My First Goose Fair and a Trip Home!

Apparently, Goose Fair is a big event in Nottingham so myself, Sam and Vicki headed over for some yummy food and rides, before I went home for a quick trip to surprise my mum!

In Midwifery, as students, we do something called case holding. Each year we follow 2 women from booking through to labour and delivery and then hopefully postnatally as well. One of my ladies delivered and I was so happy that I got the chance to go and see her on the ward and meet the new little baby.

"Goose Fair is one of Europe's largest travelling fairs with a history that dates back more than 700 years. Amongst the array of Roller Coasters, Water Rides, Giant Wheels, Bombers, Dodgems, Twists, Waltzers and Miamis familiar to Goose Fair there will be a number of new attractions that have not visited Nottingham before."

I'm personally not really into rides but it was fun to watch Vicki and Sam go on a few of them. 
I loved watching the horse racing and the giant wheel. It totally brings back memories of my childhood when I used to go to Bridlington every year with my grandma, mum, sister and some of the slightly more extended family.
The food was without a doubt the best. There was so much choice, including vegan and vegetarian food, so I got a wood oven cooked pizza made fresh in front of me, and the most delicious brownie!
For the weekend, I headed home. I met my friend Hannah for lunch at Frankie and Benny's which was surprisingly yummy. It's not a favourite of mine, but because I got back quite late, it was the only place still open for food service. Hannah ended up taking me half way home, which I was very grateful for, and dropping me off at another restaurant where my mum was having a meal with some friends of ours.

For once, mum actually had time to do something, so we ended up heading to the cinema to see A Star is Born. I'd heard such good reviews and was so excited to watch it. I really wanted to love it but I just didn't. I thought it was quite boring and jumpy. It never seemed to completely finish the story which was a real shame but I did enjoy most of the songs.
Then it was time to say goodbye to my mum and grandma, plus the dogs, before heading back to Nottingham once again, this time in a car!
