We went to a "Garden Party", no not at Buckingham Palace, but at my niece's in Bury St Edmunds, she and hubby were celebrating the finalisation of 3 years hard work getting their house into order and gorgeous it is too, all done by her husband. He's retired so had a few things to keep him "busy" LOL. Here is a piccy of the garden layout with the hired waitresses, well you have to do things properly don't you LOL. I forgot to take a piccy of the fabulous food, I was too busy tucking in! The lady in the B&W dress is my niece. The second is the cloakroom which was his last job.
We then went on to visit my brother and SIL in Lincolnshire, we always go for a spin around the countryside when we are there and during one of these journeys we came across this fabulous empty and unloved cottage, I fell in love with it and my dreams of bringing it back to life with love was quite overwhelming.
If any of you are old enough to remember the 40's film "The Enchanted Cottage" with Robert Young and Dorothy McGuire a beautiful post war film about a disfigured man coming home from the war, it reminded me of it. If I won the lottery I would just have to have it at any price. Ahhhh!
This is a little of the countryside around where we went.
That's all for today, hope you enjoyed seeing a little of our break.
