Had a good week. Weather mixed with some snow. Thank you for the flowers and shortbread – a nice welcome gift. The flowers lasted the week, the shortbread only 1 day. The house was lovely & warm. The floorboards and doors were a bit squeaky.

– very quiet and restful – we should have taken advantage of this and just sat and read books in the large, inviting, cosy armchairs, instead of rushing around to so many different places! So much to do and not enough time!
