Something Was Wrong Last Monday

... England had a Bank Holiday, and the weather was lovely!  Truly felt so wrong, even though it was lovely.

Christine came over for the day, and after an early lunch I drove us to Sand, in Sidbury.  As well as the famous stately homes, we still have houses that are privately owned, and open a few days a year to help with the upkeep.  Sand is one.  We were given a guided tour, as well as a history lesson, by the owner.  Obviously there are no indoor photos, but for a house that dates back to 1200 it was fascinating.

The small original building was ignored in 1300 when a new building was built, and then in 1500's the original was added to, thus making a Tudor house.  The owners rented it out for years which meant no real changes were made, although lighting, indoor plumbing etc was added at the beginning of the 20th century.

2. Kitchen: favourite comfort food?

Well, tonight being a Saturday I shall be eating Chicken & Chips (fries) ... still in the paper!  That is a great favourite.

I also love tomatoes, grapes (especially red ones), Cadbury milk chocolate, doughnuts, and roast chicken crisps (chips)

... Oh boy, now I am hungry!
