Thanks for popping in.
Bit murky darn sarf today, I can tell you!
And now it appears that Storm Barbara is heading our way.
Dave reckons that’s quite worrying….
Nonetheless, the 3 musketeers stepped out into the elements,
in search of – wait for it – A C A S T L E .
And did we find one? We must have driven past 4 on the way to the jewel of Kent that is Leeds Castle.
Last time I was here was with my Dad at an Elton John concert.
That was awesome.
This time it was lovely too.
The Christmas Market there starts tomorrow,
which to be frank, we weren’t that fussed about.
But it meant that the castle was really quiet today.
It was great just to stroll around and take in the history,
the AGE of everything.
Especially with Nick. He, being American, just could not get his head round how old everything was. And when you are with somebody who is blown away by 1,000 year old walls and turrets,
it makes you look at them differently too.
We are spoiled in this wonderful country of ours,
steeped in history and beautiful architecture.
Even the pub on the way home dated back to 1500 and something!
The kids are off to Londinium for the day tomorrow.
Oh boy! Is he in for a treat.
So what if it was a bit overcast?!
So what if it rained?!
It was perfect.
Just like this beautiful card, kindly given to us by another friend
and member of our wonderful Clarity Team,
Isn’t this just beautiful?
The banner really does look as though you could lift it off the page, like a ribbon.
Just take a moment to enjoy the little details,
the berries, the snowflakes…
right down to the little heart on the banner,
and the snow piling up on the letters.
Look at the O of Our.
Thank you Carole. Your work is indeed superb.
Time to chillax a bit.
All this having fun is tiring!!!
Love & Hugs,
