Good Morning Everyone smiley


How are you all today?  I hope you managed to find something lovely and snuggly to do yesterday.  Wasn't the weather grey?!  We even had the heating on here which I was especially grateful for after I was caught in a shower walking Roger!


Another busy day at Akeley for me today so how about a little quiz for you to try with your family.  Why not look at it together over the weekend and send in your answers.  Perhaps you could come up with a team name for your family and even design them a logo!


Good Luck and have a fabulous weekend.


With all best wishes,


Mrs Wrigley heart
