A New Generation of Mrs. Cotterills...

On Saturday Emma became the latest Mrs. Cotterill as she married nephew Mark. Don't be fooled Mark isn't looking whimsically towards to someone up on his right, he is most definitely posing!

It was a great day and well worth a trip to Sweden. Apart from the stunning scenery, driving around in a fantastic Volvo S80 and buying the supposed viking game of Kubb for £9 in a petrol station just outside Gothenburg! it was good to spend some quality time with my big brother Philip and my Mum and Dad.

I'm very proud of my family - welcome Emma!

Oh man Kubb! I haven't played that in ages.
Is it available in the UK at all?

You should google it - a sec at college bought a set today for £45!

Yesterday was a sad day. Due to the bad weather 'up north' our 'shed' flooded and our kubb set was ruined. All those planned lazy afternoons, teaching the young people of East End Park how to throw blocks of wood strategically at other blocks of wood rather than at each other or through windows will never materialise!!!

kubb for £9 has got to be a bargain

you could have made a killing by bringing a few sets back to the uk

it has been virtually sold out here since chris evans mentioned it on his radio show

perhjaps you could arrange a kubb championship in the college grounds

thanks for the printouts recieved via karen and my mother in law

Andrew - there is an inner city version of kubb that uses bottles and bricks :o)

darrin - I hadn't realised - they are in petrol stations all over Sweden. My nephew is still out there perhaps there is an angle for Cotterill Imports!!
