I got something for the Playground!!

Ho, ho, ho - Santa has come a tad early to the Snippets Playground:

Yay! Our very own chestnut roasting stall complete with little steam engine, we only have the best for the Playground. I even kidnapped the guy to keep it going :)
One of the many towers in the town of Ravensburg in Germany over the weekend. The Summer view below, from Wikipedia, shows the town as a whole and it has over 10 different towers:

Our lovely little grand daughter Mia on a carousel at the Christmas market.

My guess is that there was about a foot of snow, but the pavements are all kept really clear so it wasn't an issue. Also, it was thawing rapidly by the time we returned home yesterday - but no doubt there will be more to come.

I need to find time to check out the Playground links as well as my favourite blogs - a whole four days without using the internet...........most peculiar :)



  1. How gorgeous train, my son love them.
    It must be a lovely day.
    Children are smiling and looks so happy.
    Have a nice day Tamara:)

  2. Sounds like a wonderful getaway. That town looked pretty in the postcard.
    Sweet little grandaughter too!

    I haven't checked out the playground yet either so I can't tattle on anyone Miss! Was too busy baking but now it's done (till DH gobbles it all up anyway)!
    Everything is finally finished...time to party!!!

  3. Whoooopeeeeee! Yay - roasted chestnuts and a train carousel xxxx

  4. Hey heh heh! Do you know what you're getting yourself into bringing that lot into the playground!! I've heard roasted chestnuts can explode if they're not cooked properly! Mia looks like she's having fun, lovely to have the snow on the ground, Germany is so pretty. I'm glad you like the card, thought it was about time I sent you something for all the hard work you put in!


  5. Methinks you had a lovely weekend Di!! Thank you so much for posting these piccies - I could almost smell the chestnuts!

    Hugs Sue Pxxx

  6. Well not being a great entrant in the playground,I don't know if I should really comment but,I think you may be dicing with death here and Sandra's comment has just confirmed it, give 'em too much rope they will hang themselves, If you ask me a case of Gilbert Golly. bring me that slipper is called for.

    Mia looks like she is having fun. Glad you had a good time Miss!

  10. Just thought I would mention that Little Mr P LOVES trains!!!

  13. Lovely photos, Di. Had me all nostalgic for Germany ... again ... every time a blogger posts shots taken over there I go all wishful for days of yore!
