Big News Day Two at Barrington Pottery
Yesterday was a momentous day for us here
at Barrington Pottery.
Marion Gave up her full time job
to come and work with Me at the Pottery.
It's a huge move for us and not something we have done lightly
so yesterday was our first day,
We decided to have a day out
and started by taking Caddy for a walk up on the hill.
We then went to Tintinhull Garden nr Yeovil
This is a very calm and relaxing place, which gave us some
time to talk about the road ahead.
Never miss a chance to see Rhubarb forcers in place
doing their job and looking Fab.
I just liked the sense of scale this picture gives you.
and these Huge Roses were a delight.
In the field opposite were a dozen or so sheep that had
just been shorn
This little chap looked funny as he scrathed an itch
against the gate.
We then went to Montacute House,
a magnificent Elizabethan House
and certainly one of the most spectacular in England.
built between 1588 - 1601
And talking of roads ahead, how's this for a drive way?
Now that's what I call a hedge
This is the side of the house.
and this is the back or the front
I can't quite remember.
with so much going on it's hard to remember every thing.
This is the back of the house I'm sure
we loved this wood paneling, and if you look closely at
the chair they place teasles on them to stop people sitting on them.
and that's not all the news, while we were in Yeovil
we've also done a deal to trade in the Hangover
for a younger more reliable estate car.
Pics of that next week when we collect it.
I'm so excited about stuff at the moment it's all happening.
I know Marion is going to be great to have around, some one to work with
and discuss Ideas.
I can't wait!
