You lucky ones off to Muncaster! It looks divine, lovely scenery, trains pulled by steam engines,
over 200 owls in the World Owl Centre (you can even 'adopt' one for £30), and lots more.

Hi Feather, you've very welcome, I enjoyed looking it up and it would be nice to go along but I don't think I'd risk going into the castle after nightfall. Creepy! If I came face to face with old Tom I'd probably give up my own ghost immediately.  Shocked  I love the owls though.

Shocked Shocked  I'll be scared stiff too. I have a room to myself. The others are sharing. I only hope it's not The Tapestry Room.  Shocked

Blimey Feather! You mean you're all actually sleeping in the Castle? Yikes!!!
Rather you than me, especially on your own. Poor old Feather.

:lol Run into our room if you see a ghost.

I'm taking my camera so we'll get some pictures -and of the owls too!

30 quid to adopt one,hmmmm- to adopt a sceptic is free and i think we get to bring it home.
Slave sceptics always come in handy.

Yes, Stardust. My train stops at Ravenglass. I hope to goodness Candlelight and lar-lar are there to meet
me. If not, I'm going to have a panic attack.

Well, I hope so too, Feather.  lol   I will be getting the train up to a station near lar-lar where (hopefully) she will meet me off the train in her car, and we will be driving the rest of the way - a long journey, but I imagine quite a beautiful, interesting, scenic one. The original idea was that we would both take turns with the driving, but (not long since the op) driving at the moment for me is a little bit awkward. I'm hoping I will have overcome this particular drawback by then. Have to take each day as it comes and see how things pan out.

As far as I know, yes, just the 3 of us doing battle with all the die-hard sceptics
who will be crawling all over the place. There'll likely be nice ones and not-so-nice
ones but The Three Muscateers will be ready for them.

If you study the facial expressions, you'll realise that kk is the one enjoying
herself. I am scared and rainbows is --well---plain angry. Having reasoned
thus, I declare kk as the instigator.  Rolling Eyes

Uh-oh ... Feather, your 'best behaviour' angel looks like it's been in a scrap already (JJ perhaps?) and looks like the other person came out the better - ha ha! Your angel seems to have one black eye - and a bit of a tattered wing!

How dressed up must we be for the reception on Fri night???
Velvet trousers and a blouse do?
Yes, Misty, I'm excited all right. I have to take a plane then 2 different trains to get there.
Fingers crossed I arrive in the right place.

I wouldn't imagine it'd be all that dressy-uppy, Feather. Well, I certainly hope not anyway.
I imagine whatever we're wearing we're all going to be a bit 'crumpled' anyway, considering the journey involved. Anyway, they're just going to have to take us as we are.

We'll have plenty of time to change as long as the train's on time. The reception is at 8pm I think.

Did I miss the thread where you relate your Muncaster experience?
Please would someone tell me where to find it ?

No, you haven't missed it, Stardust. There was just so much to say about our adventures there, we just haven't got around to doing so here - yet.

Although we have discussed it in a bit more detail on the Spiritlove Forum.

We had an ab fab time, Misty.  very happy

Our bedroom window looked right out over the owl enclosure. We could hear their eerie hoots and woos (lol) all through the night.
When I woke up in the morning and opened the curtain, I was greeted by one of the beautiful creatures staring right at me .. and winking.
