You will also know how I like to travel as much as possible. AND, you will know how much I adore celebrations and festivities. So, how happy was I when some of my favourite things all came together recently? Very happy, VERY happy indeed.
A group of the “chosen family” (you know those friends who have become “family” and I don’t mean in a creepy cult way – just many years of shared life experiences and a whole lot of love) rendezvoused a few weeks ago to celebrate 3 x significant birthdays.
The night before the official celebration, many of us gathered down in the glade for a game of Kubb, a few drinks and to enjoy a nosh-up of Goulash. All sitting around the campfire in front of the gypsy vans. Even the non-meat eating folk had their own bubbling pot of vego goulash!!
Before I go any further, I hear you asking what is Kubb – unless of course you are Swedish, you know all about it. It is a game. A team sport. Wikipedia descirbes as;
Kubb (pronounced [kɵbː] in Swedish or [kubː] in Gutnish) is a lawn game where the objective is to knock over wooden blocks (kubbs) by throwing wooden batons (kastpinnar) at them. Kubb can be described as a combination of bowling and horseshoes.
Now as the most unlikely and least able sports orientated person in my family and friends network – it is not usual for me to be picked on anyone’s team. But selected I was AND I was the first person to score in the game. Now I would love to say it was extraordinary skill and ability but in reality it was pure LUCK !
Well it is simply the perfect location for weddings, parties and celebrations.
If you call to make a reservation, make sure you tell Jules you read about the Copper Beech Glade here on the PCH Blog!
