Well I'm popping in to see how your week is going?
Mine has been average, but I have felt a little more in control this week :))
If that is actually possible!
But I wanted to share these photos with you.
On the weekend when my family were visiting,
my mother and I went to a country fair held in the gardens of this glorious old home.
We got there early to ensure a car park,
and wandered round the gardens and through the old trees and looked at all the wares for sale.
There were jams and silk scarves, handmade books and babies clothes, cane baskets and womens clothes, alpaca blankets, bunches of flowers and hats. And a refreshment table that had the most divine looking bad things and the smell of coffee floated in the air.
Several of the rooms in the house had been done up with furnishings as the owner ran an interior design business.
But the most exciting part of the day was listening to my father tell me stories about when he was a child and how he used to play there, and
that the house and the land it sat on belonged to his grandmother many years ago.
He told us tales of what it was like when his mother grew up there.
Where the fountain is now used to be a tennis court.
What a marvellous morning we had!
What memories were stirred,
what imagination worked over time!
Here's looking forward to the weekend :)
