Have A (Wet) Seat

If it hadn't been so wet and rainy I might have sat and enjoyed the view from this seat - oh and I would probably have been swinging my feet through those lovely leaves :))

Well I am very pleased to report that Laura got home safely from India last night.  
She walked in the door at 8pm very tired and having had a good time I think (even though it had been for work and not a holiday). 
 She did say that India was completely different to anything she expected and that the people were lovely.

A couple of years ago I asked her to bring me a fridge magnet home from wherever she was going to be on holiday.  I have built up quite a wee selection. 
New York
Las Vegas
Gran Canaria
Alton Towers - Karen brought this one home!
Boston and Cambletown - Emma brought these home.

Now I've got one from Mumbai, India - it's great, I feel like I am travelling the world through my girls and my fridge magnets, lol.

My fridge is getting a wee bit busy though :))

Glad she made it home safely. What an amazing trip she probably had! I bet she'll have lots of interesting stories because India is one those places you never forget:) And as to magnets...you can never have too many especially when you have cats who like to knock them off:)
I am happy to hear that Laura is home safe and sound. I love the photo of the bench. This bench looks like it had a quite a few people sit on it and enjoy the view.

I'm glad she's home safe. Lovely photo Ellie.
Oh lovely!! I've worked in Mumbai twice (for about 6 weeks each time) and in the western side of India twice and up in the Calcutta region and loved it!! I love India and the Indian people and hope one day to be fit enough to go again!! It is such a special place and has a big place in my heart! I so envy your daughter going and how lovely that you have them home to tell you all about it and share their experiences! Joan
Glad she had a good trip! You need to post a picture of your fridge magnet collection!

I had to laugh when I read the title of your blog entry! I thought it said : "Have a (wee) seat!" I thought that's Ellie being Scottish! I wasn't disappointed in the rest of the text. I love it!
From one bench in the leaves to another, have a lovely weekend! Sandra
