A Tuesday Tale - breaking rules

Earlier this Summer I went on a little coach trip up to London to the Victoria and Albert Museum. Our 'walking disaster', Kath from the Hospice Shop, also came along.

When lunchtime came, most of us took advantage of the chance to sit outside in The Garden Cafe:
The picture above is taken from the V and A website and shows the central water feature in the cafe area.

Poor Kath misjudged those steps and took a tumble, rolling down them almost in slow motion then ending up in the water - which is only about 4" deep. The group of ladies she was with rushed to her rescue, hauled her out of the water and began to mop her dry. Then one wag in the group solemnly pointed to an official notice beside the water and said 'You're in for trouble now Kath'. What did the notice say? 'No paddling in the water at any time'. Kath, being Kath, could see the funny side thankfully!

I think it's back to some card making for me today - yippee!!
