Minibreak



The week before last was bonkers: stacks of jewellery-making, starting teaching at The Make Lounge in London and fruit pie coordination at a village picnic.

As I said, bonkers. After all that I definitely qualified for zombie status. Mr P took one look at me and suggested I have a break I thought a nap would be good but he insisted I have a night away.

I rang Mrs TH and a day or two later we stayed at Rifleman's cottage run by Pomona and the Head Chef.

Cue the following:

woodburning stove, lovely bloggy chat, homemade flapjack, fish and chips, roast pork dinner, wine, picking hedgerow fruit, stupendous breakfast, trip to the seaside, apple crumble and custard,

...not necessarily in that order. There was also a tour round their beautiful permaculture garden, introduced to pigs, dogs and chickens and were given a crate of homegrown fruit to take home. Ace! The only drawback? I forgot my camera card.

There are two bedrooms - one double and one twin so enough space for a whole family.

It's a fabulous place to stay. You will be looked after.

You should have that Mr of yours framed! Well done, Excellent One. I find knowing when to take a breath, is a mighty handy skill to have.

Gosh! No wonder you needed a break! I'm knackered having just read a page of your posts!
Your new jewellery pieces are beautiful. The photos of the girls are beguiling. You in the North Sea...brrrrilliant (as the washing powder ad says!).
Pomonas' looks amazing; I will take a little looky there.
Sorry I have been rubbish at keeping in touch Emma, but, hey, I'm leaving a comment a mile long now!!!

I'm not the only one to have been sitting under blue skies! I think a week of blue sky should be compulsory for everyone once a year. I love England more than anywhere else, but needed the heat and light of Greece for my sanity.
I woud have loved our mini break at Pomona's as well.
By the way, I love the owl and the sycamore seeds on your silver nature table.
Just look at all the comments.
