Well, yesterday wasn't as successful as Tuesday. It started off well with a stop off at Burwash Manor where I noseyed round the shops and bought a couple of things and some pretty fabric for (probably) a summer skirt. However, that was a bit of a mistake because by the time I got to Wimpole Hall fifteen minutes further down the road, the somewhat limited car park was chokka-full. At the moment, their overflow car park is closed and several areas of the main car park were also cordoned off and you could see why. I truly wouldn't fancy trying to get my car out of the mud - actually, I wouldn't like to try getting myself out of my car through the mud either.
After driving round and round with more cars arriving and none leaving, I decided to give up, came back, had a little drive around Cambridge (some lovely old buildings) and then went back to my room to chill. Actually, it worked well for me as I had rotten backache and then it started raining a bit so I reckon I was in the best place.
I'd brought magazines and hadn't read any of them as well as having my knitting, so it was nice and cosy with plenty of coffee and with healthy fruit and natural yogurt for lunch.
If I leave the hotel straight after breakfast I could take a detour and go to Wimpole this morning but at the moment I just want to get home really. This isn't a pity party, it's just how it is. I will definitely come back again though, once everything has settled down again.
See you all back home again!
