What an enormous surprise! Northampton takes another faltering step towards being just another faceless boring town as the Balloon festival goes the way of St Crispin's Street Fair and the Northampton Show in Abington Park and gets cancelled by the Council to apparently save an astonishing £3 per council tax payer. So this leaves us with ... yes, the Carnival is the only fun to be had in the town now unless its just snowed or you're out for a curry on the Wellingborough Road.
My New Years Resolution not to moan on my blog is going badly. But my other one not to just use the blog to mention which child has which tooth is going better (Toby has two, and he can give a right nip with them...)
