When one takes 'time off', one is apt to get rather carried away.
Time becomes . . . almost . . . irrelevant . . .
One look at one's watch and exclaims: Is that the time? 4 o'clock already? Time for tea!
I ask AGA what day it is and when we have looked at the newspaper and obtained the answer, we are amazed that a week has seemingly flown past, spent in idle, silken, luxuriousness!
And so, it is with some surprise that I realise that it has been over two months since I have visited my bijou blog residence!!
Mind you, we have not really been idle...
We have been frolicking in the countryside:
We have indulged in truly delicious beers:
(I should say 'I' as AGA doesn't care for beer...)
We have met some new friends:
And a possible foe:
We have investigated things up high:
And things down low:
We have popped in, downstairs:
We have partaken of afternoon tea on the terrace:
And indulged in more hearty fare amongst the locals:
(As an aside, can I just add that we thoroughly enjoyed 'pie night' at an old coaching inn, in Leicestershire)
Visited long-dead Saints:
Journeyed to ruined castles:
And visited some not so ruined, palatial residences:
We have stopped off at unusual places:
Seen some unusual people:
And strolled through some wonderful gardens:
We have bared our lower legs and hiked up to the high places:
(At all times taken care of our personal safety:)
We have seen some fabulous things:
Been at hand for some memorable occasions:
We have returned, are happily ensconced - and now back in business.
