winning scrabble board

Scrabble was played this weekend. We all took it in turns to win brilliantly or lose terribly. Our final game was where I triumphed. See that 8 letter word – Soakings? That was mine, using up all my letters and getting me a 50 point bonus. And then 5 minutes later? Slaving – my second “bingo” 7 letter word, putting me well in the lead. Where I stayed until the end, and then took a photo of the board. Sad? Just a little!

Oh – and a floor length dresses post is to follow in the next couple of days, as it has just been confirmed that Ben and I are officially being re-invited to the Birmingham Graduation Ball, where influential people meet and network. And, consequently, where young-uns like us get slightly ignored! The food is great though, and it is full black tie – floor length gowns ahoy!

One time we were losing in scrabble, and somehow, we got the word “LICENSOR.” That’s a triple digit word that won us the game.

Good game Cas! We had a good one that someone else got on a previous game – pipes was down, and they turned it onto drainpipes on a tripe word score. Lovely!
