Maidstone 2001

Time to reminisce: Ten years ago (21-23 Sep 2001), my spouse attended a kick-off meeting held at the Mercure Maidstone Hotel and as usual I tagged along.

While he was having his meeting, I walked to the nearby Leeds Castle with two other ladies who also accompanied their partners to this meeting. We visited the lovely gardens, the maze, the grotto and had scones and cream for tea. Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me at that time so I did not get to take any photos of the lovely place.

After the meeting, my spouse and I visited Canterbury and Dover before returning to Newbury.

Not too sweet

I love to eat ice cream, especially strawberry flavoured ones that are not too sweet with pieces of strawberries in them. Just bought two pints of this:

and ate a third of it in one sitting so they will only last me 3 days. Do you like to eat ice cream? Any recommendation?

One sunny morning, I spotted three kittens enjoying the sunshine on the roof. Can you find them at a glance in the small photo below? If not, just click on the photo to get a better view and you'll see them.

On yet another sunny morning, there they are again. They really know how to enjoy life!
