I am fascinated and intrigued as to what exactly it was about England that captivated your mother and aunt, and how their passion began, but I really think it is great that their love of it has passed on to you! It is a shame your mother couldn't get to visit, but I'm sure she'd be happy that you did. And hopefully you will return to see more - I know you have talked of a return visit!
To explain my love of all things English: my mother and her sister Jo were hopeless Anglophiles, Lorna. Aunt Jo even belonged to a society called Friends of Britain (or something like that) which used to go on tours of England and Scotland. My mother was too busy having babies (there are eight of us!) Instead, she instilled in her two oldest daughters a love of all things British, which has only grown over the years. Mom never made it to England but my older sister Susan did, a number of times. And now I have been there!
I had to laugh Jan. I have seen and done some of her puzzles, but suppose that as I live over here, there is not quite the same attractioon as for you. Your love of all things English is wonderful!! And to have solved ALL of her puzzles is quite an achievement!
Lorna, I have to tell you about my great achievement. Sueswan has posted 1,014 puzzles of buildings and scenes of towns and villages all over England and Scotland - and I've solved EVERY ONE OF THEM!! My undying urge to see every corner of the UK has been greatly aided by these puzzles. Have you seen or solved any of them?
Thanks Jan. I love them too!
These are the cutest, dearest birds - I love them! Like the bigger puzzle size, too!
Thanks Michelle and Pat!
He is a little cute.... Love solving the bigger sizes but do have my limits on how big....
Your European robins look so different from our North American ones, Lorna! This is a little cutie.
