Today was supposed to be a practical day, getting things done around the house like a bit of painting but first buy your paint, so off to Homebase.
Now I know from the radio that some of you have had dreadful weather today so I do feel a little guilty saying this but we have had a glorious day and driving to Homebase this morning I got distracted (nothing new there then)and I started cloud watching. I wasn't driving by the way, just in case you were wondering.
Cloud watching is something I have never outgrown since childhood, finding animals, faces and things in the shapes of the clouds. It was a favourite game for me and my Mother and today was the perfect day for it.
I can see a dog sitting up,what can you see?
It seemed such a waste to spend such a beautiful day decorating so I suggested a coffee at Felbrigg Hall on the way home. Mr T will agree to anything if it delays the decorating.
We had company for our coffee break.
Then on getting back to the car we found we were parked right next to the walled garden and being NT members ( free entry, well sort of) and both easily distracted we decided to have a wander round.
Warning lots of photos ahead!!
We made lots of friends.
Some noisier than others.
Guinea Fowl are really really noisy
These are now my best friends, I did invite them to come and stay but Mr T wasn't so sure.
The old Dove cote is lovely and still has Doves in it.
And the handsome cockerels dining room.
Then there's the Garden itself which I will let speak for itself.
A Much better way to spend a morning than decorating don't you think.
We spent the afternoon in our own garden and never got around to the painting. Never mind there's always tomorrow that's if I don't find something else to do.
