For so many days recently
I have thought...
"this will be the day that I start writing my blog again!"
It is all so easy to stop doing things
but ....oh so difficult to pick it up again!
And even after I sat down, this afternoon,
in the sun
laptop on my knee...
things did not go well for me.
As I tried to use a different computer
and blogger wouldn't let me in!!
Anyway here I am!
How are you all??
I used to hear from so many of you
but I expect that few...if any
will remember me!
To catch up....
well I completed 4 years of my Open University
degree in Classics
but have had to stop
for a while
as there are so many health issues in my life,
my husband's and my mother's.
I have been awarded a Diploma in Higher Education
but will have to complete another
2 years if I want to succeed with the degree!!
It was my mother's birthday a couple of weeks ago
and so we had a big family party
After all she is 99!!
This is not the venue but my cousin and I took Mum
to the Ettington Park Hotel
for a cup of tea
the day before her party.
It really is an incredible place.
I believe they made the film
"Hush, hush sweet Charlotte' here??
The church has only the facade still standing!
The interior seems to look almost Moroccan?
This fireplace is in the entrance hall
This is the library. It too, is ornate.
There are secret doors in here.
This is where they conduct marriages.
Perhaps the doors are for the bride to escape?
The doorway out of the library
and the lounge
We truly had a lovely afternoon!
I really hope to continue writing here
and sharing things
I do hope to connect with some old friends and, hopefully, make some new!
Life is pretty difficult, health wise,
at the moment so
I do hope to
catch up with you all again soon!
