A Playground outing

On my knees here, after a fabulous day with our naughty (but well behaved girl) Sam (aka Hettie) all the way from Wales and the lovely Maureen (ScrappyMo) - all the way from Canada:
So here you have it - left to right - yours truly, Maureen and Sam. 'Stood standing' outside Highclere Castle in Hampshire UK yesterday.

We got on brilliantly, laughed about all the Snippets Playground mischief, and send you our love - your ears should have been burning, and every word was said with a big smile and a lot of affection. What a lovely Playground we have, and it just got a bit closer yesterday :)

More will follow - once I recover! Oh, and Maureen's Al is a hubby in a million too - endless patience with three squawking females - fight you for him girls!

No swings or slides to be seen :( I did have to haul Sam off the grand staircase though, poised ready for a swift slide down the looooong and sweeping banisters!

  3. I do believe I heard a newscast that said 3 young ladies were seen running up and down the staircase at Highclere Castle, police were called, however they appeared to have escaped the long arm of the law. Know anything about that girls?
