Formula One Widow

Mr Jelly is a BIG Formula One fan.

He's not bothered about football (hooray)
.
He has no interest in cricket (double-hooray)
.
But life isn't worth living if he misses any Formula One grand-prix action and every year he makes his annual pilgrimage to his Mecca ... Silverstone circuit.
.
So this weekend saw him camping in a field (in the rain), getting up at ridiculous o'clock in the morning (in the rain), queuing to be let in to the circuit (in the rain) and waiting an endless amount of time for anything to happen (in the rain).
.
.
I did manage to catch sight of him in the crowd on the tv.
.

.
Can you see him?
.
No?
.
Okay, let's have an extreme close up ....
.

.
I, in the meantime, have been doing some of this:
.

.
Eating lots of this:
.

.
Did a bit of this:
.

.
Spent quite a lot of time in these:
.

.
Watched plenty of him:
.
.
And did absolutely none of this:
.

.
So we're both happy in our little spots of paradise!

Hahhahahaha!!! Mr Tip Top is also the same but he watches in the dry comfort of home!!

I HAD to go and do some craft shopping so he got some peace and quiet for an hour. The hardship eh??!!

PS Thanks for your comments on the root beer - yes! I would love some - let me know how much etc!!

Fab weekend all round I'd say. And in a couple of years he's going to be closer to our little bit of the world. Donnington isn't a million miles away from us. Well it's closer than Silverstone anyhoo. :o)
