Holiday fun...........part 4

After our early morning we decided a gentle day was in order so off to Thorpness we went.
Have you been there? You need to go, it's amazing.
Built as a holiday village by Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie in1910 in a Tudor style it looks really ancient, but's not!
A bit like a film set! There's an air of St Mary Mead about the place, you get my drift!
We liked it.
Hope you like it too.
We did the old fashioned thing and hired a rowing boat, it's a kind of old fashioned place!




It was very quiet.



Even the ducks were quiet!


Around the lake we rowed found a secluded backwater..........it's a big lake,
 and enjoyed lunch afloat.
We caught glimpses of The House in the Clouds


How mad is that! You can see it for miles


So of course we took a stroll to get a closer look. Past the very posh Golf Club, let me tell you there were people in jackets and ties in there, at 3 o'clock in the afternoon.

Here it is.
It's a water tower and the top floor (the house) is actually a games room!
Next door is this gorgeous windmill in the process of being restored.


Just reminds me of a model village, only full size.


This impressive entrance led through to some tennis courts.
Where some very polite teenagers were playing............in full tennis kit!


We really enjoyed our stroll around Thorpness even though it was a bit surreal!
I though this was a quintessential English scene, roses round the door and an old BSA bicycle.

Strange and wonderful place.
Did you like it?

Leaving Thorpness behind we returned to the real world, did you see that curtain twitch!

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.


Meet
 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer


Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.






I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!


Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
Finlay's birthday cake. Just so you all know, I'm never making a Thomas cake again, fiendishly tricky!

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.


That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! Love ♥Sue♥
