A trip to A & E dominated the week. Toby played in a school football match and he got 'studded'. Unfortunately the stud got stuck into his shin and dragged down so he has a 1" deep gash!!! Yuck, yuck, yuck. Due to the fact it is a stud injury and the edges are too ragged, the hospital are unable to glue or stitch it so the wound is left open, so a lot of wound re-dressing is required (not my forte at all!).
Anyway, back to last weekend and the Isle of Wight. What I liked about the island was that you could drive from 1 place to the next without spending too long in the car. One of our first visits was to the Isle of Wight Garlic Farm.
The aroma of smoked garlic was glorious.
A little potted history about garlic and it's cultivation.
Cultivated garlic sets to purchase.
Next stop was the model village in Godshill. What a pretty little place to visit. The models were all done extremely well and were made using proper stone to give them their authentic look.
Even proper thatched roofs!

Have a great weekend!
