:oops: sorry - I feel sufficiently chastised -

Kerry said they're out Acle way, so not *that* close, but as you say a pair of binoculars would do the trick... and I'll definitely check to see which events they're doing so we could go together. 8)

Tod, Angie put me in touch with Kerri Nicholls (I wonder if she's reading this?) who appears to be my local-est LW person of reference, with the added benefit of actually having met her!! The RaT is a subgroup of LW, isn't it..? Do LW and MM cover the same time period? Grymm - you in a dress???? :sh...

Nar.... boying isn't my thing =D lol! and I don't have a pony :(

But the mixing groups thing is good - I'd hate for people to think I was spreading myself around because of lack of dedication to one group in particular!

I don't hide! I just... don't go! :oops: This is probably a really stupid question, but what's the difference between a skirmish and a battle? Is it just the size? Would it be frowned upon to be part of both LW and MM? Or would that be needless because they're always at the same events anyway? I'm a...

Is that the Henrietta Leyser one?

I can't imagine anyone would approve if a working lady decided to take 4 days off after childbirth. Particularly not the cows with udderfulls.

I did look through the contents of your Medieval Women, but as you say, it has nothing, which is a shame really!
