Oh boy...

... do I hurt today!

Bit of a flare coupled with sitting in a low chair all day yesterday for a 7 hour briefing on Child Protection legislation and a visit here



today with 41 six year olds.

It's Raby Castle. We're learning about castles as part of our project on structures this term and we're lucky, because in this part of the world castles are quite plentiful.

We met a couple from Australia today who were more excited than our children. It was lovely! They were so impressed when we could tell them all about murder holes and curtain walls and moats. I guess we take our heritage for granted a bit as, on the bus on the way home, the best bits were voted to be eating our picnic in the walled garden and going on the adventure playground.

Ohh sorry on the flare --- but the castle looks pretty neat - one of my oh it's worth it for a flare - but like you say I don't live where castles are the norm by any means :D

Now celebrities I have tons of sightings of ....

soft hugs -

btw got another pair of socks done and am now working on my Fourth of July Socks (color way is 1776 and it is red, white, and blue with white flecks) lots of fun to see what will be where in the pattern.

That Aussie couple had the right attitude :-) We don't have physical history like you do.

I am deeply impressed every time I visit a castle or monastery in GB.

Thanks for the warning Rho - I've been a spoilsport and deleted it! :)
