The lake is such a calm and beautiful place and very special to me as, aged just 15 or so, I went camping down there for two whole weeks with my own parents when we lived in Germany. In fact, it rained every day that we camped out (bar three days at the very most) and I do recall my Dad trying to sleep in his sleeping bag holding an umbrella over him as one of the zips had developed a dripping point! AND, he'd snickered when my Mum packed the umbrella in the first place! But, it stayed really nice for our visit the other week.

The rounds went on and on - with the adults more often than not giving their turns to each of the little girls, Mia and Livi ..... as you do with little ones playing along.
Round and round we went and Len and I seemed to be mind readers at guessing one another's 'spy item' - spooky or what?!
So, this time round Len guessed my word at once (bear in mind these little ones are bi-lingual so it wasn't always easy for them as English is their second language but they did brilliantly) - and so the baton passed to him.
Before Len could even nominate one of the girls, a little voice beside him (Livi) piped up and very definitely said 'I spy with Len's little eye - something beginning with .....).
Needlesss to say we all cracked up and Grandad Len was scuppered! She totally stole his turn - in such an enchanting way :) Kids, they really are so cute and also wise. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. :)
No card from me right now - with this heat you really gotta be joking'!!
