hello everyone

been a nice day here today, i hope it is where you are, been out with D and hubby to a place called happy valley, it was years ago since we was there last i remember when the man used to live there http://www.orkneycommunities.co.uk/imagelibrary/picture/number14950.asphttp://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/73426

today i walked a bit and its not the best of places if you got to watch your feet as its all over grown now but sad really as the links i added you will see what it was like, the man lived there well into his 80 or 90,s and did not have all the things we now have no electric no washing machine tv etc you got to know where to find it as there is no signs to tell you where it is, sad really when these places fall into disrepair anyway and the end of the walk i knew i done enough as i was starting to trip so just made it back to the car.

    Hi Only
    Sadly I cant get the link to work, hope you can put it on again, I would love to see it.
    Its so nice to go back to places that you enjoy, what a shame that they have to change, bet you have some good memories though.

    Hi Sylv

    I couldnt access it eiother?? Is it just me and cham or the link? Need someone else to try it. I have wiondows 7 and it's new so who knows could be me.

    Sounds lovely and i wanna go!!! To far away from teh midlands I reckon though.

    Cham - You are right about adults who CAN be nice being 'orrible... and people being not so understanding about kids who CAN'T!!! makes you cross.

    Hope you both are ok after what you've done.

    I did lots of different stuff so am ok :)

    Love
