    In preparation for our picnic tomorrow, I have gone through the lists on the first couple of pages and I have picked out anything I thought would be suitable for a picnic. If anyone has not updated their list and has won anything that they feel would be nice to take with us, please post below and I will update this list.

    I think between us, we have certainly won enough to keep us fed and watered for the whole day.

    Since we can't play actual rounders, should we have some online forum games for our picnic?

    Whoever is first online when the picnic starts can choose the first game and start the fun.

    Welcome to the picnic.

    Food anagrams - 1) = lasagne.

    I will come back later and see if I can work some more out.

    Meanwhile - another game to play too.

    I will give you a word, for example 'bell', then the next person changes one letter to give a different word, so for example 'fell', then the next person changes it to 'full', then 'fuel' and so on, until we can go on no more.
