This photograph was taken last weekend at Tredegar House in Newport, South Wales. It fits the theme perfectly. Not only have the stones been arranged by hand to imitate an ancient setting, but it was as though the young lads had arranged to sit on the altar stone at that precise moment, especially for my… Read More Weekly Photo Challenge – Arranged
I’m exhausted! Far too tired to blog. Isn’t that silly? Blogging doesn’t really take any effort. I’ve pictures of Things to post, and things I want to tell you, but they will have to wait. Back soon. Just need a bit more sleep….. In the meantime, there are and have been a few scheduled posts… Read More I’ve been quiet….

Firstly, the weather was much too good to stay inside for long.… Read More No Time for Customers!
This is a little late for those at Missenden Abbey, but I had decided that this was the weekend to introduce The Things to our customers.

In the freezer of course. I managed to persuade them that refrigerator was a… Read More It’s only good manners….
Well, to be truthful, that should be ‘the Northern Front’. I decided that today had to be a quiet day, so I have taken our visitors in hand, and we have spent time in the garden. It was warm and sunny, so, where better to be than the garden? First, we checked the new bronze… Read More All quiet on the Western Front
You know that we have visitors at the moment. I should have known that it would be dangerous to invite them to a dyer’s house. This was the view that greeted me this morning. Somehow, those feet look very pleased with themselves. and judging by this photograph it wasn’t just the feet that were… Read More I should have known better…..
