So, if you can't beat them, join them. We invited several gnome friends to enjoy the loud noise and dust with us. (Why should we have all the fun). Starting with a fortifying afternoon tea of cake, smoked salmon, dips, cheese and other delectables we then headed to the top of the hill where we could get the best view and of course where the most dust was.
We got a roaring bonfire going.
A few red wines and lots of dust later one of the gnomes tried to escape, but she wasn't successful.
Then it was all over for another year and we dragged our cold dusty bodies inside for a bbq. Just the thing to fuel our hungry bodies was some nice Wagyu scotch fillet. Ummm...look at that marbling.
