R.I.P. Poppy

POPPY 23-7-1996 to 25-2-2014
Sorry for the delay in postings but we had to have Poppy put to sleep on Tuesday.
She was a constant companion for us both for seventeen and a half years and for the last five years had been a "Retirement Advisor" for me.
To say that she will be missed is an understatement...
Normal service will be resumed shortly.

H.P.B. Sibton Park - The Long Room

This is the spectacular 'lounge' at Sibton Park where tea and scones are provided for you on arrival. It's also where the excellent bondholders dinners are held. These are a great way to enjoy a first class meal and meet fellow bondholders to share experiences - usually 'first class' - of H.P.B.

H.P.B. Sibton Park

Just back from a very wet week in Kent at the Holiday Property Bond "Sibton Park"

Right by the entrance is Sibton Park Cricket Club and we knew we were in for a wet week when we saw their pitch. 
Lots more photos of our week to follow...

Lunchtime Stopover

Finally completed this 1000 piece jigsaw which was a lot harder than it looks!
It's called "Lunchtime Stopover" and we thought it quite appropriate.
We bought it in an Oxfam shop in Middlewich while we were cruising on our boat Stella

One of our footpath walks - this time between Christmas and New Year from Ayot St.Lawrence.
Not many of us as quite a few were away.

Medieval Tiles At Redbourn Museum

Here are the tiles which were made by children at our summer 'Medieval Mayhem' event.
They have all been fired by our potter friend and are waiting for better weather before being mounted on a wall in the garden.
I think you will agree that they are very good indeed?
