday Mandy! So which one of the six do you secretly most identify with? I always think Anne of Cleves was probably much nicer than her popular reputation suggests...
Hi Marina There is normally a small multi period show in Hall Place Bexley each year but its not on our website so not sure if its on this year. buts thats a brilliant show for the kids as they have all kinds there and its quite easy to get to. this is our website and they have updates of all the events.
