Whilst walking around Windsor Castle and later through the town we saw quite a few Olympians from Poland, Russia, Greece and a group from the GB Team - brilliant!

and today’s visitors - George’s sister Diane and husband Paul - great to see you both again.


  1. I work with in spitting distance of the castle - great place to be :)

  2. Hi Julie - I remembered that you also commented on the blog when we were in Windsor last year - we shall call in again for a couple of nights on the way back in a few weeks time - keep an eye on the blog and come and say hello, we’d love to meet up with you.
