Snippets Playground outing

What a fun day with Debs, Sam and Sarn down in Southampton yesterday:

The lovely barman took this for us - I'm sure you already know that from left to right it's Sam and Fergus, yours truly and Parsnip our fluffy Playground friend, Debs and Sarn.

The ladies looking a bit askance in the background were fresh from the Spa (or as Sam later pointed out perhaps too lazy to get dressed, snort!).

A lovely day, which just flew by sadly. Guess what, we got so engrossed we totally forgot about going for a quick paddle in the duck pond, sigh :( But it's an excuse to do it again next Summer.

Oh, and Parsnip was out of his bed at least four times during the night asking where his new friend Fergus was - and when can we go out for another playtime please!



  1. How fun! You all know each other and got together! Looks like you had a blast!

  2. Oh, how FUN! Wish I could have joined you! :)

  3. what fun Di.. totally amused that you took Fergus and Parsnip with you that was fun!!! for them as well as you..

    .. and would have thought the duck pond paddle was mandatory but as you say - next time... hopefully those two ladies get dressed then :D

    Hey - is that THE Sarn of Sarn Tangles ??????????

  5. Looks like you all had a brilliant time there! Those ladies in the background look embarassed, probably didn't think someone was going to get their camera out, he, he!
    Hugs, Hazel xx

  14. Very late tonight, so had to skip a few comments but could not miss commenting on this fabulous photo.
    Bet you had a great day and just wish I could have been there too, but surprise, surprise that is me in the background, yes just had a fabulous spa treatment and yes couldn't be bothered to get dressed. I always go to Southampton for my Spa treatments - no-one knows me there.

    Brilliant photo.

  15. Hello Di, what a fabulous picture - you all look like you're enjoying yourselves.
    Thanks for the comment and your lovely words of support. It does seem that other people go through a lull at some stage too, so I will stick with it and see what happens.
    I will deffo try to get over more and join you in the playground. You always seem to be having so much fun, and I need to get back to that. :-)

  16. A great day that was over tooo quick. Funny of Kath to say that is her. She could have said Hi surely!
    Err Fergus and Parsnip have met before ya know, when Parsnip stayed for a few days on his way to you!
    Cannot wait til the next trip and I think a spa day would be too funny! At least we could get to stay in our pjs all day! Tho no photos of us in that condition! What happens away stays away yes?

  17. Thank you for sharing this fab foto of you four, Di! You all look so well and so happy and how cool that you were able to bring the critters, too!!

    Oh, so many cartoon bubbles I could put over the head of that undressed, erm, person who appears to be looking down her nose at you ladies who know how to have fun, with your clothes ON no less!

    Hugs, Darnell

  18. Thanks for sharing what looks like a fab day out! Lovely to see you having such fun! xxx

  19. So happy the 6 of you had such a good outing. I can see Parsnip is really taken with Fergus. Fergus is quite a talented quilter, in case you didn't know. I've requested that he pay me a work visit & help out with some fabric, and would love if he'd bring Parsnip across the pond with him. I'm sure they will be fast friends. So nice to put faces to all the names I see here & there, and glad that ya'll were able to enjoy some fun comradeship. TFS the fun with the rest of us far away. Hugs
