Window Wednesday — Warwick Castle

  Savages.   Despite our favourite family saying being (in the most pompous voice we can muster) “We aren’t savages” we were.  Well our ancestors certainly were.  And despite all the history and majesty of Warwick Castle that is the one over-riding feeling I come away with.  Horrible Histories is not wrong.   A moat

Window Wednesday — Welford Park

Sometimes I think I want to be buried, and other times I think I want to be cremated.   I suppose I need to make my mind up really or my family will have no idea what to do after my demise and if they get it wrong (through no fault of their own) it

Window Wednesday – Selborne

We have seen the signs to Gilbert White’s house so many times that we thought it might be worth a trip to finally see it.  That and we only had a couple of hours to spare on Sunday morning to go out and take photos.   But then when we got to Selborne it was

Window Wednesday — Home

(Forgive me, this one is more wordy than usual!) It is funny isn’t it, how sometimes something can occur to you, not in a thunderbolt kind of way but in a more gradual way.   A sort of drip feed realisation over time. For years I have thought that our house made me unhappy, an

Window Wednesday — Winchester Cathedral

The window above might be one of the most impressive windows I have ever seen.  And Winchester Cathedral might be one of the most impressive buildings I have ever entered, it being one of the largest cathedrals in Europe.   Even back in the day (and I am talking 1500 years) ago it was a place
