I don't know why it is, but I have always been fascinated with labyrinths and mazes - probably down to a misspent youth sitting round a big table playing too much in the way of Dungeons and Dragons with my big brother and his mates.
Every now and again in later Summer I'll be out and about and see a sign for a MAIZE MAZE where a maze has been cut in a farmer's field in the shape of a maze (or sown accordingly, I guess, so it grows into the shape), and wanted to check it out, but I have never got round to it.
So when I was away for a girls' weekend with my big sister Helen this week in London, we decided to spend a day in Hampton Court Palace. And what's at Hampton Court Palace? Yes - the world famous Hampton Court Maze. Hurrah!
When we got in, Helen had a Plan, and said 'let's always choose the most unlikely path - like the one going towards the outside and not towards the middle.'
Well, I said that that sounded like a really stupid idea to me, and would result in us going round and round and round until dinner time and we'd have to be rescued by the Staff.
But - and this was most irritating - she was RIGHT, and despite a couple of false turns, we eventually found ourselves in the middle! And here is Helen in the middle to prove it.
That was tremendous fun! And my week 24 Challenge - done!
