Huge thanks to Jane, Anna and Stevie for everything they did to make this year happen. I finally managed to make it this year and am so glad I did. Brilliantly chilled out but also with the fun of the Olympics...*and* I got to play Cluedo for the first time ever! Woo! And a special "thanks for being vegan friendly" on the food front, gives me warm and fuzzies every time... :-)

Thanks to Lou for letting me drench her jeans in the name of the slippery slide (and also Zena for enjoying it even more than me resulting in much more sliding than was strictly necessary...and for the lift to the station!) and to everyone who was there for making it the meet it was. Awesomeness - thanking ye all kindly!

...and now to digest the massive amount of food I feasted on!

Thanks to Jane, Anna and Steve for a fantastic event. And thank you to everyone who was there for being just utterly bloody lovely. Dan and I had a brilliant time in spite of injuries and he has asked if we can do it again!

:D :D  Thank you to everyone who came for making ot a really lovely weekend again.

Special moments include Anna telling me that I must be a fire breathing dragon, when I blew on the camp fire and it immediately burst into flame, Rachel taking pictures of the fire with chocolate wrapper cellophane filters and playing Settlers of Catan until half past two in the morning  :D

Biggest thanks to everyone who stayed right until all the clearing up was done, you were awesome. Mum White xxx

This was the first J.O. I could make and I had a rip-roaring good time, in a deliciously laidback way.  Thank you to all for chat, hugs, lifts, first Jenga ever and all that jazz.

Thanks to everyone who braved the weather forecast to discover an actually OK day or two, as well a huge one to the clean-up crew.

You were all splendid :)

Sorry we didn't make it today. The forecast said heavy rain and boy did it come down here. Kids were mental with cabin fever.

Glad you all had a great time.

It was lovely to see you all, but sad to miss those that came on Sunday.

Thanks, to Jane, Anna and Steve.  And as Anna said, to the weather.

If I remember rightly, you make your page and then you can add it onto the group page?

I think I tried to do that, but I got myself into the depths of the Build Africa website and couldn't work out what I had to do. I'll give it another go, but If I can't workit out,I'll just add it on to the GGF one as Tigger did. It's all going the same way, but I thought it would be nice for people to see how much it was. Thanks anyway , Mum White xx
