Spud knows what she's talking about Grockles are the worst when you're trying to get somewhere fast!!!!!

AOH... I always suspected you're English by the way you write your blog...weird huh...

rxBambi said...

Ditto AOH, I love Brittan. And still, don't know what grockles are...
Are they proper nouns? Hmmm. Must tell.
So jealous, still. But looking forward to BCreno.

Grockles are tourists, of the type which infuriate me in Oxford Street/Tottenham Court Road when I'm battling to get to work. And which clogged up the roads in Somerset during the summer when I was a child.

Great summary! x

Fabulous!!

The only thing that could make these BC experiences better is a live link for those of us who are grounded. Can we make a date for BC 2.0?

The Fragrant Muse said...

Ditto to Cyndy's plea.

Are you sure this was England? Everything is so sunny and warm looking!

B said...

OMG! That photo! What am I doing? I love the recap, though!

Bee said...

You took such good notes! And I'm sure all of my particular sayings made more sense in context (not!).

It's so enjoyable to just wallow in the memories.

I have come to this blog late: but I live in England only during the school years and leave for America in the summers, so perhaps I will always be an outsider... however, I am here to say that bloggers CAN be real friends... what a panel that would make at some very cool conference some day. Really enjoyed reading about your fun in the summer British sun!
