Re: The Queen and Prince Philip

I was amazed how they both coped, but I am sure this took its toll on Prince Philip. All those hours standing, no toilet break and no fluid top up. It would n't do me any good and I am not 90. Get well soon

Re: SPRING 2012

It was 16C and a very cool NE wind this morning, but this afternoon has been glorious. We went to Vannes for a trip out, visited where we wanted to go but couldn't park anywhere in the city and had to come back to our local town for our lunch out, instead of overlooking the port!
