Good morning, all. I've woken early (what a surprise!!) after a splendid night's sleep in a very comfortable and roomy bed in a room that is just right for temperature. The kettle is on and there's no essentials on the list for today. Once in a while, that is nice although I don't think I would like it all the time, do you?
The drive up was surprisingly easy. Even the M11 and getting onto the A14 was a lot less hairy than I had anticipated and once on the A14, I was nearly here anyway. On the way I located Wimpole Hall (tomorrow's little jolly) - couldn't miss it really - and Anglesea Abbey is also dead easy to get to from here today so all is well. I gather the snowdrops are lovely at Anglesea right now and it's opening earlier than usual which means they are expecting plenty of visitors so I won't hang around too much after breakfast.
Dinner was delicious, all the nicer for not having to clear up afterwards. I do love brie, bacon and cranberry and the chips were crunchy without and fluffy within - everything a self respecting chip should be. Thankfully, there are no after-effects (yet), just that dull ache that I can live with if I have to.
It didn't stop me sleeping anyway!
Hopefully I will have some photos for tomorrow's entry. In the meanwhile, I will enjoy my coffee and wish you a lovely day, whatever the weather.
