Oooops - Cap'n John

Remember What Not To Say In Front Of Small Children.

A six-year-old goes to the hospital with her mother to visit her Grandpa. When they get to the hospital, she runs ahead of her mother and bursts into her Grandpa's room. "Grandpa, Grandpa," she says excitedly, "as soon as my mother comes into the room, make a noise like a frog!"

"What?" said her Grandpa?

"Make a noise like a frog because my mum said that as soon as you croak, we're all going to Disney World!"

Cadhay Manor 1

When I posted those photos over the weekend of Honiton, I did say that the reason we were there is that we were killing time before our visit to Cadhay Manor. That is a fascinating house, built in Tudor times, renovated in Georgian times and as it had then been allowed to fall somewhat into a poor state, the present owners have done it up and now let the whole house as a Wedding venue.

The rooms are beautiful, with Tudor furniture (that I wanted to take home as souveneirs, Georgian silver (in locked cases!!), and modern furniture made by the present owner ... and a couple of those pieces could easily have slipped home with me!

It was a fun day.
