Swallows & Amazons

Working for Heather is not like working at all.
On Wednesday we went to an amazing house, where we measured up for 2 sofas and three chairs. It was designed by Lutyens, had its own private lake and was just like out of an Arthur Ransome book.
"The Coot Club" is the book that's set near us here in Norfolk. Richard & I have read it many times & keep promising ourselves we'll go on a tour of the Norfolk Broads and recreate the true 'Swallows & Amazons' experience.
We decided to make a party of it & had a picnic outside. The rain held off & we drank "lashings of ginger beer" on pink petal party plates. I made meringues & we had clotted cream & strawberries too.

It's getting pretty chilly around here, especially at nights. That means it must be warming up for you.

Not neccessarily Skips although we are a bit warmer than you..
I hear here's been a hell of a lot of rain in sunny New South Wales.

Yay Thomsey.
Brilliant idea. Better take your 'Sou-Wester' with you.
All the roses are out at Heather's. I bought her a new one for her birthday.....looked like raspberry ripple icecream.

I want to play in the Englishness too! Does Heather need another employee?

Kelly D. Heather would love another employee. She's got more work than I can help her with.
How are your loose cover skills now? Maybe you could be in charge of sales & marketing from the caravan.
