We’ve just had a little Staycation, ie a holiday at home. Maurice booked the 3 days off between Easter and the Royal Wedding, and ended up with a 10 day break from work! I have a problem with Staycations. Maurice is quite happy, being out at work every other week of the year, to potter about at home. He likes to get up late, walk the dog, have a nap, all very slow and tedious! Me, I’ve been at home full time for about 6 months, so I want to go out and about, do holiday type things, be a tourist in my own area, and not cook or do laundry or do housework!
We stayed around for the Easter weekend. The weather was unusually glorious and we enjoyed our locality right by the beach (see here for photos). We had a bit of disagreement after that about staying in or going out! Well, I think we came to a good compromise and did manage to go out a couple of times:
Parham House with Mum:
Parham House is in Storrington, and is an old English Manor House originally built in 1577, in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I! It has only had 3 different families living in it in all that time. We went to look at the gardens, we didn’t go in the house on this occasion.
The tulips were just a their best!
We loved these 2 pigs! They came running over oinking as we approached their pen!
And here…..drum roll please…taa daa… are my 9,999 th and 10,000th photos with my Nikon D70s! Both were taken in a little greenhouse. It was beautiful!
And to finish off a lovely afternoon, a very English cream tea! A pot of tea to drink, with a scone, jam and cream to eat, Wonderful!
I’ll be back with more tomorrow….
