Busy in Nottingham

We have been back in Nottingham for about a week now, and every night we have been out seeing friends, eating, drinking and generally being sociable.
Last night we went to see Paloma Faith on stage in Sherwood Forest.
The day started off wet and unpromising, but it improved as the evening approached.  By the time we were sitting on our picnic blanket with a glass of wine in hand, the sun was most definitely out and it was all very pleasant.
Paloma was great and we really enjoyed the show.
Afterwards we walked back through the forest on a single lane road to our campsite. Fortunately the moon was bright so it wasn't too dark, and we were almost back home when a huge tour bus passed us.
It was Paloma and her band making a quick getaway rather than joining the crowds queuing to get out of the main entrance.
We had a peaceful nights sleep in a farmers field in a clearing in the forest, and when we got up this morning the two donkeys, ducks and geese who lived there permanently were wandering all around us. Aaaaaahh!  how sweet.
