I am a lover of hot food. I adore chillies so what better way to spend a Sunday than attending a chilli festival with great friends?
It took place in the beautiful grounds of West Dean College, Chichester. There was salsa music and dancing, wonderful belly dancers, arts and crafts, chilli everything and some blooming marvellous bloody Mary’s with generous helpings of chilli mixed in! We came home with bags of chilli yumminess. I even tried some chilli fudge. Mmmm! Even the weather was on our side – glorious sunshine all day long.
I waited for them to be served and placed my order. Whilst I was being served and paying a booming loud voice suddenly sprang up and said something about ‘some of us have had to queue’ and informed me that the queue was going all the way around the corner and I had pushed in… I honestly wouldn’t ever have done that on purpose and felt entirely mortified!
By then I’d paid my money and was ready to walk away so the damage had been done. I apologised profusely but the guy was still (I think jokingly) pulling my leg about it. I’m just so glad I had sunglasses on because then I got a huge lump in my throat and started to cry! I think it was a bit of a hormonal moment… glad I can laugh at it now, what a silly girlie!
Well giggles were the order of the rest of the day as we squeezed ourselves into a photo booth at the train station only to find it was out of order so I decided to take a photo using my camera. Came out nice, don’t ya think?
Huge thanks to Steve, Mel, Danny and the chillies for a fab Sunday! Anyone else love their chillies?
