One Day at a Time...

What a treat Monday was... time out to read and pray and reflect, in lovely surroundings, with a good friend.
This was the lovely little Summerhouse we booked for the day at Mulberry House.

And the view out to the gardens from the chair I spent a lot of the day reading in!

Some of the other inhabitants.

This bridge went from the main garden over to a little island to which only wing-ed creatures were invited. Though as we stood on the bridge we saw a nest in which was a lone baby surrounded by unhatched eggs. Unfortunately my photos of the nest were too blurred to post.

The face of friendship!
Just after we arrived, we tried to take a timed piccie - unfortunately the grass was a bit wet and you know you only get those 5 seconds...! It was a classic example of 'go sprawling on the ground and... click - there's the picture'! Well, I have to say though it is very therapeutic to start the day with a right good laugh (even if it comes with a sore ankle and lack of dignity)!

Well, that was Monday. Tuesday I spent feeling awful with a rotten head - what a difference a day can make! I suppose that's what happens sometimes when you actually slow down. Glad to be improving today anyway!

Add-on: By the way, the staff at Mulberry House are really nice and helpful. They brought us a tray of tea, coffee and biscuits in the morning and afternoon, and the lunch was lovely - they don't let you go hungry!

How wonderful Michelle! It's sound like my idea of a perfect day, not so keen on Tuesday though - glad your better.

Oh! New post on my blog btw, so we're both posting in blogland!

Best Wishes,

How fantastic! You could just rent it for the day? And they brought tea?
Sounds like a wonderful day.

Yep, it was great - we had the summerhouse from 9.30am to 5pm and it only cost us £38.00, which included the two lots of tea and coffee plus lunch (very nice!) for both of us! And we could enjoy the grounds and make use of the lounges and library if we wanted to. Highly recommended!

That's an absolute bargain - what a fab idea and it looks really peaceful
