I'm here

I'm back! I haven't gone anywhere...
....apart from a little holiday in Sussex
We travelled  south and stayed in sunny Uckfield, although admit to switching the central heating on once or twice as it was rather chilly
We stayed at a friends house (no, not this one....this was Charlston House which we loved) while they were away on holiday
Our National Trust membership cards nearly wore out! We visited Monks House and loved this too
Standen House was a delight
London by night as lively and lit up as ever
We had a lovely time
but it was ever so nice to come back to our own house
even if I need to repaint the picnic bench...and don't feel confident in opening house and garden to the public..just yet!

Welcome home, doesn't that feel good. We enjoyed London too, but so hectic. We're glad to be home to our swamp.

Looks like you had a lovely and varied time! While you were away we were at Inverkirkaig again enjoying the sunshine!

Looks like a lovely time but home has a wonderful view, too.

Welcome back! Although I've missed you, I am so pleased to see that you have had a lovely time; but I love to see the photos of your pretty home too. Love to you both, Di XX

Really your home takes some beating, even though I am biased about the loveliness of Sussex. I think Standen is probably our favourite NT house and garden. We used to go there a lot when the children were little. Did you play croquet? Good to see you back.

Your garden , weathered bench and all , looks very welcoming indeed . And I love the house !

Lucille, we didn't play croquet while at Standen, but we looked on while others played.
Standen is a beautiful and inspirational house and I was reminded of you when reading the William Morris quote concerning useful and beautiful..

SmitoniusAndSonata, thank you for your comments on my blog and now I've discovered your blog..!
