The Royal Highland Show 2010

…started today and will be running until Sunday at Inslington, Edingburgh. For the next four days, there will be something for everyone. Events include cookery demonstrations, live chainsaw wood carving, the Gun Dog display, as well as over a hundred exhibitors at The Food Hall, handmade clothes and jewelry to buy, not to mention the all important showing and judging of sheep, cattle and ponies. Oh and there will also be giant hamster ball rolling. Not rolling your giant hamster against another giant hamster but larking about in one of those huge see-through balls as hamsters would do.

It sounds a lot like a Scottish version of the Ardingly Agricultural Show I went to in my youth yet seeing as I’m not a youth anymore, it is something I would definitely like to go to without having to be dragged by my parents. In my defence, I probably would have been a slightly less of a pain in the arse for my suffering parents had there have been ‘giant hamster ball rolling’ at Ardingly.

We were seriously considering not telling you this specific bit so as not to ruin our chances but when you sign up as a member, you are automatically *whispers* entered into a free competition to win lots of Graham’s Dairy ice cream *whispers*.
