We're home. As I haven't got a nice Cotswold pic to show you here's another one from our hols - this time of the view to the sea from Compton Acres.
We had a nice weekend pottering about, we visited Stow-on-the-Wold on Saturday morning and spent the afternoon at Hailes Abbey, where close by was an amazing early church with fantastic medieval wall paintings. The pictures showed a man hunting a hare with dogs on one side of the church and a giant figure of St Christopher on the other side. Above the choir stalls were pictures taken from the Beastary of strange mythical creatures. It was a very magical space.
Yesterday we went to Broadway for the Italian market which was absolutely rubbish - about four stalls, no bread, no icecream, no pizza and precious little of anything else - very disappointing. We also went to Cheltenham for the huge carboot sale which was great fun. The belles found books and neon socks to buy so they were happy. Next stop now is to refill my empty pantry and tackle the laundry monster again before I finish my aditing and polishing of Crystal Clear.
